There’s so many exciting things going on in King’s Cross this summer we had to dedicate a blog to it – here’s the low down so you can get all excited!
Food & Drink Frenzy
In the hope that the weather is going to pick up, the street food collective Kerb will be taking over Granary Square next weekend to bring you Noshville! It’s all about Americana, so get stuck in with Black Angus brisket and Creole spiced fries. Wash it all down with a watermelon margarita slushy while you listen to musicians and DJs playing music from the Deep South. The event is free and takes place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th June.
For something a bit more celebratory and late night, head down to Drake & Morgan at King’s Cross for the first of our monthly Supper Clubs. Spice up your Saturday evening in our Green Room Bar; enjoy a welcome cocktail on arrival and little extra treats between courses when you order from the A La Carte menu. There’ll also be a DJ to take you into the early hours. For all the details see here.
Seven Kinds of Magic
One of the world’s most famous, and certainly favourite illustrators finally has a gallery dedicated to him, and it’s right on our doorstep. Having such memorable illustrations as those in Roald Dahl’s books, he certainly deserves it! The Quentin Blake Gallery is housed in the House of Illustration and will be the only place with a permanent exhibition of Blake’s original artwork. Find out more about the opening exhibition ‘Seven Kinds of Magic’ here.
Books for Brunch
Moved from its sister event at The Fable Bar, Books for Brunch is the perfect Saturday afternoon activity. Next Saturday on the 25th June, Rachel Kelly will be joining Elena Lappin in our library to talk to you all about ‘Walking on Sunshine’, followed by a Q&A. Hatchards will be selling copies of the book on site. The event is complimentary, as is tea and coffee and will last no more than an hour, however RSVP is essential.
Meet the Maker
Spice up your weekday evenings after work with our ‘Meet the Maker’ sessions. On the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month we’ll inviting different brands to come in and talk you through their product and do a guided tasting. Starting at 6.30pm, the events are complimentary and will last no more than 1½ hours, but RSVP is essential. Our first in the series with Sipsmith was a huge success and we can’t wait for Duppy Share to join us on the 28th June. To find out more about Duppy Share’s session click here.
