Emeli Sandé, Professor Green and Gabrielle Aplin to Perform at a Free Gig

At his final public speech, Nelson Mandela called for this generation to bring an end to extreme poverty, something that luckily most of us in England will never be able to comprehend but an all too real experience for millions around the world. Continuing his work, Global Citizen, the international advocacy organisation is hosting a free ticketed arts and activism event at the O2 Academy Brixton in the year that he would have been a hundred. Today, they have announced that Emeli Sandé, Professor Green, Naughty Boy, Gabrielle Aplin, Luisa Omielan and Hussain Manawer will all be performing at the […]

We Review: Gin And Jazz At The Waldorf Hilton

What: Delicious gins, scrummy canapés and… all that Jazz. New: The Waldorf Hilton has been a symbol of British heritage set in the heart of Covent Garden since the 1900’s. So no, we couldn’t say it was new. The Gin and Jazz evenings, however, are fresh on the scene. Where: The evening itself happens in the Good Godfrey’s bar and lounge, which is directly to your right as you enter through the main doors. Fint it at The Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, WC2B 4DD, www.hilton.com. The Look: Long cushioned bench-seats stretch along two sides of the room and individual tables are set up […]

Richmond Hotel Scoops Star Chef

The Petersham Hotel really must be the best London hotel to not really be in London in. With a commanding position over the river Thames this grand yet intimate gem has much to recommend it, an enviable location, gorgeous interiors and, now, Head Chef Jean-Didier Gouges. Gouges has taken the helm after heading up the team at Rhubarb’s flagship restaurant in the Royal Albert Hall and is already transforming the menu at The Petersham’s fine-dining restaurant into something both unique and special. Setting out in his native Mauritius, Gouges was trained in classic French techniques and it’s this culinary ‘bilingualness’ and understanding […]

Realising the benefits of a plant-based diet but missing the grilled flavours of Turkish foods, vegan Cem Yildiz, joined forces with friend, Rojdan Gul, whose uncle had been making cult vegan kebabs in Germany for years. The result was What the Pitta and a pop-up in 2016 at The Pump in Shoreditch. The kebabs are made […]
