Expect a lot of spooky shenanigans as we kickstart our Halloween Extravanagza this Thursday, at Cheshire Street! We're so excited about the chance to dress up and be decadent, we have invited along some frighteningly good friends to help us celebrate!
First up, is the awesome Charlie le Mindu, who has created some showstopping artworks for our outdoor East End Lights lightboxes. Weaving together elements of sculpture, architecture and theatre, his work will make you stop dead in your tracks!

Also, on hand with some spooky haircutting surprises will be the brilliant Parlour Macabre! Beware! A swoosh of her magical scissors can transform the scariest of haircuts to something beautiful! She's sharpening those scissors for Thursday night, so you are guaranteed to leave looking your ghoulsih best! (or worst!)

And the party doesn't stop there! Our celebrations continue on Friday 23rd October at our store on Great Marlborough Street, in Soho, with live bands and fabulous shopping until late!
Our very own Ida Jacobsson, Assistant Manager at the Soho store, will be providing a lush backdrop of sunshine pop melodies with her gorgeous band, We Walk on Ice. The indie duo are the perfect blend of dark and light, just the right side of spooky for your Halloween shopping! Also playing are twisted folk set-up The Lost Cavalry.
