Monocle Country Fayre

As part of the celebrations we'll be launching some new product lines, including Kraft gift wrap, cards and handmade notebooks from Paris. Each purchase will also receive a limited edition mini print by Swedish illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius. Exclusive Stall holders and live music acts include: Marimekko , Drakes, Trunk Clothiers, The Embassy of Sweden, Georgia Mancio, Kitsuné, All Press and the sweet sound of Mr Ian Shaw.

In the courtyard outside Monocle's Marylebone HQ, the global affairs magazine hosts its annual Country Fayre, a free weekend of entertainment which celebrates the most English of traditions from a global perspective. Much like the magazine - which reports on matters as diverse as the doggy pampering industry in Japan, and Brazil's command of the UN peace-keeping mission in Haiti - the Monocle Country Fayre is both entertaining and informative. Market stalls hosted by local shopkeepers, cooking demonstrations, face painting for the kids, live music and DJs attract around 2,000 people to Midori House during the course of the weekend.
