The Gloucester Road Central Christmas Late Opening Party is on Thursday 7th December (5.30 til 8pm). This is when the festive season really kicks off. Its a great chance to meet up with friends, neighbours and family and browse the lovely things our shops have got in store for Christmas. All our art shops and galleries show work by local artists so this is a great way to support them and buy really unusual one-of-a-kind gifts. Paper Plane will have their usual paper snowflake making and the winner of the Gloucester Road Alphabet competition will be announced outside Room 212 at 6.30pm.
Jojo’s Beauty will be giving hand and arm massages and a giveaway Neal’s Yard skincare goodie pouch, while keeping the kids amused with balloon (bio degradable) face decorating. Next door, Nola Interiors will have prosecco and mince pies to enjoy whilst browsing their gorgeous gifts and decorations. Osna Therapy, will be celebrating their move into a brand new premises, 222 Gloucester Road, with their delicious mulled wine – including lots of brandy! Sidney and Eden will also be serving mulled wine, cider and spiced apple and is a great place to sit and have a catch up.

The Food Shop will be setting up a stall outside Gloucester Road Books, who are planning some ‘meet the author’ sessions.
