As you know, our jewellery likes a cultural outing, so this weekend, we shall be consuming food, art and film.
Global Street Food
[163-175 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6HU 5pm – midnight http://www.urbanfoodfest.com/]
Don’t forget: To roll your sleeves up. You will have work to do.
Free to enter, this is the ultimate urban food fest. Set up by Jessica Tucker (high powered lawyer by day) she has brought together music and global street food to create a diverse and entertaining menu to challenge your taste buds. From Schwarma to Sashimi, there is something for everyone – except maybe the faint hearted. Vegans, Veggies and Carnivores will all find something to appeal – as will the sweet lovers. People rave about the deep-fried frogs legs from Geaux Cajun (although we didn’t find them). All this accompanied by some seriously good music from up-and-coming new bands. Hectic and so worth it.
Free Range Art
WHAT TO WEAR: Wear what you dare but take our Williamsburg silver bangle for company.
DON’T FORGET: Cash.
An annual exhibition by the top art graduates from all over the UK. There is a multitude of fabulous art, architecture, fashion, photography, interiors and much more. If you are keen to spot the next big thing this is the place to take a chance. Free to enter and guaranteed to appeal to the Art Lover in everyone. And the fact it’s in the Truman Brewery is rather a good excuse to skip across the street for a drink afterwards.
Bye Bye Sunday Night Blues
What to wear? That 80’s Thundercats T-shirt you bought at the fair, a coat and some of our Hvar Disco Earrings for a bit of sparkle that will still be seen amongst the blankets.
Don’t forget? To set your alarm on Monday morning.
We’re up for any excuse to do something on a Sunday night. And this is a great one. The Queen of Hoxton pub is home to the Rooftop Film Club. A comfy chair, the glorious outdoors (+ several blankets) and the best bit – headphones, so rustlers can rustle without impacting your movie. You won’t find the latest blockbuster on the screen but you will get to indulge in some 80s classics (Grease, Top Gun, Breakfast at Tiffanys are all on the list). Oh, and there is a bar and a very good restaurant so you can settle in for a long evening. What if it rains? You get wet.
