We Can’t Handel How Amazing These Live Music Venues Are…

Stop! You’re under a rest… Music. It makes the word a much funkier place and life without it, well, it would b flat… OK, sorry. Serious now! Music is the food of love and we certainly want it to play on, so we’ve taken a look at the London bars and restaurants where playing on is a popular pastime. From Park Chinois and its Chinese food and table theatrics, to the Latin American rhythm of the Leaf & Cane, here’s where to shake your tail feather (and listen to something other than pop…)   Ninety One Living Room In a […]

20 Stunning Shows To See This LFW

It’s that time of year again. The city streets will soon swooping with bustling fashion designers rushing between shows, jet lagged models queuing for their make up and dress fittings, and fashionistas dashing from one side of the city to the other, trying to squish in as many catwalks and after-parties as possible over five days. That’s right, London Fashion Week returns 13th – 17th September bringing with it all the new frills, tassels and shamelessly bizarre trends that’ll be in next season. The main hub of action on the official schedule will take place at The Strand in London, […]

How Do You Fancy The Sound Of A Neon Naked Life Drawing Class?

I feel like I start the majority of my articles here saying “well, I’ve seen it all now…” but honestly after this I think I might’ve! Neon naked life drawings are coming to London, doing just what they say on the tin. Life drawing is definitely something we all want to have a whack at but we’re too scared of getting out our unmentionables! But, this neon malarky totally gives you an excuse to bare all, because you’ll be covered in paint (ish)! So, what’s all the fuss about? Well, the Queen of Hoxton has decided to spice things up […]

Sea For Yourself! The London Aquarium Opening By Night This Autumn

Whale, whale, whale, what do we have here? Sorry. Where was I? Ah, yes. London’s SEA LIFE is groovin’ things up for autumn, replacing boring old nights in eating soup with old episodes of Midsummer Murders playing in the background (gosh, that sounds awful), with the opportunity to dip beneath the surface, as it were. Aquariums can be a total mare, right? Often, they’re littered with hoards of kids on school trips, all pressing their faces up against the glass… poor fish. But, the SEA LIFE lates will be adult-only, hurrah, and if you can think of anything better than […]

Finally! It’s Confirmed: The New 007 Is A Woman

Wake-up guys! It’s been announced that the new 007 is a woman! Lashana Lynch will be taking on the infamous codename in the next, as yet untitled, Bond film. The successful actor, star of Captain Marvel and Bulletproof, will be stepping into size 10 brogues, previously occupied by the likes of Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pearce Brosnan and that other guy that everyone always forgets. It’s on the tip of my tongue… George Lazenby! Except, trigger alert (geddit?), it’s not quite true. According to the Daily Mail, who reportedly have a spy in the Bond camp, an opening […]
