Porridge & Knowledge 

Nestled in a quiet enclave in the heart of East London, Porridge & Knowledge is the Saturday morning Campfire Club that brings inspiring speakers and spirited musicians to your breakfast table.

Porridge & Knowledge offers a social environment for the local community, a place where old and young can congregate, learn, and breakfast side-by-side. Twice a month we’ll be joined by a host of world-shaping guests, ready to share their tales of ancient journeys, musical crusades, and groups and individuals that fearlessly chose to paddle against the flow.

With hungry minds and hungry ears come hungry bellies, so our Nest Collective team will be on hand to fuel your experience, dishing up a bottomless pot of exciting oaty inventions. With a smorgasbord of savoury and sweet toppings available, Porridge & Knowledge is the perfect way to shake off the week’s stresses. As if that’s not enough to kick-start your Saturday, we’ll also be laying on unlimited coffees and teas to boot. ‘Cause we’re nice like that.

Porridge & Knowledge kicks off on Saturday 7th October, and will continue into the autumn. Join us for family-friendly mornings packed with stories, ideas, and songs: a place for locals to gather, relax, and discover.
