Hotels in London Offering Discounts for Boat Race

At the end of this month, Britain’s two most famous universities will once again compete in one of the country’s oldest, most beloved sporting fixtures, the annual boat race. Some 250,000 spectators are expected to line the route, with 120 million more watching on television screens around the world.

Sponsored by investment firm BNY Mellon, this year’s race takes place at 4.30pm on Sunday 31st March. Launching at Putney Bridge , between Fulham and Putney, the two crews will chart the same 4.25 mile course the race has always followed, through some of the loveliest stretches of the River Thames.

Organizers and fans alike are hoping there will be no repeat of last year’s fiasco, during which a man disrupted the oarsmen of the Oxford crew by swimming across their path. The man was later jailed for public nuisance, and the race restarted, finally resulting in a win for Cambridge. The result pushed the Light Blues further into their overall lead of 81 wins, compared to Oxford’s 76 wins.

A number of London’s finest pubs and restaurants line this stretch of the river, and big screens will be erected for the gathered crowds who couldn’t find a table. This year also sees the return of food stalls, family attractions and a beer tent next to the south stand of Fulham FC’s Craven Cottage.

To mark the occasion, LondonTown.com have partnered with a number of hotels in London, all on or near to the river. Among the deals on offer is the Jurys Inn Chelsea Hotel London, which is around a 25 minute walk from the start of the race. When booking via LondonTown.com, travelling race fans can take advantage of a 71% discount on double rooms, a reduction that brings the cost of a night’s stay down to £74.

The Holiday Inn Express Wandsworth is situated in Smuggler’s Way. Less than 5 minutes walk from the riverbank, the hotel is offering accessible double rooms at a 50% discount, with rates starting from £66 pounds per night.

An Audience with Mr. Nice at the Bloomsbury Theatre

This March 26th, Howard Marks – aka Mr. Nice – will bring his hugely popular one-man show back to the stage. For one night only,An Audience With Mr. Nice will be packing in Marks’ legion of fans to the Bloomsbury Theatre, in aid of homeless charity Crisis.

Britain’s most prominent advocate for the legalization of marijuana is now 67, and his life story makes for a fascinating listen. Born in Kenfig Hill, a small coal mining village in South Wales, Marks finagled his way through a physics degree at Oxford and taught philosophy before embarking on a dazzling criminal career that included a stint working for the Secret Service as an informer.

Treading a fine line between the underworld and the establishment, Marks has been affiliated with the Mafia, IRA, MI6 and the CIA. His primary line of work was as a drug smuggler, a career that eventually saw him jailed for seven years in the US. Marks has used up to 43 different aliases, but it was the purchase of a passport from convicted killer Donald Nice that gave him the moniker that stuck. His 1995 autobiography of the same name became a bestseller, and was made into a film starring Rhys Ifans. Marks went on to write three more books, sealing his status as an anti-hero for Generation X.

Marks has spent much of the past fifteen years touring his life-story around university towns, and has won critical plaudits for An Audience With Mr. Nice. Tickets for the Bloomsbury event cost £15, and are available via LondonTown.com. The capital’s premier events and booking site has also announced discounts on local accommodation, with numerous cheap London hotels participating in the deal for the night of the show.

One of the hotels on offer is the Hilton London Euston Hotel, which is currently offering a 71% discount on deluxe double rooms, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to £113. The Hilton is located in Woburn Place, a short walk from the Bloomsbury Theatre.

Also on Woburn Place is the Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel, which is offering double rooms from £119 per night, which is a 28% discount on the standard nightly rate.

Both hotels featured are available at the discount exclusively when booking through LondonTown.com. For more cheap London hotels, and to purchase tickets for An Audience With Mr. Nice, visit the website.

David Bowie ‘Is’ at the V & A

This March 23rd, the V & A launches an all-encompassing look back at the life and career of David Bowie. The exhibition, David Bowie Is, will feature costumes, lyric sheets, instruments, photographs, video and memorabilia. The exhibition will run from March 23rd until July 28th.

More than sixty outfits spanning Bowie’s fifty year career will be exhibited. Highlights include the outlandish costumes designed for the Ziggy-era tours, clean zoot suits and canes from the Thin White Duke period, and the Union Jack coat Bowie co-designed with Alexander McQueen for the cover of 1997’s Earthling album.

By taking the visitor through each period of the constantly-evolving sideshow that is Bowie’s career, the exhibition follows his journey from a Brixton babyboomer (born David Robert Jones) onto early attempts at r & b success with the King Bees, through the hippy era (when Bowie discovered a fondness for mime) and onto massive commercial success with his innovative seventies albums and stage shows.

