August is looking HOT!

Holiday season is well upon us and if you have no plans to holiday abroad this year don’t fret, there are plenty of activities to do in the Capital. I’m lucky to have the city of London on my doorstep and there has been no better time to explore all the amazing things London has to offer. I’ve rounded up all the best things I want to experience this month and thought to share them with you guys 🙂 So start planning your weekends.

With only a limited amount of performances available in London, I am most excited to go watch Hetty Feather now showing at the Duke of York’s Theatre. From best-selling author Jacqueline Wilson, who was my childhood favourite author. The tale of Hetty Feather is brought to life on stage by award winning script writer Emma Reeves who also wrote CBBC’s Tracey Beaker and the Olivier Award Nominated director Sally Cookson. With original musical score by Benji Bower this prodcution boasts circus skills and a huge heart, Hetty Feather is set to take us all on a terrific adventure.

With Press reviews such as this….I couldn’t help but plan my visit to watch Hetty Feather.

The Times ****

‘It’s just the ticket!’

‘It has charm by the barrel-load’

‘Phoebe Thomas is a winning Hetty’

‘Sure to please Hetty’s legions of fans’

The Stage ****

‘Sparkingly fresh’

‘The strong cast…work beautifully together’

‘Phoebe Thomas is superb’

London Riviera

I have visited Miami last year and now London has brought a little piece of Miami to the SouthBank! I am too excited to go and relax on a deck chair with a cocktail in my hand 😉 London Riviera has my name written all over it!

“Step into the summer oasis that is London Riviera, a pop-up bar and kitchen bringing the ridiculousness of Miami and the sophistication of the French Riviera to the SouthBank next to Tower Bridge all summer long!”
