EAT SEE HEAR: Spring Edition
Spring is (sort of) in the air - the evenings are getting longer, the blossoms are starting to bloom, and there's finally a sense of seasonal light at the end of the tunnel.
This means it's time to dust off your alfresco dining boots and discover our top picks for things to EAT, SEE + HEAR this season...
Campania & Jones
Tucked away down a small street off the bustling Columbia Road, Campania is a jewel in the crown of East London's dining scene.
Enjoy an intimate setting and delicious Southern Italian cooking with seasonal, local produce.
23 Ezra St, Columbia Road.
Little Georgia is London's answer to the under-represented, overly-delicious Georgian cuisine.
If you are searching for something a little bit different, with the added benefit of BYOB, then this is the restaurant for you!
Islington - 14 Barnsbury Road, N1 0HB / Hackney - 87 Goldsmiths Row, E2 8QR
Stuffed Supper Clubs
What they lack in size, they make up for in taste. Stuffed offer what's (probably) London's smallest supper club experience with their one table 'restaurant' set-up above their street-food unit at Netil Market.
Started by Ricc, half Italian and London-raised, Stuffed stays true to his father's Italian roots by not messing about when it comes to doing pasta the way it should be done with a 'less is more' approach.
Netil Market, Westgate Street.
Arch 322, Andrews Road.
Mike Nelson: Extinction Beckons
Using a mix of reclaimed materials from scrap yards, junk shops and auction houses, Mike Nelson's Hayward Gallery takeover paints a picture of a parallel, dystopian universe eerily echoing, possibly foreshadowing, our own.
22 Feb – 7 May 2023 @ Hayward Gallery | Book here.
Artist rooms: Diane Arbus
One of the most revered photographers in the field's history, Diane Arbus' work has been heralded by many as the pinnacle of social documentary.
In the Tate's Artist Rooms, the exhibition plots the development of Arbus' early work from the mid '50s to her distinctive square format adopted in '62, including a presentation of 'A Box of Ten Photographs', a rare portfolio of prints produced shortly before her death by suicide in '71.
Until 16th April @ the Tate | Find out more.
Exploring the hidden complexities of the world we live in through a series of impressive light installations, 'Thin Air' is a dynamic exhibition that transforms the cavernous venue of The Beams.

Cecilia Vicuña: Brain Forest Quipu
Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña has created a poignant new artwork for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall as part of the Hyundai Commission.
Made up of mixed media spanning sculpture, sound and video, Brain Forest Quipu is a uniquely collaborative installation, drawing on input from artists, activists and members of the community.
