Metronome to Host Coffee Festival this October Half Term

Metronome to Host Coffee Festival this October Half Term

Metronome, the new coffee and events space in Morden, brings joy to the half-term break with a week of events all centred around coffee.

The fun begins early each day with free tastings from 07:00 and continues with ticketed events into the evenings. During the day there will be competitions, interactive displays, a gallery and children’s creative art and music workshops. In the evening, latte art classes, live music, a VIP event and even a coffee martini cocktail night. Time & Leisure are proud to be Media Partner of this event championing community, culture, family and great coffee.


Tickets for Metronome Coffee Festival October 2022


The programme, just released, is set to sell out fast as there is limited capacity in their Crown Lane Morden premises. Director of Metronome, John Merriman said “After launching the business mid-pandemic, our dreams of holding this kind of event have been repeatedly thwarted, so we’re delighted to finally have a full programme to bring to Merton”. Co-director and host of the evening events Lil Iontcheva added. “It’s time for some happiness and we can’t wait to welcome new faces”.

The festival runs from 24th to the 29th October. All events are at Metronome, 8 Crown Lane Morden (opposite the civic centre). Events and tickets are available on the Metronome website: or pop into the coffee shop and speak with the team.
