3-pumpkins

With Halloween creeping in, we’ve got so many frightfully wonderful things to look forward to that it’s hard to contain our excitement. Fancy dress, tonnes of sweets, the black bun Halloween Whopper at Burger King… and pumpkin carving, of course! Back in the day, pumpkin carving was simple. You cut the top off, scooped out the insides, cut three triangles on the front (two eyes …

“Try to imagine it as an adventure, all sorts of things might happen.” E.E. Nesbitt, The Railway Children That The Railway Children should be brought to life anywhere other than King’s Cross seems unimaginable, but even more unimaginable is how well the space at the King’s Cross Theatre plays host to the story, over a century after its initial publication.

Wowcher Does a Cocktail Making Class @ Dice Bar

cocktail3

We sent Emily to Dice Bar for a marvellous cocktail making class, where she learnt how to mix, shake and stir like a master… Though I thoroughly (and I mean thoroughly) enjoy drinking them, the klutz in me has ensured I steer clear of actually making cocktails at all costs. Tragically, I lack the coordination and flair needed to successfully create such tasty, beautiful beverages …
