Kocktail co-founder, Andrew Hutchinson, said: “We wanted to do something truly unique for our first instore pop-ups with John Lewis. It’s a proud moment for us to open the first pop-up in our hometown store in Newcastle. 

“When we launched just three years ago, we couldn’t have imagined where it would take us and seeing the Kocktail shopping space brought to life is an incredible feeling for myself and the whole team. We hope shoppers can be inspired and enjoy the space as much as we’ve loved creating it.”
