Calling all London Perfect Readers!
As you’re all aware London is internationally renowned for arts and antiques of the highest calibre. It’s a bit of a mecca for galleries, auction houses and discerning buyers. And as for the superlative quality and cutting edge of its interior design and décor, well, almost nowhere can compare. Even if we do say so ourselves.
Now, do you fancy having a taste of that for yourself? You do? Good. Because 28 – 31 August 2013 there is a fest of British artistic heritage at the Antiques and Fine Art Fair at the Mall Galleries. And we’ve a couple of tickets to give away. Huzzah!
The Fair will be located at the Mall Galleries at the Admiralty Arch end of The Mall, which is a stroll away from some rather impressive bits of London architecture: Buckingham Palace (for the Royal watchers amongst our readers), Trafalgar Square (for fans of Admiral Horatio Nelson or giant blue roosters) and the Palace of Westminster (for those who go weak in the knees for a bit of the Gothic revivalism courtesy Charles Barry and A.W.N. Pugin).
So why not combine this delightful amble through London’s historic landmarks with a cornucopia of the finest paintings—from the 17th century to today—jewellery, small furniture, sculpture, silver, glass … gosh. The list goes on.
If you fancy those tickets, pop a comment at the bottom of this post. You’ve got until Midnight EST on Friday August 9, 2013 to write something. Something nice. Ideally about antiques, art or London. Then we at London Perfect will deploy the most sophisticated system EVER to pick a winner at random. It will involve lots of bits of paper with your comments on it, a hat and then a totally neutral picker of the winner.
We’ll announce the winner on Monday August 12.
Sounds like a good bit of fun to me – British art, antiques and the thrill of a small ticket giveaway. Woo hoo! So get typing. I await your comments with bated breath.
NOTE: The ticket giveaway is now over and the winner has been announced here. A big thank you to all those who entered the giveaway and told us their top tips for great things to do in London!
