Eye on London - New Month, New Stuff To Do

Eye on London - New Month, New Stuff To Do

London from the inside Monday 30th January - Sunday 5th February 2017

February finally! No more dry January, Valentine’s and Pancake Day are coming, it’s Oscar season, and a short month so payday will come around quicker! New month, new stuff to do in London!...

FILMS IN TOWN THIS MONTH

It’s not just the summer months that you can pick an epic venue to watch a classic movie. Places like the Rivoli Ballroom regularly screen movies or if you’ve never been to amazing London cinemas like the IMAX, BFI Southbank or The Greenwich Picturehouse then February should be your month.

  • GoodFellas - BFI Southbank (until 2nd February, also showing elsewhere)
  • Casablanca, Covent Garden Hotel (14th February)
  • The Eagle Huntress, Artsdepot (4th February)

Last chance: Until 31st January the House of MinaLima on Greek Street are exhibiting 40 original graphic art prints from Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them - a film they designed all the graphics for.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

It’s come around again, that ‘should I / shouldn’t I stay up / maybe it will be a snow day tomorrow / I don’t know what’s going on in this sport anyway’ night of the Super Bowl. The New England Patriots play the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI (51) on Sunday kicking off at 11.30pm (UK time) and will last about four hours. Not content with watching it under the duvet on the sofa, here’s where the other true fans will be…

  • Riley’s Sports Bar, Haymarket
  • The Social, Fitzrovia
  • Frankie’s Sports Bar & Diner, Walham Green

BEST OF THE REST

What else you can catch in the capital this week and month...

EYE ON… HOUNSLOW

There are 32 capsules on The Coca-Cola London Eye, representing the 32 London boroughs, so each week we explore a different London borough.

Part of the historic county of Middlesex, Hounslow has been home to many celebs including Phil Collins, Mo Farah, Elvis Costello and The Big bang Theory actor, Kunal Nayyar.

Best pub: Three Magpies, Hounslow

Best breakfast: Greedies, Isleworth

Best coffee: The Coffee Pot, Isleworth

Best curry: Indian Relish, Hounslow

Best fact: Sir Thomas Morris, a distant relative of Bernard Matthews, set up his chicken farming empire in Hounslow in 1756. He used his wealth to set up a school for local underprivileged children, believing that every child had the right to education.

ON THIS DAY… 5th February 1953

Sweet rationing ends in Britain after 10 years and schoolchildren are the first in the queue for unlimited sweets and chocolate.
