They think that sharing food with strangers is one of the nicest ways to spread happiness. And if the food is free, and has been saved from going to waste, it makes it even tastier.

Inspired and supported by the wonderful People’s Kitchen (Dalston, East London), the Brixton People’s Kitchen collects food surplus from local shops and markets, invites volunteers to cook together, and welcomes everyone to enjoy a delicious meal with each other.

They are starting out this month, so they welcome everyone to add ideas, suggestions, and a pair of hands to the joyful stew they’re cooking!

To donate food or to help them with the cooking, please contact Fan 07810288879 or brixtonpk@gmail.com

Silent Disco, somewhere in London…

4047062276_569268d921

They are a pop-up silent disco based in London. Using combination of iPhones, portable wi-fi networks, headphones, charisma, apps, sounds, shapes and spaces they create instant dance floors, momentary raves and transient music events in any and every place they can.

 

The concept behind fyi disco is simple; what if your iPhone could function like a pair of headphones at a silent disco?

 

Go here to find out how it works, then just follow the instructions and turn up at their next location. We run off battery power alone, which means we can pop-up anywhere we fancy, just be sure to charge up before showing up…

 

If you want to get in touch with them it means you’re probably a nice person, go on and say hello using whichever method you fancy, they’ll love you all the more for it :0)

 

Where is it?

fyidisco can happen anywhere at any time, for the most up to date information on their next location check their twitter or facebook.

Union Market, Fulham

 

Info and Image from unionmarket.co.uk

 

Union Market is a new and unique food retail proposition. Their concept is resolutely British combining the theatre and authenticity of popular farmers’ markets with the convenience and reliability of supermarkets.

Union Market’s proposition is about traceable, natural, regional, high quality, best practice British food. We want to deconstruct the old drab supermarket model and replace it with the fun of shopping and eating in a beautiful food hall that reflects timeless rural values and practices. They will have farmers, chefs, suppliers and trained staff on hand to enthuse and explain about the various links in their food chain. The store will champion British food in a setting created by British craftsmen past and present, using natural materials like wood, brick, slate and zinc, with a focus on functionality.

They will be affordable and accessible and they have joined up green policy on ingredients, emissions, waste and packaging, responding to consumer concerns on health and the environment. The Union brand will be further strengthened by three unique and powerful brand partners in wine, bread and cheese: Rothschild wine, Bread Factory and Neal’s Yard Dairy, all of them pre-eminent in their fields.

 

Opening times –

Monday to Saturday 7am to  10pm

Sundays 9am to 9pm


472 Fulham Road
London, SW6 1BY
