Winter Wonderland Comes To Wimbledon

The town is lit up by its annual winter event

Wimbledon's Winter Wonderland 2011 event brought the town centre alive with a parade, fireworks, celebrities, live music and dance as well as gift and food stalls.

The parade on Thursday was led (left) by the traditional Samba dancers from the Taste of Brasil.

Local schools, community groups, dancers and entertainers followed behind them, including children from Haslemere and Morden Primaries (see more pictures below).

Among the event's highlights were the spectacular fireworks from the roof of Centre Court shopping centre, which were switched on by Sam Attwater and Anna Williamson from New Wimbledon Theatre's Christmas panto, Dick Whittington.

AFC Wimbledon were also on the Piazza, with a special football game, while first team players were among those joining the parade.

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Gilli Lewis-Lavender (see below) browsed the stalls before taking part in the parade. is a Wonderland sponsor
