In this age of handheld video games, portable DVD players, and ever-present iPhones, too many people have forgotten the simple joys of old-fashioned fun. Revisit your childhood and keep children entertained at the Marylebone Summer Fayre this Sunday 15th June 2014.
Taking place at The Conran Shop on Marylebone high street – renowned for its thriving and desirable shopping area and charming village atmosphere – we have scheduled a fun-filled day of family-friendly games and activities that require everyone to turn off the television and tune in to each other.
We can’t think of a better way to enjoy London’s glorious summer weather, raise money and awareness for Kids Company and celebrate Father’s Day in style. Show him he’s still number one with one of The Conran Shop’s stylish gifts, perfect for the techie, the DIY-dad, and every father figure in between. Savvy shoppers who spend over £50 on the day will be given a free art pack for children which contains a handy tube of colouring pencils with pencil sharpener, a set of 10 colouring pens and a Henry Matisse colouring book to unleash your child’s inner artist.
Award-winning cake designer Peggy Porschen will be in-store running a children’s cupcake decorating table, where every child will be given a cupcake and provided with all the colourful frosting and sprinkles needed to transform the sweet treat into a mouth-watering masterpiece.
Plus, mum and dad needn’t miss out – Peggy Porschen will also be signing copies of her new book ‘Cakes in Bloom: Exquisite Sugarcraft Flowers for All Occasions’ between 12-1pm. This beautiful book reveals the secrets to making more than 30 gorgeous life-like sugar flowers with easy step-by-step instructions. This unique opportunity to meet the queen of cakes and draw on her skill, style and experience is bound to impress her legion of fans and win over some new baking recruits.
As another extra special treat honouring fathers, grandfathers and father figures is independent perfumer Tom Daxon will be in-store promoting his luxurious fragrances and shower gels between 12-2pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the man behind one of the most exciting fragrance brands and treat yourself or a loved one to an evocative new scent.
Join us this Sunday 15th June 2014 from 11am-6pm at The Conran Shop Marylebone (55 Marylebone High Street, London, W1U 5HS).
