Good Morning!

Just a quick buzz about a few lovely things that are on this weekend in King's Cross (naturally) Firstly, over the weekend 23nd-24th April we see the run of two truely awesome performances, 'In Time' at the London Sinfonietta starting at 7pm and '1000 Revolutions per minute' by Periplum starting at McGlynn's Pub at 6pm!

Secondly, there is a Ukelele Cabaret on at the Lincoln Lounge on York Way, it's on April 27th and starts at 8:00pm! It looks like a really nice way to spend an evening and I myself am a huge fan of any genre of live music.

Please go and see something, majority of it is free, and so if you are too then why not treat yourself!?

Hello lovely blog readers,

I am dying to tell you about an awesome new cafe: LUMEN cafe!

They say that what they do is very simple – they buy the best ingredi­ents that they can find and turn them into deli­cious food, cooked from scratch. They make all their own cakes and bis­cuits, pickles and chut­neys, dress­ings, may­on­naise and breakfast jams!

Lumen Cafe is owned and run as a social enterprise by the Holy Cross Centre Trust (, a local charity which works to promote positive approaches to mental health, homelessness and refugees and asylum seekers. All profits to go into supporting timebanking and other community projects, and so you can have a delicious lunch and feel a little better about yourself too!

Lumen Cafe is part of the award winning development at Lumen, 88 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9RT and for any more info please visit their wonderful website:

If your in or around King's cross I can't think of anywhere better for a bite to eat?

Hello everyone!

I've just been on a rather long tour (on foot) of King's Cross to chase up important places that might be showcasing our all important flyers for REVEAL!

A quarter I admit to not finding, another quater were closed, the 3rd quarter already had the beautiful flyers and so my work there had been done, but at a few golden places, about a quarter of the list I was given, there were lovely people who genuinely wanted to here about REVEAL and were more than happy to take some flyers off me and display them proudly! These places are The London Canal Museam, Thornhill Community Centre, Marchmont Street Community Centre, and a very cool pub called the Cross Kings. To anyone working at the above places I say thank you, and to anyone in the area of these places, do pop in and pick up a brouchure, you won't be dissapointed.

On another note, I totally under estimated how big King's Cross is, and also, how beautiful it is, there are so many quiet little streets, corner cafes and peaceful rows of terraces that look like they've just wondered out from Notting Hill. Well done King's Cross you've once again made me smile!

What's been happening this week with the Reveal Crew...

Getting creative on the canal

Last weekend, Reveal’s coordinator Catherine headed down the canal to catch up with artists Sophie Charalambous & Helen Maurer at the St Pancras Cruise Club Harbourmaster’s Ball. There was a great buzz about Reveal amongst the splendidly-costumed boating community, with the creative workshops already underway. This wonderful King’s Cross community are already preparing for their illuminated narrow boat installation, taking place between April 22 -25. We can’t wait!

Out & About with Time Out

Reveal’s producer Susanna took Time Out deputy editor Rachel Halliburton and Photographer Greg on an alternative site-seeing tour around Kings Cross, to check out some of the unique spaces that are about to be Revealed!
