Selfridges has cooked up some pretty big plans for its comeback post-lockdown. To tie in with the reopening of its Oxford Street store, it will also be extending outdoors with its first-ever open-air Christmas market in Edward Mews, round the back of the store, featuring food trucks, fairground rides, stalls selling wreaths, Christmas trees, decorations and gifts, and something called the ‘tunnel of light’. The market will be catered by a host of vendors including the recently launched Tramshed Project, Fundi Pizza and those guys with the giant wheel of cheese.
