  • curate

    Like a bit of culture with your chowing down? Well an irregular popup called CurAte (see what they did there?) hits Clapton next week and it sounds worth a punt.

    The pair behind it Jenny Barcelos and Anna Beketov describe it as "new initiative that seeks to save souls through a combination of therapeutic visuals, nourishing cuisine and the art of conversation."
