Discover the cats, the myths and the legends behind #FortnumsChristmas
Consider our halls decked: unveiled on 1st November, our wonderful new Piccadilly windows present a behind-the-scenes look at our Christmas production line. While Father Christmas relies on an enthusiastic workforce of elves, we have traditionally employed a herd of cats – clad in Fortnum’s Red Coats, of course – to keep things ticking along over the festive period. You’d be amazed at how incentivised they are by a mince pie or two.
Replete with gold wheels, intricate pipes and whirring machinery, the windows honour the extraordinary detail that goes into making a Fortnum’s Christmas as special as it is, from crackers with a pitch-perfect bang to salmon that’s just the right shade of pink.
