GO: UNDERGROUND. DITCHLING MUSEUM OF ART

Hometown glory! As lovers of design we are so excited to celebrate ‘Underground: 100 Years of Edward Johnston’s lettering for London’, and it’s right on our doorstep…

‘Underground’ explores the friendship between letter cutter and relief carver Eric Gill and his teacher Edward Johnston, who worked together to create the iconic typeface still seen across London to this day. With major loans from the V&A, London Transport Museum, Craft Study Centre, Monotype, private collections and Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft’s own permanent collection, this exhibition looks at the birth of the typeface which remains as influential today as it did 100 years ago.

The exhibition opens on the 12th March at the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft.


DO: TERRARIUM WORKSHOP

Plants (real or fake) are a staple for every home, regardless of interior style. London Terrariums began out of a sincere desire to engage with nature in the urban environment.

After receiving their first commission, they became dedicated in creating beautiful bespoke terrariums and hosting popular workshops throughout London. Their creations look so pretty, and we love that you can make your own to display at home. We’d place ours on a window sill to catch the light as part of a beautiful botanical display!

Find out more information on their workshops  here.


VISIT: URBAN FOOD FEST, SHOREDITCH

The Urban Food Fest market has 15 different street food trucks and stalls serving a delicious array of global gourmet street food dishes alongside a premium and specialist cocktail bar. Add in the selection of international wines, prosecco and champagne, plus live musicians and seating areas and you’re set for an amazing Saturday night!

Hosted in a Shoreditch car park and founded by City lawyer and investment banking duo Jessica and Mike, this foodie party seems like an unlikely street-food success. However, they have received high acclaim with features in the Time Out, Vogue, Elle, Esquire, Daily Telegraph and more. See you there!

Every Saturday from 5 March 2016, Midday – Midnight @ Euro Car Parks Shoreditch High St London.

Take a look at their Instagram for some serious meal envy.


 DRINK: FIRST AID BOX

First Aid Box in Herne Hill, London offers something that other bars don’t: ‘cure-all’ creative drinks. Inspired by health and nutrition these cocktails infuse herbs and other super food ingredients aimed at giving you more than just incredible flavour and a hangover! Just what the doctor ordered. With decor riddled with vintage hospital gear (complete with pipettes,  medicine bottles and clinical white tiling) First Aid Box is the perfect stop for a quirky night out.

Feel free to indulge in their equally amazing menu of meat,cheese and charcuterie from local suppliers to accompany your tipple. Delicious!

119 Dulwich Rd, London SE24 0NG

TREAT: THE HARDIHOOD

Okay, Lent is up on the 24th (you can do it!), but it hardly matters when your treats are free from everythingThe Hardihood provide plant based confectionery free from refined sugar, gluten, wheat and soya. I know, we can’t quite believe it either by the looks of them…  Stocked in a variety of stores across London, these cakes have featured in Grazia, have a stunning Tumblr and Instagram presence and we want to eat them all now. With Easter fast approaching we figured theses would be an amazing alternative for, well, everyone!
