Every year we say we’re gonna do it differently. Christmas, that is. And every year it’s a familiar variant on stuffing, turkey and grog, with a Del-Boy re-run thrown in. So if you want something novel to fill Granny’s stocking, go to Santa’s Ghetto, the alternative Christmas shopping experience. This graphical grotto, organised by design group Insect, runs from 2 to 24 December at Kingly Court, off London’s Carnaby Street. On sale will be posters, screenprints, customised trainers and other artwork by the Pictures on Walls posse: Banksy, Jamie Hewlett, Mode2, Faile, Pete Fowler and the Insects themselves.

Designed by Siemens Mobility, the Inspiro boasts in-train air conditioning and will consume 20% less energy than the existing fleet from the 1970s.
