Save to Collections
The festive season is very much on the way, meaning you need to get as well as you possibly can in the run-up to it before your inevitable demise begins around the 10th of December. Picture yourself as a hungry, healthy hippo and get these balls (?) of good-living down you.
Food, drink, exercise, sleep, codeine - we’ve gradually learnt that these things all have an impact on our health. Well it’s time to add buildings to the enigmatic equilibrium of good living. This major show examines the positive and negative influence the built environment has on our physical and mental health.
As ever with the Wellcome Collection, they go in deep with the research. It’s a fresh take on what a building is capable of, featuring art works alongside installations and design.
There are plenty of fit and flexible sorts knocking around London Fields and this place might be the reason why. Run by Sapan, this gym and fitness studio hidden away beneath the arches on Mentmore Terrace put on plenty of classes. We're talking spin cycling, weekend boot camps, vinyasa yoga, pilates and a menacing-sounding warriors circuit.
No joining fee or costly memberships - drop in and take part in a class which are normally between £5-10.
