Confirmed acts for the event include Centravrvs, The Indios, Orkesta Mendoza, and Family Atlantica, who will each be keeping up the Mexican theme with their music. On each evening at 6.30pm, Wahaca restaurant co-founder Thomasina Miers and Mexican chef Santiago Lastra Rodriguez will treat guests to a set course dinner.

Bompas & Parr to expose darker side of food storage

Culinary artists Bompas & Parr will stage an exhibition showcasing the ways in which fridges kill food, as well as preserve it. Launching on Monday, the exhibition will be curated by the British Museum of Food, which was founded by Bompas & Parr, and will run for one month. An accompanying booklet - 'Fridges Fight Back: The White Goods are Restless' - attempts to subvert the central status that fridges hold in the home. The exhibition will be held in Shoreditch and will feature a number of fridge-based art installations, as well as a commnity fridge that will allow locals to deposit food and drink, which will then be shared with local charities and food banks.

Etsy's pop-up emporium

Etsy will host a pop-up that aims to celebrate the differences that make people unique. Each day, 100 different designs of a single item will be displayed. Products on offer will include pet beds, clocks, mugs and cushions. Guests will be able to make purchases with an Instagram snap that features the hashtag #DifferenceMakesUs and, seeing as each item is entirely unique, products will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis. Etsy's emporium is part of the the global campaign Difference Makes Us, and aims to distinguish the commerce website as a place for individuals and individuality.
