One of our favourite days of the year, the Marks & Spencer Christmas Event is just around the corner. A celebration of holiday food, fashion, gifts and decorations, the Marks & Spencer festive showcase is one event you do not want to miss.

Marks and Spencer Christmas Event GinghamandsparkleJoin us on Wednesday 5 December at Marks & Spencer Dubai Festival City for a morning of festivities, kicking off at 9am with two fashion workshops. First up, fashion lover Irene Feeney of @ginghamandsparkle (pictured) will reveal must-have M&S festive attire for the whole family, including cute sweaters and the latest daywear for men, women and children. Then stylist Samantha Francis Baker of @styleisnecessity will show you how to look your best this holiday season with glam evening wear and stunning sleepwear.

From 11am, you’ll learn how to create the ultimate festive spread with three food masterclasses. Lyndsay Bettles of I Eat My Peas will present the perfect Christmas Day breakfast, along with tips and tricks on using Marks & Spencer’s new meat offerings for your Christmas lunch and dinner menus. Then, Carly Neave of Lean Living Girl will share inspiration for healthy Christmas dishes, including fresh ingredients and new vegan and gluten-free options. And Hazel Macrae from Marks & Spencer London will offer up five iconic festive foods handpicked from the M&S shelves.

Following the masterclasses, you’ll have the chance to wander around the store, taking part in live competitions with Heart FM, meeting Santa at his grotto or saying hello to Colin the Caterpillar at the interactive photobooth.
