Summer may nearly be behind us but, fear not, September has pulled through with some amazing events all over the city to keep your summer spirit alive!
We have hand picked what we think are three of the most exciting events going on over the next month. Make sure to visit the The Literary Hour for a bite to eat, The Big London Bake for some cake compeition and then onto London Mezcal Week for some traditonal Mexican Culture and make sure you pop into the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee-Inspired Pop-Up for a whiskey cocktail enjoyed the way it should be…
The Literary Hour
‘A Banquet in Toad Hall’, The multi-sensory extravaganza inspired by the picnics, banquets, and delights of Kenneth Grahame’s beloved novel which has captivated readers for more than a century, The Wind in the Willows will be brought to life in all its edible glory in a big, bold and badgeriest dinner. Not only are you welcomed by a cocktail and the five-course meal, it’s also BYOB so you can really get stuck in.
The Big London Bake
Have you been glued to the TV since The Great British Bake Off has been back on our screens? Do you fancy yourself as the next star baker? The Big London Bake provides you with the famous marquee, your very own station, all the ingredients and best of all there is no experience required. Take a friend, take your mum or even take a date. You have 90 minutes to battle it out with other contestants and then a winner is announced!
London Mezcal Week
All over London (main festival in Hackney)
The festival takes place over the 16th with London’s best Mexican food from Bad Sports and Temper, a pop-up Mezcal bar serving delicious custom designed cocktails, art workshops, DJs and more. There are also events all over the city during the week, from mezcal and tequila food pairings, panel debates to three-course Mexican inspired dinners, London Mezcal Week has got an event for lovers of all things Mexican. Tickets start as low as £5, which is cheaper than having a glass of wine out, and you will come away educated and would have tried something a little different.
London Mezcal Week is a platform for all kinds of people to explore the culture of traditional Mezcal production, as well as taking a closer look at Mexican art, film, and food.
Jack Daniel’s Tennessee-Inspired Pop-Up
