London is arguably one of the most activity filled cities in the world. There are numerous things to do all year round and February is no exception. If you want to shake off the last days of winter or you have kids who need entertaining for the half term school break, then here are a few ideas for things to do around the city.

Imagine Children’s Festival, South Bank Centre, 12th-21st February

If you have kids  needing entertaining over the half term, then head on down to the South Bank Centre for their Imagine Children’s Festival. There are so many activities on offer ranging from interactive games, visiting authors and workshops, puppet shows, music and more. It really will be a feast for the senses and an opportunity for kids to really express their creativity and let their imaginations run wild. Book tickets ahead so you don’t miss out!

Cirque du Soleil- Luzia Until 1st March

The world renowned circus is back for a dazzling Mexican themed show at the Royal Albert Hall until March 1, 2020. The tickets may be expensive but they are worth it to see this bright homage to Mexico’s flora and fauna, transporting you to a different realm through brilliant costumes, contortionists and acrobatics that will leave you feeling giddy and breathless.

Flower Early Bloomer Nature Plant Snowdrop

Heralding Spring, The Chelsea Psychic Garden’s, 25th January- 2nd February

To commemorate the opening of the gardens after its winter slumber, the beautiful Chelsea Physic Garden will reopen just in time for the blooming of their snow drops, one of the first signs of warmer weather to come. Walk their snowdrop trail with over 120 varieties of snowdrops which make for a beautiful, serene way to pass the afternoon. There are also workshops, talks and lots of other plant life to admire in the gardens so you may want to make it a whole day affair!

Chinese New Year, Chinatown and all around London

Not strictly a February activity as this starts at the end of January,  the start of Chinese New Year 2020 (The year of the rat) from January 25th will bring a host of festivities marking the occasion all around the city but the most iconic place to take in the celebrations will be London’s China town. There you can take in the decorations and catch some lion dancing and also nip into a restaurant to enjoy some steaming dim sum. Catch the action on the 25th and 26th January, Gerard Street, Chinatown and Trafalgar Square and enjoy a host of food and activities over the month of February such as at the Museum of London Docklands, Chinese New Year Family Festival.

beer

BrewLdn, Brick Lane, 27th-29th February

The Old Truman Brewery will host the much anticipated independent Beer Festival, BrewLdn this February. Held over three days, you can sip on some of your favourite beers and find new lagers, ciders and craft beers. There will also be live music and street vendors with delicious food and with over 200 exhibitors this is an event that shouldn’t be missed.

Frieze art fair, the art world’s version of Fashion week is dedicated to bringing together all forms of contemporary art. It also acts as a source of inspiration for those passionate about art and design.

Presenting the work of emerging and internationally established artists, Frieze also gives a voice to prevalent topics and debates, becoming the most significant week in London’s cultural calendar.

With such a large range of installations and artwork being displayed, we have created a selection of our personal favourites! Read on to discover more.

Yuki Kimura

Kimura’s work uses imagery to explore the relationship between depicted and actual space, showing consideration of the viewer as a medium inbetween the imagery and situations that they may encounter. The “Katsura” installation is an exploration of themes such as time and dimension in concurrence to the present space where the installations have been placed.

Billie Zangewa

From a new series called “Love and Happiness”, five angular tapestries, created from refused silk, depict diaristic scenes of everyday life in which Zangewa herself features frequently. Seeking to articulate the female experience, both personal and universal, displaying her own intersectional identity as a black woman living in South Africa

Sex Work

New for 2017, this section features nine solo presentations from leading female artists (such as Betty Tompkins, Penny Slinger and Marilyn Minter) working at the extreme edges of feminist practice during the 70’s and 80’s, all sharing a focus on explicit sexual iconography combined with radical political agency. “Sex Work” pays homage to artists who transgressed sexual mores, gender norms and were frequently the object of censorship.

OUR NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD | Le marais

By September 3, 2015 BEHIND THE SCENES
854287234979bd9dc99e72a0c4aff7b7

The secret is out…

We’ve opened our first store in Paris!

We could not be happier about moving into our new neighbourhood: Le Marais. The area buzzes with boutiques, chic restaurants and food stalls, and where bookshops double up as wine bars (you couldn’t get a better combination in our eyes!). Sandwiched between St-Paul and République, the Marais has been one of the hippest parts of Paris for the last two decades.

Read on to find out what our favourite spots in the Marais are!


 

 Le Mary Celeste

If you’re looking for somewhere to brunch while people watching, Le Mary Celeste is your place!

Located in a former video editing office, the decor takes on a nautical theme with rope wrapped columns and white washed bricks. This place is renowned for their amazing cocktails, spicy kimchi and a 1 euro oyster bar at happy hour.

Tips: Bag a window seat and watch the world go by whilst sipping on Michael’s Garden Fizz (a delicious citrus drink with lime, egg whites and ginger beer) and indulging on Pain Perdu de Brioche Maison (french brioche toast with sautéed mushrooms with lemon zest and parsley). Delicious!

Merci

You cannot go to Paris without visiting the concept shopping sensation, Merci. Housed inside a 19th-century fabric factory, it’s three warehouse-like floors are bursting with furniture, homewear, fashion and stationary.

Tip: wind down with a frothy cappuccino in Merci’s fantastically dark and moody Used Book Cafe, where you can take in the thousands of books surrounding you for the whole afternoon.

Le Marché des Enfants Rouges

After visiting Merci, continue north along Rue Charlot and discover the wonderful food stalls at the Marché des Enfants Rouges, Paris’s oldest food market. As well as it’s fresh produce, fish, beef and flowers, you can also sample an international array of prepared foods such as sushi, tagines, pasta and crêpes.

Tip: eat in and bag one of the outdoor tables to experience authentic Parisian market life.

Ofr. Libairie, galerie

Near the République lies bookshop Ofr. If you’re a fan of hip fashion and contemporary arts magazines, this bookshop-come-boutique is definitely worth spending a relaxed afternoon in. Ofr. also works as an independent publishing house and creates works in collaboration with a range of artists and photographers.

Tip: don’t miss the boutique at the rear of the shop, where you’ll find emerging fashion designers and exhibition spaces.

Atelier Brancusi 

Located in a building in front of the Centre Pompidou is the restored studio of the patriarch of modern sculpture, Cosntantin Brancusi. Before he died, he left his studio along with its entire contents to the French State with the condition that it was reconstructed to show his work exactly how it stood on the day of his death. The collection houses over 137 sculptures and more than 1,600 photographic glass plates and is an absolute joy to see.

Tip: the studio is free and there’s no queuing involved!
