We've dragged the tree down from the attic, untangling the fairy lights and dropped a few baubles but finally succeeded in turning Protem HQ into a twinkling yuletide grotto fit for any Santa.
Although we have been busy, we noticed all the seasonal fun happening around us in the Wharf. So here is a rundown of all the fun and festive activities from Ice Skating to visiting Santa to add some magic and wonder to your Christmas in Canary Wharf.
