Hunt for festive gifts

28 November 2013 - 22 December 2013


Wed–Fri 5pm–8.30pm;
Sat & Sun 12pm–8.30pm

Exhibitors vary day to day

The Design Market presents a handpicked selection of London's finest independent makers and artisans. Teeming with innovative and original gifts from decorations and accessories to prints and homeware, there's plenty to tempt the discerning gift hunter.

Curated by the Barbican and Louise Kamara (renowned creator of design events including Duckie’s Christmas market), no two days will be the same with a daily changing selection of UK-based designers and makers showcasing their work.

As well as some beautifully wrapped edible gifts and treats, the market will be serving spiced sloe gin mulled wine and cider and traditional festive cakes to help fuel your search for the perfect gift.
