It’s not every day that some of Hollywood’s biggest stars roll up their sleeves behind the coffee machine.
Now, we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with our local barista but if we get the chance to have our cup of Joe handed over by the brilliant Tiffany Haddish or Chris Pratt, you can bet your bottom dollar that we’re taking it.
On the 1 and 2 of February the South Bank in London will be playing host to a brand new cafe built entirely from Lego bricks, based on the The Coffee Chain café featured in the Lego Movie films.
To celebrate the film’s sequel, The Lego Movie 2 which stars both Pratt and Haddish, the new coffee spot will be giving out free coffee with the first few being served by none other than the voices of the leading characters.
Pratt, who plays Rex Dangervest and Hadish who plays Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi, will be gracing the South Bank on the 1 February from 9am to meet Lego Movie and coffee fans to not only promote the film, but do some good too.
You see, although the coffee is technically free the event is in partnership with UNICEF UK, the children’s charity devoted to helping children in danger around the world.
All those who attend and swipe a caffeine hit from the hands of these big names will be encouraged to donate something to the charity, and do their bit in helping young people living without food, water or safety.
It’s not exactly clear how long Haddish and Pratt will be sticking around so we suggest getting down there earlier rather than later, because as we say, it’s not everyday that you get the chance to have a chat with Hollywood heavyweights while enjoying your morning brew. And what a good story to tell your colleagues when you make it to your desk, eh?
Check out the The Coffee Chain on February 1 and 2 from 10-6 and 10-5 at Observation Point, South Bank, 58–72 Upper Ground, London, SE1 9LT.
