Spring is here.. what to do in April!

April, the month of spring, blossom, Easter and hopefully lacking April showers!

Here are out favourite events for this month that cater to all ages and backgrounds and aiming  keep you as busy as a bee!

First of all, you can’t beat the best April / Easter food..

Food

  • Urban Food Fest

A Shoreditch car park is transfored into a food-focused party for this weekly night market which features a revolving cast of traders. Dishes from all over the world are served from stalls and trucks; regular options include Venezuelan beef arepas (maize flour flatbreads), vegan hand-made pasta, Brazilian chorizo wraps, Belgina waffles and the ubiquitous (but undeniably delicious) pulled pork in a soft brioche bun.

While many of us will spend the Easter weekend up to our eyes in brightly coloured foil wrappers devouring chocolate eggs like our life depended on it, those with less of a sweet tooth might prefer to celebrate with a savoury snack, and what better way than with a Scotch egg?

Kensington Place has created a twist on a Scotch egg, which will be served throughout the Easter break featuring smoked bacon and apple.

  • Hawker House

    Following last year’s fun-packed Winter in Dalston, Street Feast’s indoor night market Hawker House is moving to a warehouse in Canada Water for two levels of street food, bars and their now-famous whisky roulette. New for this year is Neil Rankin’s Meat Hook, a three-metre whole-animal grill that’ll cook up Argentine-style meats to be served with shoestring fries and chimichurri.

Drink

  • Easter cocktails at Duck and Waffle, meaning a trio of Easter-themed cocktails on pour at Duck & Waffle in the Heron Tower for one week only from Friday 25 March. Aimed at chocoholics keen for a liquid cocoa fix, the Nutella Negroni twists on the Italian classic via Bombay Sapphire gin, Campari, vermouth and a Nutella infusion.

Also in line-up are shots of coffee-washed Bacardi superior, hay-infused white chocolate and black truffle served in hollowed out duck eggs; and the Beetroot & Chocolate Royalé, a sweet-savoury twist on a Kir Royale featuring beet and cacao liqueur topped with Champagne. All three cost £14.

ABQ Pop Up

If you’ve ever watched Breaking Bad, then you’ll know exactly why this pop up bar is letting you make cocktails with a chemistry set inside an RV.

Popping up until April, ABQ will put you inside a set of Walter White’s iconic yellow overalls and a gas mask, then let you mix three insane cocktails, including the Tripping (which changes flavour as you drink it) and a smoking martini (using whatever base spirit you choose to bring with you).

Details: Now – April | Cleve Workshops, Boundary Street, E2 7JE | £25pp, walk-ins welcome

  • London Coffee Festival

Returning for 2016, the London Coffee Festival is the UK’s largest coffee and artisan food event, a celebration of London’s vibrant coffee culture featuring gourmet coffee, speciality tea, artisan food, demonstrations from world-class baristas, live music and a comprehensive ‘lab’ seminar programme that will educate even the keenest of coffee lovers.

  • Forest Restaurant and Cabin Bar

The roof of Selfridges has been transformed into an autumnal woodland for this wintry pop-up thats here until the end of April!

Activities

Relive happy (or traumatic) memories of sports day at riverside restaurant Le Pont de La Tour this Easter, which will be hosting an egg and spoon race along Butler’s Wharf. Also taking part in the race are Cantina del Ponte, Butler’s Wharf Chop House and the Blueprint Café.

The races begin at Cantina del Ponte with a 2pm start time for children and 2.15pm time for adults. Prizes galore await for the winners. Both Le Pont de la Tour and Cantina del Ponte have created Easter-themed menus running throughout the weekend including roast spring lamb and Easter cake.

The London Marathon – 24th April

With its throngs of cheering crowds and fancy dress fundraisers, the London Marathon is our very own world-famous running race. Covering 26.2 miles and shutting down roads left, right and centre, it takes over the city for one weekend every April.

Feast of St George

There’s a special Shakespearean theme to the Mayor of London’s party in honour of St George this year. St George’s Day started out in the thirteenth century as a national day of feasting, so look out for the live demos from leading London chefs as well as an English farmer’s market and banqueting area.
