Trendy Shoreditch venue, the Queen of Hoxton, is recreating childhood summers with a series of unique workshops and events.
The Rooftop Summer Club will take place until August, transforming the already iconic outdoor space into a verdant oasis of crafts and activities with a twist.
Saturday’s shenanigans include Fat Buddha Yoga and the Tape Measure Challenge, a concept based on pulling a tape measure as high in the air as it can go before it buckles.
The stretcher of the longest tape holds a prestige described as being akin to competing in the Olympics.
The following day features an education in the myriad uses of a playground hoola hoop. Future events include a course in drawing heads and bodies, a workshop on garnishing food appropriately and the “Jerk Off” of 2014.

Things are sure to heat up as each “jerker” brings individual marinades, herbs and spices to impress the crowds.
