Lots of streets host shopping events at Christmas, but this has to be up there with our very favourite of London’s offerings. Lamb’s Conduit Street and Rugby Street, home to some of the loveliest shops like Pentreath and Hall, Persephone Books, Oliver Spencer and Folk comes alive with festive cheer for its annual Christmas Carol.
The day includes a 2pm raffle drawn by Rupert Everett, songs from the Chaps Choir, a 3pm reading of Mr Charles Dickens’ Novel by Alastair Stewart, Alexei Sayle and more, carol singing with cantiamotet as well as mulled wine, oysters, mince pies, roasted chestnuts and gingerbread. Plus the chance to do your Christmas shopping – and infinitely more appealing than going online. Celebrating 10 years of trading, the new Pentreath and Hall Alphabet Book would make a lovely gift, £40 with a canvas bag to go with it.
