Start with a cocktail: in fact, make SEEN’s a Christmas Japanese Punch, which sounds like perfect fusion cuisine – Appleton Rum, Takara Plum Wine, Cognac, Ground Cinnamon, Blackberries, Cranberries, Blood Orange and Apple served with crushed ice.

Move on to festive Pre-Dinner Canapés. There are 2 menus for this part of your celebration, based on whether you want 4 or 6 canapés per guest. Again, glorious fusion food is the order of the day: Hot Miso Chips, Yellowtail Sashimi, Turkey Lollipops with Creamy Yuzu aji Amarillo, Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Lobster Ceviche and Turkey Breast Kushiyaki with Wasabi Sauce all sound mouthwatering.

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.
