Shoreditch’s famous Urban Food Festival is coming to London Bridge this February.

Festival of Textiles @ Fashion & Textile Museum | Throughout February 

Discover textile history, tradition, design and making at our spring series of displays, talks and workshops. Organised to coincide with the exhibition JOSEF FRANK Patterns–Furniture–Painting, the Festival aims to illuminate contemporary practice and open minds to the ways in which textiles enrich lives.

Enjoy workshops in print, silk painting, tapestry, draping, pattern cutting, crochet, drawing, dyeing and block printing. Speakers on the Thursday Lates programme include textile designers Neisha Crosland, Sarah Campbell and Roger Oates discussing their textile practices alongside historical talks on Dutch Wax textiles, William Morris, Jacqueline Groag, Tartan and Tweed.

One of the highlights of the Exhibition and Displays programme is an opportunity to view the Zandra Rhodes Archive Collection.

 

Morning Gloryville @ The View from The Shard | 6.30AM, 21st February

Pioneers of ‘conscious clubbing’, Morning Gloryville will be dancing in the sky at The View from The Shard on Tuesday 21st February.

Morning Gloryville’s passion is set up the morning in a truly magical style to ensure guest leave inspired, nourished and full of beans. This sober dance experience on the top Floor of the View From The Shard  (800ft above the streets!) features sky-dancing, yoga, massage, superfood smoothies, hot drinks, and sunrise gazing to the backdrop of London’s top DJ’s. Tickets are £40 and can be purchased here.

 

The Hunting Lodge @ Unicorn Theatre | Until March 5th

There was once a cleaner who married a prince. They lived happily ever after. But that’s not where the story ends…

The prince got ditched five years ago. His mum thinks he needs to get back out there and meet someone, so she’s throwing a party – which is good news for Daisy. Daisy has a plan; everything is lining up perfectly and she’s going to bag her prince. But Charlotte arrives, somewhat unexpectedly, and Daisy’s not happy about it.

This modern feisty love story written by Ignace Cornelissen is a playful side-swipe at society’s obsessions with celebrity and unrealistic romantic ideals.

 

A Souper Sale Day @ Borough Market | February 7th

Made from surplus vegetables, homemade soups will be sold by local secondary school pupils at Borough Market to raise valuable funds for FareShare, an organisation which diverts good food destined for the bin to good causes.

The students have already been put through their paces by celebrated chef and author of Magic Soup, Nicole Pisani, who taught the budding sous-chefs how to make four soup recipes at a special workshop in the Market.
