This festive season, The Black Penny in Covent Garden is launching Night Shrine, an alternative Christmas market. Launching on 3rd December, the night market will see a host of independent designers and sellers taking over the two-storey building alongside DJs, an in-house clairvoyant, cocktails and food.
Night Shrine will showcase the works of ten businesses across fashion, accessories, home ware, art and crafts. The line-up includes a selection of artists and illustrators, handcrafted wooden goods, unique clothing from stylist Hope Von Joel, vintage pieces from Exclamation Vintage and much more. Night Shrine could be the perfect pre-Christmas shopping event for those of you on the lookout for something a little different.
If all that shopping leaves you peckish, Chef George Notley has created a menu of warming dishes including, Kale, Sweet Potato & White Bean Soup, Savoury Stuffed Mochi with Bitter Greens, and Tartiflette with Bacon, Cheese & Fresh Herbs. A selection of The Black Penny sweet treats will also be on offer, alongside a specially curated cocktail menu, beer and cider.
And best of all, attendance is free! All you have to do is register. This event will pave the way for further Night Shine markets to be hosted quarterly by The Black Penny so don’t worry if you can’t make it this time, keep your eyes peeled for the next one!
