In the fourth of my Club To Club interviews I caught up with Lorenzo Senni, an artist who is universally respected within Italy and outside of his home nation. His experimentation with trance music, and his leftfield take on electronic music in general has placed him in an enviable position as one of Italy’s most [...]

The Mayhew animal rescue centre in North West London is holding its annual carol concert, this Tuesday, at St Johns Church in Hammersmith.
Billed as “Tinsels & Tails’ it kicks off the festive season in style. Drawing the support of animal loving celebs like Peter Egan, Bill Bailey and XYZ, it’s a chance to toast the [...]

How long will fashion journalists feel the need to explain that? Possibly a good while longer if houses continue to come up with inventive names to mask the issue they all seem to have with “pre”.
The Government may insist winter doesn’t start until December 21st (which is why they can have an Autumn Statement this month) but winter has definitely arrived everywhere else outside Westminster. On Sunday night we had our coldest night in London all year – in fact last winter was so mild I think it might have [...]
