Every week we share a trend report internally – we pick out the exciting, interesting and sometimes odd things that are happening in London, but it’s always something that makes us smile. We thought we’d share it with you too, because we’re nice like that.
Alcohol + ice lollies = winning. POPS have been around for a couple of years, but recently launched a Pimm’s flavour. We may have ordered a few boxes from Ocado…

WHERE YOU’LL FIND US
Desert Island Dishes
Just Eat’s Food Fest is returning to Red Market, EC1. From Friday evening through to Sunday night you can sample Britain’s favourite takeaway choices that they just couldn’t live without if they ended up on a desert island. The highlight? Desert Island Doggy Hour on Sunday – while Just Eat did their desert island dish research, they also found out most people would prefer to be stranded with their pet instead of a family member.

Chug on a Tug
The first floating hot tub is arriving in London this summer. We’re a little puzzled about this one, but intrigued nevertheless – essentially it’s a hot tub tug boat chugging along a London canal. And you can chug your own alcohol, so choose your friend’s wisely as there’s no toilet on board and it’s a 90 minute trip.
