‘LA Hook Up’ Review

LA hook up launch party    16.02.2018

It’s rare to attend an event, which has a feel of the start of something special.  Such was the launch of LA hook up.

It is a fantastic venue, in the heart of Queeropolis. Hidden plainly in sight, it boasts a large, stylishly understated room with bar. From its beautiful windows the whole length of Old Compton Street can be seen.

There was a real party vibe in the room, with a glass of bubbly on arrival and a shot of tequila included in the £10 admission price. Guests were encouraged to bring their own tipple with mixers supplied for free.

The atmosphere was a winning combination of friendly and flirtatious, with a varied selection of every type, age and race of lesbian. There was music and a bit of dancing.  Lots of looking and a bit of romancing! The hosts were helpful and unobtrusive, letting everyone just get on with what they’d come to do…meet new women!

It’s a subtle balance managing a new event in a new venue…  This one’s a winner.  The organizers plan to host the event bi-monthly. … Can’t wait for the next one.

‘Hilda and Virginia’ Review

Hilda and Virginia Jermyn Theatre 01/03/2018

What a great little theatre Jermyn Street Theatre is. Tucked away behind Piccadilly Circus…it’s intimate and friendly with cutting edge programming.

“Hilda and Virginia” are two plays about two very different women,  written with a sure hand by accomplished playwright and poet Maureen Duffy.

These monologues explore the life and experiences of Hilda, a sixth century abbess, and Virginia Woolf, writer and founder member of the Bloomsbury set. Hilda and Virginia’s contrasting and fascinating lives are revealed through interesting facts, garlanded with poetic flair.

Monologues are always a challenge for the actor, and although I was not always convinced by her characterization I thought Sarah Crowden had a good stab at it.

Maureen Duffy devotees will not want to miss this literary treat and the Jermyn Street Theatre is definitely one to watch!
