Carnaby is such a great area in central London. The community vibe with the shops and restaurants always creates great additional value over and above a simple shopping destination. It always seems to be a little bit brighter, more buzzing and more personable than it's neighbours around Oxford and Regent Street.

In the last year or so it's put on some really great free talks and workshops and it's newest announcement looks set to add to these.

Carnaby has announced a brand new four-day festival for May 2018, the Carnaby Style Weekender, celebrating fashion, lifestyle, food & drink and beauty to kick start the new season.

Over 50 shops and restaurants are offering discounts, freebies and masterclasses over the four days including Cowshed, Office, Skinny Dip, Urban Decay and 1 Carnaby x Sweaty Betty.

Jack Guinness hosts the official launch of the Weekend with a fashion panel on Thursday 10 May in the Carnaby Hub. Other free workshops across the weekend include: Breddos Tacos’ cocktail masterclass, Jack Wills’ t-shirt screen printing session and a collage workshop from We Built This City.

Carnaby Style Weekend takes place from Thursday 10 – Sunday 13 May 2018
