Mini Review: The Tallis Scholars at St-Martin-in-the-Fields

Hail to the Tallis Scholars, the world’s finest choir of Renaissance music who were in London last night for their first concert in the magnificent St-Martin-in-the-Fields. It was a glorious programme of Antoine Brumel’s 12-part Earthquake Mass, interweaved with sun-centered by American composer David Lang. Lang is one of America’s most-performed composers and his formidable…

My Fair Lady review

Review: My Fair Lady – London Coliseum

My Fair Lady has galloped into the London Coliseum this May, and it’s a bloomin’ loverly production. It’s the first major West End revival of the show for 21 years and comes to us via The Lincoln Center Theater and Broadway. It’s brilliantly directed by Bartlett Sher with rising star Amara Okereke as Eliza Doolittle…

Londoness Loves May 2022

Review: Jodie Comer in Prima Facie

I have just witnessed Jodie Comer performing a feat which even nine lives Villanelle wouldn’t be able to pull off: a one-hundred-minute solo performance on stage in Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter theatre, without an interval and hardly pausing for breath. She even manages to get drenched, dry off, change outfits – and accents…

Hever Castle

Hever Castle: Anne Boleyn’s Childhood Home

Last updated on March 25th, 2022I do enjoy a jaunt outside of London. Throw in a castle, anything about Henry VIII and a historical pub, and I’m there quicker than you can throw a jousting stick. And Hever Castle in Kent isn’t just any old castle. It was the Boleyn family seat and Anne Boleyn’s…
