Hello and welcome,

to the Graft-online - our first digital edition.

Well, what a year we have all had? We’re thrilled to now have our retail and restaurants open and I am so proud of everything we have collectively achieved over the last 12 months.

Being home to the vaccine centre is a definite highlight for me. Seeing the impressive role played by so many fabulous NHS staff and volunteers was a wonderful thing to be a small part of.

The centre is looking fantastic too. The refurbishment work is complete and we’re looking forward to welcoming new retailers and restaurants to join us.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the Graft-online and we look forward to welcoming you to The Grafton soon.

The Wright Fashion

We love the Wright Twins’ style and invited them to The Grafton to pick their favourite pieces of the season and model them, as only they can.

For the little ones

They may be small but they are certainly mighty… and they grow so quickly! Whether they like rainbow brights or nice and neutral we have got it covered. Here is our edit of kidswear that you can find at stores located in the centre.

Rainbow Jewels with TH Baker

Move over ‘big three’ (emeralds, rubies and diamonds) it’s time to let the whole jewellery box shine.

Why I love make-up by Charlene Collins.

Whether in or out of drag, make-up is a powerful tool of self-expression and a way of affirming my identity in a sea of conformity. Since starting drag, I have been able to experiment with different styles and approaches, allowing me to find and amplify my own creative voice on stage (and in the last year, through digital performances, too).
