Film review: The Lion King at the IMAX cinema

Jul 22 2019

Yesterday we went to see The Lion King CGI remake by Jon Favreau and it was just brilliant. It brought back great memories from the Disney’s 1994 animated musical. The film was exactly what I was looking forward to, if not more. Moviegoers should see The Lion King in IMAX to enjoy the full richness of the film’s sound and imagery. Jon Favreau directed the film with the intent of creating the most immersive experience possible. IMAX provides audiences with the biggest screens, greater scope, breathtaking detail, crisp image quality and powerful sound for a truly immersive experience.

Bread Making Masterclass at Paul Bakery in Covent Garden

Paul Bakery and patisserie is a family run business which started in France and now has shops all around the world. I was invited to a bread making masterclass with a Valentine theme which really appealed to me for a few reasons. Firstly, I always wanted to attend a bread making course but I never got the chance. Secondly, when I was offered the opportunity to attend a masterclass in a renowned bakery, I could not let this opportunity go by as I have to admit that I love Paul’s bread loafs. Therefore having the chance to make my own baguette or olive loaf, was the most tempting venture I could have asked for.

Afternoon Tea at The Delaunay

Feb 10 2019
Situated amidst the London West End theatres is The Delaunay, a stunning all day café and restaurant which can be found just off the Aldwych. One of the reasons to visit The Delaunay is their afternoon tea which is served seven days a week between 3 and 6pm. 
Once you enter the main building, there is a very nice receptionist that welcomes you and leads you to your table. The café restaurant area is quite vast and it seems inspired by the European Grand Café appearances, which makes it seem rather majestic.
