Cashmere, artisan food, stocking fillers, children’s toys and homeware will be for sale, along with a wreath or two and you after all the shopping you can have a sit down and a homemade cake. On Tuesday evening Lutyens & Rubinstein will also be there with children’s author Emma Chichester Clark and Allie Esiri will be signing her book A Poem for Every Night of the Year.