The exhibition also takes a look at Bowie’s immersion into celluloid. An early exponent of the music video, and a perfectly decent actor (notching up starring roles in The Man Who Fell to Earth and Labyrinth), Bowie is shown in all his screen glory across the exhibition.

Tickets for David Bowie Is range from £10.60 for kids and students up to £17.30 for adults. Bookings can be made via LondonTown.com. The site has also announced deals on hotels close to the V & A. The offers are available exclusively through LondonTown.com.

Several well located London hotels are taking part in the deal, including The Ampersand Hotel on Harrington Road which is giving guests a 40% on double rooms, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to just £135. Newly refurbished, the Ampersand is only 4 minutes’ walk from the V & A.

Closer still is the Rembrandt Hotel London. When booking via LondonTown.com, you can take advantage of a 75% discount on double rooms, making the cost of a stay only £99. Both London hotels featured here are available at the discount exclusively through LondonTown.com – visit the site for more information.

Rowing Season Kicks Off With Head of the River Race

This year’s Head of the River Race will take place on Saturday March 23rd. The first major rowing event on the 2013 calendar, the competition is effectively a warm-up for the annual Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race. The race follows the exact same course as its more famous counterpart, but in reverse, starting in Mortlake and ending up at Putney Bridge.

A total of 420 crews will traverse the 4.25 mile course through some of London’s most beautiful spots, taking in the most iconic stretches of the Thames along the way. Proceedings are expected to get underway around 11am. As usual, the pubs and restaurants that line the route will be full to the rafters, so travelling boat race fans are well-advised to book a table early if they want to witness the action.

While it may not have the cachet of the Oxbridge contest, the Head of the River Race still regularly attracts visitors from all over the world. This year, a number of hotels in London have teamed up with booking website LondonTown.com to offer significant discounts. Each of the participating hotels is dotted along the route.

Among the hotels in London taking part in the offer, the Jurys Inn Chelsea Hotel London, just off the King’s Road, is offering a 71% discount on their standard rate for double rooms. The discount brings the cost of a stay down to just £74.

The Holiday Inn Express Wandsworth is situated in Smuggler’s Way, less than 5 minutes walk from the riverside. When booking through LondonTown.com, accessible double rooms are now available with a 50% discount, making the cost of a night’s stay just £66.

Get your own, Homeslice

Those looking to while away a few hours in central London will have a new place to accidentally stumble upon in the warren of Neal’s Yard and its surrounding environs: Homeslice, former pop-up and brainchild of Kiwi chef Ry Jessup, is now building a permanent home for itself.

The restaurant, a simple pizza joint, will open this month at 13 Neal’s Yard, the smart little triangle accessed behind Neal Street and just off Seven Dials in buzzy Covent Garden, central London. It looks set to join the ever-expanding list of restaurants in London doing ‘posh’ dirty food with fresh, well-sourced ingredients.

Homeslice opens on March 25th and food trendy fans who snapped up some of its pizza at Kings Cross’ The Filling Station will no doubt have already got the date in their diaries.

The venture, a 50-seater restaurant sees Jessup blend his culinary skills with Mark Wogan’s business know-how to create a simple, 5-dish pizza menu with the emphasis on surprising flavours and simple booze.

A little pricey for pizza – though probably not so extravagant for Covent Garden, nor the trend-hungry foodies who seem to follow new fast food joints as they appear across town – it’s £4 a slice, or £20 a whole pizza.

Better news is that wine is on tap – well, more or less. Huge double magnum carafes of the house red and house white allow customers to measure how much they drink and pay later. A smart take on the honesty bar, for want of a better comparison!

A pint, a glass of wine and a slice all carry the same neat price: £4. As for the pizzas, it’s about 5 rotating flavours daily. Expect light, expert dough, kneaded on their special marble work surface and cooked in a wood-fired oven.

Flavour combinations comprise the sweet and simple – a classic Margherita, always on the menu – with the more extravagant or surprising: artichoke and courgette or bone marrow, fire roasted spring onion and watercress are the more unusual toppings on offer.

The Homeslice homepage (fun to say after one of those double magnums of house wine) looks pretty –though rather short on details and much activity as of now. Still, we have a feeling that after a few weeks up and running the online presence will be a busy as most popular pop-up outlets of recent years.

Rock’n’roll raises money for cancer in London

Music fans looking to see some musical legends in action and put their cash towards a good cause will be delighted to hear of the return of the Teenage Cancer Trust annual series of concerts.

