The Do Good Festival: Love Not Landfill Are Returning To Angel Central With Another Incredible Pop-up

Love Not Landfill is a collaborative initiative that aims to combat textile waste and promote sustainable fashion practices. By raising awareness, encouraging conscious consumerism, and fostering creative solutions, Love Not Landfill is leading a transformative revolution in the fashion industry. A non-profit campaign founded by ReLondon, Love Not Landfill encourages fast-fashion fans to buy second-hand, swap, recycle and give to charity.

From 29th June to 2nd July, Love Not Landfill are celebrating the very best second hand clothing that London has to offer. Get ready to shop collections curated by some of Love Not Landfill’s favourite style savvy creators including Char Ellesse for Shelter Shops, Demi Colleen for Fara, Lina Mar for Cancer Research UK, and Nantida Intajak for HURR.

The fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to global pollution and waste. The rise of fast fashion has led to a throwaway culture, where clothes are mass-produced, quickly discarded, and end up in overflowing landfills. Love Not Landfill recognizes this pressing issue and seeks to challenge the status quo by encouraging individuals to rethink their fashion choices and embrace sustainable alternatives.

At the core of Love Not Landfill is the belief that every garment deserves a second chance. Instead of discarding clothes, the initiative promotes the principles of reuse, repurposing, and recycling. By extending the life cycle of garments, we can significantly reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry. One of the key initiatives of Love Not Landfill is the concept of clothing swaps. This provides a platform for people to exchange unwanted clothing items with others, giving them a chance to find new treasures while diverting clothes from landfills. Clothing swaps bring a sense of community, promote sustainable consumption, and offer an exciting and affordable way to refresh one’s wardrobe without contributing to the demand for new clothing.

·It raises our spirits by making our shared spaces more beautiful.

Puppy Yoga

The fun doesn’t stop there, from Friday through to Monday, you can experience the ultimate puppy experience! You will be joined by a litter of puppies who are all getting ready to venture off to their new homes. Each puppy yoga class will start off with puppy cuddles and individual photo opportunities! You will then carry on with some gentle yoga movements and breaks. The class will finish off with everyone on their backs lying down on their yoga mat with a puppy placed on their tummy for extra relaxation.

Puppy yoga is beneficial for the puppies as it allows them to socialise with new people in different environments, creating less separation anxiety when they officially go off to the new homes. From a wellness perspective, it is great for attendees too as it allows you to take a moment out of the day to unwind and relax from the everyday stresses of work and life.

Tickets are released every Thursday for the following weekend. Please check Puppy Yoga London’s website each week as they may release tickets at different times each week. Puppy Yoga London don’t release tickets further than one week in advance which has allowed all attendees to have a much better chance of getting tickets. To book a ticket for Puppy Yoga London’s upcoming sessions at Angel Central, click here.

Angel Central Magazine Winter Issue is here!


The latest issue of Angel Central Magazine is out now!


It’s that time of year again, and what a year it has been! We’ve gone from lockdown closures to grand reopenings, and seen Angel Central transformed with the completion of our refurbishment works back in March. July’s Summer Fête saw us throw the big party we had all been waiting for, thanking everyone for their efforts over two difficult years, and welcoming the local Islington community into a new space we can all call home.

Now we’re looking ahead to Christmas and the New Year beyond, with plenty to look forward to and shout about. Our Sustainable Market features a selection of London-based ethical and sustainable businesses, the best in local crafters and makers, all with their unique sustainable spin, and all available in one place at Angel Central.

Continuing our proudly-held sustainability mission, the centrepiece of this year’s Christmas decorations is our enchanted Community Forest throughout the plaza. In January each tree will be adopted and re-homed by a local Islington community group, proving each has a life beyond Christmas.

We’ve also partnered with Gaydio, the UK’s first LGBTQ+ FM radio service, and will feature as they bring the big tunes and bigger vibes throughout the festive season.

All that is the backdrop to our amazing choice of stores, and ever-growing food and dining lineup – adding up to an unmissable Christmas shopping experience. The only thing left to do is write that letter to Santa!

The Blockbuster Bond Bash

We’ve been expecting you, Mr Bond. Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as the enigmatic British super-spy has suffered from long delays, but those delays have done nothing to diminish the anticipation and expectation. Audiences are once again ready to dive into a world of shadowy plots, subterfuge, danger and dapper dinner suits.

No Time To Die is now showing at Vue Angel Central – the last chance to catch a glimpse of Craig’s Bond, and while we can’t promise another iconic steamy seaside scene, we can offer everything you need to experience a little of his trademark class and glamour for yourself. Here are four pieces to inspire your own Bond themed party, and celebrate the new movie’s release in a style that would make the secret agent proud. Remember to mix those drinks shaken not stirred, and if someone turns up with a white cat, question their seemingly good intentions.
