The world is always crying out for new music, new talent and fresh faces on the music scene.

The evenings will be held on the third Thursday of every month producing an eclectic mix of new acts and established artists, and the very first of these events is […]

Fancy A Michelin Star Lunch For Just £6?

It’s not unknown to drop a good few hundred pounds on a half-decent dinner from a Michelin starred chef. Maybe worth saving for a special occasion, an anniversary or to celebrate a work promotion perhaps, but hardly an everyday occurrence. Unless you head to KERB at King’s Cross, where London’s cheapest Michelin Star lunch is being served daily at the unusually usurious price of £6 a pop. Yes, £6. Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Tourism Board have flown Hawker Chan, Head Chef at legendary Asian street food stall Chan Hong Men, over to pop up here for three days only […]

DEFINE.London: Fitzrovia’s New Fitness Studio

This weekend sees the launch of DEFINE.London’s Fitzrovia studio. It’s mission? To help sculpt a stronger, healthier and more inspired version of you. Located on Great Portland Street, the studio couldn’t be further from the garishly coloured gyms, with worn mats and shouty slogans on the walls. Instead it’s fresh, light tranquil and calm, providing the ideal place to work out in peace. We’re hoping it also means you won’t have the weightlifters who grunt so loudly that you’re either put off or you’re having to suppress your laughter as you watch them from your bike. Just because the space […]

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 […]
