On sale will be flowers, wreaths, cakes and biscuits, jewellery, books and decorations, leather notebooks, fair-trade jewellery and cashmere shawls, spicy nuts and handcrafted gin. If you go along on opening evening, Tuesday 17th November, you can relax with a glass of wine and the present buying decisions will all be a lot easier. It’s an important money raiser for our special local charity, 30% of all sales goes to RPT which works with over 1,000 local children and young people each week. It’s on 17th and 18th November at the 20th Century Theatre, Westbourne Grove. Day tickets are £5 and drinks party tickets, for evening of 17th, 6pm – 9pm, are £20. The drinks party tickets always sell out well so get in early by emailing [email protected] and more about the charity at rugbyportobello If you want to be selective with your literary heroes, Sebastian Faulks and Rachel Kelly will be signing their new books in the evening of Tuesday 17th, and Yotam Ottolenghi will be signing Nopi on Wednesday 18th at 1pm for about 45 minutes.
