I do love a good landmark, especially if it has an interesting history. And these ones... well, they might not be real as such, but the stories are pretty good anyway. Have a look: http://londoncalling.com/features/top-5-fake-london-landmarks.
It's January. You're poor. Allow me to torment you with a list of some of the great shows you'll want to buy tickets for this year: http://londoncalling.com/features/theatre-to-look-forward-to-in-2017.
Anyone else fancy a wander off the beaten tourist track? Have a read of my latest London Calling feature to find out about these brilliant attractions that have been hiding in plain sight (and/or zone 8): http://londoncalling.com/features/six-things-you-didnt-know-you-could-do-in-london.
Written for Everything Theatre
Here at Everything Theatre, as our name suggests, we really like our theatre. We like it so much, it’s pretty much all we talk about. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, we do sometimes risk forgetting theatre can be even more awesome when combined with other forms of art. Fortunately, there are plenty of people who specialise in these kinds of crossovers. We caught up with Theatre and Photography author Joel Anderson, who serves as the MA Theatre Criticism and Dramaturgy course leader at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, to talk about what makes these two disciplines such an interesting combo.
Being the massive drama geek that I am, you can sell me on pretty much anything that has a sprinkling of theatre added to it. So, yes, I'm one of these people who really likes themed bars. The weirder, the better. And have I got some weird ones lined up for you! Just head over to London Calling to have a look: http://londoncalling.com/features/londons-themed-bars-and-restaurants