Back at the Royal Albert Hall in London’s Kensington district, this spring the opulent Victorian venue will host six wondrous nights of music and a star-studded comedy evening.

For 2013 Teenage Cancer Trust patron Roger Daltrey (formerly on The Who) has invited another musician to handpick the roster – for the first time in the concerts’ history.

Daltrey, currently on tour with The Who in the USA, and has therefore bestowed responsibility to the former Oasis guitarist and singer Noel Gallagher, who has certainly risen to the occasion.

Kicking off the week-long bonanza is American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams with special guest Beth Orton, whose cover version of Gallagher’s Wonderwall is arguably better than the original, followed by a night of stand-up with Russell Brand, Noel Fielding and a cluster of other top comedians.

Fans of Britpop will enjoy a special Saturday night Oasis-verses-Blur-style concert that sees Gallagher perform on the same stage as special guests Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon, as well as Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys.

Look out for Primal Scream, Echo and the Bunnymen and Rizzle Kicks too. Those coming up and looking for London hotels to make their stay should turn to LondonTown.com.

Save 45% on the opulent Baglioni Hotel London, with a Deluxe Double at this elegant five star hotel on Hyde Park available at LondonTown.com from £309. Or opt for the contemporary comfort and style of the Fifty Four Boutique Hotel on Queen’s Gate where a massive 65% discount means doubles can be picked up from £105.

Birmingham Royal Ballet bring Aladdin to London

Pantomime season may be over, but that doesn’t stop some of the nation’s favourite fairy tales and fables coming to the stage. From Matthew Bourne – currently touring – to the Brighton return of Christmas favourites 1927 company with their acclaimed The Animals and Children Took to the Streets, it’s a good time for spectacular shows.

And in this strange in-between time somewhere lost between winter and spring, having a pick-me-up courtesy of a bit of theatrical escapism seems to be the order of the day.

Little surprise, then, that Birmingham’s Royal Ballet’s winter favourite Aladdin will be bringing an extravagantly-designed magical Arabian world to the London Coliseum.

The tale of love, sorcery and triumph is brought to life through David Bintley’s choreography and music by Carl Davis. This adaptation of the much-loved story returns to its original narrative, with its background in the Arabian Tales of 1001 Nights and links to ancient Chinese stories.

Having first been created for the National Ballet of Japan, Bintley’s Aladdin now comes to London as part of its UK premiere tour, stopping at the Coliseum from 20th -24th March.

Looking to find hotels near Charing Cross? Let the unique HotelMap application be your guide; there’s over 60% off the 5* Chancery Court hotel on New Oxford Street, £240 for a double room on March 21st.

Rutherford and Son Comes to Rose Theatre

This March 19th, the Rose Theatre in Kingston will play host to familial drama Rutherford and Son. Set in the Northern England of the Edwardian era, the play takes an unflinching, gripping look at an industrial Edwardian family on the brink of collapse. A National Theatre poll chose it as one of the Hundred Greatest Plays of the Century.

The drama centres on glassmaker John Rutherford, a tyrannical patriarch who ignores the ambitions and feelings of his family in favour of ensuring the survival of the titular family business. The pressure of working and living together soon begins to pall, and Rutherford’s authority is increasingly challenged by a mutineering family.

Variously described as uncompromising, gritty and deeply human, legendary director Sir Jonathan Miller has breathed new life into Rutherford and Son whose cast includes Barrie Rutter in the lead role.Rutter is also the artistic director for the company putting on the production Northern Broadsides.

The initial ten day run of two daily performances is perfectly suited to the Rose Theatre, an 850 seat venue that opened in 2008. Taking its design cues from Elizabethan architecture, The Rose Theatre has proved a hit with audiences and performers alike. Tickets for Rutherford and Son range from £20-£23. LondonTown.com is helping out-of-towners find an affordable hotel in London for the duration of the show, by offering discounts at nearby establishments.

One notable hotel in London taking part in the deal is the Richmond Gate Hotel, which is giving guests an 86% discount on double rooms, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to just £70. The Richmond Gate is less than 3 miles from the Rose Theatre.

The Kingston Lodge Hotel in Kingston Hill is less than 30 minutes’ walk from the theatre. When booking now via LondonTown.com, you can take advantage of a 36% discount on double rooms, making the cost of a stay only £109.

London hosts ‘The Oscars of the design world’

What do the Shard, the recent movie adaptation of Anna Karenina, and Southbank Centre installation success A Room for London have in common?

