NOI Christmas Market

24 November, The Curtain, Shoreditch

This festive event is billed as ‘A Christmas Market Powered By Women, Open To Everyone’ – sign us up! Every stall at the NOI Xmas Market is from a women powered small biz who have come together through the NOI Club, founded by the ace Paola Garbini.

The event is free to attend and taking place at the lush The Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch (which you might have seen on our stories recently) from 11am to 7pm on Saturday 24th November. It’s the perfect excuse to get your gang together, shop for some amazing unique gifts and celebrate with a cocktail in the hotel bar.

See you there!



Ealing Christmas Market
21 November – 24 December 2018
Daily from 10am

For the third festive season running, Ealing Broadway shopping centre will be transformed into a winter wonderland with gifts, twinkling lights and – importantly delicious German, Turkish and Indian food to scoff while ticking off your list.

Rustic wooden cabins will be overflowing with eclectic homeware, accessories and jewellery – I’m after some yummy smelling beard products from Sweyn Forkbeard and an alpaca poncho from Mamacha. Oh, and a turkish/german doner kebab, of course. How about you?
