♥ That’s London, baby ♥

1. The Orchids Festival returns to Kew Gardens, inspired by India this year. Not to be missed – see my pictures from last year to get an idea.

2. Indulge in a 1920ies party at The Vaults this Saturday, dedicated to The Great Gatsby. With jazz, cabaret and cocktails, of course.

3. This tour will take you through every street of Soho – you’ll hear dozens of stories that aren’t in the guidebooks, meet some locals and visit some hidden places well off the tourist trail, drink a few pints too along the way

4. Add a memory to the Tower Bridge Time Capsule. There actually are quite a few of these buried in London.

5. Any superbowl fans around? Here are the best places to see it on a big screen  and party this Sunday.

 

♥ Art and culture ♥

1. Philip Larkin writes poetry in neon at the Soutbank Centre.

2. Forget crisps – the best vending machine in London sells… art!

3. Many mosques in London will open their doors to everyone on Sunday. Go on. Meet amazing people, ask questions, show your interest, learn something new. It’s the best way to make the world a better place.

4. The Tate Modern is organising a Music and Art Exchange this Sunday with the artist Athena Papadopoulos and the musician Jonatan Leandoer 127. She will create a art work live through the day, he will put music to it in the evening.
