Instagram's First London Pop-up Shop - with 6 Brands - in Covent Garden

Carrie Elizabeth Jewellery
Instagram is opening a pop-up shop in Covent Garden on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October 2018 with 6 popular UK Instagram brands.  The six brands are:  Fashion - RIXO & neverfullydressed, Skincare - Hæckels (aka @madeinmargate), Jewellery - carrie_elizabeth_jewellery, Kids' clothing - scampanddude, and Gifting - oh_squirrel.  It'll be at 9-11 Shorts Gardens, and you will be able to meet and chat to the founders on both days.  A great idea - and I think it's going to be busy!

"Head to Instagram's Covent Garden pop up boutique on Friday, 5th and Saturday, 6th October for a shopping experience like no other.
At the exclusive two-day event some of the most exciting fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands on Instagram including RIXO, Never Fully Dressed and Carrie Elizabeth will showcase capsule collections within an achingly-Instagrammable venue.
The full list includes:
Digital-first fashion brand RIXO; started by two best friends Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey from a London living room, the business has built an army of 121k Instagram fans thanks to its vintage inspired, hand-painted prints and #HumansofRixo movement.
Womenswear brand @neverfullydressed, known for its effortlessly chic prints and cult shapes. Their inclusive approach and refreshing style videos have gained the brand an impressive international following of over 230k Instagrammers.
Skincare and wild fragrance specialist Hæckels, who create unique and innovative products from natural ingredients sourced from the British coastline and have built a 15k-strong Instagram following.
Inspiring kids (and grown ups!) clothing brand @scampanddude which began life when founder Jo was separated from her children undergoing brain surgery. She was inspired to create a brand that helps kids feel stronger when apart from their loved ones. The brand is now stocked in Liberty and Harrods and has just been awarded ‘Kids Brand of the Year’ by Drapers. They have 72.2k followers on Instagram.
@carrie_elizabeth_jewellery founded three years ago by an ex jewellery buyer who saw a gap in the market for affordable, beautiful, demi-fine jewellery using real diamonds and semi-precious stones. They now have a following of 40k.
Handmade stationery and gifting brand @oh_squirrel which was born from founder Katie spotting a gap in the market for tasteful and fun cards and accessories, which quickly grew the brand's Instagram following to over 15k. The brand - which has been called a “millennial dream” - is now stocked in Fenwicks and Fortnum & Mason.
As well as browsing the rails and sampling products, shoppers will have a chance to hear first-hand from the founders about what it takes to build and manage a business on Instagram."

Lucky & Joy's Pop-up Chinese Eatery on Hackney Road


Lucky & Joy, one of the most creative pop-ups of recent years, are back in Hackney for a new pop-up at 184 Hackney Road, formerly the Bad Sports bar.  Expect regional Chinese cooking from chef Ellen Parr, including ribs, skewers, rice pots and more, with a weekend brunch menu too.  It opens on Thursday 27th September.

"East London’s much loved Chinese eatery returns this Autumn on Hackney Road for a residency at the former Bad Sports site.
Chef Ellen Parr will be serving up a typically bold and flavourful menu that will include some of Lucky & Joy’s signature dishes, the famed cold sesame noodles and Xinjiang Big Plate Chicken as well new ones inspired by recent travels to far corners of regional China. The tick box menu’s offerings will be making the most of the charcoal grill with smokey skewers and lamb ribs.
There will also be a small selection of cocktails, natural wine and plenty of Tsingtao to combat and complement the spicy and fiery flavours of the food.
Since last summer’s brilliantly reviewed residency in Bethnal Green’s Hurwundeki, Ellen and Pete have been using their time to travel to the farthest reaches of China soaking up inspiration and ideas to bring back East London. Trips to Xinjiang, Xi’an, Chengdu and Hong Kong have inspired an incredibly diverse menu, encapsulating all facets of Chinese cuisine.
With the menu changing almost weekly you can expect to try many different dishes of the Lucky and Joy repertoire both young and new. 
Lucky and Joy will also be launching a new brunch menu. Inspired by HK style cafes and Shanghai street food with a Yunnan style Bloody Mary to top it off."

The Literary Hour's 'Treasure Island' Supper Clubs in Clapton


The Literary Hour, who have hosted supper clubs around such iconic books as  Wind In The Wilows and Around The World in 80 Days, are back this autumn with a supper club to take you into the world of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.  Taking place in Clapton, E5, over eight evenings from 27th September to 6th October, tickets are just £54 which includes a feast based on characters and incidents in the book.  Go!

"Join The Literary Hour and Long John Silver as they host a riotous knees up using techniques as old as fire to carefully curates courses with thoroughly modern twists to ensure you survive the perilous crossing. It wouldn't be a sailor's life without tinned, salted, dried and smoked goods, but don't worry you won't be catching scurvy, as we're spicing up these age old preserving techniques to ensure a sumptuously safe passage is made to the treasure.
If you're a discerning diner in search of a sumptuous yet adventurous dinner then sampling Long John Silver (or Barbecue as he's known affectionately to his amigos) tastiest dishes and finest grog will be exactly your flavour. Amongst other delights, you'll devour the finest sustainably sourced smoked kid (please note no children were hurt in the preparation of this menu, but if Long John Silver had had his way Jim Hawkins future may not have been quite so illustrious). 
Please note this supper club is for adults 18+ only. We can only cater for pescetarian and vegetarian dietary requirements at this pop-up. There's a reasonably priced bar selling paradisaical cocktails, wine, beer and soft drinks. Doors will open at 18:30 and you'll be greeted with a welcome cocktail and canapés and then guests will sit down from 19:00. 
As this is a supper club all guests will feast upon the same menu (with the exception of veggie and pesci alternatives for some courses) and the vibe of the evening is very relaxed; we will be creating an environment and ambience that lets you relax and enjoy the evening with old friends and hopefully make new friends too. We won't be rushing you or asking you for your table back so please come prepared to make good time and convivial memories."

Weds-Sat only
6.30pm - 11pm

Where - Palm2, 152-156 Lower Clapton Rd, E5 0QJ
