The Classic Boat Festival 2019 at St Katharine Docks 6-8 September 2019

Aug 09 2019

After the Summer I always feel a bit depressed and I need to find activities in London to beat the blues. I look forward to take my son to the Classic Boat Festival which is returning to St Katharine Docks from the 6-8th September from 11am – 6pm for its 11th and most impressive outing since its inception in 2008. It will be one of the highlights of Totally Thames 2019, a month-long celebration of the London’s iconic waterway and its rich history through a range of river-based events.

The festival will host an impressive display of beautiful classic boats, with plenty of activities for visitors and families to enjoy – such as a tour of the historic Lady Daphne or paddle-boarding in the Marina. What I look forward to the most is to climb on-board and explore around 40 vintage work boats and sailing and motor yachts including Dunkirk Little Ships and many others.

Aug 04 2019

I recently attended the showcase party for Notting Hill Carnival 2019 and I can now reveal that this year the two-day event will be better than ever before. Here are the highlights of what you need to know if you are planning a visit with and without kids. The world’s second biggest carnival and Europe’s largest street event, Notting Hill Carnival 2019 will – for an incredible 53rd time – be taking place in Notting Hill on the August Bank Holiday weekend. UK’s biggest celebration of culture, diversity and inclusivity, it will once again be full of vibrant colours, incredible music, dancing and delicious food. As is tradition, Panorama, the UK’s biggest and most important Steel Pan Competition takes place on the evening that precedes Carnival at Emslie Horniman Pleasance Park.

Chatting Via Satellite and Friends with rock legends The Rembrandts

Jul 29 2019

In my very exciting journalistic career, I have had the pleasure to interview Phil Solem. This name might not ring a bell but you certainly know his work. He is the co-founder of the band The Rembrandts, the pop-rock duo of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters (Phil Solem and Danny Wilde) who co-wrote the effervescent hit TV song, I’ll Be There For Youin the early 90’s for global phenomena sitcom Friends. There are probably very few people on the planet who can’t sing the chorus, a pleasant ear worm that harks back to happy times of the long running series and multiple re runs! For Phil Solem and Danny Wilde, that song is just one small chapter in a friendship and creative relationship spanning four decades, two bands, four studio albums, two greatest hits records, and a catalogue brimming with smart, well-wrought pop gems.
