Here’s How to Get The Hottest Ticket of 2019

Unless you’ve been living under a metaphorical rock, you’ll know that the hottest ticket in town at the moment is the Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition at the V&A. You’ll also probably know that it is sold out. But we know how to get you into the exhibition, and it doesn’t involve dressing up as a V&A assistant.

Frozen The Musical Is Coming To London

Let it go? Well, when it comes to this news we simply can’t – because it’s so darn exciting. Frozen the musical is coming to London and we can already hear the patter of tiny feet making their way to the front row, kids screeching the tunes at the top of their lungs and parents wishing the movie had never, ever been invented… The musical is set to open in the West End in 2020 based on 2013’s very successful film, seeing kiddos in the back of cars swapping “are we there yet,” with LET IT GOOOO! March last year saw […]

We’ve Found A Dating App With An Actual Waiting List… This Is Why

The Inner Circle is a dating app we covered a while ago and which received some ‘creative’ feedback, so we decided to give it a go and test it out for ourselves. The results? It actually sort of works! The Inner Circle is taking the opposite approach to regular dating apps and trying to get you off your phone as soon as possible by using IRL tips like hotspots and travel features, and hosting events that people actively recommended to us. It is just a solidly good app with fewer random people. The Inner Circle is taking advantage of a screening process that […]

Lucha Libre, Mexico’s Craziest Sport, Is Coming To London!

It’s big, colourful, brash and violent and we love it. Mexico’s favourite sport, Lucha Libre, scores so highly on the crazy scale that Donald Trump looks like Stephen Hawking and its closest living relative, WWE, might as well be tiddlywinks. And best of all, it’s coming here. The Roundhouse will be hosting the professional wrestling phenomenon for one day only this May, and we’re expecting it to be messy, chaotic, bizarre and so much fun. Originating in the early 20th century, Lucha Libre has morphed into something truly unique, wrestling that’s characterised by colourful masks, outrageous costumes, acrobatic and high flying manoeuvres […]
