The Event: Chelsea Flower Show

Each year the Chelsea Flower Show showcases stunning gardens and floral displays. Situated in the heart of London, this event displays the very best botanical innovations and gardening excellence.

People from all over come to admire the beauty and the creativity. Beyond the aesthetic side of it, the show serves as a platform for sustainability initiatives, advocating eco-friendly practices and raising awareness about environmental issues.

With its rich history dating back to 1913, the Chelsea Flower show continues to evolve while staying true to its routes, reaffirming its status as a beloved tradition celebrating the timeless beauty of nature.


The Exhibition: Now You See Us, Tate Modern 


This exhibition celebrates British women artists who challenged societal norms by forcing careers and exhibiting their work publicly. It’s a 400-year journey that explores the contributions of these artists, paving the way for future generations and reshaping the very definition of women artists in Britain.

The exhibition includes art from the well-known Angelica Kauffman and Rosa Bonheur and other women who were well-known at their time but have since been forgotten. Over 150 pieces by these pioneering artists come together to rewrite the narrative of art history, highlighting the often-overlooked contributions of women. 

The exhibition will be available from 16th May until 13 October.


The Theatre: The Hills of California, Harold Pinter Theater

Playwright Jez Butterworth and director Sam Mendes, known for their Tony and Olivier Award-winning collaboration on The Ferryman, reunite to bring their new play to the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The Hills of California is a new drama that unfolds in Blackpool in 1976. The story starts with the Webb sisters returning to their childhood home “Sea View” despite lacking a glimpse of the ocean. The play explores the new and different emotions they get due to new circumstances. The play promises a powerful exploration of loss, the lingering weight of the past, and the strength of the sisterhood in the face of difficult circumstances.


The Collection: Cos x Linda Farrow 

Luxury Eyewear brand Linda Farrow teamed up with Cos, for a limited-edition Spring/Summer 2024 collection. This unique partnership melded Farrow’s rich heritage and bold design language with COS’s focus on clean lines and understated luxury.

These sunglasses incorporated subtle details like gold and silver cut-outs, further demonstrating the fusion of the two brands’ aesthetics. With a variety of styles including classic aviator, cat-eye, square and round frames, the collection offers something to everyone, ensuring both timeless and statement style.


The Restaurant: Darling’s Eatery, Hackney

This new pasta restaurant has just opened its doors in Hackney’s Fish Island and is already becoming a favourite among locals. The owner, Egle Loit, has always had a passion for pasta. Originally a journalist, she retrained as a professional chef and now not only serves delicious pasta dishes but also teaches the art of pasta making.

The restaurant is small and intimate, with a communal atmosphere encouraging guests to share tables. However, separate tables are available upon request. With its delectable pasta and Egle’s warm hospitality, this new spot is sure to be a permanent fixture on the Hackney scene.
