Heddon Street Kitchen’s Summer Promenade, 28th June – 21st August

Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, Heddon Street Kitchen will transform its terrace into a vintage inspired Summer Promenade where diners will be invited to create their own ice cream lollies using fun flavours, bold toppings and enticing sauces. The terrace will be elegantly decorated with seaside inspired striped umbrellas, wooden boards and even an ice cream bicycle to transport you back to childhood holidays by the sea. Visitors at Heddon Street Kitchen will be able to create their own ice cream lollies from a selection of base flavours including raspberry, lychee and rose, wild strawberry and the surprisingly delicious salt and vinegar ice cream. Open all day from the 28th of June until the 21st of August, the Summer Promenade is the perfect destination dining experience for the whole family.

The Magnum Emporium, Designed by Mollie King

Singer and fashion favourite Mollie King has partnered with Magnum to bring the playful and sophisticated worlds to life in the Magnum Pink and Black Emporium; a stunning immersive experience which brings to life Mollie’s imagination of these two worlds in a beautiful and stylish way.

Taking inspiration from a dreamlike floral garden for the playful world of Pink, and an art-deco inspired sultry jazz club for the sophisticated world of Black, the Magnum Emporium, designed by Mollie King, is hotly anticipated to draw in the crowds as it also features the world-famous Magnum Dipping bar at its heart.  This is a unique opportunity to sample a delicious freshly dipped Magnum. There is a limited availability of dipped ice creams so make sure you join the queue early to avoid disappointment!
