Crazy In Love @ Brixton Village (but no Beyoncé…)

Another weekend, another Spacemakers event at Brixton Village. Last Saturday was Culture Club, this Saturday was – wait for it – love-themed. Cornercopia launched the first of their Saturday lunches with a Valentine’s meal (it looked delicious, although I didn’t have the chance to try it), huge hearts were hanging in shop windows, pink cupcakes were being sold outside the sweet shop and – if you really, really wanted to – you could even sign up for speed dating. Here’s a mini photo tour of Brixton Village this weekend:
