Looking to jump-start your holiday shopping? Enter Rumble in the Jumble!
We all love a good rummage sale, but rarely do we leave with Alexa Chung’s pre-owned clothes. At best we can score a pair of last season’s Marc Jacobs flats. We’re not complaining, but it would be a completely different story leaving with an outfit worn by one of our style gurus.
Luckily, we’ll have that chance at Rumble In The Jumble! After raising £27,000 at last year’s event – and with a very special appearance from Sir Elton John’s sparkly suit – BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney and The Music Circle’s mammoth garage sale is set to return bigger and better than ever. With all proceeds going to help empower women around the world, the fourth edition of London’s number one celebrity and music-themed jumble sale will have unique one-off items up for grabs include a suave suit from man of the moment, Mark Ronson, one of Annie Lennox’s delectable handbags, a signed pair of black velvet Aquascutum dancing slippers from Friendly Fires and a dapper David Gandy suit.
The event will be stocked with second-hand garb donated by celebs like Alexa Chung, Annie Lennox, Caroline Flack, Nicole Scherzinger, Claudia Winkleman, Daisy Lowe, David Gandy, Ella Eyre, Fearne Cotton, Florence Welch, Jameela Jamil, and Sali Hughes… shall we go on? – Whilst brands such as Whistles, Smashbox, and ASOS are amongst the first to have confirmed donations. Many more names will be revealed at the event so #watchthisspace.
The Music Circle is part of The Circle of Women, an association of women who share a passionate interest in the lives, needs and rights of women in all global communities. Circle members work together to collectively use their knowledge, skills, experience and resources to help raise money and awareness for important female related causes that Oxfam supports.
“The Circle is a community like no other…. We are a connective hub, bringing women together from various influential professional and creative sectors, to inspire each other – share ideas and bring about new ways of engagement in order to support and transform the lives of women and girls living in poverty in developing countries,” says Annie Lennox.
Proceeds of this year’s sale will go towards Oxfam’s campaign to establish greater gender equality in Myanmar, Burma. Needless to say here at YCB we love it when fashion is used to make good (and not just to make you look good).
As usual there’ll be music, a huge books stall, DJs, hair and makeup stalls, a photobooth, cake, tea, and food and drinks on Oval Space‘s sunny terrace to round off the event.
A fantastic haul of music and merch swag will be waiting for you on May 9th, and don’t forget to bring a bag of quality jumble as part of the deal to get in!
