  • ‘Lima’ becomes the first Peruvian restaurant to win a Michelin Star. Wait for the floodgates to open.

    We can't wait to try it for ourselves!

  • ‘Summer’ is finally here and the place to be on a balmy London evening is definitely the Southbank Centre for Priceless London Wonderground - a magnificent amusement ground of curious gardens, daring rides, titillating sideshows and quirky bars all bathed in a magical carnival atmosphere. Check out the headline show Cantina - A sensational cocktail of glamorous vaudeville and scintillating circus staged inside a traditional circus Spigeltent.

  • Danny Boyle's Frankenstein - We flagged this up as a ‘what’s hot’ last April so we’re really pleased to see Danny Boyle pick up the Best Director gong at last night’s awards - the only major UK theatre awards to be voted for entirely by the theatregoing public. Can’t wait to see his Tempest-inspired opening ceremony in August, but before that you can catch Frankenstein again at the National Theatre’s Encore cinema screenings from June.

  • Battle Lines Drawn – the first of Westminster Council’s five miles of new double yellow lines hit the street today and they are still threatening to extend parking charges to midnight. The West End, which attracts millions of visitors - and pounds - to its night-time economy of restaurants, theatres and nightlife each year, is set to get a whole lot less accessible. A strangely shortsighted decision - and one that will hit the businesses and the people who work through the night to keep our city buzzing the hardest.

  • Just in case you thought pop-up restaurants might be going off the boil, here are our two favourite hot-spots of the moment: currently in residence at the Ten Bells in Spittalfields, the Young Turks present surprising dishes such as vanilla ice cream with Jerusalem artichoke to create a true foodie experience. For a more traditional take on flavour combinations head to the Disappearing Dining Club at the Red Gallery on Rivington Street for fabulous food combined with great music.

  • Roland Emmerich’s new film Anonymous isn’t even on general release yet but it has already caused quite a stir, (especially in Stratford-Upon-Avon). The film presents the theory that the plays and sonnets of William Shakespeare were actually written by the 17th Earl of Oxford, Edward De Vere. Anonymous is also a political thriller full of power struggles, attempted murder, jealousy and hatred, whilst demonstrating the influential nature of theatre and its ability to produce powerful reactions from an audience. The film is a venerable ‘Who’s Who’ of British film and boasts beautiful costumes along with some superb individual performances most notably from Vanessa Redgrave and Rhys Ifans. Philippa, our Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator, was lucky enough to attend the film’s premiere as part of the British Film Industry’s annual London Film Festival ahead of the crowds and definitely recommends making time to see Anonymous when the film hits cinema screens on Friday.

  • Based on the novel by Mary Shelley (already one of my favourite books so dangerous territory for any adaptation) - it conveys all the darkly fascinating concepts within this gothic horror: scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil. All gloriously amplified with the seamless combination of live theatre, and live simulcasts to cinemas around the world. Stunning camera work allowed a unique perspective to the cinema audience through close-ups, special effects and striking overhead shots. And Johnny Lee Miller must win every award going for his performance as the creature...

    Frankenstein runs at the National until May 2nd 2011 but the fastest selling show in the history of the NT has long been sold out. Some day tickets are available each morning - and well worth queuing through the night for!

  • Michel Roux's Service on BBC2 has got the team talking after following eight trainees trying to convince Michel Roux they can handle the pressure in some of Europe's best restaurants and hotels. Nathan's mantra has always been, 'the key to great service is anticipating clients' needs' and Michel Roux himself says, 'You have to know what the customer wants before he even realises it himself'. Great minds think alike.

  • Black Swan. Interesting that the team are raving about Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan’. Themes explored include destructive narcissism, drug taking, murder, ruthless ambition, fragile mental states and erotica. And I thought classical ballet was all about strict discipline and pink tutus. Worth a watch.

  • Inflatables – they are ubiquitous at big summer and sporting events but design has barely moved on in 30 years. Surely someone can come up with a cool take on the inflatable? Harder and harder to justify the gas-guzzling generator if they don’t even look good. Has the bubble burst?

  • Sky Rainforest Rescue. CSR comes of age as Sky teams up with WWF to save 3 million hectares of Amazonian rainforest in Brazil. The media giant will match public donations pound for pound, aiming for a total of £4,000,000, enough to save an area the size of Belgium. Catch our Sky Rainforest Rescue Pod as it tours the UK this summer.
