Christmas in July is coming!


I hope all’s well, as always – the builders are in full swing at home and strangely all my clothes have magically turned a shade of dusty grey! Not really, they haven’t got to the really messy bit yet.

Whilst the builders are with us – I’m taking a few days break from The Q and will return back in time for a 2 hour special preview of Andi Peters’ Food Fest which forms part of our famous Christmas in July Event on July 25th.

The series itself returns later in the year, and our buyers have been working hard to find new gourmet delights as well as mouthwatering luxury foods from our much-loved existing brands.

The honour of the Today’s Special Value of the day goes to the fabulous Churchill’s Biscuits with their brand new two-piece Confectionery Magical Fairground Tins and Biscuits, comprising two beautifully-designed embossed Fairground tins – the colourful Fairground theme works all year round as well as Christmas, adding a stunning splash of vibrant colour, as their tins are almost certainly re-used for knick-knacks, pencils, stationary etc. They are certainly far too beautiful to throw away!

The Big Wheel contains three of Churchill’s fabulous petticoat shortbread rounds and the Helter Skelter contains two packs of the mini-chocolate chip granola biscuits, a flavour made especially for QVC Customers.

You’ll also be able to take advantage of an Auto-Delivery option in which you’ll receive – in 60 days – the same tins except the Helter Skelter will have seasonal Oat and Cranberry biscuits in instead.

Churchill’s Confectionery is a family-run business based in Hertfordshire, started by regular guest Kim Winston’s father in 1988, and prides itself on the quality and artistry of it’s exquisite tins and packaging.

I love working with Andi and the show brings a mix of fun and gourmet excellence to Q Towers – I hope you can join us at 4pm on the 25th for 2 hours.

On the Churchill’s theme – if you have access to Facebook, I believe there are plans for Andi and I to indulge in a Dunking Competition on Facebook Live! I imagine you can catch us a few minutes after we come off air – I have my work cut out for me, as Andi is something of a dunking expert!

That’s all from me today, so until next time… stay dust-free and dunking..!
