Scrabble immersive pop-up at Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush) on Sunday 28 October 2018

Examining the past, present and future of Scrabble through amazing immersive experiences in each giant 3D Scrabble tile! 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧

What innovation Scrabble can look forward to in the next 70 years? The pop-up introduces a specially-designed one-off, futuristic Space Edition Scrabble, made from meteoritic rock and magnetic tiles to defy gravity. The space board contains 5 grams of meteorite, with a total weight of 180g. With the use of magnetic materials inserted, it will be displayed in the experience “floating” as it would in anti-gravity space.

At the International Space Station, astronauts are encouraged to practice little habits and activities that remind them of home. Psychologists recognise such behaviour as being fundamental to maintaining an astronaut’s mental health and peace of mind. Playing Scrabble is one of the most popular of these spacetime activities, but there’s just one problem: no gravity.

The pop-up is just one piece on the board of 70th celebrations, that include a cultural film that brings together the UK’s brightest and most interesting young wordsmiths – rappers, poets and writers – to explore the evolution of language and words through the lens of Scrabble!

You can purchase the special edition 70th Anniversary Scrabble board online and in Westfield London (Shepherds Bush) at The Entertainer, Argos outside the centre and online.

Re:Solutions Festival at Juju’s Bar & Stage until end of January 2018

Bigger and better than the first year, Re:Solutions festival promises a stellar 2018 programme with yoga, dance and fitness classes from the likes of Yogahood, Fat Buddha Yoga and Disco Barre as well many others who will inspire, guide and lend life wisdom. ☮️ 🙏

From lunchtime yoga to swing and cuban dance classes with uplifting live music, the choice is plentiful. Working in collaboration with Urban Temple, this year’s event also sees offerings in unusual and innovative realms, such as Chroma light yoga with intense coloured light settings, Disco Barre and Pilates as well as dynamic Afrofusion, Soca and movement workshops lined up to deliver an all-embracing proposition.

Classes are complemented with speakers and wellness coaches including one of the most successful coaches in the UK, Hari Kalymnios, the author of the ground-breaking and thought-jarring book – ‘The Thought Gym’.

To ensure revellers are nourished from the inside out, the food offering has one mission – to fuel the mindful masses with vital minerals and conscious ingredients, keeping them energised all month long. With the Juju Bean Cafe at the helm, whatever the taste preference and whether the goal is to detox or retox, food will be fresh, tasty, and filled with plenty of goodness. Collaborators include Moju juices, Karma Cola and the vegan, refined-sugar and gluten free Cupcakes and Shhht for guilt-free indulgence.

In addition, there will be mindfulness and meditation workshops and gong baths, headlined by the brilliant Nick Stolerman and Siri Sadhana Kaur. What’s more, the festival’s music offering will work in synergy with the festival goers’ mood with bands and performers all coming together to deliver an awesome atmosphere. From Latino dance tunes to blissfully laid back melodies, to live bands and yoga classes led by Ministry Of Sound DJ’s, the roster of musical talent is set to be utterly impressive.
