WE

 

♥ That’s London, baby ♥

1. London is about to get more magical than ever – the Lumière Festival will bring art installations to the centre but do check out Canary Wharf’s Winter Lights too. All free!

2. It’s such a mild winter the snowdrops are already out! Go to the Chelsea Physic Garden this Saturday to see them.

3. Click here to learn Selfridges’ little secrets.

4. Say bye to Bowie – there are so many flowers already in front of the Brixton mural! If you fancy retracing his steps, here are 13 London places that mattered in his life and 8 events celebrating his talent.

5. Go wassailing on Saturday night. The Brunel Museum’s rooftop garden got a Tolkien revamp and there will be a camp fire, cider and Irish stew, tales, fiddle and accordion.

 

♥ Art and culture ♥

1. Have a look at Champagne life, Saatchi’s exhibition entirely focused on female artists. Also paying tribute to women’s talents, Le Cirque du Soleil is performing their new show Amaluna at The Royal Festival Hall.

2. Let Vertical, a dance/ice-skating show, wow you at the Somerset House.

3. Annie Leibovitz is presenting her latest portraits – Women – at the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station.

4. Have a look at the contemporary pieces at the Marian Goodman Gallery – sculpture as an ‘enemy of amnesia’.

5. JW3 is organising The festival of the Mind – you’ll learn about Freud, bibliotherapy, dance, art, epitaphs…

 

♥ Yum ♥

1.  Love sushi restaurants with a conveyor belt? Shuang Shuang has just opened its doors – same concept but with hotpot dishes!

2. Cauliflower is now a London-trendy food. But ah, these signature dishes certainly do look good.

3. Up for a cocktail? Try Boca Hackney – they serve theirs on ice spheres revealing seaweed, pink peppercorn as they melt…

4. Fancy a more 1920s atmosphere? Try The Gibson. Gorgeous place.

5. Want a twist on your Sunday Roast? Enjoy it at La Chapelle, a church turned into a restaurant by the Galvin Brothers.

 

♥ 5 ideas to make your little ones smile ♥

1. Nature lovers will love Grass, a show at the Unicorn Theatre for the little ones, presenting what happens under the lawn.

2. Need a good laugh? Go and see Peter Pan goes wrong, a play where the actors have to battle against technical hitches, flying mishaps and cast disputes. Brilliantly done.

3. Go see Tipping Point at King’s Cross, a show between theatre play and circus where poles are balanced on fingertips, swung from, lashed, and walked along to become forests, crossroads and pendulums.

4. Marvel at the 2,000 models on display at the London Model Engineering Exhibition: steam locomotives, trucks, boats, planes, helicopters and robots.

5. The Prince Charles Cinema screens classic Disney movies every Sunday morning. This week? Dumbo.
