“All things seem possible in May”

It certainly feels like that this month, as London re-opens. Museums, theatres, restaurants and cafe will all open up from 17 May. I personally am really looking forward to eating inside! With quite a few events happening this weekend, the May Super Seven is busy.

Next week is my birthday and there is a birthday gift for you. I have collaborated with a few small London brands that will offer a birthday discount in store for 5 days. All the details will be on my Instagram page on Tuesday. I hope it encourages you to get out and support the high street, with my little birthday treat attached.


In a month when so many museums and exhibitions are opening, I have done a LLW art edit on what exhibitions you must book now. From Kusama to Hockney, felt chemists to cans of coke in the smaller, more boutique exhibitions. Check it out as some finish on 8 May.


Feeling cautious about going out and shopping? Then let the Anya Hindmarch Village tempt you. Anya is opening ‘The Village’ along Pont St on 17 May. At the heart will be a new Anya Cafe, alongside a Plastic Shop committed to her single use plastic message and the Labelled Shop to help you organise yourself. Finally, a Village Hall that will house different concepts and collaborations, starting with a Hair Salon.

I’m a huge fan of the AH brand and every purchase I make, always makes me smile every time I use it. I am really excited about this.


London Original Print Fair  A brilliant opportunity to invest in some prints. This year it is located in various galleries around London instead of the RA. Well worth getting out for 1-8 May.


Spend a Day out in Greenwich (See the new Tudor to Windsor exhibition when it opens at the end of May) and head over on the River Boat to Greenwich Peninsula and catch the new rainbow installation by artist Liz West. 


London Library Lit Festival 1-3 May. Celebrating 180 years of the London Library with a host of digital talks and workshops. They have a great line-up from Salman Rushdie, Tom Stoppard and Polly Samson to a poetry party.


One of my highlights in 2020 was the Gaia Installation in Greenwich. It returns this month, and I cannot recommend it more highly. I wrote about my Painted Hall visit then, and I plan on returning at the end of this month. Opens 30 May for one month.


Live performances return to our theatres and I cannot wait. I’m off to see Amelie in May, but take a look at what is out there in ‘Theatreland’ and you may find yourself surprised at what tempts you. It could be the new Cinderella by Andrew Lloyd Webber or the new Bob Marley’s Musical, Get Up Stand Up. 


Coldplay are live streaming from Worthy Farm on 22 May. Sign up to get your Coldplay tickets and watch from the comfort of your own home. Tickets £20.
