Neville's Island at Duke of York's Theatre coverTIME AND PLACE:

Tickets: from £15 book online


Neville’s Island follows the misadventures of four out-of-condition, out-of-their-depth businessmen on an out-of-control team-building exercise.

Shipwrecked in the Lake District, menaced by wildlife and with only a sausage between them, our unlikely explorers battle the elements and each other as corporate bonding descends into a hilarious carnival of squabbling, French cricket and cagoules.

This celebrated production of Neville’s Island marks the play’s triumphant return to the West End, 20 years after the play was first seen in London at the Apollo Theatre.

1984 @ Playhouse Theatre / until 23rd August 2014


Mon-Sat 19:30
Wed and Sat matinee 14:30

@ Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Ave, London WC2N 5DE

Tickets: from £19.84 book online


Due to unprecedented demand, the production has been extended until 23 August 2014 (previously 19th July 2014).

George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is one of the most influential novels in recent history, with its chilling depiction of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance and incessant public mind-control.  Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality.

Filtering the spirit and the ambition of the novel through the lens of contemporary culture, this radical new staging explores surveillance culture, identity and how thinking you can fly might actually be the first step to flying.

Kamique Bar @ Covent Garden


Opening Times
Mon – Wed: 12:00 – 23:00
Thu – Sun: 12:00 – 00:00

@ Kamique Bar
63-66 St Martins Lane,


Entry: £FREE

We were invited down to check out a new bar in Covent Garden, hearing the name Kamique Bar we thought we was going to a Hawaiian themed shack. This was far from the case, the venue reminded us of a spruced up Yates.

We sat in the back which was really really RED, it was comfortable and was a great place to chill. The music had us thinking otherwise, wanting to bounce up, ready to party the night away.

We ordered a round of their famous Mojitos which I have to say were really good (try the cucumber mojito, flaming passion fruit and strawberry madness). Food was also ordered however this did not result to be on par to the cocktails, the phad thai was extremely bland and the steak was given well done when ordered medium rare. Service was really slow and at times the order was forgotten.

The majority of the drinks especially the mojitos were prepared well its a shame the food didn’t match.
The prices are what you would expect of a west end bar. It’s definitely worth visiting during happy hour every day 17:00 – 20:00

Kamique is a great place to grab a few drinks before going out, lively with a vibrant place out back to relax after a hard days work.
