Art Play London where you can learn a new skill

Art Play London hosts a number of different fun classes for children and adults where you can learn a new skill.

What is crafting though? Well it is a hobby on anything which you can create using your hands be it painting, decorating a cake, making greeting cards, making jewellery and so much more.  

Crafts is great as it is very therapeutic. Helps with your mind, body and soul. It has been said that creating things with your own hands leaves you happier, gets your body moving, helps you relax and helps clears your mind.

Art Play kindly invited me to attend one of their classes in which I chose to go along to one of their Terrarium masterclasses as I love plants and gardening but never made a Terrarium before.

What type of crafts do you enjoy the most?

The Choir of Man drink beer, laugh, sing and be merry

I love going to the theatre in the West End but sometimes I just want to get up there on stage and get involved myself. With The Choir of Man you can do just that as before the show begins you can head up on stage and enjoy a pint with the boys and even play some pub games with them. After a pint or two it is then time to head to your seats where you can watch, and sing along all whilst getting merry on a few pints of beer. Also a select few audience members throughout the show might just get lucky and be pulled on the night by one of the men as they lead them up on stage for an intimate moment.

I was invited down on a PR basis to experience the delights of The Choir of Man.

The Choir of Man

The Choir of Man is an Olivier nominated, worldwide smash hit which has returned to the West End!

The Choir of Man is simply men on a stage which has been converted into a pub where they drink beer, tell stories of their life, and sing out great hits from artists such as Queen, Luther Vandross, Sia, Paul Simon, Adele, Guns & Roses, Avicii and Katy Perry to name but a few.

A wildly talented group of incredible instrumentalists, world-class wordsmiths, and sensational singers; this cast of nine (extra)ordinary guys serve it all… live!

Watch as friends Michael Baxter (The Maestro), Matt Beveridge (The Romantic), Owen Bolton (The Beast), Matt Thorpe (The Joker), Levi Tyrell Johnson (The Hard Man), Mark Irwin (The Barman), Matt Nalton (The Pub Bore), Denis Grindel (The Poet), and Jordan Oliver (The Handyman) tell amusing life stories, have fun on stage and sing out belting loved classics.

Plus also enjoy the delights of the live band on stage of whom Emmanuel Nana Kwasi Bonsu plays the drums, Jack Hartigan the guitar, Darius Luke Thompson the violin and Caleb Wilson the bass.

Pasta Remoli Holy Macaroni real authentic Italian food

Pasta Remoli serves up authentic Italian food within five restaurants across London as well masterclasses on how to make pasta in which Chef Simone Remoli hosts within London’s Stratford area.

I adore Italian food but it is very hard to find a decent Italian restaurant which serves up tasty Italian dishes especially pasta which tastes authentic until now. Pasta Remoli is perfect if you are looking for an authentic Italian taste as all their pasta is made from Italian 00 flour which comes direct from Italy, making their pasta truly taste like real Italian pasta which you would eat if in Italy. All their ingredients are fresh and their pasta and sauces all are homemade. As well as being able to dine and eat authentic Italian dishes within any Pasta Remoli restaurants, Chef Simone Remoli also holds masterclasses on how to make pasta and Italian sauces throughout the year at Bakehouse by Signorelli in London Stratford.

I was sent down along with my friend on a courtesy basis thanks to The Food Marketing Experts to Pasta Remoli to sample Pasta Remoli restaurant within Wembley which was absolutely delicious. Couple weeks later they also sent me to attend Chef Simone Remoli first ever pasta masterclass on how to make pasta along with some others I know from LPUL Club which was really interesting and yet fun.

Pasta Remoli

Pasta Remoli is founded by Chef Simone Remoli.

They have given us characters from heroes to villains with super powers to our comics, books and screens. Characters such as  AquamanBatman, Flash, SupermanGreen Lantern, Wonder Woman, and so many more.

Monarch Theatre has focussed largely on Batman and the villains he has had to deal with throughout the comic series, TV and movies.

I love all animals and always wondered what it would be to of met a dinosaur but I never knew we actually do still live amongst dinosaurs, as in an evolutionary sense, birds are a living group of dinosaurs because which descended from our common ancestor of all dinosaurs. However no such dinosaur, such as the Brachiosaurus, Tyrannosaurus or even a Velociraptor, are still alive sadly, or are they?

Thanks to technology and science at Jurassic Word: The Exhibition you can meet not just those dinosaurs but so many more, even baby ones.

Pottd get potty and create ever lasting memories

I love to get crafty at home as it is fun but also great for wellness. When I discovered about Pott’d People I was super excited as looking at their videos via Instagram and surfing through their website it gave me lots of creative ideas.

Pottery to me really does relax me and take my mind of things but it also at the same time lets me release my creativity. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and helps boost my own self-confidence and resilience after creating anything. Even though my pottery skills are not A1 as I am a novice after all it’s something that I made from scratch and something for me to be proud of.

I was kindly gifted courtesy of Pott’d People for an honest review.

Pott’d

Pott’d was launched back in 2021 by couple Frankie and Sascha.

They love pottery and hence want everyone else to fall in love with pottery so they decided to put together pottery boxes with easy instructions within each box. To them pottery is not just fun but also great for mental health as it lets you disconnect from the world and channel your inner artist.

Cages where emotions are locked

I love theatre but I have never experienced anything like Cages before. Cages is a dark, gothic, heart felt musical which uses cinematic technology along with synchronised acting all which focuses on control by the government, as within Anhedonia emotions and love is forbidden.

Emotions are what makes us though and an important part of our life but within Anhedonia emotions is not allowed in particular love, but Woolf a boy born with a red heart changes all this when he gets the attention of a young female and unlocks her heart but sadly not all ends well for Woolf and his love Madeline.

I was invited along to watch Cages, experience their VIP bar area and also taste their themed Cages menu within the Riverside Studios restaurant.

Cages at Riverside Studio

Created by CJ Baran and Ben Romans, Cages has enjoyed a successful and acclaimed run in Los Angeles since 2019 and now is premiering at UKs Riverside Studio.

The Ivy in Canary Wharf is my garden of Eden

Canary Wharf, is full of restaurants but there is a chain of restaurants which is legendary and that is The Ivy and as having never dined at Ivy this one stood out to me for a number of reasons, not just because it is a well known brand but the look of the restaurant which is full of plants.

The restaurant is set over two floors, has a terrace, conservatory, main inside dining area, bar area, decorated with foliage bringing the outside in, has great views, and serves delicious stunning looking food. For me The Ivy in Canary Wharf has become my Garden of Eden as it is like a gardeners paradise but extra special as you can enjoy an array of cocktail and food within this garden.

Using Open Table I booked and went along to The Ivy after work with my friend and we were both loved our time at The Ivy in Canary Wharf.

The Ivy

The Ivy originally opened by Abel Giandolini back in 1917 as an unlicensed Italian café. Since then it has been owned by many different owners.

The original Ivy has an upstairs with a private dining room. It has an iconic shimmering Central Dining Bar, signature harlequin stained-glass windows, oak panelling and a striking contemporary art collection.
