For all those lost in the district of London known as W1 and elsewhere your attention is drawn to a harbour being erected each Saturday in December upstairs in the bar of The Social, the well-loved watering hole for the soul, at number 5 Little Portland Street. The Social Christmas Market will consist of a number of stalls which each week will present an alternative to that which is pedalled in the High Street nearby. This coming Saturday, the 1st December, market regulars Caught by the River will open their shop, I will be selling Vintage Fishing Printed Matter for the Soul and The Empress of Arcadia will let fly with a Flock of Sequinned Birds and other delights from her archive. Our ranks will be swelled by two of our staunch collaborators Laura Coxeter and her selection of Handmade Organic Raw Chocolates in Cardboard Boxes alongside Martin Clark & Anneliese Appleby of Tilley Printing who will be bringing the magic of their letterpress printed work to London for the day.
There will be hot food at the bar by Felix and Pi, cocktails for dancers and winter ale on tap & by the bottle for the thirsty. The doors will open at 12pm and will remain so until 6pm.
