Secret Garden Party presents the The Secret Emporium Pop Up Christmas Market
A last chance to purchase your Crimbo gifts from a host of designer talent, with free performance art thrown in!
Sun 18th December 2011, 11:00am – 10:00pm
Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3PQ
Just when you thought that all the Christmas designer markets had finished along comes another corker: the Secret Garden Party presents the The Secret Emporium Pop Up Christmas Market for one day only at the Village Underground in Shoreditch - featuring a host of small artist designers of the type you might find in the famed Secret Market Emporium at one of their festivals. Alongside the usual stalls expect performance walkabouts and cabaret, all directed by Abby Forknall. Then the Best of London's Buskers will be performing on the Giant Hat Busking Stage and at 8pm there will be a special surprise performance. And I quite like the sound of the Grand Christmas Tree Auction: each designer is designing, making and donating a decoration to adorn the Secret Emporium Christmas Tree, so there will be an opportunity to win over 30 unique decorations from the talent of the future all for the price of a raffle ticket! Proceeds go to a homeless charity.
Whether or not a dead mouse in a silver box is a good thing to give at Christmas there's no denying that Kate Gilliland's jewellery that uses the bodies of 'found and treasured animals' is eye-catching.
Print maker Dan Hillier is an Emporium favourite.
Nylon Sky art deco inspired jewellery.
Chloe Boscher's extravagant prints and jewellery will be on sale.
Grace du Prez creates extravagant jewelled skulls for the well decorated wall.
Or how about Jobee Jo hand felted headwear?
Lucy Peacock brings her bold 80s inspired designs to the fair.
Wolf and Moon by Hannah Davis also features beautiful art deco/80s inspired jewels.
There will also be hand picked pieces by Mrs. Jones, who styles Kylie, and ten talented students from the RCA selling their wares. Best of all, it's FREE. Perfect for last minute shoppers, aka me. Join the facebook event here.
