I am so excited to be heading into good old London Town this weekend and joining the crowds that will be visiting the SEVEN DIALS AND ST MARTIN’S COURTYARD SPRING SHOPPING EVENT (Saturday 9 May 2015, 12-5pm)
Placed smack bang in the centre of town, London shopping destinations Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard, nestled between Soho and Covent Garden, are set to host a free shopping event on Saturday 9 May. For one day only from 12-5pm, over 120 shops, bars and restaurants will be offering a 20% discount. It makes a change to be in that neck of the woods for fun and not just for work, so why not see what this event has to offer? The whole of Seven Dials will be traffic-free with in-store and outdoor activities taking place throughout the streets and within St Martin’s Courtyard, just off Long Acre. Visitors can enjoy live music performances, street food, alfresco games, a pop-up lawn around the dial complete with deck chairs , lawn games and much more, transforming the landscape of this central London fashion village.
