Picasso portraits

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some complimentary tickets to see Picasso Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery this weekend. The exhibition spans 6 October 2016 to 5 February 2017 and it really is a ‘must-see’, there are over 80 works including portraits of his wife Olga , his friends and lovers. This show was far from ordinary and encompassed many early self-portraits, caricatures, sculptures and experiments in style. I particularly enjoyed the brief snapshot into his family life shown via a black and white short film.

Advance booking is highly recommended, it is worth noting the first 100 tickets every Friday for this exhibition are just £5.

Somerset House Film4 Summer Screen

IMG_6920I was gutted to miss out last year. I mentally noted after viewing several friends instagrams how special this outdoor cinema experience looked. Not wanting to make the same mistake again, I set an alarm and diarised the ticket release date. The summer screenings are being held in August from the 4th until the 17th, there is a mix of red carpet premieres, recent hits and iconic movies. See here for more film info.IMG_6943

Doors open at 18:30 and film viewings start at approximately 21:00 when the sun has started to go down. Our film of choice was 90s classic 10 Things I Hate About You. We were greeted with a DJ set from U SUCK who aptly played all the gems from the 90s including classic hits such as the Backstreet boys.

There was plenty of time to set up shop, bag a great location and picnic our little hearts out (we decided to get our goodies from M&S).

Can you believe there were two of us?  We made friends with our blanket neighbours and shared some of our supplies. Sharing is caring!

Lessons learnt:

  1. Next year more cushions and pillows need to be packed because those cold cobbles under bum are not forgiving.
  2. Book again for next year- same again please!! Amazing night. Not to be missed.

Electric Cinema Shoreditch

This is one of my favourite finds to date. I love the cinema and this is the most romantic and comfortable one I have been to (complete with cashmere blankets). Great food and drinks available too. I recommend their bloody mary and nachos – perfect combo!

V&A

The V&A is one of my favourite museums.

IMG_6465It was awarded The Art Fund Museum of the Year 2016 prize- a accolade truly deserved.  The annual museum prize, the largest in the world, recognises the outstanding innovation, imagination and achievements of one museum throughout the preceeding year.

I love the central piece of art that greets you as soon as you walk through the revolving doors.

 

IMG_6460There are numerous exhibitions on at the moment but I really want to get tickets for “Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear”. It is on until Sunday 12 March 2017. For more information look at http://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/undressed-a-brief-history-of-underwear.

 

Even if you do not have hours of time or exhibition tickets- there are plenty of rooms to look around…
