The Spirit of Christmas Fair 2015, the ever popular home of Christmas shopping, is returning to Kensington Olympia from 2nd to 8th November and will bring extraordinary style, design and elegance with it this year. The fair has an exciting new collection of independent boutiques, all hand-picked for their quality and diversity. You will be able to discover exclusive winter collections, unique gift ideas and gain invaluable festive inspiration.
With a vast array of fashion, beauty, decorative accessories, children’s and men’s gifts, the fair will guarantee a shopping experience like no other. Welcoming brands that are not usually found on the high street, it is a unique shopping opportunity to buy for yourself as well as gifts for family and friends, whilst also making the most of the fine dining and enthusing talks on offer.
The interactive and engaging workshops that will be held throughout the week are sure to provide inspiration, skills and techniques for all aspects of Christmas. From the ‘Perfect Christmas Desserts’ with Graham Hornigold of Yauatcha to ‘A Christmas Party’ by Sophie Conran and Flower Arranging with Phil Hammond from the Dorchester, the expert-led workshops will be an opportunity not to be missed.
The Spirit of Christmas Fair would not be complete without the delicious Food Hall – full to the brim with gastronomic delights from the finest artisan producers and Great Taste award-winners. Famed for their Christmas fayre, the hall will offer every tasty treat from handmade chutneys and preserves, sumptuous liquors and chocolates to specialist cheeses, olive oils, award-winning Christmas cakes and mouth-watering puddings. Not only is there the chance to source food, the Mosimann’s Winter Restaurant, the appointed caterers to HRH The Prince of Wales, offers breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea and is the perfect excuse to sit back and relax, and enjoy the seasonal menu.
The Fair was launched in 2001 at Olympia, London and due to high demand, another day has now been added to make it a seven day shopping extravaganza. Monday will also be a preview day where the first 3,000 visitors will receive a goody bag and a ticket to return on another day. The Fair celebrates the start of the Christmas season and builds on the Spirit brands values of setting the benchmark for high quality products from hundreds of the UK’s finest independent retailers. The fair’s partners include; Mosimann’s, Louis Roederer, True Grace, Green & Spring, The Biscuiteers and The Great Taste Awards.
