A small, friendly Christmas fair set in the beautiful surroundings of Highgate’s Literary & Scientific Institution offering a wide range of antiques and local crafts as well as items from Indie Books (publishers of From Syria With Love), culinary crafts from Kitchen Provisions, hand-made cards from Save Me I’m Wild, children’s clothing from Olive Pip Clothing plus jewellery and textiles from Antonia Graham.
For food-lovers, there will be a Cookbook Swap Shop where you can bring a cookbook from home and swap it for a new one, wine tasting and a literary-themed pop-up Cafe serving cakes, sweets and snacks such as Proust’s Madeleines, Geoffrey Chaucer’s Apple Pie, Walt Whitman’s Coffee Cake, Sausage Rolls from Harry Potter and Turkish Delight from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. For children, there will be a Scavenger Hunt (with goodie bags from Rude Health’s new kid’s range) and a Craft Room where they can create hand-made Christmas cards themed around well known Christmas books.
Earlybird tickets include a freshly baked 'Proust's Madeleine'.
Regular admission on the day is £1.50 for adults, children can come for free.
