What’s on this Month
Why not visit Circus-Fest at the #Roundhouse this April to help put a little spring in your step this April? This event runs from the 4th- 24th April and puts on shows that push the human body to the extreme and has discussions on the cultural significance of #circus throughout history. The programme is packed with spectacular #events from many renowned circus companies such as the Finnish Race Horse Company and the Barely Methodical Troupe. A captivating solo performance called La Poeme, will be performed by cult #French artist Jeanne Mordoj. There will also be a photography exhibition from Ben Hopper, and a multimedia performance that explores what happens when some of the country’s strongest and fittest women navigate motherhood.
For those of you who drink coffee not just for the much needed caffeine boost to help you get through the day, but because you actually enjoy the taste and aroma, then the London Coffee Festival is a must for you to visit. This year the #festival returns to The Old Truman Brewery on the 7th-10th of April with new features including an #espresso martini party, a coffee food pairing and the school of chocolate. There will be over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls, tastings and demonstrations, interactive workshops, street food, coffee based cocktails, live music and art exhibitions. Visitors will also be able to gain access to Milk & Sugar, showcasing some of London’s cutting edge #fashion, design and lifestyle and #wellbeing brands. How many cups of coffee do you drink in a day?
Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear is an exhibition on at the V&A that tells the colourful story of underwear throughout history, and will be showing from the 16th of April to 12th March 2017. More than 200 examples of underwear will be on display and the exhibition explores themes of innovation and luxury, from the custom-made such as a rare example of home-made ‘stays’ worn by a working woman in England in the 18th century, to pieces by designers such as Stella McCartney, La Perla and Paul Smith. The development of the bra, corsets as a means of improving medical conditions and floral embroidered stockings worn by Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII are among the highlights of this revealing exhibition.
