  designjunction celebrates King’s Cross Creative Quarter  
 
designjunction, scheduled from September 21 to 24, is delighted to present King’s Cross Creative Quarter (KXCQ), a celebration of cultural, culinary and creative activities during the London Design Festival (LDF).


Now in its second year, KXCQ brings together a vibrant collection of pop-up design events, exhibitions and stunning architectural installations as well as all the best places to eat, drink, shop and stay at King’s Cross during the LDF.


Will Sorrell, Event Director of designjunction added, “Following the success of the King’s Cross Creative Quarter during last year’s show, we’re thrilled that the celebration returns this September, bringing together visitors from all over the globe. With the plethora of inspiring design, architecture, culinary delights and retail hot spots that are on offer it’s a great location to be, and even better that it’s all situated within just a one-mile radius of King’s Cross.”


KXCQ offers something for everyone from design enthusiasts to those on a family day out, with a host of special events for visitors to enjoy. Taking place over four days in tandem with designjunction, the KXCQ is supported by King’s Cross Development and the Wellcome Collection.



Highlights of the KXCQ include:


DESIGN AND CULTURE


Since its recent regeneration, King’s Cross has firmly established itself as London’s premier design hub. KXCQ showcases an exciting array of exhibitions, installations and events to appeal to all those with an interest in design.


ARCHITECTURE


King’s Cross has recently been transformed as one of the largest and most exciting regeneration projects in London. The 67-acre site is home to a lively blend of historic architectural gems and exciting contemporary architecture.


SHOPPING


King’s Cross is a fast-growing shopping destination for both independent boutique brands and respected labels. These will soon be supplemented by further retail at Coal Drops Yard, near Granary Square.


FOOD AND DRINK


KXCQ is a treat for the tastebuds as well as the eyes, from elegant fine dining to the latest street food trends and pop-ups.


HOTELS


Travellers are spoilt for choice with design-led hotels in King’s Cross. Located close to both St Pancras International and the King’s Cross and St Pancras domestic railway stations, the King’s Cross district is the ideal place to stay whilst visiting London from the Continent or elsewhere in the UK.
