This weekend (11-13 December) throws up a number of weird and wonderful experiences, including a food-focused screening of Red Bull Media House's latest film and Theme Traders' Breaking Mad event.

Think Ink Pines with Kraken Rum

Rum brand Kraken Black Spiced is subverting the usual Christmas activation with its black Christmas tree pop-up shop, Think Ink Pines. The shop sells what it claims are the world’s first real black trees, alongside black mistletoe, wreaths, holly and Poinsettia.

A festive Kraken Black Spiced Rum Bar can be found nestled within the trees.
