A quarter of the year has already passed and for those of you who are still maintaining their new year’s resolutions, I salute you whole heartedly! For those of you (like me), who are dwindling and need something to re-energise you, then attending The #London Coffee Festival this April may provide the ‘kick’ you need. The #festival takes place on the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th of April at the Old Truman Brewery, and commences with an espresso martini party. The Coffee Masters completion will take place with sixteen world-class baristas competing for the much coveted title and a £5,000 cash prize. This tantalising event will have over 250 artisan coffee gourmet stalls, tastings and demonstrations, interactive workshops, street food, coffee-based cocktails, live music and art exhibitions. Visitors will also be able to gain access to Milk & Sugar which will be showcasing some of London’s cutting edge fashion, design, art, #lifestyle and wellbeing brands. This highly caffeinated festival will definitely give you a fresh supply of gusto to help get you through the rest of the year.
Now for those of you who aren’t much of a coffee connoisseur, please don’t feel disheartened as there is also a treat for you this month. Bring your tea loving taste buds and #dancing shoes to St Katherine Docks for the famous Tea #Dance in #celebration of British National Tea Day on Friday 21st April. There will be two dance sessions taking place from 12pm – 2pm and 5pm -7pm, where you can dance to vintage music from the 1920s to the 1950s. A plethora of tea will be available to help keep you feeling mellow after partaking in such rigorous activities. The World Food Market will also be onsite from 11am – 3pm, and as this year, this event happens to coincide with Her Majesty’s 91st Birthday, so you’ll get to hear a 62 gun salute being fired off from the nearby Tower of London at 1pm. Did you ever think these caffeinated drinks, that provide us with our daily shots of #energy, would be the basis of such entertaining events?
