March 2017 in London
Garden of Light
Paternoster Square is turning yellow as 2,100 handmade daffodils descend on the space to mark the Great Daffodil Appeal 2017, with each flower representing a Marie Curie nurse who provides care and support for people living with terminal illness. The garden features a daffodil meadow and a memory wall where visitors can post messages for loved ones and will be illuminated in the evenings. Find out more about the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal here.
St Patrick's Day in London
Singing, dancing, a parade and a pint or two - the Irish have always known how to party and celebrating St Patrick's Day in London is no exception. St Patrick’s Day in London is a chance for Irish London (and, of course, anyone and everyone who's Irish-at-heart) to hit the streets and show the city the true meaning of the word ‘craic’.
Will this be the last outing for Hugh Jackman's Wolverine, as the actor has seemed to suggest? If it is, he's certainly going out with a bang – lots of them, in fact, as Logan fights and snarls his way through this heavy-handed action epic. But beneath the beatings, some thoughtful, dark themes are explored, making for an atmospheric and very timely blockbuster.
Amy Winehouse Street Art Trail
Produced in collaboration with Global Street Art, the trail features Amy-themed street art by artists such as Captain Kris, Mr Cenz, Philth and Amara Por Dios. The walk leads to a newly commissioned installation at Jewish Museum London by renowned street artist Pegasus called 'Love is a Losing Game'.
