Beer, music and food in the middle of Camden



Camden Winter Beer Hall is a kind of  festival that lasts for three months from December to February with independent British craft beers, Bavarian street food, live music and DJs to dance to. You can book tickets here.

Sessions are available for groups of four, five and six for just £ 15. Should there be a lockdown on the day you book,  your tickets will be valid for another night. The Electric Ballroom in the heart of Camden will be completely transformed in a beer hall with a Christmassy feel to it.

There will be sessions every Friday and Saturday evening from 17:30 to 22:00 and a session on Saturday afternoon from 12:00 to 16:30. Bookings will be limited to 6 people per group and from the same family.

This event wants to help British independent brewers through these difficult times, so there will be five of the best serving a selection of their best craft beers. Expect lagers, stouts, and even sour fruit beers, hot mulled wine, and cider. You will also find German sausage and bratwurst dishes and other tempting gastronomic ideas.

London theatres reopen, here are the next shows



After months of closure and waiting, it seems that soon we will be able to return to the theatre. Meanwhile, one after another, the major London theatres announce their program and reopenings. It seems that this is the right time, meanwhile many shows already have tickets on sale. Some shows will start in April, but the majority will start in May/June.

The pandemic left several hugely successful shows like Hamilton on hold and delayed the start of expected shows like Frozen and the Bob Marley musical. In any case, buy tickets from an authorized dealer with this logo, should there be other closures for the pandemic, you will get a refund via a voucher or another ticket.

It is hoped, however, that the pandemic is under control with vaccines, although there may actually be surprises. But life is short and you also have to live, so London is reopening and hopes to be back as before soon.

Don’t miss this exhibition if you like the Tudors



Hopefully, this exhibition dedicated to commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Field of Cloth of Gold should begin on May 19th and continue until September 5th.

For the uninitiated it was an 18-day meeting between King Henry VIII and King Francis of France I. Inside huge temporary palaces in Belgium, under tents made of luxurious gold fabrics or on the purpose-built courtyard , the two kings and their courtiers, hosted large banquets and exchanged expensive gifts.

The reason was to try to impress the other king. It was practically a war of luxury, music and delicious food. Both kings wanted to be seen as men of the Renaissance, refined and with good taste.

The exhibition not only explains what the political situation was like then but shows many fabrics, tapestries, clothes and vestments used during this long meeting. The name of the meeting comes from the luxurious and often golden fabrics that had been put on display. The exhibition is held at Hampton Court Palace and is included in the palace entrance ticket.

The Reading & Leeds festivals are back this year



After a one-year hiatus caused by the pandemic, the organisers are convinced they can hold this year’s edition. Since they announced it, tickets have been selling like hot cakes. The Reading Festival is the oldest still existing rock festival in the world, in fact it has continued since 1961 when it was held in Richmond, since 1971 it has been held in Reading and since 1999 the Leeds Festival has been added which has the same program at the same weekend, so the Friday program in Reading meets in Leeds on Saturday etc.

The festival went through several stages, from rock to punk, and then moved on to the more recent indie stage. While at the end of the 1980s the festival seemed to have its days numbered mainly due to a change in musical choices that pointed towards more commercial music and disappointed normal festival goers. In the following years bands like Nirvana and The Stone Roses helped to relaunch the festival so much that to please all the fans it was decided to add the Leeds festival.

The festival normally has four stages, the main one for the most famous musicians, another for punk music, a third one for alternative and indie music and one with lesser known musicians. It also has tents for dance music and cabaret. The Reading and Leeds festivals are held this year on August 27-29, the August bank holiday weekend. This year we will have names like Liam Gallagher, Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi, Queens of the Stone Age, Post Malone and many others.
