Bored??

In Events, In London on September 17, 2009 at 11:05 am

This post was inspired by friends of mine who claim to be bored. How can you be bored living in the most cosmopolitan, culturally diverse city in Europe!

After doing a bit of research I have found that there are plenty of things happening in the next week to keep you from twiddling your thumbs.

This Weekend:

 
events_h1St Pancras – Foodie Fortnight – 16th-25th September
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Gastronaut you will be happy to hear that St Pancras station is turning itself into a food lover’s paradise.The 10 daylong event will see chefs like Richard Corrigan, Giorgio Locatelli rustling up delicious treats, as well as offering expert advice. There will be masterclasses to prepare everything from sausages to sushi and the opportunity to sample different champagnes and whiskies.
You will also be able to see the launch of The Sourced Market giving you the chance to replicate some of the food you have seen prepared using the finest ingredients all locally and seasonally sourced., with 10% off of course.

Love Architecture? This weekend 700 of London’s most revered buildings will be throwing open their doors to the public for free. The vast majority of buildings are on a turn-up-on-the day basis. However, due to limited capacity or the nature of the site, certain buildings require pre-booking. Free copies of the programme will be available from libraries in participating London boroughs.
