1930s Friday Evening Fizz at FTM

Published on 08th October 2018

Kick off your weekend with a swing and join the Fashion and Textile Museum for this very special Friday evening late night opening of Night and Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs. Revel in 1930s style while sipping on a glass of fizz while viewing this glamorous exhibition   As a decade of design, the Thirties saw off the excess of the Jazz Age and ushered in the utilitarianism of World War II. As the flapper grew up, so too did her fashions. The new silhouettes of the 1930s played with the hard-edged chic seen in the Art Deco and Moderne styles, the unexpected as seen in the surrealists and the sensuality of silver screen sirens. The exhibition will explore the day and evening styles of the decade, complemented by photographs of the stars who championed them. With fashion as the lens, Night and Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs will traverse the great period of social change that was the 1930s. Price: £12. All tickets include exhibition entry and a glass of fizz. Book online

London Bridge

Liven up your senses in London Bridge

Published on 05th October 2018

Summer might be over, but that’s no excuse to hide away indoors! As the old saying goes, if you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life – and there’s no better place to fall in love with the capital all over again than London Bridge. This small but perfectly formed historical neighbourhood on the Thames is worth exploring especially if you suffer from “been there, done that” with other parts of the city. We’re going to fix that for you, by livening up your senses… Get moving Silent Disco and Time Out have partnered to bring you a unique way to experience London at night. Ever go to a club and think, this DJ isn’t really doing it for me, I want to check out a different room, but I might lose my friends. Problem solved: three DJs, one room, wireless headphones, and the best views of the Thames you can set your soundtrack for the night. From high atop The Shard you can dance to the beat of your choice. The NELKEN-Line is a global dance project inspired by the infamous Pina Bausch who used choreographed lines as a recurring theme in her work. The project takes contemporary dance out of the theatre, into the street and can be performed by anyone. It’s London debut was led by Dickson Mbi, touted as the next great British choreographer of his time. But you don’t have to be a professional to take part — The Pina Bausch foundation gives you step-by-step tutorials and you can make your NELKEN-Line with a group of friends, post it to the site and share your art with the world. “Me time” movement is also possible for solo explorers. Globe House Yoga offers daily classes and weekend workshops for all aspiring yogis. If a good old walk is more your style, the off-the-beaten-track Low Line walk gives a great sense of the Thames’ Victorian heritage by taking you through the viaduct systems that linked the various neighbourhoods along the riverbank.   Taste of the Thames Never been to India? Here’s an opportunity to travel with your taste buds. Celebrate the delights of the afternoon “High Chai” at The Lalit London. It’s everything you love about a traditional high tea but with an Indian twist. Cutting Chai (black tea with the most glorious masala spices) accompanies miniature samosas, feather-light pakodas ensconced in light gram flour batter, chicken tikka and paneer flatbread rolls for your savoury palate and a selection of sweets which include the milk-based sweet barfi and a delectable Indian version of the shortbread biscuit. The experience is certainly a nod to the long, intertwined historical relations between Britain and India that the Thames has served as a conduit for. The iconic warehouses just around the corner at Shad Thames used to house the spices that came up the river from across the Indian Ocean. Sight Catch a river bus from London Bridge City Pier and see London by water. You can opt for a tour, or do as the locals do which is hop on the commuter riverbus run by MBNA Thames Clipper. Go east toward Greenwich and visit the newly refurbished Cutty Sark, or go west to Hampton Court and see how the Tudors lived.  When you’ve made your way back to London Bridge City Pier, treat yourself to a lavish cocktail at Gong in The Shard. It’s the highest bar in Europe and the views are spectacular. The clever new cocktail menu has been introduced that is inspired by iconic film directors, the classic menu also has everything from a perfect Tom Collins to a sublime French champagne cocktail. If you’re a bit peckish still, the bar snacks are also a sight to behold. We love the mini seafood tacos prettied up with edible flowers. The Gong does get very busy so it is advisable to book well in advance. If heights aren’t your thing, there is always London Bridge itself. Face west, and pat yourself on the back. You are a true Londoner once again.   Sound Put your headphones on, fire up that smartphone and experience London Bridge with your ears. Musicity Londonis the brainchild of DJ and BBC Presenter Nick Luscombe. Musicity invites artists to respond to a particular place with a specially commissioned track. Check out participating composers at The White Cube and Southwark Cathedral. For something more traditional, check out free recitals or Evensong at Southwark Cathedral or head to Bar 31  on a Friday or Saturday to soak up the sounds of acoustic performances from local musicians.    Touched by the olfactory Rituals… in the newly done up London Bridge Station has a stunning selection of home fragrances inspired by the Ayurvedic traditions of India and the exotic floral scents of the Far East. Just a hop, skip and a jump away from London Bridge station is Neal’s Yard Remedies Therapy Rooms on the edge of Borough Market where you can treat yourself an aromatherapy massage.

Doris Salcedo White Cube

Doris Salcedo Exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey

Published on 03rd October 2018

Doris Salcedo is the latest artist to exhibit at White Cube Bermondsey. The exhibition reflects Salcedo’s continued focus on the experience of mourning and the connection between violence, anonymity and public space. ‘The experience of an individual is always my point of departure. But during the process of making an artwork, I must maintain a distance in order to leave that person intact, untouched. And from there, as soon as I begin working, everything enters into the paradoxical terrain of art.’ In her work Salcedo questions and exposes trauma by exploring its capacity to reveal and connect with grief, carving out a space for mourning that is both poignant and insistent. ‘My work is about the memory of experience, which is always vanishing, not about experiences taken from life’, she has said. The exhibition is open from 28th September – 11th November 2018.
