City Showcase Markets
Dalston Christmas Market is a new one-day artisan, designer and live music event from City Showcase Markets, created to complement their highly successful annual Soho Flea Market (held each June in Dean Street), which this year drew well over 15,000 people.
Dalston Christmas Market will take place in Dalston Square and other locations around Dalston on Sunday 1st December 2013 and offers a vibrant alternative to more traditional ‘German style’ Christmas markets. The market will also be accompanied by a live stage featuring music, comedy and performances by local school choirs.
The organisers, City Showcase, are calling for young creatives (including artists, artisans and designers) and local businesses to get involved with what will be this year’s most glamorous Christmas Market. The deadline for submissions is 4th October 2013.
Dalston Christmas Market will present the perfect trading platform for innovative goods, food and crafts made by the next generation of designers and artists for which the London borough of Hackney including Dalston and the surrounding areas of Hoxton, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington are heralded. Stallholders will be selected by a panel from an open call out, on the basis of the design and/or quality of their product. The selected traders will be given advice and support to make their stall a success.
This family day out will appeal to anyone wanting to enjoy an alternative Christmas shopping experience in Dalston.
Nanette Rigg, Founding Director of City Showcase added:
“Following the continued and growing success of Soho Flea Market, we decided to broaden out our reach with an event that could easily combine cutting edge design with a vibrant local community in one of London’s emerging creative hotbeds.”
Products from Soho Flea Market stallholders including Red Dot award-winning Rokos design; fabulous leather bags by N’Damus, and beautiful home accessories from Etoile Home and Yorke Design can now also be purchased from the webshop on the City Showcase Market website, www.cityshowcasemarkets.com.
