O2 London, ,
This December, a raft of Britain’s best and brightest designers, crafters, hobbyists, and food and drink merchants will gather to showcase their talents at a three-day event that’s set to become a cornerstone of the UK’s crafting calendar. Handmade Christmas at The O2 takes place in the middle of December so fits perfectly with you wanting that special present or food for the Christmas table. Recent research has shown consumers are increasingly shunning the hegemony of the high street and seeking opportunities to find gorgeous gifts that are distinctly different and quirky British nibbles crammed with seasonal tastes and home-grown ingredients.
With hundreds of stalls, chalets and stands Handmade Christmas will sit comfortably within the steady buzz of the Entertainment District on the Live Quarter at The O2 and as it’s indoors, visitors can enjoy their visit whatever the weather. Visitors to the show can take part in workshops and demos provided by various crafty gurus from the craft scene plus get some fantastic special one of a kind gifts not available on the high street.
Specially organised in tandem with three concerts at The O2, Handmade Christmas will open its doors to an estimated 60,000 people attending The O2 over three days.
