Have you ever looked at the knot of old belts snaking around the floor of your wardrobe and wished it would turn into a cask of ale? No? Me neither. That said, on May 17 social enterprise/furniture design collaboration Sweet Notions are hosting a night at the Queens Head on Action Street, Kings Cross where Londoners can swap their unwanted accessories for a raffle ticket and the chance to win the equivalent of 72 pints, donated by the East London Brewing Company. The belts will then turned into furniture to show the wonders of upcycling. Sounds like a fair deal to us. Ellie Clayton
