Find Alternative Christmas Gifts at Festive Cultural Traffic in Shoreditch This Weekend!

December 17, 2016

The weekend of 17th and 18th December 2016 sees FESTIVE CULTURAL TRAFFIC land in London’s Shoreditch, which will provide a fun free shopping event for those looking for a more interesting alternative to predictable Christmas gifts and packed high street shopping! This unique event, taking place at Juju’s Bar & Stage off Brick Lane, allows independent dealers the opportunity to trade in books, zines, prints, posters, catalogues, vinyls and tapes, while providing visitors an opportunity to engage with the past, present and future of counter culture at an affordable level. By bringing together pioneering contemporary publishing with vintage counter culture and out- of-print material, Cultural Traffic paves an express connection between yesterday’s cultural artefacts and the latent collectables of tomorrow.

Founder of Cultural Traffic, the editor, designer and collector Toby Mott, spoke exclusively to Widewalls, to pick five of his highlights of this weekend’s event:
