Anglophiles, fashionistas and music lovers take note: there's a two day "choose your own adventure" style popup event called The Big British Invite coming to SoHo and you'll want to attend. Produced by our very own ExtraExtra Creative in collaboration with British Airways and Visit Britain, the event will introduce you to the current movers, shakers and trends of England, Scotland and Wales. In other words, all the fabulousness of British fashion, music and food without the pesky exchange rate. Among the fun things to do, you can: get an express manicure from nail art expert WAH Nails inspired by your favorite punk icons; learn how to best style your scarf from print aficionados Liberty London; gulp down Beefeater drinks made by London bartending collective Fluid Movement; dance your ass off in a silent disco DJ'd by some of the best British talents of the moment (including Chelsea Leyland); and gently mosh (we need to return the venue in one piece, after all) at a recreation of legendary Scottish concert venue King Tut's Wah Wah Hut's selection of rock and punk from the UK. With all of these Anglo-goodies ready and waiting for us, we'll definitely be popping over to see what all the fuss is about. Don't be a wanker, check it out!
The Big British Invite will take place from 12pm-6pm from Saturday, March 23rd through Sunday, March 24th at 78 Mercer Street.
