The National Portrait Gallery: Rebel Women
Much of London has tried to honour the centenary of the vote for women in some shape or form, but few places are as well equipped to do so as the National Portrait, whose job it is to celebrate and commemorate figures who have altered the course of British history.
Theatre Review: Austentatious
If you are not cash or time rich, then going to the theatre can seem like a luxury. If you add to this a show that is impossible to predict and whose quality is not guaranteed, then the decision to see Austentatious could be difficult. It shouldn’t be.
Discover London: City Lit
Based in Holborn, they teach everything from astronomy, to Arabic, to photo etching. I challenge you to think of a hobby you’ve always longed to try that they don’t have on their programme!
Theatre Review: The Sleeper
The Sleeper is a real ask of the actors both physically and mentally – it’s well-meaning, uncomfortable, funny, sad and unselfconscious. It is part of a conversation needed now, more than ever.
The Anti Rom-Com and The Search For Subversion
It’s fair to say that the traditional romantic comedy has been on a downward spiral for at least a couple of decades, and arguably since Hollywood’s Golden age. In response to this, the clever folk in Tinsletown started making what I will call “Anti rom – coms”.

St.Vincent – Masseduction Review
St Vincent (Annie Clark) is back with her new album Masseducation, her first since her eponymous third in 2014.
Selena Gomez – A Blank Canvas
This may not seem revolutionary, or even a recipe for success, but the experimentation will allow her to appeal to various demographics, whilst her variety will stop her brand becoming stale
E4’s New Show: Gap Year
The new eight part romantic drama is set to air this Thursday 23rd of February, and follows a motley crew of travellers, covering Asia, heartbreak and high jinks.
La La Land Review
Musicals in the old style don’t come around very often. It’s been decades since we last saw Gene Kelly tapping his feet, or Debbie Reynolds wishing us a good morning.
