A few drops of rain don’t spoil the view from the London Eye on a mid-December evening. Down below, the city is brightly illuminated, boats and bridges are festooned with colourful lights, there are frost fairs and Christmas markets … The festivities have begun!
Umas gotas de chuva não estragam a vista do London Eye numa noite de dezembro. Lá em baixo, a cidade está muito iluminada, os barcos e pontes enfeitados com luzes coloridas, há feiras de natal … As festas já começaram!
One of the pleasures of the autumn months is the Nour Festival of Arts, now in its fourth year. The best of contemporary Middle Eastern and North African arts and culture is divulged throughout the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. As well as exhibitions, films, talks, workshops, performances, literature, music and poetry, there is also a Souk and a Tour Bus.
What would Sir Joshua Reynolds have thought? But it’s true. A small flock of Bowmont Merino sheep have been running circles round the statue of Reynolds in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts. They were brought here to celebrate the RA’s current exhibition, ‘Australia’, and the final weekend of Wool Week.
