Swap commercialism for community this Christmas and have a great day out while supporting local entrepreneurs and craftspeople!
somewhereto_ presents #FESTIV_ALT : London – a pop-up market with a twist.
On 27th & 28th of November somewhereto_ will be taking over somewhereto_Tottenham from 6pm – 9pm on the 27th and 12pm- 9pm on the 28th to bring you a Christmas market with a difference!
FESTIV_ALT : London will be packed with market stalls selling unique and original Christmas gifts made by local 16-25 year old creatives, who have been offered the space as a platform for their businesses. The free event will feature a programme of live performances from up-and-coming local singers, rappers and poets including Geovarn and Abondance. There will also be exclusive jewellery from Amarachi and bespoke fashion designs from LVCX on sale.
FESTIV_ALT is running in several venues across the UK, with sister events happening in Birmingham, Brighton, Nottingham and Wakefield. The pop-up has been created by somewhereto_, a UK wide programme which unlocks free space for 16-25 year old creatives and entrepreneurs. The initiative is funded by a £7 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
