This Christmas, luxury shopping destination, Bicester Village has partnered with bestselling lyrical poet Arch Hades, critically acclaimed spoken word poet, George The Poet, and the Art Shop by Collagerie to create a number of art and cultural experiences for guests of the Village to discover and enjoy throughout the festive shopping period. If you are ready to shop then why not do it hand in hand with entertainment, bargains, and the best British Countryside?
On the 8th November, both Arch Hades and George The Poet will attend a Christmas cocktail event in the ‘invitation only’ luxury Apartment at Bicester Village, where both will perform an intimate reading of their existing poetry works to guests. A limited number of tickets for this will be available to the public and can be purchased via the Bicester Village website here, with 100% of ticket sales being donated to Bicester Village’s DO GOOD charity program.
In addition, if you’re looking for Christmas gift inspiration for a loved one, Arch and George have personally curated a Gift Edit of their most loved products from Bicester Village, which can be discovered here, and a number of copies of Arch Hades new book ‘21C Human’ will be gifted to Bicester Village guests throughout November.
Taking inspiration from the naturistic and rural open-air landscape of Oxfordshire, surrounding Bicester Village, George The Poet has created a piece of bespoke poetry exclusively for Bicester Village which can be discovered at various touchpoints throughout the village to surprise and delight guests as they shop, dine, and explore.
Co-founded by ex-Vogue directors Serena Hood and Lucinda Chambers, Collagerie’s Art Shop, will appear throughout the guest journey to, and within Bicester Village as a shoppable ‘pop up’ exhibition, with prints on display at the Marylebone train station Kiosk, Bicester Village train station, The Apartment, and more.
There are 22 artworks available, all created by a mix of local and International female artists, with six additional prints by Kavel Rafferty, which are exclusive to Bicester Village.
Guests will be able to order prints directly from the Collagerie website via a scannable QR code, with home delivery available. In the spirit of giving back, the exhibition will also be in support of DO GOOD, with a portion of print sales being donated to charities involved in the programme.
