F.Y.I. Londoners – Dates to pencil in this month!

Well, it’s officially December and in the run up to Christmas we have so many fabulous fairs, shows and events cropping up so here’s a few London-based events to enter into your diaries:

[7 – 9th December] East London Design Show, Shoreditch Town Hall  This annual event brings together the best of the UK’s  finest designers  ranging from artists, typographers, makers, printers and many more …all under one roof, in Shoreditch. It’s open to public this weekend with late night shopping on Friday so do pop along and show your support for great British design! Tickets are at £5 but I’ve just bought mine on Groupon – two tickets for £5! An absolute Bargain! For more information please click hereeast-london-design 2012
  2.

There will be around 50 designers-makers with their bespoke products on show so why not pop along for a wee nosey – who knows, there may be something you’d like to treat yourself with! Affordable workshops are also available….not to mention copious amounts of festive nibbles and drinks!

And lastly, don’t forget the…

Christmas Arcade held at the Somerset House, London [16 November 2012 – 6 January 2013]. Open daily, this new ‘pop-up’ mall is housed in the beautiful (and newly refurbished!) West Wing that will showcase some of Britain’s finest  boutique brands and over 50 designer-makers! With the Skate set up against such a stunning backdrop what better excuse to get into the Christmas spirit!! I hope to be popping along myself so will give you my personal insight later!
