It’s been a great year for playing tourist in your own town, especially if you really hate people.
This month, absorb some Christmassy magic with festive theatre, spellbinding light installations, seasonal markets and Father Christmas-infused fun.
This month, wrap up warm and enjoy outdoor light installations, wintry trails and magical ice rinks… or cuddle up at home with some festive (virtual) theatre.
This month, meet the Indigenous Peoples of the Arctic at the British Museum’s new immersive exhibition and frolic among the sculptures at Frieze in the park.
All that was left was for me to get over myself and my crippling fear of… well, most things, and just get on the sodding boat.
This particular day was so unbearably hot there was literally only about 10 minutes where at least one of us wasn’t crying or shouting.
The museum’s literal and metaphorical centrepiece is the Coronis, a narrowboat built by the same company that built the Titanic.
V&A exhibitions are generally always worth a punt. I mean I can’t remember ever coming out of anything they’ve put on and going “well that was shit”.
I can probably think of 100 museums I’d rather go to and the majority of them would be considerably cheaper than this one.
I know it must cost a lot of money to preserve all this old crap, but they could at least put some effort into making a half-decent event.
