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.

Prop Houses runs until Sunday 5 September (10 am-4 pm daily) at Act One Cinema, Acton High Street, London W3 6NA.

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.

The exhibition is open from 3rd September until October 3rd, Monday - Saturday, by appointment only. Booking is available via info@atelier-lk.com or via Instagram @atelier_lk_

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.

Her solo exhibition will be shown in The Gallery At Green & Stone, from 5th-18th September.

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.
