In the words of the London Riviera, grab a cocktail, recline on a sun lounge, pull up a flamingo and WELCOME TO THE LONDON RIVIERA!
Walk the Walk is a grant making charity that raises money for vital breast cancer causes. The unique trademark of the moonwalk is to walk in your bra, decorated in line with the event theme, to raise awareness of the campaign – men included!
Street food markets are booming and one of my favourites is KERB, which recently opened in London Bridge.
So you may be thinking how have you never been to the IMAX? It’s been around for years and is the biggest screen in Europe (no word of a lie, it’s insane)! The honest answer is I really don’t know. I certainly didn’t know what I was missing out on until the weekend just gone. If you haven’t been, you to are missing out!
London is famous for it’s weekend brunches. The latest breakfast trend in the capital is heading out for brunch with friends, only with unlimited alcohol (usually prosecco and mimosas) for a 2 hour window. Great right? Or very dangerous, I’ll let you decide.
Every year over 200 employees and alumni dedicate their spare time to producing the renowned PwC Pantomime which is a charitable theatrical production thats core aim is to give kids an experience that brings them joy and (hopefully) nurtures a life-long love of the performing arts and this year I got the opportunity to help choreograph!

Recently there seems to be a ‘day’ dedicated to all walks of life. I don’t remember there ever being this many days dedicated to your favourite foods, drinks or wildlife! It was national burger day last week and lucky for us, it’s World Gin day this Saturday 11 June! (Who even makes this stuff up?)
Everyone looks forward to the weekend. It’s a chance to wind down from work, forget about that report due in Monday, catch up with friends (nobody bats an eyelid if you are brunching with prosecco at 11am, this is just a warm up for the rest of the weekend) and for some it’s time to fit…
