BLUSH at the Soho Theatre
Sponsored Listing
Award-winning play, BLUSH by Charlotte Josephine, transfers to Soho Theatre following sold out performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. ‘She just needs to understand that it’s not her fault, that she’s not to blame, that she’s not a slut.’ Three women and two men swim in shame. Everyone’s exposed. Everyone wants revenge. No one’s talking about it. Five candid stories about image-based sexual abuse and all its many victims.
16th May – 3rd June, Soho Theatre, 21 Dean St, W1D 3NE. Tickets from £10, book online here
Urban Village Fete
Sponsored Listing
Forget raffles, tombolas and coconut shies – there’s a whole new kind of fête happening this Sunday as Urban Village Fete returns to Greenwich Peninsula. Think Gilles Peterson on the decks, street food from The Cheese Truck, CLAW and Eat Live, and boutique pop-ups for your wardrobe and your home.
Sunday 21st May from 12-7pm, free entry. Peninsula Square, Greenwich Peninsula, SE10 0ES
Tratra at the BoundaryManhattan at the BFI
#UJLoves a sunny evening spent on the rooftop with a cocktail, and now we’ve got a new reason to do it. Meaning ‘traditional with a twist’, Tratra is the Boundary’s new opening from Stéphane Reynaud (Ripailles, Pork & Sons & Terrine) – his first outside Paris. It’s a chic basement haunt with a meat-focused menu, and the clue is in the name; think French classics with a modern spin. Woody Allen’s classic comedy Manhattan is one that needs to be seen on the big screen – and this weekend is your chance as the BFI are showing it throughout May. Darkly comical and visually stunning, it’s one of Allen’s finest and the perfect Sunday movie.
