With the winter drawing in, we at The Insider are giving you our top tips forhow to make the most of this November! Check out our highlights from what’s going on in the capital.
Ice Skating with Tiffany & Co at Somerset House (from November 23rd)
Opening November 23rd, Ice Skating at Somerset House is one of our favourite winter activities - and a great place for a romantic evening rendezvous beneath the starry winter sky!
Bond Street Christmas Lights (Thursday November 18th)
One of the highlights of the festive season, the Christmas light switch-on sees Bond Street transformed into a real Lapland. With a light snow shower guaranteed, London is ready to welcome Santa and his (real) Reindeers!
Thanksgiving at Flemings (Thursday November 25th)
We’re looking forward to Thanksgiving at Flemings here at The Insider. From tempting turkey to perfect pumpkin pie, the special Thanksgiving menu has it all. Join us to celebrate on Thursday November 25th.
The reasons for the enduring popularity of this early 20th century artist are celebrated in this Tate Modern exhibition, the first of his work in the UK for over 50 years!
Two Trevor Nunn shows – Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong and Les Miserables 25th Anniversary
Our theatre picks for November both come from the inimitable Trevor Nunn. His classic, Les Mis, is celebrating 25 years in the capital – a run which is testament to the enduring popularity of this stage show.
Making its debut on the stage this autumn, Birdsong is adapted from the novel of the same name from Sebastian Faulks’ international bestselling First World War trilogy. This beautiful and terrible story about love, courage and the endurance of the human spirit is a real must see.
Pioneering Painters at the Royal Academy (From October 30th) and The Glasgow Boys at The Fleming Collection (until December 18th)
This November, you have two opportunities to view work from the influential Glasgow school of artists. You can read about when The Insider attended the opening night at The Fleming Collection here.
To learn more about these fascinating artists, The Fleming Collection are offering two lunchtime talks centred around the exhibition. Roger Billcliffe, author of the Glasgow Boys, will give a talk and be signing his book on Tuesday 9 November from 1 – 2 pm. On Wednesday 17th November you can learn more about the artists featured in the collection at 1.10pm.
