London Liming
If the spoken word is your bag, or you dig carnivals, dancing and general social shmoozing, then you should probably head to Rich Mix in Bethnal Green on Thursday for Tillt's London Liming extravaganza. Tilt is a spoken word organisation that puts on events in collaboration with well known poets such as Dean Atta and Deanne Rogers, as well as various talented musicians. The result is a mash-up of music, words and dancing under one roof.

Confidential Tip-Off: The term 'liming' comes from the Trinidadian pastime of 'limin' or 'lime' and is making a resurgence of some sort London after the enormous success of Tilt's previous dates.

£7/£5 concessions per ticket.

Valentines for Everyone

Valentines For Everyone
Over the Valentine’s Day weekend, FareShare will be collaborating with Forgotten Feast and their eco-chef Tom Hunt in a pop-up restaurant at FairShare's depot in Bermondsey. Offering an extraordinary three-course banqueting experience, Valentine for Everyone utilises delicious but unwanted foods that might otherwise end up in a compost heap. From heart to honey, pheasant to parsnip and even kaffir lime leaves, surplus food will be transformed into a bountiful seasonal banquet. In a true culinary exploration, the pop-up will cater for vegetarian and red-blooded carnivores alike, and, as everyone will sit together for the meal, if you don’t have a date this may be the perfect place to find one.

Confidential Tip-Off: Each ticket sold will provide 80 meals for the hungry, thanks to the charity StreetSmart matching the number of meals raised through ticket sales.
