Popular jobs website Escape the City is holding an exclusive Escape the City Winter Market and you’re invited to attend!
You know that moment when you realise it’s Christmas in four days and you haven’t bought any gifts? Well, that’s not going to happen this year, because we’ve got you covered as early as November.
Join us at Escape HQ for our Escape the City Winter Market on Friday November 11 from 5:30pm- 9:00pm. You’ll find products from our incredible community members and friends, just in time for the festive season.
It’s a great opportunity to check out Escape the City, and meet some of our alumni and friends showcasing their businesses. The Escape Bar will be open, so come have a drink and explore!
Some of the traders joining us:

Hand-sewn gifts and treats. Pear & Grey is a sibling duo with a shared passion for eye-catching fabrics. They source materials from all over the world, looking for that perfect print. Showcasing unique homewares, pet accessories and essentials for new parents, all hand-made here in London.
