Music is indeed nothing new at sketch. When it opened its doors in 2003, founder and restaurateur Mourad Mazouz brought his passion for music with him and introduced French electro sounds from the underground to the West End. Thirteen years on, sketch remains a leading destination for music; one can expect to hear a variety of sounds from deep house and electro-pop to reggae, fusing different genres and thus creating one of the leading music programmes in London.

The music talks, which will run monthly from 12th September 2016 until February 2017, coincide with the V&A’s You say you want a revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970 exhibition, which explores music as a catalyst of the mass revolution that has shaped our society since the 60s. Its curator, Geoffrey Marsh, will be a guest speaker.

To launch a year in Music, sketch combines a three-course lunch in the two Michelin-starred Lecture Room & Library with an exhibition ticket for You say you want a revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970 at the V&A. Guests will take away a bespoke goody bag by Parisian Perfumer, Diptyque.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
