7 7 Issue 76 / 2015 GUESTLIST It's a KIng's Cross tIng: swImmIng pond The King's Cross Pond Club has opened to the public The 40 metre freshwater bathing pond in the heart of King's Cross is the first of its kind in the UK. The pond is all natural; wetland and water plants filter the water, keeping it clean. So that means no chemicals and no heating. Designed to bring together nature and leisure, the pond is actually an art installation entitled 'Of Soil and Water'. As Eva Pfannes of Ooze Architects explained, "the juxtaposition of something so natural in an urban environment was a very important idea for us. It is meant to look unpolished and to evolve as the seasons change." The pond is open Monday to Friday, 6am until dusk, and from 8am on weekends, with tickets ranging from £3.50 to £6.50. So if you've got a bit of time before your next train, you can splash in a pond rather than sit in Starbucks. Those good folks at Koppaberg are back with free festival fun for a whole five weeks. Running every Wednesday to Sunday until 12th July, Koppaberg Urban Forest hosts some of the finest music in town, and as well as a Koppaberg Bar, the pine forest pop-up will also be serving up eats from Buffalo Joe's, Le Bun, and Mama's Jerk. Katy B, Ms Dynamite, Submotion Orchestra, Norman Jay, XOV, DJ Yoda, Slow Club, Avec Sans, Trevor Nelson, Supa Dupa Fly, Hip Hop Karaoke, Chromeo, Cuban Brothers, Kyko and Citizens! are just some of the names on the music line-up, with more acts yet to be confirmed. #SkinsSexSongs Send songs to @skinscondoms for the chance to win free condoms! good Eggs: KoppaBErg UrBan ForEst Scandi summer fun comes to Hackney Wick and it's free!
