Hot off the press: new on our site this week

Posted at 10:15 am, November 27, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

Know our site forwards and backwards? Just want the newest stuff we’ve got to offer? Read on for all the great new stuff we’ve put live this week.

For the hungry, our anonymous reviewers have tucked in at Jamie Oliver’s newest opening, Union Jacks; new St. James brasserie, Balcon; a German bakery in Hammersmith, Bakehaus, and Palmers Green patisserie, Baskerville’s Tea Shop, as well as rounding up  South Bank restaurants.

We’ve launched some new area guides, bringing you the best bits of Highgate, and the (slightly overlapping) trifecta of Borough, Bermondsey and London Bridge.

In entertainment, we picked 10 of our favourite comedians on Twitter and interviewed Office co-creator Stephen Merchant, while our film critics’ took a look at Scorcese’s latest, Hugo, The Deep Blue Sea (not the one with the sharks), Moneyball and My Week with Marilyn, while Paul Burston reflected on Aids memoir ‘We Were Here’. We’re also exclusively selling early tickets to Sundance Film Festival’s first appearance in London, next year – grab a few while you still can.

In theatre, we interviewed Eddie Redmayne, and reviewed nine of the latest shows including our pick of the week, Reasons to be Pretty. Plus our art team took a look ahead at the 10 most exciting exhibitions coming to London in 2012.

Meanwhile… Christmas! We’ve got tons of information on our festive hub, and we’ve just added some handy-dandy lists of Christmas markets, Christmas fairs and Christmas open studios for you to peruse. And because sometimes 24 hours of overeating and bad television can be more than enough, we’ve put together a list of attractions that are open on Boxing Day.

Onto the New Year – you might’ve already seen our choice NYE club nights, but if that’s not your bag, we’ve now revealed 12 cool alternative ways to celebrate, including cabaret, comedy and classical. Plus only for the hardcore UK raver – or, we suppose, people who’ve taken it easy the night before in preparation – we’ve got six of the best New Year’s Day parties too.

If the thought of doing all that has left you exhausted, then finally, you can just kick back and enjoy our photo gallery of abandoned London underground stations.
