The Tempest

Last night, my mum and I went to see Shapespeare's The Tempest, at The Barbican, in London. I'm going to put the synopsis from the Royal Shakespeare Company next, because I think it'll be a bit better than mine: "On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies... Continue Reading →

Yank! A WWII Love Story

Yesterday my sister and I headed off to Charing Cross theatre, a quaint little theatre, hidden under the arches near Charing Cross Station. I had a pair of tickets to see Yank!, thanks to being a Time Out Tastemaker. All I knew about the show, was that it was about gay soldiers during WWII. I... Continue Reading →


I've been waiting for this film to come out for well over a year - the trailers have always looked fantastic, and the storyline was bound to be gripping. The film tells the story of the evacuation of Dunkirk, whilst under fire from Nazi war planes. Tom Hardy plays a British pilot, trying to down... Continue Reading →

We turned up, and mum realised she had visited before (thank god she didn't think it was... Continue Reading →

Even though we won the first leg 1-0, thanks to a sublime Drogba effort, as the score stood, we were out. But then, just before... Continue Reading →

Ugly Dumpling

Last night I had the pleasure of going to a pre-opening night at Ugly Dumpling - a brand new (you guessed it!) dumpling place, just off Carnaby St. We went as a group of Time Out Tastemakers - a group of influencers who get to visit loads of great places, in return for a review....

Briefs: Close Encounters

I was lucky enough to get a couple of tickets to see Briefs: Close Encounters, at the Underbelly on the Southbank. I've been to the Underbelly quite a few times, and seen a number of shows, which have never disappointed. I googled the show before, to see what I'd let myself in for, and saw... Continue Reading →
