SEEN loves immersive theatre, particularly with horror elements and couldn’t wait to see The Gap in the Light at the New Diorama Theatre up near Great Portland Street. All audience members were informed by one of the cast that the auditorium would be plunged into darkness. Indeed we tried it before the performance. It was unsettling but a totally justified effect given the subject matter of the play.

The Fashion Debates – Can Fashion Save the Planet?

If you ever have a chance to visit the Condé Nast College in Greek Street, Soho, then do. Like most buildings in this fast-changing area of London, the frontage is the tip of an iceberg.

As well as running various courses concerned with fashion and commerce, The Condé Nast College also hosts the Fashion Debates, a bi-monthly series of discussions on ethical and sustainable fashion, run by its founder, Olivia Pinnock.
