A Pop-Up Beach Has Landed in Walthamstow

Until 8th September 2024
Big Penny Social, Priestley Way, London

You don’t need to go to the seaside this summer (well, unless you want to of course) because it’s coming to you. Walthamstow is becoming ‘Walthamstow-on-Sea’ until September as Big Penny Social is transforming its terrace into a British seaside resort. Kitted out with deckchairs, sand pits and private beach huts, the pop-up beach is open on weekends for Londoners to soak up the sun with classic fish & chips, soft-serve ice cream, draught beers and frozen cocktails.

Try Baked Beans, Olive, Pesto and Vinegar Flavoured Ice Cream at this Pop-Up

Until 18th August 2024
11 Pont Street, London SW1X 9EH

Just like last year, Anya Hindmarch’s playful spirit is out in full force this summer with the return of her Ice Cream Project concept store, which is serving up scoops of Heinz Baked Beans, Branston Piccalilli, Sarson’s Vinegar, Kikkoman Soy Sauce, Filippo Berio Pesto and Perello Olive flavoured ice creams. Yes really. The idea behind what is surely the wackiest ice cream parlour in town is to celebrate Anya Hindmarch’s fave brands by taking products that would typically be found in the pantry and putting them in the freezer instead. And if you’re not feeling so adventurous, you can get scoops of Jaffa Cakes, Tiptree Orange Marmalade, Bird’s Custard, Tropicana Orange Juice and Sun-Pat Peanut Butter flavoured ice creams instead.
