What the traders say...
Each of our #SE19Lates venues have their own activities happening each night. Drop-in and see what's happening. SE19Lates is Crystal Palace's festive late night shopping event, and it's happening THREE times in 2021 on THREE Thursdays: 2, 9 and 16 December.
We asked traders to share some hints about what they have planned and here's what some of them had to say...
The Bookseller Crow team is welcoming authors for ticketed events on the first two SE19Lates evenings, from 7:30pm. See website for booking details.
But, you can browse freely, wearing a mask of course, until 7:30pm. Lots of fantastic hand picked stock and vouchers.

The hardworking Secret Garden team will be open until 7pm on SE19 Lates Thursdays.
Christmas Tree season is in full flow and they have a fantastic selection of quality Christmas decorations and other winter planting supplies.
We're joined for the first time at SE19Lates by Crystal Palace Antiques and Modern, on Jasper Road. Right by Decorum and Theatro.
Open for browsing, exploring and sales. A huge space to explore and the doors will be wide open and welcoming you all.
"Expect a Christmassy atmosphere and treats." says Marie, who was busy hunting down some fairy lights when we last met.
A L'Etage 2 at the other end of Westow Hill at Christmas time is the thing of legends. A special Mulled wine recipe, warm atmosphere and wonderful purchases.
Tine's creative windows go into overdrive at Christmas, with A L'Etage 2's Advent window. A gift for every day of the month right up to Christmas Eve.
The A L'Etage 2 Advent Santas are keeping surprises under their hats!
How about one of these, or two? Or sample one of Theatro's other excellent signature cocktails.
SE19Lates exclusive on-the-night offer for shoppers.
2-4-1 Cocktails from opening time; and after shopping, from 8pm, enjoy a 20% discount on Food & Drink and enjoy music from their Thursday night pianist. Sounds like a great way to round-off the evening.
This is just a selection of the fun in store for the next THREE Thursdays in Crystal Palace.
