 … now that the first May bank holiday is over, at UJHQ that means all eyes now are firmly set on Ibiza (and summer in general). We’re thinking about Greece too, and are excited to see how San Giorgio and Scorpios in Mykonos evolve over the years, with the new Soho House backing. We’re also excited to start looking into some more off-the-beaten-track destinations, with Comporta in Portugal being high on our list. Other than that, it’s a four day week! Enjoy.

We’re making an exception
On UJ we don’t often touch on kids things, but after being drawn off the street and into this store by these BRIGHT and amazing patterns, we had to know more about this brand. Known for their commitment to sustainability, this is a feel-good label that is FUN and looks great too. One of Scandi’s fastest growing kids brands, if you have a small one to buy for, get ye self down to Westbourne Grove to have a look.

Education, Education, Education
31 May – 29 June
A celebration of education in the ‘90s (pre iPhones and Harry Potter), this razor sharp show is filled with more hits than ‘Now that’s what I call 1997’, including the The Spice Girls and Oasis. Irreverent humour and creative theatricality are used to dissect education and responsibility at the beginning of Blair’s Britain in ‘97, highlighting issues that are still relevant today via ‘90s fun. On for a strictly limited four-week run, book now.

We’re seeing a lot of movement these days on the restaurant front. Soho’s Blanchette has popped up in Mauritius, NY’s Scarpetta is headed here, and Paris’ Big Mamma Group looks to bring another Italian trattoria, this time via Sicily, to Fitzrovia in June… plus many more.
