Forget Dry January, crash diets and other depressing January no-nos for a fresh start that will last all of one day. Why not focus on doing new things, learning new skills and trying new foods with Pop Brixton’s Try January. Plus, start as you mean to go on by entering our competition for a meal for two at Vietbox below…

Pop 2

Bold, global flavours at Kricket and Koi Ramen

Try Lunch

Push yourself out of your foodie comfort zone and feast on flavours from around the world. From Vietbox’s spicy Vietnamese salads and fresh tacos and quesadillas from Maria Sabina, to delicious ramen from Koi Ramen or an indulgent treat from Miss P’s BBQ, there’s plenty on offer.


Try Cooking

Want to get more active in the kitchen? Get inspired and become a master of sushi with Ron Laity, Kyonocha’s head chef. This masterclass will give you an introduction to the culture and history of sushi, as well as guided steps through making sushi, where you’ll get to make and enjoy your own bites.

Kyonocha Sushi Making Workshop. Wednesday 27 January | 6pm – 7.30pm
Only £10. For more info, click here.

Try Growing

Get green and learn how to grow your own salad. All you need is a windowsill, some seeds and patience to nurture and grow your own plants for fresh ingredients.
Pop Farm Winter Salads Growing Workshop

Saturday 23 January | 1pm – 3pm | Saturday 30 January | 1pm – 2.30pm | Free.

Try Discobarre/Cinema/Bargain Hunting

Forget creating a jogging playlist to get you in the mood (or not) and get you out in the cold… Get into shape with alternative classes in the form of Capoeira or Pilates. Drop by Pop Brixton on 25 January for Discobarre – a new concept combining ballet-based barre moves with a disco and house music soundtrack. And there’s more with cinema screenings and bargain hunting for fashion and accessories.
