Buy South London Art

Buying local art not only supports artists in the community, but is a great way to give your home a personal touch.  No more off the shelf Ikea prints for me!  I have recently discovered a few artists who are immortalising in print many of the places that I love in South London, some of […]

Get Fit For Free – Park Run

I started regretting my decision to join Park Run for the first time when I woke up early on a Saturday morning and braved the cold outside.  Abandoned by previously keen friends, who instead opted for a lie in, I headed for Brockwell Park with newly printed bar code in hand.  As soon as I […]

Play Team Sport

If you’ve been meaning to find a local sports club since you moved to South London, or if exercise is one of your new year resolutions let Go Mammoth do the work for you (although not the actual exercise I’m afraid).  They offer a huge variety of team sports including volleyball, football and touch rugby.  I […]

Ritzy Brixton

The Ritzy is the Brixton branch of the Picturehouse chain and is much more than just a cinema, with the bar a venue in its own right.  What’s more, you can take your drink into the screening with you.  This is not the only bonus, the screens all have their own quirks, some small and […]

Fujiyama – Japanese restaurant […]

Bogan Bingo

Forget the traditional bingo hall full of local OAP’s, Bogan Bingo is less about the Bingo and more about the hosts.  Bogan is Australian slang, roughly meaning ‘chav’, and the ‘Bogans’ are your hosts for the night.  Two guys donning mullet wigs, wife beaters and fake tattoos keep you entertained and encourage crowd participation with […]

I love Spain, especially the food, and having lived there briefly I like to think I know a good Tapas when I see (or taste) one.  Tapas is particularly awesome as you get to try lots of different dishes, it’s very social and all about sharing.  With this love for Tapas in mind it had […]

Pie & Mash

Despite growing up in London I had only been to a pie and mash shop once before my recent visit to Harrington’s in Tooting.  On request of my pie loving northern boyfriend we ventured to Selkirk Road to sample this top rated London establishment.  No frills here, but a traditional London pie and mash with […]
