To coincide with Bloomberg New Contemporaries, The Poundshop will be taking over the ICA Theatre to present a winter wonderland of affordable seasonal products, ranging £1 to £15.

In their biggest collaboration to date, The Poundshop will showcase a selection of unique and seasonal products, including Christmas cards, wrapping, stocking fillers and presents. With over 50 designers including Lisa Jones, Durrell Bishop, Hato Press x Jean Julien and Nikki McWilliams all set within a specially designed winter forest.

Founded in 2010 by Sara Melin and George Wu, The Poundshop aims to bring design to a wider audience by offering a platform for young and emerging designers. Over the years The Poundshop has appeared in Selfridges, Somerset House, Loft Tokyo and soon to be in Au Pont Rouge St Petersburg.

Special Poundshop drinks will be served during the opening, including Mulled Wine for £2, Hot Toddies for £3 and ‘Poundshop Martinis’ for £5. As well as enjoying a festive tipple, you can dance the night away to a special Christmas disco set from Luxar.

ICA Members will receive a free sheet of 'Starry Night' wrapping paper with all Poundshop purchases, while stocks last.

Our Bookshop will be open until 10pm, with free mulled wine for anyone producing an ICA shop receipt.
