“Fortnum & Mason has a real respect for the transformative power of the arts, and is a longstanding supporter of our industry. For so many people, visiting the store in Piccadilly is a much-loved Christmas tradition – just like the Nutcracker – and I think we’re all a bit more grateful to be able to experience them once again this year. New Adventures is so proud to partner with Fortnum’s, not least as we’re both fond of something sweet and delicious.”
