London’s Largest Parks for Social Distancing in Lockdown 3.0

Jan 21 2021

With the UK currently in a third national lockdown, alert level 5 has resorted us to stricter social distancing rules and we are only advised to leave the house once a day for exercise. Parks are the only thing that seem to keep us sane at the moment. Whilst the R rate across the UK is between 1.2 to 1.3 based on the latest data, it seems London’s R rate has dropped to a best estimate of 0.9 to 1.2, suggesting the virus may be slowing across the capital.

To help London prevent any further spread, researchers at Essential Living have crunched the numbers to reveal how many people can visit London’s biggest parks, whilst still adhering to social distancing. Taking the Ordnance Survey list of biggest parks, we extracted the six largest within Greater London and calculated how many visitors could occupy the parks whilst also maintaining the two metre social distancing rule.

UK’s First Float-in Cinema opens in London following Paris Success

Sep 24 2020

Throughout lockdown I have missed going to the cinema. Outdoor cinema is the new THING and now even the UK’s first cinematic experience by boat. There are only a few days left to enjoy this, though. The Openaire Float-In Cinema sponsored by luxury ice cream brand Häagen-Dazs is opened to the public until Sunday 27th September.  It follows the pioneering global first ‘cinema on water’ concept by Häagen-Dazs in partnership with the City of Paris and MK2  earlier this summer, which received widespread global acclaim.

 The Luna Cinema socially distanced experience is in full swing with screening across South West London for a number of  screenings at King George’s Park (23rd September-27th September) and Wimbledon Park (29th September-4th October). There they will be screening blockbuster hits and classic films including Joker, Rocketman, and feel-good, timeless classics such as Pretty Woman and Grease. Given that new lockdown restrictions are in place, Luna is a go-to event with its 2 and 4-person pitches allowing it to continue to screen fan favourite films whilst complying with the latest government response.
