Chase The Moon! Make Autumn Your Breakthrough Season as a First-Time 5k or 10k London Jogger
Posted in: Events & Festivals, Features, Sports & Fitness

For most hesitant first-time joggers and keep-fit wannabes, autumn is when they are looking forward to the comforts of the countdown to the festive season and the even greater comfort of setting that New Year’s keep fit resolution. Yes, that same resolution they ditch two weeks into January. The best way to avoid that recurring […]

Leonardo: Experience a Masterpiece [Art review]
Posted in: Galleries & Museums, Reviews, Shows & Exhibitions

It’s a remarkable legacy to have completed only 15 paintings (known to be in existence) yet still be recognised as one of the greatest artists in history. This extraordinary polymath has produced work that survives today as undoubted cultural icons and his early working life in Milan provided the apprenticeship for much of these works […]

  • Michele Terry as Hotspur, Henry IV
    Henry IV, Part 1 (Theatre)
    Posted in: Drama & Theatre, Reviews

    Prince Harry hanging out in taverns with his rowdy mates, much to the disappointment of his father who prefers behaviour more becoming of a prince. The plot sounds vaguely familiar but with our own Prince Harry now happily wed and out of the clubs, rewind 600 years to the years preceding the Battle of Agincourt […]

  • The Murdér Express (Theatre)
    Posted in: Bars & Clubs, Drama & Theatre, Food & Dining, Reviews

    A murder-mystery on the Murdér Express steam train departing from a reconstructed train station at the Pedley Street Arches, Tower Hamlets. Is it theatre, is it a pop-up restaurant? Well, few before have ‘popped up’ with the lavish attention to detail and period grandeur of this immersive dining experience presented by award-winning creative collective Funicular. […]

    The Theatre of Quantum Physics
    Posted in: Drama & Theatre, Highlights

    JUDGING by the physics-themed theatre productions cropping up in autumn, it’s going to be a pretty cerebral November in both the theatre Fringe and the West End. And even if you don’t know your Newton’s from your Einsteins, it will hopefully prove an entertaining challenge to get your head round quantum physics on the London […]

  • Adam & Eve…and Steve (Musical)
    Posted in: Drama & Theatre, Reviews

    It’s just as well in previous incarnations the Kings Head Theatre, the first pub theatre since Shakespeare’s day, was once used as a boxing ring because the near fisticuffs that follow when Adam is being fought over by Eve and his camp ‘best friend forever’ Steve, might have called for a return to the pugilistic […]

  • The Importance of Being Earnest (Theatre)
    Posted in: Drama & Theatre, Reviews

    This Oscar Wilde play was originally titled The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy For Serious People. Wilde added the extra as if concerned we might miss the point. And it’s heartening how the comedy elements have passed the test of time, perhaps because of ‘serious’ people forever finding new meaning in the once […]

  • Doctor Faustus (Theatre)
    Posted in: Drama & Theatre, Reviews

    Most are familiar with Christopher Marlowe’s play and the seven deadly sins which haunt Doctor Faustus in this Elizabethan tragedy. Few may be aware that Faustus is described in the traditional Chorus as being from ‘base stock’ yet ambitious enough to become a physician and professor of divinity at Wittenberg University. Even then, his undeniable […]
