Enjoy a special weekend full of fun and festivity and get some shopping advice for super stylist and C&TH fashion writer Martha Ward…
The Chelsea Christmas Shopping Weekend
Nothing beats Chelsea in Christmas and for one weekend only on 2nd and 3rd December 2017, we bring you the Chelsea Christmas Shopping Weekend. Not only will the area be bedecked in all its finest festive frippery but shops will be putting on their best show – with special offers, added extras and the odd mince pie or two – to make your Christmas shopping a pleasure not a pain.
You’ll find a warm welcome in the area’s fashion and beauty shops, which will be offering everything from complimentary champagne to free gifts with purchase and expert consultations. Local restaurants and bars will keep energy levels topped up with tasty titbits, steaming mugs of hot chocolate and wintry cocktails.
For a full list of participating shops, see below. For complete details on offers, visit inchelsea.co.uk
