The Handbook Meets Lightning Events

As we’re officially in party season (although all year round is party season in London) we sat down with Tom Foster of Lightning Events, a bespoke event production company, to find out what makes the best party, where they get their inspiration and how to run a business. What prompted you to set up Lightning in the first place? Lightning was set up by me and my business partner Al. We were 18 and thought it would be fun to team up and do a few parties for friends during university holidays. Here we are 10 years later and oh, […]

New McCain Roastaurant

If there is one place in the world that is mad about their roasts it’s England. I thought it was a British thing, but no, turns out the Scots aren’t too bothered, (not sure about Wales), but we in England are just potty about them. Every Sunday, it is a tradition for the family to sit down together and devour a Sunday roast. It is only when you visit other families however that you realise everyone has their own version and traditions, concerning how they like their roasts. There I was glibly thinking that everyone was sitting down to the […]

There’s a Baileys Pop Up Coming to Covent Garden

Baileys, it’s one of those drinks that we don’t really think about during the summer months. A bottle sits at the back of the cupboard, collecting dust, waiting until winter, waiting until the weather turns cold and it comes into its own, taking centre stage in our lives. Baileys with milk, Baileys on ice cream, Baileys in hot chocolate, you get the drift, come Christmas we’re drinking it all. Which is why, we don’t want to cause any alarm but there is a Baileys pop up coming to Covent Garden next week, the Baileys Treat Shop. They’re encouraging us to […]

A Nut-Cracking Christmas At Bluebird

Gather round and we’ll tell you a story, or, rather, the Bluebird will. E.T.A.Hoffman’s classic Christmas tale, The Nutcracker, comes to life at the Chelsea restaurant this festive season with various scenes from the book writ large across different parts of the venue. Enter the courtyard and immediately you’re immersed, with toys, trees and trinkets courtesey of partners Belvedere Vodka with the space teeming with pine garlands, lights, nutcracker soldiers (of course), roasting chestnuts and hanging stockings filled with gifts and candy canes. Visit the present wrapping shack (sunglassiers Taylor Morris’s hut, clearly using the down-season cleverly) and sip on […]

The Poisoned Garden: Immersive Rooftop Theatre

There’s something very British about curling up on a dark, cold winter’s night and solving a classic crime with the help of Sherlock or Miss Marple; there’s an amateur sleuth in all of us. Well now, we can see just how well our little grey cells work at The Gardening Society. As darkness falls, the rooftop transforms into an eerie 19th century garden, a garden which belongs to the Winter family who has fallen under a poisonous curse. An ethereal Victorian butler will welcome guests, handing out Elixir Punch and a Winter family tree and then it’s up to you […]

Choose Love This Christmas

There’s a new sort of Christmas pop-up shop coming to Soho this year. Created by creative collective Glimpse who is on a mission to use creativity for good, the pop-up, Choose Love, is asking to you buy as much as you want and leave with absolutely nothing. Why? Because all funds raised will go directly to UK charity, Help Refugees, who is supporting vital work across Europe and the Middle East. The products are split into three categories: arrival, shelter and the future. In arrival, you might find first aid kits and life jackets; in shelter, it will be the […]
