A Scandalous History

Illegitimate children, inventories and haunted photographs will be on the cards at The Wallace Collection’s new exhibition: Collecting History. The exhibition, which centres around the ways in which the Wallace family shaped the collection from the first Marquess to Sir Richard Wallace, may not have quite the drama of an episode of Eastenders, but there is some pretty scandalous history going on there that we simply cannot wait to find out more about. The exhibition which runs until 15th February, will feature archival material and works of art from the Hertford House Historical Collection. Expect to see prints, engravings, photographs […]

Happy Birthday to the Marquee Club

What do The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie all have in common? For those who are not rock geniuses, the answer is The Marquee Club, which throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s witnessed the birth and rise of these now major artists. And having given birth to such iconic British figures, it is only apt that on 1st December we celebrate their 50 years of existence, with an anniversary party at Floridita London. Whilst we doubt there will be any guitar smashing going on, the evening does promise exclusive performances from bands such as Ten Years […]

A D&G Christmas at Claridge’s

I don’t know about you, but in my family decorating the Christmas tree officially marks the beginning of the festive season. The same scenario happens each year, we sit down surrounded by Christmas baubles and my mother says, “Let’s try and make it spectacular this year!” Whilst the tinsel has disappeared and the knitted angels have been removed altogether, as much as I hate to admit it, our Christmas Tree still manages to look a lopsided mess- but it is our lopsided mess. Whilst family trees are often a masterpiece in themselves, it is the decorated trees scattered all over […]
