Interactive Displays and Events
St. Pancras International is not just a railway station; it’s a cultural hub that hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year. During the holiday season, visitors can expect a series of interactive displays and events centred around the Christmas tree. From book signings to literary-themed workshops, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Within the Christmas tree, there are eight cozy nooks where both children and adults can indulge in the enchantment of Christmas, immersing themselves both figuratively and literally in the festive magic. In each alcove, speakers are installed, offering visitors the opportunity to select a five-minute excerpt from an exclusive collection of audiobooks and readings courtesy of Penguin Books. The featured authors include literary luminaries such as Charles Dickens, Beatrix Potter, Zadie Smith, Robin Stevens, Gabrielle Zevin, Alice Winn, Rick Riordan, Michael Morpurgo, Richard Osman, and Tom Fletcher. With two options available in each booth, guests can choose from a total of sixteen different audio experiences. These snug corners serve as a delightful free attraction for the entire family or as the perfect retreat to take a brief respite and unwind while traversing through St. Pancras.
