Review: Cabaret, New Wimbledon Theatre

An email from trade publication Lingerie Insight popped up in my inbox on Monday, and the headline 'Lingerie designer makes Cabaret comeback to dress Louise Redknapp and Will Young' caught my eye. The article reported that the designer and founder of Raine & Bea, Jenna Barnes, made costumes for Cabaret in 2013 and was invited... Continue Reading →

Brunch Club: Mildreds, N1

For the ninth meeting of Brunch Club, we decided to start tackling the expanding list of places that have been recommended to us by others ever since we started our quest. On 20th August 2017 we met at Mildreds, 200 Pentonville Road, King's Cross, London N1 9JP for perhaps the most exciting Brunch Club outing... Continue Reading →

Brunch Club: Bill’s

After our April gathering, we had quite a gap before the next Brunch Club date in our diaries (well, apart from Ed's wedding!), so the idea for Brunch Club v7.5 was conceived. It cleverly involved us all visiting different branches of the same chain, however, it took so long to fully realise that plan that... Continue Reading →

Review: House Style at Chatsworth

Now, although I'd read a few articles about this exhibition before we decided to make the trip, I had never been to Chatsworth before. I knew that the exterior was used as Pemberley in...

Brunch Club: Cornerstone Café, SE18

For the seventh Brunch Club, we used one of the dates we'd initially set aside for Duck & Waffle. This meant we gathered again on 29th April 2017 at Cornerstone Café, 9 Major Draper Street, London SE18 6GD, less than a week after our last meeting. Having visited plenty of fancy Central London venues, we... Continue Reading →

Brunch Club: Duck & Waffle, EC2N

As we were all pretty busy in March, the sixth Brunch Club gathering took place on 23rd April 2017 at Duck & Waffle, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY. This was something that we were all very much looking forward to and had to be booked months in advance. At the start of the year we'd... Continue Reading →

Review: Museum of Transology

When the Museum of Transology launched, it was announced as the largest and boldest collection of trans artefacts and photographic portraiture ever displayed in the UK. A highly intimate exhibition which challenges the idea that gender is fixed, binary and biologically determined, it explores how these artefacts have helped to fashion self-shaped gender identities. Curator... Continue Reading →
