Explore a Market like No Other with St James London

London is full of surprises on every corner. And what makes every twist and turn more exciting, is the copious number of exciting things happening for all keen city dwellers (and you lovely tourists) who seek it.

We previously talked about St James from a fashion perspective and all the cool trend tailoring brands which sit within it. But this time around is something less on the yarn side and more on the culinary/musical side.

Maketh-the-Man and St James London delightfully invite you to a one of a kind celebration kicking off July 5th until July 9th to mark the official opening of St James’s Market. You outgoing folk can take the chance to either unwind after work or a long day of sightseeing, to live performances from Classic FM musicians in the sun, whilst sipping champagne and sampling the market’s wide array of exquisite world cuisine.

The five-day experience will come with daily musical performances, curated by Classical Pop Ups for Classic FM. And because we can’t let you head down to St James Market and not revel in the vast fashion brands, there will be exclusive activities and promotions from Jigsaw Emporium, Paul & Shark and Aspinal of London, as well as cycling brand, Assos. And also don’t forget a bar pop-up will be at hand to satisfy your palate throughout the week from our one of a kind restaurants and cafes.

The list of activities happening each day are below. To be a part of the fun filled delights, head to the St James Website to sign up.
