House of Fraser Christmas in July

House of Fraser Christmas in July Previews

It’s a dizzying feeling stepping off the practically baking hot streets of Baker Street into the cool House of Fraser showrooms to be confronted with Christmas trees and sparkle.

Festival Food Packing List: What to Take to Camp Bestival

Last week I teased you with all the delicious dining experiences available at Camp Bestival. Of course all this gastro indulgence can get expensive, so you definitely need to bring your own food supplies as back-up. We’ve gone to our last two festivals by train and my biggest concern was not having too much to…

Festival Food: What to Eat at Camp Bestival

    We’re getting dizzy with excitement about heading off to Camp Bestival in just over two weeks’ time. One thing we enjoyed at our first family festival experience two years ago was tucking into the fabulous food on offer.

We were invited to check out hip Camden bar Zen Sai and their new cocktails and summer season menu of Malaysian and Indian fusion dishes. Don’t you love the name Zen Sai? Sounds like a great spot to chill for an evening… or to Kill Bill! Zen Sai offers some outside seating, a mezzanine level…

THE ELEPHANTOM New London Theatre

The Elephantom at New London Theatre (Family Theatre Review)

    A little girl wakes up to find a ghostly elephant in her bedroom. At first, it’s all fun and games but before long, the Elephantom becomes too big to handle. He farts, he bounces, he breaks things and he sends her parents (who can’t even see him) half-way round the bend. It’s up…

Eat London with Kids (and Ryan Giggs): Cafe Football

‘It’s a bit like a restaurant and a bit like a pub,’ Ezra announced as we settled at our table at Cafe Football in Westfield Stratford. I couldn’t have put it better myself. It’s got the high roofs and mood lighting of a diner along with the laddish but relaxed atmosphere of a traditional pub….

Recycle, Revive, Remember: Organ Donation #Spellitout
