Pic & Mix Festival at Selfridges Manchester Trafford

We’re at it again at Selfridges Manchester Trafford, as everyone’s favourite family festival returns. From 28 August for five days, The Pic & Mix Festival will be in full swing with a hoard of fun-packed, giggle-strewn activities to get all who claim to be young at heart in the mood to celebrate. You’ll be wanting to snap pics and share them with all your friends at this photo opportunity-filled event, which includes a sushi school, cupcake decorating and science shows, to name a few.

Nature Kind sustainable cocktails at Selfridges Birmingham

Who doesn’t love a cocktail that tastes good and is friendly to the planet, too? Thanks to our exclusive summer menu at San Carlo Fumo in Selfridges Birmingham, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. The new Nature Kind cocktail menu uses ingredients that would otherwise go to waste, such as leftover citrus juices, rinds and fruit. Choose from five cocktails, including the delicious ‘Avocado Bellini’ and the fruity ‘Italicus and a Carnival’ (a heady mix of cachaça, lime juice and chargrilled pineapple juice). Cheers!
