Produce UK stages 'You Get What You're Given' exhibition

The line-up of artists includes Catherine Borowski, founder and managing director of agency Produce UK, as well as Lee Baker and Olivia Hegarty. The artists will illustrate subjects such as their own personal lives and interpretations of existence, Japanese philosphy and movement and migration. 

Where: Hoxton Arches, London

When: 17 - 20 November

Ford's 'Driving Skills for Life' training session

Car brand Ford is bringing its 'Driving Skills for Life' training session back to Excel London. Research has shown that car accidents are the leading cause of death amongst young people, and Ford has partnered with road safety organisations such as Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, Brake and AA Drive Tech to help combat the issue. The training session will cover hazard recognition, vehicle handling, speed/space management, distraction and cyclist awareness and the dangers of drink and drug driving and taking selfies at the wheel. A survey commissioned by Ford in 2014 showed that one in four young drivers had taken a selfie at the wheel.

Where: ExCel London

When: 18-20 November 

Cocktail pop-ups by Smith & Sinclair

Cocktail confectionary brand Smith & Sinclair is staging not just one, but two cocktail pop-ups in separate locations this weekend. The brand, and its innovative take on cocktails, can be discovered at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent, as well as The Sanderson Hotel in central London. 'The Flavour Room' in Bluewater shopping centre will offer edible alcoholic cocktail pastilles, cocktail sherbet wall, edible perfumes, confectionary ‘salt and pepper’ shakers and alcoholic dib dabs. The pop-up in The Sanderson Hotel aims to transport guests to a world 'where anything is possible' by providing opportunities to ‘play’ with cocktails, ‘eat your drink’ and experience a drinking adventure. Another version of the brand's shop, 'The Flavour Room', will also be located at The Sanderson Hotel.

Where: The Sanderson Hotel, London / Bluewater shopping centre, Kent

When: Bluewater: 17 November - 2 January. The Sanderson: 18 November - 24 December
