Southern Soul

Sunday June 4th
After spending a sunny Saturday indoors working Sunday was time to escape and discover what was going on as I crawled back from the gym! There was so much to catch my eye:

First crowds of cheering parents and passers by at The Scoop by the Lord Mayors office. A street dance competition, with various young groups strutting their stuff.
A dance troop called Venom, were a highlight, one team member must have been 7 ish and he was awesome; I'm sure he'll be on Britain's Got Talent in a few more years!

There is an initiative set up between the Design Museum and Wayne Hemingway from 'Red or Dead' fame, called kioskiosk. Which gives young London creatives the opportunity to sell their wares in a prime location for free.


It's currently located right next to The Scoop, it's small so keep your eyes open.

This Saturday it was creative charlie 's turn, where kids were getting creative with glue stick and feathers.

Tower Bridge open for a boat (nothing else to say about this just thought you might find it interesting).

This is the walk along Shad Thames to get to the design museum, still reminiscent from its Dock days, where Charles Dickens once placed Oliver Twist. Walking along I usually end up saying something along the lines of "..one day when I'm rich I'll live here...!"

The Design museum has two main shows on at the moment one called Super Contemporary; well worth a look.


In association with Beefeater Gin, the exhibition catalogues London design from 1960 to the present day.


Lots of interesting items including this interactive camera room called; Freedom TV by Neville Brody.

Spot the Purewhyte logo!

Listening Station by Barber Osgerby

The second exhibition is "Mariscal Drawing Life" - work by Javier Mariscal most famous for designing Cobi the official Olympic mascot of the 1992 Olympics.


A fun world to wander through.
Amazingly I managed to refrain from buying something from the Design Museum shop...all the more to spend on a Sunday Roast!
