Ideas for your weekend… many temptations!

Guess what? More rain this weekend! No surprises there then! Still, there’s so much going on in London this weekend, something is sure to lure you out!

London Coffee Festival

Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, Adult tickets from £9.50, Friday to Sunday

The London Coffee Festival returns this weekend to the Old Truman Brewery,  hosting Street Food & Artisan Markets, coffee tastings and demonstrations, the UK Barista Championships and live music. The festival is divided into themed zones – Hyde Park, Shoreditch, Soho, The Lab, The Showroom and The Growing Community.

The Cutty Sark

Nearest station is Cutty Sark DLR, adult tickets £12.00

The stunning tea clipper, resident in Maritime Greenwich has received a huge re-vamp and has just been re-openend to the the public by the Queen this week. Once again, you can venture aboard and beneath one of the world’s most famous ships, the last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time.

Taxidermy and Tea

Saturday, Bethnal Green Working Mens Club, £25 in advance

Bethnal Green Working Mens Club will this weekend play host to The Robin Collective and their Taxidermy and Tea event. For those who are curious about taxidermy, this is the perfect opportunity to learn everything you could ever have wished to, as a master of taxidermy shows you how it’s done. There are a bunch of traditional Spring offerings of chocolate eggs and cakes on offer too….. but also expect the usual Robin Collective twist with some more unconventional fare.

The Wonder Hill Market

The Miller, London Bridge, Free Entry, Saturday 11:30am to 5pm

I’m planning my second craft fair stall this weekend, which will be part of the Wonder Hill Market in Borough. Expect plenty of hand crafted goodies, vintage treasures and yummy Thai food to boot! Would be lovely to see you there!

Browns Pop-Up Sale

20th Century Theatre, Westbourne Grove, Today until 7pm

You’ll have to rush, but you can still make this epic sale after work! Browns is offering up to 80% off some amazing pieces by the likes of Acne, Chloé, Marc Jacobs, Lanvin and Alexander McQueen and lots more. Sounds too good to miss right?!

Cheese and Wine Festival
Southbank Centre Square, Until 6pm Sunday, Free Admission

The Cheese & Wine Festival takes place again this weekend at the Southbank Centre. A celebration of Britain’s best ethical and artisan produce, the organisers aim to bring delicious food and drink to everyone, with no snobbery or gobbledygook. With an amazing list of exhibitors, any wine or cheese lover would be silly to miss it.


Have you got exciting plans for the weekend? Hope you enjoy whatever you do!
