October 2014

So yarn fun!

We are thrilled to be involved in a cockle-warming event today that even the coldest of October days couldn’t send a chill through. The Campaign for Wool is running a bicycle ride like no other today to start Wool week off with a blast. The Wool Ride, involving over 300 wool-loving cyclists from across the country, will be starting at Potters Field in London, at 9am sharp today (5th October).

Find inspiration at London Literature Festival this October

As the Indian summer draws to a close and the nights start to shorten, Southbank Centre has a tasty antidote to the oncoming Autumnal days. Their annual Literature Festival kicked off yesterday and runs until the 13 October with food for through from some of the world’s best writers and performers. Quick tongued wordsmith Kate Tempest performs some new and thought provoking poetry (10 Oct) and the legend that is Stephen Fry shares excerpts from his latest memoir More Fool Me, chronicling his escapades in the 80s and 90s – sure to be a bestseller once its released.
