ETHERIDGE & PERSIGHETTI PERSONAL SHOPPER

Fri 11 – Sat 19 Nov, 9am-5pm | Tours at various times

Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! is the culmination of a 3 year project by Katie Etheridge & Simon Persighetti exploring and celebrating the rich network of relationships between shoppers, traders and goods in Kirkgate Market.

In the sensory labyrinth of Leeds Kirkgate Market, Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! is the market in microcosm, a 21st Century Still Life of fruit, fish, textiles, jewellery, frying pans, friends and experiences. Offering a pick-and-mix selection of micro tours led by local shoppers, traders, market enthusiasts and mis-guides, Katie and Simon invite you to navigate the Market through a series of idiosyncratic Personal Shopper tours where poetic, playful and practical insights are intertwined with personal histories, individual passions, and lived experiences. 

Join Simon and Katie at the Personal Shopper: Cornucopia stall at Unit 28, Row J in the 1981 Hall of Kirkgate Market 11-12 and 14-19 November, (that's every day during the festival apart from Sunday). Join a tour, see the sights, say "hello" or buy a copy of a new publication -  Personal Shopper: A Market Mis-Guide.

 

Commissioned by Compass Festival.

Take your pick from the cornucopia of Mis-Guide tours: 

 

All tours start from the Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! shop: Stall No. 28, Row J, in the 1981 Hall.

Mis-Guide tours are FREE but have limited capacity so booking is essential. Book online here, at the Personal Shopper: Cornucopia! shop or by phone on 07751307931.

WorkersLunchTime by WorkersLunchTime

It's lunchtime but there is a certain Leeds office worker who uses his spare hour to go on adventures and explorations.
