There’s a four day Amazon Black Friday event coming up later this month and it’s not just online. Love it or hate it, Black Friday is now a firm part of our pre-Christmas build up and each year it gets bigger and better in my opinion, with Amazon really leading the way on how to do a decent sale. None of this “up to 50% off” and you find it is only on one thing that they haven’t been able to shift all year nonsense. The Amazon Black Friday sale is the one we all wait for each year
Between November 28th and December 1st a four day Amazon Black Friday Event is being held in Addington Street, London. It will be showcasing events and running a series of hands on workshops for everything from making Christmas decorations on Thursday to making your own gin (hello) on Sunday. With a HIIT class with fitness influencer and celebrity trainer Bradley Simmonds and biscuit decorating with GBBO’s Kim-Joy in between. There is even an exclusive Tinie Tempah gig on the Friday night, for Prime members only (how to get a ticket will be released nearer the time).
Rooms are set up to demonstrate the latest gaming and tech, including all-new Amazon Devices, Logitech, Xbox, Microsoft Surface and Hewlett Packard. Plus there’s a hidden bookshelf leading to an Alexa-powered room full of festive surprises.
You don’t need a ticket to attend, it is open to the public each day from 9am to 7pm on 28th November and 9am to 5pm on 29th and 30th November, and 1st December . All you need to do is turn up (though obviously access to workshops will be on a first come first served basis so don’t be disappointed if they are full, I suspect some will be very much in demand) at 7 Addington Street (it is right by Waterloo train station in London).
This is the full schedule of what will be on display and what you can expect: Black Friday Schedule do have a read because there is SO much going on. Saturday in particular looks amazing as it is family entertainment day with face painting and a children’s entertainer
You can even shop from there using the app and Amazon’s SmileCodes
Do let me know if you are popping down as i am hoping to do too, I bet you can’t work out the workshop where I shall be elbowing my way to the front.
Gin, discounts AND Christmas shopping? I can’t think of a better way to spend a day.
