Venture into the Foyer!
The new destination to be seen in at the Mile End Campus will open on Monday 4 February. The 'Foyer' within the refurbished People's Palace is a vibrant and contemporary coffee shop offering a variety of tasty snacks to eat in or take away. The Foyer's aim is to become a beacon for coffee lovers to come and chat, meet up or work in, offering genuine service and an inviting atmosphere over a cup of expertly roasted and brewed Eros Fairtrade coffee or if you prefer tea, Fairtrade London Tea Company offerings.
Alongside tea and coffee, the Foyer will be offering delicious cakes, brownies, muffins, popcorn, pretzels and a selection of 'retro' sweets - Liquorice Allsorts, Cola Cubes, Jelly Babies, Rhubarb and Custards, Dolly Mixtures and Gummy Bears amongst others.
The People’s Palace, where the Foyer is based, is celebrating its refurbishment with a series of events throughout February and March. Find out more about the events and how to register: www.qmul.ac.uk/peoplespalace/index

The Curve launches new food initiatives
The Curve is proud to launch two exciting new initiatives for 2013 – monthly themed events and a campaign to encourage you to eat more seasonal food with menus changing with the seasons.
The monthly themed event in February asks you whether you are ‘naughty or nice’ depending upon what style of pancakes you prefer in celebration of Shrove Tuesday on 12 February.
The Curve is also launching a campaign to encourage customers to eat more seasonal vegetables with special monthly menus. February sees purple spouting broccoli and parsnip in season, and each month recipe cards are available for guests to take away and try their hand at producing a dish based on these seasonal ingredients.
