The early signs of Christmas are well documented. Festive fare appearing on the supermarket shelves, shorter days with colder nights closing in and the emergence of twinkling lights. Now we can add to that list the dates for the Mayfair Christmas Market, taking place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd December outside the Novikov Restaurant & Bar’s.
As in previous years the whole of Mayfair Place W1 will be closed off to traffic from 11am until 9pm, allowing visitors to eat, drink and shop at the hand-picked range of stall holders who will be presenting luxury gifts designed to make Christmas shopping that little bit easier.
Get things wrapped up in more ways than one thanks to Este Estilo’s collection of stoles, scarves and signature lace wraps, or perhaps one of Rubina Kapoor’s pashmina shawls. Meanwhile, snap up an original work by artist Tanja Möderscheim, whose still life and culinary paintings are created using a classical technique.
The market will also be one of the first opportunities to buy a collection of baubles, bangles and beads from new jewellery label Olivia & Pearl and returning favourite Boom Jewellery.
Sandy Bay London will offer an array of fragrances, whilst Byron and Brown’s luxury leather gift range is sure to find favour among discerning purchasers. Men are never easy to buy for but all that is set to change thanks to Norse’s natural grooming products for the bearded, the smooth-faced and the moustachioed.
No one will go hungry. Cinco Jotas’ celebrated acorn-fed 100% Ibérico ham will be available to taste on the day. Or why not pre-order the whole leg for your Christmas celebrations? In addition, the Novikov kitchens will be on hand to provide an abundance of delicious dishes throughout both days.
The ever-present Louis Roederer Ice Bar, along with Novikov DJs, Sally Kettle and Spencer Mac, will enliven weary shoppers and delight Christmas revellers alike. Carol singers, roaming minstrels and Father Christmas himself will entertain on both days, with a special guest appearance by Santa’s live reindeer on Saturday 2nd December. A fabulous event for all the family, entrance to the Mayfair Christmas Market is free of charge.
