Our annual Christmas Market is back for 2021 and is set to be our biggest festive offering ever!

This year we are bringing Christmas Market back to town by giving some of London Met’s most creative designer-makers the opportunity to sell in person on Sunday, 5 December at the Old Truman Brewery’s famous Sunday UpMarket. An in person event.. Oh, it’s a Christmas miracle!

Following on from the success of our 2020 Christmas Market, we’ll also be featuring an even bigger cohort of student and graduate sellers online via our online Christmas Market shop!

This year, over 80 London Met students and graduates from across the whole university applied to take part in our Christmas Markets. To help them get the most out of the Christmas Market we’ll be inviting students and graduates along to a bootcamp day, where they will receive training on pricing their products, social media promotion, setting up online stores, product displays and speaking to customers.

Adam Watts, a Furniture and Product Design BA graduate and previous Christmas Market seller told us, “Doing the Christmas Market was a great real world experience for me. I received invaluable feedback to develop my products further”.

So, if you’re looking for something different this Christmas, come along and join us at Sunday Upmarket to see, touch and buy an amazing range of products from our talented London Met designer-makers. Or visit our online Christmas Market where you’ll be able to buy handcrafted jewellery, fashion accessories, homeware items and much much more!
