The sun is shining, flowers are blooming and the scent of freshly cut grass is in the air, which means it’s finally time to invest in a new spring wardrobe. Beat both the crowds and the traffic by heading to the Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard Spring Shopping Festival.
These two stylish areas will be closed to traffic from 12-5pm on Saturday 17 May, so you can saunter between shops, cafes, bars and restaurants with the benefit of 20% off at stores including Poste Mistress, Diesel, Kiehl’s, Orla Kiely and Pretty Ballerinas, with food from Timberyard, Kopapa, Bill’s and more.
Located between Soho and Covent Garden, Seven Dials is the essential shopping destination for cult beauty brands and top fashion and accessories labels, with a profusion of further womenswear, fashion and beauty housed in nearby St Martin’s Courtyard.
100 lucky shoppers will be given a tombola ticket for a chance to win some amazing prizes, and the first 50 shoppers to spend over £50 will be treated to a free WAH Nails manicure.
There will be a pop-up lawn around the Seven Dials monument, live music curated by Strummerville (a music charity set up by Joe Strummer’s friends and family), in-store DJs, makeovers, street food and free ice cream from the Snowflake Gelato stall. You’ll also have the opportunity to discover your ‘aura’ at Samantha Shannon’s ‘The Bone Season’ photo booth.
Be sure to stop by the Bloom Gin pop-up bar in St Martin’s Courtyard for a complimentary drink, and don’t miss a burlesque performance in Coco de Mer and the beauty bar at Blow Ltd.
