Wimbledon at Old Spitalfields Market

seen-london

Tennis fans are spoilt for choice this year in the capital. SEEN hears that on July 14th, to celebrate one of the most exciting matches in tennis, the Men’s Semi-Finals at Wimbledon, Old Spitalfields Market is dedicating its July night market to creating a ‘Wimbledon away from Wimbledon’.

July 14th will see the iconic market transformed into the ultimate viewing space. Designed with its own Murray Mound – artificial grass to create a real sense of Wimbledon, surrounded by classic white picket fencing with deck chairs placed for the ultimate view on the big screen, it’s the perfect place to watch the match of the day. Old Spitalfields Market certainly has the space for this tennis-related transformation. It should be great fun.

Mirroring a true Wimbledon experience, guests will also be able to purchase strawberries & cream, Pimms, Champagne and Cucumber Sandwiches. How very British…

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
