Spitalfields E1 -

Treats not tricks this Halloween - Devilishly delicious treats for all ages
Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without some sweet treats, and we have some of the best in London on offer this October! If your sweet tooth calls for chocolate, head to Montezumas and pick up chocolate eyeballs and pumpkins, as well as a range of vegan chocolates. If that wasn’t enough, the baking artists at Patisserie Valerie, Konditor & Cook and Lola’s Cupcakes have created special handmade spooky cakes, biscuits and pastries for the occasion. So, whether you’re picking things up for the trick or treaters, or something indulgent for yourself, we’ve got plenty to offer!
Café Art MyLondon - Art by those in need, to benefit those in need
Café Art is a programme that connects people affected by homelessness to their wider communities through the power of art. In June this year, they handed out 100 single-use cameras to homeless people, and gave them five days to photograph London from their unique perspective. The best images were placed into a shortlist, and visitors of Spitalfields E1 voted for their favourites, with the 13 best becoming the 2018 Café Art MyLondon calendar. All of the money raised from sales of the calendar will go directly to the homeless people who formed it. We think this is a fantastic cause, and are delighted to support the project. If you would also like to support them, you can purchase their calendar on Kickstarter.
