Celebrate the Season of the Witch at Queen of Hoxton.

Looking for something unique and exciting to do in London as autumn gets a grip on the capital? I might have just the thing for you - especially if you enjoy good food and hot and cold cocktails.

From October 24th, Queen of Hoxton’s Shoreditch rooftop will be going green. Climb the yellow brick road up to the cosy rooftop WigWam where you’ll find a bewitching green den. 

Queen of Hoxton Wizard of Oz themed events

Feast on hearty Kansas style food before continuing along the golden path to the Emerald Garden. Here you’ll find fire pits to toast marshmallows around, and walls glistening with Emerald jewels, as well as a hidden bar serving up hot and cold green cocktail delights. 

There will be a series of immersive events to entertain, inspire and excite you through the long winter nights as the season of the witch is celebrated in style at Queen of Hoxton. 

Join the coven and enrol for witch academy classes. Learn Pxssy magic and how to cast spells, gather around blazing firepits with a mulled wine to hear feminist witch storytelling and shop for everything from sage smudging sticks to Yoni wands at the winter witch craft market in the WigWam.  

Queen of Hoxton will also be hosting green eco-events such as a big green clothes swap and pickling workshops to make Christmas gifts from kitchen scraps. Here's a flavour of just some of the upcoming events:
