Reindeers and a fairground replace traffic for Nag’s Head Christmas extravaganza

Christmas cheer spread to Nag’s Head when it hosted its yuletide extravaganza on Sunday.

Mince pies and mulled wine were the order of the day as thousands enjoyed a magical afternoon at the Holloway shopping area.

Traffic was replaced with a wonderland of reindeers, a Christmas market and fairground rides as Holloway Road was closed.

Islington Council leader Cllr Catherine West was among the 8,000 to 9,000 people present and said: “It was an amazing event for the whole community. It was wonderful to see so many people – young, old, families, couples, residents, visitors – coming together at Christmas.

“Nag’s Head is a great area and our town centre team and local businesses did the area proud with this event which really did deserve the word ‘extravaganza’.”
