Enjoy an evening of shopping in our gorgeous home lifestyle store!
Second only to Christmas Day itself, Bell’s Christmas Party is the dazzling highlight of the festive calendar! A spectacular event with pop-up shops, cooking demonstrations, cocktails, and more gorgeous gifts and accessories than ever before!
If you haven’t experienced our stunning new extension until now, then this is an event you can’t afford to miss! Under the gorgeous, industrial, saw-tooth roof, you’ll be cosy by the fire, enjoying the twinkling fairy lights adorning hundreds of carefully selected Christmas decorations and gifts.
Our wall of affordable luxury is packed with unique treats to delight your friends and family, while our table displays are overflowing with shiny baubles, softest faux furs, and sensational cocktail mixes (to mention just a few)!
We’ll be joined by the delightful Joe Buckley, owner of The Perfect Country Pub Company who run The Tollemache Arms in Harrington, Red Lion @ Yardley Hastings and The White Horse in Tilbrook. He will be demonstrating how to cook delectable festive treats in our Nicholas Bell kitchen where there will be tasters galore, and plenty of mulled wine and cocktails with which to wash them down!
To prove that BBQing is a year-round affair, we’ll be putting several of our favourites to work! The Big Green Egg is the perfect grill for this time of year as it thrives when left to its own devices so you can leave it burning low and slow while you put up the Christmas lights and come back to a mouth-watering meal. The fabulous Shereen from Boxfood will be bringing the Egg to life with fiery fusion mixes, combining the best of Caribbean, Asian, and European influences.
Our very own Andy will be putting the Outdoor Chef BBQ through its paces, creating scrumptious tasters using as many local ingredients and products from our deli as possible!
If you like a little more theatre when you cook, the Clementi pizza ovens are the perfect party pieces, allowing you to cater for your whole family in mere minutes. There’s nothing quite like standing impatiently around a Clementi watching your pizza toppings bubble!
As always, we will be joined by the many wonderful concessions we’ve been blessed with at Bell. Hulsta is filled with beautiful displays and The Rose Gallery, IOS Lighting, and Luxe Cookshop have all expanded their offer into our new extension where they’re sharing their gorgeous new collections. We’re also delighted to have been joined by Mooch who are already firm favourites in Northampton town centre among the county’s savvy gifters! Our most tech-savvy concession, IndigoZest, will be showing off their smart home technology, designed to enhance your home through connectivity and integration.
Adding to the gorgeous glow in our showroom, Phoebe from Moonshine Bottles will be lighting the place up with her quirky up-cycled bottles filled with twinkling lights, perfect for decorating your Christmas dining table.
On the subject of sparkle, we’re delighted to welcome back Laura Harries who will be filling the showroom with sparkling jewellery from Stella & Dot. If your festive-wear needs a bit more bling, she’s got you covered! Plus, Beth Lothian from Lion Sparkles will be showing off some gorgeous accessories we can’t wait to get our hands on. They offer the perfect gifts (or you can treat yourself… we know you’ve earned it!)
While you’re thinking about that perfect Christmas outfit, don’t forget your fabulous footwear. Steve from Dychurch Lifestyle will be parading an impressive selection of luxury shoes and boots to ensure you’re looking fantastic from top to toe. Plus, his gorgeous accessories mean we’re utterly spoiled for choice!
Here to satisfy our sweet tooth, the wonderful team from Sweet Bee is bringing the usual wide selection of delectable goodies. Their old-fashioned sweet shop in Kingsthorpe is run by young SEN adults and they offer some of the best treats in the county!
And while we’re treating ourselves, let’s not forget to give our skin some welcome respite from the frosty chill of Winter… that’s where Teina from Nuude Beauty comes in with candles and bath bombs to help you relax after a long day of Christmas shopping! The Nuude Beauty Clinic is based in the heart of Kingsthorpe and offers phenomenal pampering packages designed to help you unwind.
After finding the perfect Christmas gift, don’t forget to tie a big bow on it! Debbie Hannah from Flamingo Paperie has a huge selection of wrapping papers, cards, and all the finishing touches to make that pile under the tree really stand out!
It’s never too early to prepare for the big day itself which is why our new deli, The Cheese Kitchen @ Bell, is offering pre-orders on turkeys, cheese, and ham. That’s one thing to tick off the list!
