Mother’s Day at Selfridges

If you’re stuck for an idea on what to get your mum for Mother’s Day on Sunday, pop in to Selfridges, where there’s help at hand.

Today, between 1:30pm-2:30pm cupcake queen Fiona Cairns is signing copies of her new baking book and will be around to personalise cupcakes for you.

On with the personal touch, if you head into store on Saturday or Sunday, you can have a polaroid picture taken which you can then turn into a Mother’s Day card.

All events are free.

Affordable Art Fair

When most people think of art, we think it’s totally unaffordable and we’d never be able to buy a piece to hang in our humble abode.

No longer!

The fair is taking place in Battersea Park until Sunday, 14th March.

Tickets cost £15/£13 concessions. Tickets are available on the door.

Doors are 11am-6pm.

Nearest Station: Battersea Park Rail, or Queenstown Road Station
