Rodger McPhail at the Rountree Tryon Gallery

One of the most massive perks of writing this ‘ere blog, is getting to attend my fair share of theatre press nights.

Southbank Stroll

Me and some pals wanned to do something t’other night. It was a Friday. We’d finished work for the week. It felt right to celebrate getting through another laborious week in the office. YET we were quite poor and on a time constraint. We scoured Time Out and Londonist and Skint London and all  those other lovely sites that help flailing-fun-hungry (flungry) Londoners and yet couldn’t find anything that cut the mustard (side note- how DOES one cut mustard?
