Festival of ImaginationInspired by Harry Gordon Selfridge's famous mantra "Imagination is the mother of originality, we encourage imagination in every way possible", the Selfridges Festival of Imagination will see the store host a series of stimulating events and talks. Among the line-up is poet Carol Ann Duffy, designer David McCandless and filmmaker Simon Chinn, known for his Academy Award-winning documentaries 'Searching for Sugarman' and 'Man on Wire'. Plus, the world-store will fill its shelves with pioneering products that lead the way in design, fashion and technology.

 

About Selfridges

Don't be fooled into thinking that this huge department store is simply a Mecca for commercialism and shopaholics. Selfridges has a truly fascinating history that supports its excellent reputation for providing a huge range of high quality goods. Emphasising the ethos that "shopping should be fun", the stores original founder, US entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, defined the shop's hands-on, theatrical image that has endured since its opening in 1909.
