“This year’s annual Seven Dials Christmas Event was particularly important as it was an opportunity to provide a safe and inviting location in the heart of London’s West End and officially celebrate the start of the festive period, something we were not able to do last year. This is the first time we extended our celebrations to a three-day event,” said head of group marketing and communications at Shaftesbury, Karen Baines.
