Download press release


Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions are back with their annual culturally inspired winter fair. We are pleased to be holding our fourth London Winter Fair on Saturday 7 December at the Embassy Tea Gallery and in Birmingham on Saturday 14 December at the Lighthouse Young People’s Centre.


Since 2010, Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions shopping events have attracted quality exhibitors showcasing the finest selection of merchandise. Many of the items on sale have been naturally/organically produced and handmade.


This unique shopping event brings together entrepreneurs selling culturally inspired gifts, which give shoppers the opportunity to pick up inspiring gifts, which ooze creativity.


Charity: For the second year running we have chosen the Sickle Cell Society as our official charity and we will donate a percentage of proceeds taken on the door from both events.


Kalpna Patel, Sickle Cell Society: “The Sickle Cell Society is delighted to receive support from Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions through their winter fair. This fantastic event will help raise awareness about sickle cell disease amongst the local community”.


The annual Afridiziak Gifts and Occasions winter fairs are a chance to treat yourself and pick up something special for your loved ones too. The family day includes:

  • Retailers selling culturally inspired gifts for men, women, and children including hair/beauty products, books, toys, educational gifts, paintings, jewellery, accessories, bags, clothing, gifts for the home, cultural cuisine and greeting cards too…
  • Goodie bag and cupcake for the first 50 shoppers
  • DJ’s Blaze It Up Entertainment spinning an eclectic mix of tunes
  • [Birmingham] For children - mini arts and crafts workshops by Anaisarts
