Friday 21st September
Lush Big Fridays: Part Three Animal Rights!
This Friday we are welcoming reps from Charity Pot supported Erin Hounds, an amazing organisation that rehabilitates and rehomes abandoned or ill treated greyhounds. They will be bringing along a very special four legged friend. We also have gorgeous vegan cakes and hot dogs from Teatime Collective and crafts from Owl and Blanket! Our bargain of a vintage clothes sale will return, with items priced between £1.00 and £3.00 To top it all off, we’re having more live music from DBH, Mat Gray and TG Elias!
Entry fee is an optional donation from £1 of a Charity Pot of which all proceeds go to grassroots charities. All guests will be entered into a prize draw to win bottles of HQ perfume, so new and exclusive it is not yet available anywhere! All of your favourite Lush products can be purchased during the events, and there will be perfume consultations and Emotional Brilliance readings galore.
