Coffee houses aren’t a new thing; they’ve been around for yonks serving pick-me-ups and fuelling the daily grind since the late 1600s. To celebrate the fact, CultureLabel and UnrealCity Audio have teamed up for a re-imagining of the 17th and 18th century coffee house experience, offering an authentic taste of coffee-powered London in the modern age.
Caffeine lovers can slurp in style at the Keeper’s House at the Royal Academy, which will play host to a night of spontaneous performances, spirited debate and talks from the experts. They’re not giving too much away but they do have two rules: you must speak to strangers and you must bring a hat! Intriguing indeed.
Thursday 8 May. Book tickets here eventbrite.co.uk/the-coffeehouse-experiment.
