On November 5th to November 8th, the Great Britain Campaign, a celebration of all things posh and British will schedule to take place on the Upper East Side at Madison Avenue. Organized by the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District, the four-day event will be held at 20 luxury boutiques and galleries.

Madison Avenue is a densely populated shopping center for many high-end retailers, and participants of the event will celebrate the campaign with British-themed refreshments and goodies in their stores. Alexander McQueen will sample truffles from Prestat, and Barbour and Jimmy Choo at 716 Madison Avenue will serve British tea and cakes.

The event will benefit the Historic Royal Palaces, an independent charity that aims to preserve the Tower of London, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, and three other royal palaces throughout Great Britain. The independent charity sustains its future with the support of donors, volunteers, and their sponsors. In exchange of their members' generosity, they provide a service that values Britain's architectural past. The organization has centered their goals in keeping the nation's old palaces up to the best standard.

This will be the first year of the Great Britain Campaign on Madison, and if the celebration catches on this year then spectators can be delighted to know that the campaign will return next year as an annual event.
