Michael Morpurgo on War Horse at the New London Theatre

Yesterday I wrote about The Play That Goes Wrong being the perfect show to take reluctant theatre-goers to due to the guaranteed belly laughs. As a more serious option, the other go-to choice I recommend whenever people ask me what THE RUDDY HELL to see, is always War Horse.

Perched on the corner of Romilly Street and Greek Street, right in the heart of Soho lies Kettner’s. Adding to the salubrious history of Soho, Kettner’s comes equipped with its own tales of glitz and glamour. Originally opening as a restaurant back in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, (who just happened to be the chef to Napoleon III, casually) the list of the famous and fabulous who have supped, dined and danced here is truly amazing. Oscar Wilde was a huge fan and Agatha Christie and  ...
