OktoberFest comes to London

We think that October should officially be renamed Oktober, in honour of annual German festival OktoberFest, which brings together a delicious mix of sausages and beer. Somehow the name makes it entirely acceptable – if not a requirement – to eat as many Würstel as we can handle in 4 days, surrounded by stein-drinking, Lederhosen-clad men and Dirndl-dressed women. We find it hard to believe that OktoberFest is only debuting in London this year. Before now, 6 million beer-mad fans have made the trip to Munich to enjoy the traditional festivities, first held in 1810 to celebrate the royal wedding […]

Courthouse Hotel Launches Cosy Soho Ski Terrace

Summer is sadly and obviously over and headlines about an Indian summer are cruel and misleading, so let’s just accept our fate and look forward to things that make winter our real favourite season anyway. The historical Courthouse Hotel is on the same brainwave as us as they have announced their new Soho Ski Terrace (formerly the Soho Sky Terrace) will launch in October in their summer rooftop space. The theme will be iconic retro ski chalets of the 1950’s filled with snuggly blankets and plush furniture to keep the winter chills at bay whilst soaking up the skyline view […]

Chambord’s Cocktail and Croquet Pop-Up

By now you must know that 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, if you didn’t you really need to get out and about in London/read more and whilst everyone always talks about Alice, the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter, sometimes the Queen of Hearts gets forgotten about. Yes ok she has anger issues and yes ok she is a bit of a threat to Alice, but she does love a good game of croquet – even if the balls are hedgehogs and the mallets are flamingos. So to celebrate the anniversary, Chambord are hosting they’re own […]

Dining in the Sky

Warning – if you don’t like heights, then stop reading now. Do like heights? Let’s continue, arguably the most extreme pop-up, London in the Sky is returning this month for a two week feast in the sky. And when we say in the sky we don’t just mean on a roof terrace, oh no, we mean suspended in the air a whopping 25 metres high. Taking place at South Bank, diners can go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Champagne Taittinger flights, with the menu created by top British chefs including Dan Doherty of Duck and Waffle, Mark Sargeant of Morden […]

Acoustic Sunday Circus

Think back to when you were 13 and wanted to go to the local circus with your mates, because that’s where all the cool kids were going. Your Mum probably told you to be careful and not to run away and join the circus as part of some insane motorbikes-over-people’s heads act. Well, here at The Handbook, we’re not exactly ones for listening to our mothers, so we suggest you lose all your inhibitions and join the fun of this modern day London circus! Acoustic Sunday has teamed up with Sunday Circus to bring you an absurd afternoon of fatuous […]

Barts’ 1920’s Pyjama Party

Everyone knows that the way to celebrate a Bank Holiday is to stay up really late on Sunday because there is no work on Monday – hurrah! And London’s best (read, worst) kept secret, Barts is celebrating with a super fancy 1920s pyjama party.  It’s time to dig out your best PJs, silk dressing gowns and velvet smoking jackets – old race t-shirts are not welcome and I’m afraid intimating Marilyn Monroe and her Chanel No. 5 outfit is also a no go. As with any sleepovers they’ll be midnight snacks and pillow fights, but rather than getting hyped up […]

Open Air Cinemas At Grosvenor Film Festival

We all know that there’s nothing better than cuddling up to the sofa and watching a film, right? Well, actually there is something better and that is enjoying a classic movie against a stunning outdoor backdrop.

Presented by The Nomad Cinema in association with Chestertons, The Grosvenor Film Festival is offering beautiful outdoor spaces in Mayfair & Belgravia for your viewing pleasure.
