Europe’s highest croquet lawn, hosted by Pimm’s Cider Cup, has opened at The View from The Shard, in a new residency at one of London’s most stunning venues.  For four weeks, guests visiting the jaw-dropping venue will be able to book a game of croquet for themselves and their friends with a special Pimm’s Cider Cup ticket, or play on a first come, first served basis upon entry to The View from The Shard.  The brand new croquet lawn will include top of the range Jaques of London mallets and hoops, with trained stewards on hand to walk players through the rules of the sport.

Pimm’s are issuing a rallying cry to the British Public this summer, to embrace the quirks and idiosyncrasies that make British summers so special.  After new research revealed that the game was in danger of dying out in its 165th anniversary year, Pimm’s have been working closely with Joe Jaques (the Great-Great-Grandson of the founder of Croquet) to reinvigorate the game with the launch of the Pimm’s Cider Croquet Cup.

Joe Jaques said: “This year marks 165 years since my great-great-grandfather invented croquet and – amazingly – 165 years since Pimm’s was first produced too. Back then, croquet was one of the most popular British sports, but over the last few decades we’ve seen fewer people taking up the sport.  I’m so pleased to be involved in getting the British public playing it again.”

Comedian Alexander Armstrong, who helped launch the Pimm’s Cider Croquet Cup, said “We’ve got to make sure that Britain doesn’t lose croquet entirely. I love the game – there couldn’t be a better summer’s day in my mind than pitching up to play croquet, cider in hand, at the local park or your garden – or even at the View from The Shard!”

To confirm a time for croquet play, you can purchase a Pimm’s Cider Cup + Croquet ticket for £29.95 which includes a bottle of the cider tipple.  Tickets to the View from The Shard are available at www.theviewfromtheshard.com.

Players must be 18+. The pop up finishes Sunday 21st August 2016.

Pimm’s Cider Cup blends English cider, fruit and glorious Pimm’s No. 1 Cup.  Available in British Summer Fruits, Mango & Passion Fruit, Strawberry & Cucumber and Plum & Red Apple flavours.

We are massive Everyman fans and were stoked (now there's a word you no longer hear) to realise that a little mini me Everyman (Everyman on the Corner) was popping up in Kings Cross.

Everyman is getting ready in good time for the opening of it's three screen mega cinema in the soon to be completed Coal Drops Yard. Coal Drops is the last large chunk of the beautiful redevelopment plans in Kings Cross and which will be finished in 2018.

Right now though pop to this Everyman on the Corner for a intimate experience with just 32 seats. The pop-up shows three films a day and you can expect The BFG, Ab Fab, and the rather disturbing Neon Demon on the bill currently.

Opens until the end of 2017
Plimsoll Building, Handyside Street, London, N1C 4UR

IMG_1291-EDIT low resYee Cho (pronounced ‘yay cho’) is a Burmese dining experience for those looking to discover something different. Hosted by half-Burmese chef Freya Coote, the pop up takes its name from a close family friend who taught her how to cook Burmesedishes and cared for her Nana. Yee Cho also means sweet or fresh water inBurmese, a metaphor for the undiscovered food of Myanmar.  IMG_1124-EDIT low res

Much of what is served at Yee Cho is based on traditional recipes from Freya’s family kitchen in Yangon alongside other dishes that take inspiration from typical Burmese ingredients to create something completely new. Food is served in sharing bowls to reflect the tradition of eating communally and is also a chance to get to know other diners.43950022-EDIT low res

As Burma (or Myanmar) becomes more popular with travellers, interest in its rich culture and unique food is rapidly increasing. The food of Myanmar brings together sweet, sour and salty flavours along with crunchy textures, offering its own strong identity.

Hosted at the much-loved boozer The Gun in Homerton, expect a special dining experience; something entirely new for London foodies.

Yee Cho takes place on Tuesday 23rd August, please see below for the August menu. Another Burmese dinner will also take place on Tuesday 25th October.

The artisan-inspired doughnut is individually filled with the nation’s favourite hazelnut spread, NUTELLA® and dipped in rich chocolate icing and exquisitely decorated with a white chocolate swirl and caramelized hazelnuts.

To celebrate the launch of the new offering, Krispy Kreme is set to introduce ‘Hole in the Wall’– the ultimate pop up that offers Krispy Kreme and NUTELLA® fans an exclusive opportunity to taste the limited edition doughnut in a mini magical experience before it goes on sale nationwide.

Launching from Monday 9th May 2016, Hole in the Wall will be popping up in Krispy Kreme’s London, Holborn store and will give the public the chance to unlock a doughnut shaped hatch as they discover the magical secrets behind Krispy Kreme’s Nutty Chocolatta creation. Once the doughnut hatch is unlocked, guests will be presented with their very own limited edition Krispy Kreme branded box containing the new Nutty Chocolatta doughnut.

Krispy Kreme’s Chief Marketing Officer, Judith Denby says “We are excited to launch the unique Hole in the Wall pop-up that goes back to the roots of Krispy Kreme’s history. We hope fans enjoy eating the new Nutty Chocolatta doughnut as much as we have enjoyed making it.”

The wacky ‘Willy Wonka-esque’ experience costs £2.00 and all profits will go to Krispy Kreme’s supported charity, Teenage Cancer Trust. The pop up will be open for two weeks only, from 08:00 – 20:00 every day and the doughnut shaped hatch will disappear on Saturday 21st May 2016.

Made fresh daily, the limited edition Nutty Chocolatta doughnut will be available from all UK Krispy Kreme stores and cabinets from Friday 27th May – Sunday 4th September 2016.
