As winter draws in, there's nothing more stylish than taking a turn on London's most glamorous ice rink, Skate at Somerset House. Show off your skating prowess and head inside to explore the Christmas Arcade, a luxury pop-up shopping mall in the beautifully renovated West Wing overlooking the rink. The Christmas Arcade celebrates the best of British design from exclusive British brands and designers.
You'll discover a whole room of Tatty Devine, complete with a giant Christmas Spirit Necklace hanging over the fireplace for the ultimate seasonal sparkle. Find the perfect gifts for friends and family - and add to your own Christmas wish list! Take a peek at classic pieces, try on our statement Eyelash Sunglasses and shop brand new jewellery created exclusively for the Christmas Arcade.
Our Ice Skates Necklace, £25, is made from gleaming mirrored silver perspex, perfect for adding festive shine to your winter knits. This piece is only available for a limited period from the Tatty Devine room at the Christmas Arcade.
Those of a ghoulish nature won't want to miss a visit to the room taken over by Hoxton Street Monster Supplies. Its reputation precedes it as London's and quite possibly the world’s, only purveyor of quality goods for monsters of every kind. Take your pick from monstrously exciting goods such as Impacted Earwax (that's fudge for the faint hearted!) and Zombie Fresh Mints.
You'll even find the full limited edition range of Tatty Devine jewellery commissioned by Hoxton Street Monster Supplies. Proceeds support free writing workshops for young people in East London through the Ministry of Stories.
Feeling merry? Join our team at Somerset House on Saturday 24th November for an Ice Skate Brooch workshop. Decorate your perspex skate with glittering Swarovski cut crystals, and learn to attach a brooch pin. After the workshop, adorn your favourite winter coat with your handiwork and sparkle through the Christmas season! Book your ticket now.
The Christmas Arcade at Somerset House runs from 16th November 2012 - 6th January 2013. Discover which British designers are at the Arcade and check opening hours here.
