SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND: The RCA Christmas Fete Is back !


5 – 7 DECEMBER 2014 Royal College of Art, Jay Mews entrance Kensington Gore, London SW7 2EU

Now in it’s third successful year the Royal College of Art’s Christmas Fete is back and bigger than ever. This year the traditional indoor market will offer Christmas drinks and delicacies as well as a public programme of festive performances and events running alongside stalls where shoppers can find unique gifts with a difference. On Sunday 7 December there will be a Parents and Children’s Day dedicated to family festivities.

Organised by the RCA Students’ Union, the aim of the Fête is to sell affordable and original art and design pieces by the College’s students and graduates to help support and encourage their practice.

This year’s offerings range from £2 to £200 and include crocheted Christmas cards; fabric vases; textured pottery; bright geometric prints; pole dancing inspired ceramics; edgy metallic accessories; bespoke jewellery and hand-printed scarves.

Opening times: 12pm-8pm every day For full Fête information visit:
