The Classic Car Boot Sale

On a whim a couple of weeks ago me and Him went for a mosey to Kings Cross, to investigate the Classic Car Boot Sale. A whim it may have been, but it turned out to be a WHEELY good day (sorry/not sorry). Popping up in London and Hastings a couple of times a year, the Classic Car Boot Sale brings together a whole fleet of Vintage lovers.

In The Heights at Kings Cross Theatre

UM SO HEY GUESS WHAT GUYS?! IN THE HEIGHTS IS AMAZING. Couple of weeks ago I was invited down to the Kings Cross Theatre to catch the Media Night of In The Heights. I saw this production directed by Luke Sheppard when it opened at Southwark Playhouse last year and I was utterly blown away by the energy, talent and vivaciousness (is that a word?
