For one night only, Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard are closing their streets to traffic and inviting Londoners to a 20% off shopping night in Covent Garden. Last week we gave you a little taster of some of the exciting activities that will be taking place, but here are more details to really whet your appetite.
On Thursday 30 May, shoppers will be able to reclaim the streets between 5-9pm and shop for less at over 120 stores including Diesel, Fred Perry, Jack Wills, Tatty Devine, Kiehls, Benefit, Office, Urban Outfitters, Neal's Yard Remedies, Orla Kiely, The White Company, plus many more. Fashion, beauty and homeware stores are all taking part, so you can indulge in some hassle-free shopping of your favourite brands at discount prices.
However, it's not just shopping for less on offer at this MasterCard special event. Live music will accompany you around St Martin's Courtyard courtesy of vintage singing duo Verity and Violet, while DJ Lee Hume is spinning his eclectic beats at Urban Outfitters. Between shops contortionist, burlesque and balancing act performers will enthral crowds from the window of Coco de Mer.
If you think that shopping, music and live entertainment can be thirsty work, then head to one of the pop-up bars that will be scattered throughout the traffic-free streets. Why not try a 'wild' garden cocktail with The Cocktail Gardener Lottie Muir, or maybe satisfy your sweet tooth with one of ice-creamist Ruby Violet's combination flavours?
Shoppers will also be able to claim some exclusive freebies. Complimentary BLOOM Gin and Tonic with strawberries will be served from the St Martin's Courtyard pop-up bar, and Seven Dials' vintage tricycles will spoil you with free Pimms, retro sweets, popcorn and candyfloss. The first 200 MasterCard cardholders who spend over £100 at participating stores will also take home an exclusive goodie bag worth £50!
If you need a sit-down after all that action, then you also have the opportunity to learn how to repair and rework old clothes while you rest, at Patagonia's Traid Sew Good workshop.
