What To Do In September
First off, if you have a free moment this weekend, I would catch the last few days of Jasper Fry's exhibition PROP HOUSES. I am a massive fan of Jaspers work and prop houses, so this hits a real sweet spot for me.
Now I will take you to the other side of town to see the Atelier LK exhibition. Atelier LK founders, Ruby Keane & Lisa Jones, have created something exceptional with the mixture of 20th Century Furniture amongst their chosen artist work. All set upon one incredible backdrop of the former home of artist & flamingo dancer, Ron Hitchins (1926-2019). I found it wholly thrilling and a real breath of fresh air.
Next, we will see the exhibition of the talented young artist Nneka Uzoigwe 'This exhibition includes a selection of work introducing the different themes that have steered Nneka towards her dreamlike compositions'. I have been a fan of her surreal self-portraits for some time, so I will not miss the opportunity to see them in person.
A Modern, minimalistic basement isn't usually the thing that will get me going. Still, I have to make an exception for SOMA as it is brought to us by the wonderful people at Kricket (one of my favourite places to eat). It is a stand along bar right next to their Soho restaurant. It will have an array of cocktails with Indian influences such as the 'Pickled Mooli Martini - vodka, dry vermouth, lightly pickled mooli and fennel oil'. Once you've wet your whistle, head next door to have your socks blown off by the ever-evolving, mouthwatering menu at Kricket.

So to end, I am no film buff, but I have missed going to the cinema and have yet to find anything that hits my sweet spot. That was until I saw the trailer for 'The Eyes of Tammy Faye' - I love a good biopic, ditto for anything with Jessica Chastain, so I think this might be the film to get me back in the cinema.
Release Date 17th September
P.S - If you haven't already watched it, I loved The White Lotus.
