Fancy a ping-pong rave in Shoreditch? Okay not really… but Bounce Shoreditch is as close as it gets. Just a three-minute walk from Old Street Station, customers can play ping-pong under UV lights to their heart’s content. Ping-Pong is thirsty work, so there’s a bar right beside the tables to quench your thirst and an on-site pizza restaurant in case you get peckish.
Coffee and art go hand in hand at Café Adagio in Croydon, a place where you can relax to chilled out tunes and take in the surrounding exhibitions. Contemporary painter Roy Thomas currently has his colourful works on display. The exhibition includes portraits of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, soulful singer Stevie Wonder and award winning actress Nicole Kidman.
Experience the zodiac collection at Brick Lane’s Tatty Devine store. The quirky blend of black outlines and coloured accessories and features compliments the unique designs of the jewellery itself. The creative mind behind the display is Ella Masters, a fine art graduate with a flair for illustration. Ellie’s display is running at the store until November 18
The Backyard Comedy Club will feature Harry Hill, the master of surreal and silly comedy on Wednesday November 18. The charismatic comic will be performing alongside Birthday Girls, a three-woman sketch group described by the Telegraph as “Britain’s funniest women” and Mr Susie, an act endorsed as “brilliant” by The Guardian.
Cake and comedy are in abundance at New Cross Inn next Thursday. Quirky comic The Story Beast will be headlining the show. Other performances of music and poetry will take place. But if that doesn’t excite you enough, there’s also a free piece of cake for everyone! The event takes place November 19. Click here to see EastLondonLines’ previous feature on The Story Beast.