They are all nominees for the Designs of the Year awards 2013 – an annual celebration of the most innovative and exciting offerings that the design world (in all its forms) has offered over the past twelve months.

Happily, the public can see all the contenders and make their own mind up from 20 th March. London’s Design Museum will be host to all the nominations until 7th July. The winner will be announced to the public on 17th April 2013.

With seven categories and a high profile judging panel, it’s billed as the Oscars of the design world, and quite rightly so. Covering architecture, fashion, furniture and transport, you can see the most cutting-edge designs from clothing to cars.

You can expect to see Jacqueline Durran’s Anna Karenina Costumes, and Renzo Piano’s blueprints for London Bridge’s gargantuan Shard in the Design Museum, as well as lesser-known but equally celebrated offerings from around the world.

It’s Sausage Time with Harry Hill in Hammersmith

This Spring, the Hammersmith Apollo will vibrate with the sound of squeaking brothel creepers and uproarious laughter as madcap comic Harry Hill brings his unique perspective on the world to London’s West End.

One of the most enduring and recognisable faces on British telly, Harry Hill manages to eschew much of his cuddly Saturday night persona during his live shows, delivering a strange, dark – if still technically family-friendly – performance to hardcore fans, as well as whoever they’ve managed to drag along to witness something truly unique.

The high collars and multiple pens are still there, but Sausage Time offers a more ambitious spectacle than in previous years. Backing band The Harrys are along for the ride, as is estranged son Gary. Other weird segments include a dedication to Tonga, a chance to find out about Nan’s latest ailments, and of course a dour appearance from stolid companion Stouffer the Cat.

But it’s the straight stand-up that keeps the critics happy. Hill is deft at flitting between different routines, a true master of the call-back. He switches between ‘bits’ in a remarkable, quickfire fashion that overcomes the essential contrivance of a stand-up staple. No mention has been made of the presence (or otherwise) of any sausages, but fans can find out come March 26 th , when Harry’s sole Apollo show hits the stage at 8pm. Tickets cost around £30, and are available via HotelMap.com. The site has also announced details of discounted London hotels close to the theatre.

The Holiday Inn Express London Hammersmith is one of the hotels participating in the offer. Just 7 minutes’ walk from the Apollo, the hotel is now giving a 49% discount to patrons who book through HotelMap. The reduced rate brings the cost of a night’s stay down to just £86.

The Hilton London Olympia (around fifteen minutes’ walk from the Apollo) is offering doubles at a 75% discount, making the cost of a night’s stay just £68. Both deals are available exclusively through HotelMap. Both London hotels featured are only available at the discounted rate when booking through the site.

The Script Hit the O2

For two nights only, Irish band The Script will bring their brand of alternative rock to London, with a brace of shows at the O2 Arena later this month. The shows form part of the group’s world tour, which the band are embarking on to support their third album, entitled simply #3.

The Dublin trio has been a going concern for more than ten years. But it took until 2008 for them to find mainstream success with their debut album, The Script. Since then, they have collaborated with stars including will.i.am, U2, Take That and Paul McCartney, and played to an ecstatic – and growing – fan base in stadiums around the world.

The new tour sees the band take in cities across the UK, before setting out across the globe to promote the album. So far, UK dates include Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Sheffield, Birmingham, Cardiff, Brighton and the Isle of Wight (for the island’s eponymous festival).

The O2 gigs will take place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd March. Tickets start from £29.50, and doors open at 6.30pm. Events and booking website LondonTown.com has announced details of discounted London hotels in the area, all of them close to the O2 Arena. The discounts are available exclusively through LondonTown.com.

One of the participating London hotels is the Ibis London Docklands. A budget chain hotel around ten minutes’ walk from the O2, the Ibis is offering a reduced rate for those booking now through LondonTown.com. The 72% discount brings the already-reasonable room rate down to just £54 per night.

The Radisson Blu Edwardian New Providence Wharf ups the ante slightly on the comfort stakes, but is nearly as affordable as the Ibis when taking into account the discount. When booking through LondonTown.com, double rooms are available at a 53% discount. The reduced rate makes the cost of a night’s stay only £175. Less than fifteen minutes’ walk from the O2.

The Holiday Inn Express at Greenwich, also around fifteen minutes’ walk from the gig, is offering double rooms at a 42% discount, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to just £121.

All featured London hotels are only available at the discounted rates when booking through LondonTown.com. Visit the site for more information on The Script at the O2 Arena, and to find more discounted London hotels.
