Rupert Turnbull, Wired Publisher, said: “We’re delighted that Samsung are sponsoring Wired’s first UK pop-up store and joining us to showcase the latest in design and innovation.

Opened in Twickenham this last week as part of the Richmond Literature Festival, the Literary Salon is up and running for the whole of November.
Located in an empty shop on Heath Road, the salon will play host to various workshops and events for people of all ages. Councillor Pamela Fleming, cabinet member for community, business and culture, said: “This year, the Literary Salon provides a wonderful resource for people to get involved with lots of activities and workshops.
“Situated as it is in an empty shop, it perfectly showcases how pop-up shops can give a meaningful contribution to our towns, with impact beyond their brief stay.”
