Seven Dials & St Martin’s Courtyard Festival

Seven DialsThis Saturday 17th May 2014 from 12-5pm, Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard are hosting a free Spring Shopping Festival in Covent Garden. It’s a great chance to get shoppers and visitors in the mood for the festival season. This is a one day event with over 130 shops, bars and restaurants taking part. Plus they will be offering a special 20% discount. On the day the whole of Seven Dials will be traffic-free and full activities such as live music, DJ’s and makeovers.

I had the privilege of having a preview and tour around the stores, bars and restaurants taking part. Some stores that are participating include Kiehl’s, Franklin & Marshall Le Coq Sportif, Farah Vintage, Foxhall London, Clubhouse & Flesh & Bun, Diesel, Urban Outfitters and Peter Werth. Amazingly all stores are offering an exclusive discount. For stylish menswear there’s plenty to choose from, don’t miss Peter Werth, Carhartt, Cro’Jack, Foxhall London and Industrie.

If shoppers are in need of a rest they can relax in the mini Pimm’s garden and enjoy complimentary Pimm’s, popcorn and Snowflake Gelato ice cream or visit St Martin’s Courtyard for a complimentary drink from the Bloom Gin pop-up bar. Murdock London will also be offering cocktail tasting from their outdoor lounge area.
