Firstly thank you for all your support this year, I am so so grateful. It’s been a bumper year for LLW as we have grown and continue to grow. We are so excited by the brands and people we have met this last year, that we go into 2019 with renewed energy, bringing you some exciting new projects and collaborations.
In this months January Super Seven we’ve searched out some really fun things to do. Burns Night, to Blues week to the NBA in London. If that isn’t enough check our Days Out in London and leave the comfort of your home – make it a New Year resolution to discover somewhere new each month!
New Years Day Parade: Yes you may have a headache, but we are reliably told that this is really good fun for NYD. Book your tickets, or just get up and go for a great walk catching some of the floats as they pass through London’s West End.
ART in London for January
Royal Academy: Bill Viola / Michaelangelo : life, Death Rebirth; 12 Immersive installations set alongside rarely seen drawings of Michaelangelo
Blaine/Southern : Chiharu Shiota – Me Somewhere Else. A stunning display of red rope hanging – one of those see it to believe pieces.
Kensington Palace has two beautiful costume displays running at the moment. One is the Diana Exhibition, which closes in February. The other exhibition to see is the costumes from the film about Queen Anne, The Favourite, which opens in cinemas on 1st January 2019
NBA at the O2 on 17 January : NY Knicks v Washington Wizards. We can’t believe this is in London… Come on who is going – these are two huge teams!
London Blues Week at the 100 Club: 14-17 January This 6 day festival is in it’s 3rd year. I can’t think of a nicer way than spending a dark night in January listening to some cool blues, can you?
Burns Night 25 January : A whisky masterclass at the Haymarket Hotel. Indulge your tastebuds with a wee dram or two whilst enjoying a night of celebration of the great Scottish poet Robbie Burns. As I write, there are tickets still available, but if you want to do this, I’d book quickly as they do sell out fast. We did a whisky masterclass recently and it was so much fun.
