Westfield Gets an Open Air Cinema for Summer

The general election might be heating up (remember to vote, everyone!) but there is still one question which has been debated amongst Londoners for years. Which is better; East or West? Westfield seems to have found mutual ground when it comes to choosing which side of London to hang out this summer. This June, the Food Truck Festival will be pulling up at both the White City (1st – 4th June) and Stratford (22nd – 25th June) shopping centres as part of the highly anticipated London Food Month. The four day long events will showcase the best food served on […]

London’s Most Fashionable New Afternoon Tea

Have you cracked your Spring/Summer 2017 wardrobe yet? Us neither. In fact, we could barely even decide what to wear today. One thing we do know for sure though, is that fashion in edible form is right up our street. Luxury London hotel, The Berkeley last year celebrated a decade of their iconic fashionista afternoon tea, keeping it suitably up to date with a shake up every six months. If they didn’t we’d still all be eating babydoll dresses and cowboy boots (see Sienna Miller circa 2006)… The hotel’s pastry chef, Mourad Khiat, has turned to some of the most influential fashion designers in […]

Kensington’s Rooftop Proms

Summer in London is all about getting to as many rooftops as possible – everyone knows that and the most tranquil is, of course, The Roof Gardens in Kensington. They’ve got flamingos, ducks, a beautiful courtyard, so many plants and now classical music. On certain Wednesdays in May and August they’ll have performances from the Royal College of Music who are returning for their fourth year. Each ticket includes a cocktail and you’ll also be able to buy the likes of risotto, gourmet burgers and strawberries and cream. Being on a rooftop doesn’t have to always be about panoramic Instagram […]

London’s Favourite Rooftop Cinema is Back for Summer

Summer is on its way, shout it from the rooftops! Well, four rooftops in particular: the Bussey Building (Peckham), Roof East (Statford) The Queen of Hoxton (Shoreditch) and Kensington Roof Gardens, who have just been announced as participating venues for the summer 2017 series of Rooftop Film Club. As we trade our underground cinemas for the sky-high, al fresco variety, some things never change – predominantly boxes of popcorn and an action-packed programme of cult classics and recent releases. It’s lights, camera, action (literally) on Thursday 4th May as The Rooftop Film Club presses play on films featuring iconic rooftop […]

Treasure Hunt at The British Museum

Are you a culturally curious Londoner tired of the museum crowds? Or do you get museum legs (as we like to call it) at the thought of hours spent trudging round observing millions of artefacts?

Sister Act Goes Live and Immersive

When we say ‘singing nuns’, can you really think of anything but the iconic Sister Mary Clarence from the 90s classic Sister Act? We didn’t think so. One of our favourites, the hit 1992 film is set to get a 2017 revival as Amacoast Cinema host the Sister Act Live Choir. Set in the historic Central Hall Westminster, film fans will be treated to an immersive cinema experience, as the Sister Act Live Choir boasts a choir of over thirty gospel singers and full band, belting out songs from the soundtrack. Bringing together diverse groups of people, founder Dele Aro hopes to […]

Street Food, Live Music and Movie Marathons in Tooting

We all love a pop-up, especially one that involves food and/or drink, so when we hear of multiple pop-ups under one roof, we’re sold. Tooting Pop Ups is brainchild of brothers, Al and Nick Heathcote, of Skeleton Entertainment who founded things like Dalston’s tapas and cocktail bar, La Cabina – basically, they know what it takes to have a good night out. Street food is of course playing a key part (see, we told you they know a good time), with two residencies taking place at a time for up to six months. Tasked with kicking things off is Every Juan […]

Workout Woes? Be:Fit London is back!

Finding it hard to get motivated, stay on track, or even be bothered to workout? You aren’t alone. Apparently, only one in five women in the UK do enough exercise to stay fit and healthy. This is due to a number of reasons, from continued self-esteem issues, to a lack of non-competitive environments for women to exercise in. Whilst many of us talk about changing, it’s time to actually do something about it. That’s where Be: FIT festival comes in. Aiming to break down these limitations, the festival creates a space for women to come together in solidarity; to support and […]

London Fashion Week Festival: The Most Stylish Event of the Year

New season, new wardrobe. Well, the temperatures may still be in the single figures but that doesn’t stop us from planning ahead, Pinning our favourite summer looks and mentally packing for our trip to Croatia we booked on payday. Fashion week fever is about to sweep over London; the streets of Soho will come alive with bloggers, editors and models, there to be seen in covetable street style looks… and some outfits slightly more questionable. Like any fashionista worth their salt, London Fashion Weekend – aka the most stylish event of the year – has had a bit of a […]

Selfridges’ Rooftop Restaurant Gets Wasted

The eternally popular Selfridges rooftop has just announced an innovative new partnership which is sure to keep demand as high as ever and will see it transformed into a rooftop garden exhibition. Turning to a trio of leading restauranteurs from across the pond, Selfridges are turning their attention to a hugely understated area of the restaurant industry; food waste. With 210,000 tonnes of food thrown away annually by British restaurants, there’s a whole lot more that needs to be done than just whacking a fish pie on the specials menu the day after that pan-fried sea bass didn’t quite sell […]
