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.

The best Christmas Show of 2020! Sleeping Beauty Panto review

Dec 26 2020

I miss going to the theatre and live events. If you want to watch the best Panto this Christmas, then opt for this contemporary version of Sleeping Beauty. The West End comes to our homes in the form of a Sleeping Beauty Pantomime that has certainly saved my particularly tough Christmas. This is the best Panto I have ever seen in my life. Seriously good, West End style production with gags full of double meanings aimed at both children and adults. Even some of the slapstick dances are hilarious. I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Best show of the year by far. Gags include references to Trump, shopping in Uk shops and other funny relatable events. What makes this production more appealing to young audiences are the contemporary songs’ arrangements such as Despacito or other ‘80s disco tunes. The music will bring together audiences of all ages.  What I love about the vibe of this show is that it was filmed pre-covid and shows people hugging and lots of togetherness and happiness that theatre used to bring us. Let’s hope this is a great reminder that arts need to be supported to stay alive. 10/10 

To watch this Pantomime CLICK HERE the viewing period closes 11.55pm on 3rd of January 2021. Your code will be valid for 4 days from your first viewing within this period.

Christmas show online: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by the Creation Theatre

Dec 22 2020

2020 has been a devastating year for the arts and theatre productions. But talent is out there and lots of small local theatrical groups have made an effort to still create amazing shows in extraordinary and challenging spaces. I want to shout out to the Creation Theatre who seem to be leaders in innovative digital theatre. They have put together their own futuristic version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz for young audiences. Let’s see the positive in online plays: you can snuggle in your favourite blanket and relax, drinking a glass of your favourite drink while watching these productions and support the arts hoping to see a big comeback in 2021.
