A Christmas conversation with Nikki Finch

As Co – Founder and Director of Otomys Contemporary in Tetbury, please share with us what is in store for you this Christmas?

I have lived a semi nomadic life style in countries from Africa to Beijing, Australia to Malaysia and now we find ourselves after two years well established in this beautiful country town of Tetbury. Christmas is a time when extended family gather from around the globe to be together and celebrate the festive season. 


What are your top must do activities when celebrating Christmas ? How do you make it special?

Visiting the Bath Christmas market is a family tradition, especially at night when the town is beautifully lit against the background of Georgian architecture.  School holidays allow everyone in the house a chance to enjoy some downtime, always with long dog walks in the countryside and indulging in our favourite winter fare.


Christmas in the Countryside:

The Pig Hotel for a festive dinner.

Catching Matisse Master of Line exhibition at the Holburne Museum.

Watching an arthouse film at the Little Theatre Cinema.

Exploring the Cotswold villages and country walks.


Christmas in London:

Late night shopping at Liberty London, Soho.

Visiting the Monocle Christmas Market, Marylebone.

Ice-Skating with the kids at Somerset House, Central London.

Festive drinks at The Ham Yard Hotel, Soho.
