True Reverie, a new lifestyle brand from Wolverhampton, that creates clothing and art which tells the story of its followers, will be hosting a Christmas Carnival, for one night only at Blossoms Liquor & Grind on Thursday 5 December. This event will be a unique retail experience in the run up to the festive season which will see live music and DJ sets featuring the best regional talent, alongside a True Reverie pop up shop and stalls from local independent artists selling art, fashion, vinyl and photography. Tickets to the event will cost £5 and all profits from ticket sales will go directly to the Wolverhampton homelessness charity The Good Shepherd.
The event will kick off at 7.30pm with DJ sets from Ian Davies, owner of Wolverhampton independent record shop Stay Loose Records, and Stewart Kendrick, All Hands on Decks. There will be live acoustic sets from local singer-songwriters Alex Ohm, Bryony Williams and Ryan Evans. Accompanying this will be pop-up shops featuring prints, scarves and accessories from midlands based artist and designer Maisie Baker, photography from Black Country Type, illustration and textiles from designer maker Ruth Radcliffe, and vinyl from Stay Loose Records. The True Reverie pop up shop will be open and selling their t-shirt and pin badge collections, featuring the Good as Gold design which was sported by Wolves FC players earlier this year.
