We are starting these Lunch clubs with DDC in a number of venues. We know you will ask yourself what is a lunch market? Well, after loads of research, we’ve found out that this concept is really taking off. Basically these markets and lunch clubs are popping up all over London and other cities and they present opportunities for city workers to experience street food and creative markets. So we thought why not, as we have all the elements long-side DDC. So we are kicking these off in Coventry in a venue that as 17K footfall daily. DAM is going small on these for a while with 6 stalls and we would love to have some live art happening, so if your interested in going live, give us a shout.
