No, this doesn’t look very like Christmas, does it. The last flurry of autumn colour on the Kenwood lawns soon to host a serious Christmas show. But all around the house, preparations are well under way. Up by the Stable block, a huge lorry park has been created.
At the entrance to house massive wooden ‘presents’ encase projectors which will play lights all over the front of the house.
And I even found one cherry picker way over on the path down the east side of the lawn, strapping spolights into place. I was not sure whether they were just to light those trees or to play back on the facade of the house.
Meanwhile, anyone who wanted to identify the sights of London from the Kenwood viewpoint for the next few months (the Christmas show runs from the end of November to mid January) is out of luck as all the map now looks out over is hoarding!
