Getting lucky at The Bingo Academy

I feel that the idea of bingo to many has been misconstrued as an activity purely for older people. Yet, since moving to London I have realised that this really isn’t the case any more. You may have already seen my post on Bogan Bingo which I attend regularly, BUT It was recently brought to my attention that there are some strong bingo contenders on the scene. I will make it my mission to attend as many of these as I can and report back so we can find out which is the best bingo night in the Capital. And so with that in mind I waddled along to the press and preview night of The Bingo Academy’s latest venture, which takes form in the shape of a pop-up at The Vaults underneath Waterloo Station, which is on until 2nd June!Read More »

Press For Gin with Brockmans

Have you ever been to an event or party that was out of this world unreal? I did, back in 2016 when Brockmans Gin held a dinner party in Shoreditch’s Village Underground and it was a night ‘Like No Other’. You can read more about this HERE. I still speak about that event and remember how incredible it was, so when I had the chance to revisit Brockmans to celebrate their incredible Gin in this years set of events called #PressForGin, there really was no way I was going to miss it. Here’s how the night unfolded…

Fromage a Trois Cheese Party at Rascals

In my eyes, cheese is one of the great wonders of the world. I don’t know what I’d do with my life if cheese was never invented. I feel incredibly sorry for those who can’t eat the glorious stuff as a staple part of their diet. So when I heard that Rascals in Shoreditch holds a weekly cheese party, I simply HAD to get myself a ticket and gear up for possibly the cheesiest night of my life.

A night to remember at The London Cabaret Club

Dine. Dance. Dare.

Everyone’s heard of cabaret, and although it can often come across as cheesy if not executed probably, this is far from the case of The London Cabaret Club located close to Holborn in the beautiful ballroom at Victoria house. We headed down at the weekend to see their latest venture, London Never Dies and it really was a great night, it’s great to experience something completely different from your usual Saturday night out in the centre of the city. And what’s more, with Valentine’s Day coming up they’re putting on a romantic version of the show called Love Never Dies!

Eggsploring at Creme Egg Camp!

I LOVE CREME EGGS. There, I said it. I look forward to them all winter long (although they seem to be appearing earlier and earlier each year now). So I was over the moon to attend the new creme egg pop up which opens today in Shoreditch! It’s called the Creme Egg Camp and it’s here to help you celebrate ‘Creme Egg hunting season’ and hopefully give you more of a chance of finding one of the extremely rare white chocolate eggs!

Christmas has arrived in London: Winter Wonderland Hyde Park

It’s that magical time of year again when everyone begins to get more festive and it’s acceptable to drink mulled wine. You must know what that means? Obviously it means that Hyde park is taken over by bright lights and the smell of roasted chestnuts fills the air. Yes, Winter Wonderland opens its doors for the 11th year today…

A VIP day at the football with Grosvenor Casinos

At the weekend, Grosvenor Casinos treated me to a trip to Craven Cottage to watch Fulham FC take on Preston North End in their twelfth championship game of the season. I’ve been to quite a few football matches in my time as my dad and brother are football mad, but this one was definitely the best day I’ve experienced as a whole. From as soon as we arrived we were treated like VIPs and really enjoyed the entire day…

Friday Night Dating with Social Concierge

Surely everyone’s either heard of or had a go at Tinder or Bumble, mindlessly swiping through the photos that unsuspecting ‘matches’ want you to see in order to present themselves to their suitors in the best possible light. Or organising a date with someone you’ve only seen the torso of because the image got cropped funny, only for them to turn up looking somewhat like a farmyard animal with a perm. No? Okay, just me then.

So when Social Concierge invited me to join them at one of their dating events I thought it’d be a great way of meeting people the good old-fashioned way, in person. After all, I had nothing to lose…
