R+R Pop-Up Coming to Carousel Seven Dials
This coming January we’re putting our best foot forward by transforming Carousel Seven Dials into The R&R Pop-Up – four days of health, wellbeing and handy life hacks for making those new year’s resolutions stick… We’ve partnered with our friends at BOL Foods, Penguin Random House and Qured to bring you a series of talks, Q&As and workshops to help you blow away the cobwebs and start 2020 as you mean to go on.
On the ground floor we’ll have a curated selection of self care and wellbeing focussed books for you to browse along with our pop-up cafe. There will be a choice of healthy snacks and our homemade teas & kombucha available throughout the day. In the mornings (8am-10am) Coconut Collaborative will be sorting our breakfasts with a breakfast bar with yoghurts and various toppings. At lunch (12pm-2pm) BOL Foods will be joining us to serve up some tasty plant-based salads. We can practically feel those holiday pounds shedding already.
The bottom floor will be packed full everyday with motivating classes, inspiring talks and relaxing therapies for you to enjoy. All we ask is for a £2 donation that goes to our charity of choice, MIND. For timings and descriptions, see the timetable below.
