Clerkenwell, London: an urban centre with more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else in the world. It’s also home to our head office - the hub for our marketing, design and tech teams - and where a large chunk of our trend-thinking takes place.

So it’s no surprise that that we’ll be participating at this year’s edition of the Clerkenwell Design Week mini-festival (24-26 May) during which the neighbourhood’s numerous design studios, workshops and creative hubs throw open their doors to celebrate creativity and design. Think street festivals, themed talks and discussions, behind-the-scenes tours of creative studios and interactive workshops.

And this year, we’re excited to announce that we’re hosting two exclusive mini-events of our own as part of the wider programme. Want to attend? Register here.

Here’s what we’ve got lined up:
