Don’t know what’s on this weekend? We do… Cuckooz Curates is a weekly blog dedicated to highlighting our picks of the best events happening in East London. We’ve done the groundwork so you don’t have to.
First of December (or well, 29th, in this case) brings with it Mariah Carey, mulled wine and all things gingerbread. And if that seems too early for some, well, King’s Cross’ administration begs to differ. Starting Wednesday, King’s Boulevard begins to accommodate all those eager Christmas fanatics with a series of workshops, markets and tastings in a one-week only pop-up. Get styled by Radio Hair whilst getting crafty for your loved ones – all while getting a headstart on the upcoming Christmas madness. Here’s what you can expect from this little extravaganza right on the doorstep of your Cuckooz King’s Cross apartments.
EVERYMAN presents… + Christmas Film Quiz
For those that find Christmas to be equivalent with a carefully curated selection of holiday movies, but also for those Grinches who aren’t really in the mood for caroling yet – the Everyman’s new installment’s programme has something prepared for every one. On Thursday, 30 November, film freaks can test their knowledge – and on Sunday, 2nd December, the finale comes in the form of Wenders’ Buena Vista Social Club – transporting us to warmer times.
From drop-in classes to collage workshops, for those wanting to put a personal twist on their Christmas gifts this year, King’s Cross would be a good place to start. Plant pots and personalized Christmas cards are also in the cards, so make sure not to miss out. The workshops run daily from noon to 3.30pm.
Christmas Makers Boutique
Independent London designers bring their one-of-a-kind items to help you go that extra mile in getting your loved ones a little special something. Every day comes with different themes so – Thursday brings together Urban Makers East and Made in Arts London, Friday has Urban Makers East and Drink Shop & Do and Saturday – Independent Labels Market for all music lovers around.
Morning Yoga + FRAME Detox
And last but not least, to prepare for the holiday feasts incoming, KXMas brings you some special fitness classes – all at no cost. And they’ve got rise & shine detox classes too for all those busy travellers!
KXMas runs from 29 Nov – 2 Dec at Two Pancras Square, King’s Boulevard, King’s Cross, London N1C 4AG.
