What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Reader Invite – The Beauchamp Bazaar

Laura Bott invites readers to the Ormiston Families Beauchamp Bazaar in Knightsbridge on Tuesday 1st November

 

Now in its fifth year, the annual Ormiston Families Bazaar returns, this time to a new residence at St. Columba’s Church. Following the success of last year’s event at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, the committee, led by Lady Tollemache, renowned garden designer and president of Ormiston Families, hopes to raise more than £20,000 for the charity. The proceeds from the event will go towards providing services that support and nurture more than 130,000 children and young people in the East of England and remove them from trauma, despair, abuse and poverty.

 

Trevor Pickett, owner of his eponymous leather goods brand, is vice president of the Ormiston Families committee and has sat on the fundraising board, on and off, for the last fifteen years. Mr Pickett created the ‘Ormiston Bazaar’ event five years ago and having worked across a number of programmes, and witnessing first-hand how the charity provides young children with the care and support for their future development, he is extremely keen to continue his patronage of Ormiston Families.

 

The Beauchamp Bazaar at Saint Columba’s Church of Scotland, Pont Street, London, SW1X 0BD is from 4pm to 9pm on Tuesday 1st November 2016. To book tickets click here or pay on the door. Admission is £20 per person.

 

Pickett commented:

 

“The Bazaar has evolved and grown over the last five years, with the amazing support of Burlington Arcade and Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, who have both played a major part in establishing this successful event. Having raised £13,000 last year, we hope that with the new location, we will continue the momentum and help to raise further valuable funds for Ormiston Families”.

 

For one night only, the Beauchamp Bazaar offers shoppers the chance to browse a range of carefully selected boutique stalls. The collection of proprietors will include purveyors of the finest homeware, clothing, design, food and wine, from London, Suffolk and beyond.

 

Among this years’ vendors will be the fantastical hat designer Jonny Beardsall, the quality British clothing brand Sir Plus, ladies luxury tailored clothing brand Really Wild, vibrant and colourful sofa cushions from Susi Bellamy and luxury fine jewellery by designer Tessa Packard.

 

Of the event, Xa Tollemache added:

“Trevor Pickett is working his magic for Ormiston Families’ fifth Christmas bazaar. We achieved great things last year at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour and the team couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful. However, now with the new location at St. Columba’s Church, we are in a fantastic position to drive awareness of the charity in a more centralised area. And being just off Beauchamp Place, you can’t get much more exclusive than that”.

 

The Beauchamp Bazaar at Saint Columba’s Church of Scotland, Pont Street, London, SW1X 0BD is from 4pm to 9pm on Tuesday 1st November 2016. To book tickets click here or pay on the door. Admission is £20 per person.
