A Micro Pig Pop-up Is Coming to a City Near You

| © Tiny Tails

Grab a box of tissues, because this is about to get really emotional.

Last week, we mentioned that a super cute pug cafe was coming to London. Now, we’ve got even better news: Micro piggies, (those tiny cute pink things that make even the darkest souls cry with joy) will be hanging out at the Floating Pocket Park in Merchant Square this month for a free lunchtime picnic called ‘Tiny Tails!’

As part of the Square’s ‘Summer of Fun’ event series, Londoners and visitors to the British capital will be given the chance to cuddle, and even take a selfie or two (the absolute golden snitch of the Instagram feed) with the lovable little things. Oh, and there will be bunnies, too. As in actual furry Peter Rabbits. We’re finished.

The organisers behind the concept hope that the pop-up’s snorting creatures will help London folk combat all their work-related stress, and as a result, boost their productivity – as if they don’t do enough already, but hey, it’s better than staying in the office for your lunch break. Yes. Yes, it is.

Hungry thinking about sausage rolls? KuPP, M&S Café and Lockhouse will be selling grub to eat al fresco in the park. Just don’t eat any pork. No, really, you could be eating one of the little piggies’ parents. Sad times.

Tiny Tails will take place at the Floating Pocket Park, Merchant Square from 12pm–2pm on Thursday, July 27.
