Giving eager homebuyers a tantalising taste of Christmas in a new home, Guinness Homes are hosting ‘Put a Bow On It’ on Thursday 2nd December, from 6pm – 8pm, at Leaside Lock, their flagship development in Bromley-by-Bow.

Throughout the festive soirée, festive carols will be performed by East London Chorus, while prospective purchasers enjoy mince pies and hot chocolate.
