Christmas is Coming

Today is – aside from being Friday – 25 November. So, yes, that means exactly one month before Christmas Day. Let the panic commence.

Thankfully, help is at hand from a sleigh-full of designers clamouring to peddle their festive wares to the more discerning Christmas shopper. Here’s a round-up of just a few of the events coming up.

Wobble & Squint Christmas Fair

Wobble & Squint, also known as Errol Fernandes and Anne-Laure Franchette, are a duo of artists/curators, and the pair are inviting creative types to take part in a unique art, music and game-playing extravaganza in London’s Stoke Newington on 17 December.

They are currently accepting applications to sell at the fair, but all wares must have a subversive edge. Suggestions include Christmas Loves and Hates, Christmas overkill, personal Christmas traditions, shock horror Christmas presents and Christmas compilations. Applications must be submitted by 30 November.
