RCA Christmas Fête 2017

7 December 2017 to 10 December 2017 | Thursday: 6.30 –8pm, Friday – Sunday: 12–8pm daily


In keeping with tradition, this December artists and designers from the Royal College of Art are once again lending their talents to crafting wares for a bustling Christmas market. The RCA annual Christmas Fête will run from 7–10 December, hosted by the Students’ Union at the RCA’s Kensington campus.

Established five years ago, the RCA Christmas Fête is a celebratory occasion that brings together RCA students and the wider community of art and design lovers, as well as local and international visitors. Shoppers will have the unique chance to purchase beautiful, well-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts for friends and family, with contemporary prints, jewellery, decorations, gifts and more on offer. RCA students are at the core of this event, as it presents them with a fantastic opportunity to share ideas about their work with a wider audience. Earnings from the fête go directly to supporting students at the College, as they receive 100% of the profit from their sales.

So come and celebrate Christmas with us, meet the practitioners driving forward the aesthetics of today, and collect high-quality, handmade treats for the holiday season in a friendly Yuletide atmosphere in the heart of South Kensington.
