Time Out

Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 14.16.49

As part of Time Out’s reviews team, alongside Ashleigh Arnott, Josie Ayre, Tania Ballantine, Elizabeth Darke, Kitty Drake, Danielle Goldstein, Steph Hartman, Andy Hill, Emma Hughes, Laura Richards and Yolanda Zappaterra, I reviewed Scandal Water at Punch Room at the London Edition.

Afternoon tea in the Punch Room nods back to the way it would have been in eighteenth and nineteenth century: tea is served without milk, there’s an open fire in winter, and muffins come in repro muffin-warmers. The rest of the tea is bang up to date, though, down to the cool London-themed willow-pattern china, the sustainable credentials of the tea, and our favourite twenty-first-century upgrade: punch. Choose three cups of loose-leaf tea, then food and punch are matched. Cheese shortbread, ganache tart and eccles cake came in canapé-sized mouthfuls that won’t sate the typical arvo tea appetite. But you didn’t come to Punch Room for the grub, did you? Read the rest of the review, and the rest of the round-up, online here.

Thankyou, day off

Ah, fabulous London. Ever wondered about the histories of your favourite streets? This year I wrote secret histories for Time Out for Cambridge Heath Road, Pitfield Street, Marchmont Street, Lamb’s Conduit Street, Essex Road and Hanbury Street.

I had so much fun with these that I went on to profile all the traders on Lamb’s Conduit Street in a 500-year anniversary magazine for the Rugby School.

Long before I ever moved to London, working at Time Out was pretty #careergoals, and this year I’ve been really happy to have had nine months of shifts with the magazine. I joined under Ashleigh Arnott, who’s now working for Waitrose, met Louise Schwartzkoff as she developed the new Culture & Events section, and now work with Sonya Barber who’s managing the launch of that section.

First day back from holiday and I get to see my street guide in print. Nice 🌞

Recently I’ve written street guides for Essex Road and Hanbury Street – both packed with great independent venues and cool new arts projects – as well as trying out a chiaroscuro class at the Royal Academy, learning about London’s black heritage in Tudor times, compiling this year’s online feature on New Year’s Eve parties for Olly Keen’s Nightlife section, writing and editing the listings for the mag, and writing about London Christmas rituals for a big collaborative feature in the front of the magazine. Lots of it is featured on my Muckrack page, as well as other features I’ve done this year, and I’m looking forward to filling 2017 with more brilliant London walks, talks, dinners, coffees, exhibitions and parties.
