Week-ends in London are back to hectic and fun and here are my kids list of favourites in no particular order: (i) Heather Phillipson at Tate Britain: audacious and very topical, expansive and immersive with its multimedia, sculpture, music, poetry and digital (free but you need to pre-book, on until January 2022); (ii) Magritte met lobsters and Andy Wharhol with Philip Colbert’s Lobsteropolis at Saatchi Galleries (ended June 6th ) and (iii) The Art in the Age of Now at Fulham Townhall (free but you need to pre-book, extended to June 20th): grand and derelict, 100 local artists present in here thought provoking and surreally beautiful installations, feels like Berlin came to London.

The 8 years olds though were not impressed with Zanele Muholi at Tate Modern (ended May 31st)- on this one just the adults have appreciated the brutal questioning and material for thought. V&A and Science Museum are thankfully back on the menu (pre-book your slots!). Opera Holland Park is also back in the hood and we are counting down to Traviata! A tradition for years and what a blessing to have Opera Holland Park back for the summer!

What else have we been up to recently ? English vineyards have been also on our lists, past springs we were wandering at Chateaux hotels in France, in 2021 we are discovering the best of organic sparklings and roses and so far, so good, kids loved their run around in the vineyards and us our tasting sessions.
