I spent a rather charming evening at The Little Orchestra in March. They were using the newly opened Alexandra Palace theatre, a beautifully restored venue oozing faded glamour, much like Wilton’s Music Hall.

The Little Orchestra is actually a regular sized orchestra, j...

Here's a novel idea for you - a poetry brothel. And it works rather well.

Sexing up what can already be quite a sensuous thing, the Poetry Brothel works like one might imagine a bordello of old. Kinda raucous, kinda filthy. The poets each take the stage to give you a fi...

It was my birthday in August which gave me an excuse to take a day off and do something off the beaten track without the hoardes of tourists around to spoil things. My choice was the Old Operating Theatre which I have been wanting to visit for a good long while now.

Science Showoff gives real scientists doing real research in the field and in the lab...

Blingo – Hip Hop Bingo. Superfun. I love Bingo, I love Hip Hop and I had really enjoyed Bogan Bingo previously, which was from the same guys so I had high hopes. They were met.

How do they make Bingo = Blingo? Well, firstly with our inimitable hosts – Grandma Flash with...

Who thinks a spelling bee sounds like fun? Well, weirdly, I do and so do quite a few other people and, because this is London and there is anything you could ever want in London, there is one!

Jordi explained to us he quit his job to start a new events company which foc...
