Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos

As inventive as she is prolific, Rosemarie Trockel’s diverse body of work from the last 30 years is to be exhibited at London’s Serpentine Gallery. From the 13th February to 7th April, ‘Rosemarie Trockel: Cosmos’ will comprise objects and artefacts from different eras and cultures, juxtaposed with the artists own work.

Transferred from New York’s New Museum, where the exhibition launched in October 2012, the show has been described by the New York Times as ‘an elegant, mind-expanding refusal of the standard big-game retrospective’. Knitted paintings – often considered her trademark style – are displayed alongside ceramics and zoological specimens, as well as pieces from outsider artists such as Morton Bartlett and Judith Scot.

The work ranges from videos, paintings and drawings, to sculptures, collages and projects for children. It is not an exhaustive collection of Trockel’s work, but certainly displays the sheer diversity of her canon.

The exhibition has already been installed in its new home at the Serpentine in Kensington Gardens. Travelling art fans can find affordable London hotel accommodation in this most exclusive part of the city by looking at LondonTown.com. The website has announced special offers and discounts on a number of rooms close to Kensington Gardens .

The Corus Hyde Park Hotel London is situated on Lancaster Gate, overlooking Hyde Park (which runs into Kensington Gardens). When booking through LondonTown.com, guests can take advantage of a 83% discount on double club rooms, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to just £122. The hotel is around ten minutes walk from the Serpentine.

The Baglioni Hotel London in Hyde Park Gate is also partnering with LondonTown.com. For the duration of Trockel’s exhibition, they’re offering deluxe double and twin rooms at a 15% discount, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to £289. The luxury Baglioni is ten minute’s walk from the Serpentine.

More affordable London hotel accommodation is available in the shape of Lancaster Hotel, which is offering double rooms at a 44% discount, when booking through LondonTown.com. The discount brings the cost of a night’s stay down to £129.

Regresa el Certamen Anual de Fotografía de la Royal Air Force

Como cada año, este mes de enero se expondrán las imágenes que forman parte del concurso de fotografía anual de la Royal Air Force (la Real Fuerza Aérea británica). Compuesto por instantáneas realizadas por miembros en servicio, esta muestra lleva ofreciendo una visión íntima y personal de la vida en la RAF desde hace 23 años, cuando empezó a celebrarse en el museo de la Royal Air Force, situado en la localidad londinense de Hendon.

Entre las imágenes ganadoras destacan dramáticas instantáneas de miembros de las fuerzas aéreas en servicio, amén de fotos más personales de su vida diaria. Junto a esta muestra fotográfica, el museo acoge la exposición “Milestones of Flight”, que explora el pasado y presente de la Real Fuerza Aérea británica desde sus comienzos como un organismo sólo para hombres hasta la institución multicultural que es hoy.

El Royal Air Force Museum, también conocido como National Museum of Aviation, recopila cientos de miles de objetos relacionados con la historia de la aviación en el Reino Unido. Todo tipo de artefactos, maquetas e insignias rememoran más de cien años de historia de la aviación. Uno de los grandes atractivos del museo son sus históricos hangares, que jugaron un papel muy importante en la Segunda Guerra Mundial y que hoy en día dan cobijo a más de 100 aeronaves diferentes.

La entrada al museo es gratuita. La muestra de fotografía de la Royal Air Force permanecerá abierta desde el 12 de enero hasta el 30 de abril del 2013, de 10 de la mañana a 6 de la tarde todos los días. El portal LondonTown.com ha anunciado descuentos en hoteles en Londres cercanos al museo. Entre ellos se encuentra The Pillar Hotel en Brent Street, a media hora andando del museo.

Pinter’s Old Times Gets New Airing

Harold Pinter’s 1971 play ‘Old Times’ is to be performed at the London theatre recently renamed in honour of the Nobel Laureate. The play will run at the Harold Pinter Theatre – formerly the Comedy Theatre – from January 12th until April 6th.

Starring Rufus Sewell, Kristin Scott Thomas and Lia Williams, the playwright’s classic three-hander tells the tale of a married couple being visited at their remote farmhouse by an old friend. As they reminisce about their titular formative years in London, twenty-year-old sexual tensions are unleashed once more. In an unusual twist, the production sees the two female leads alternate roles, causing further confusion for Sewell’s Deeley, and the audience themselves.

First performed by a Peter Hall-directed RSC at the Aldwych Theatre in London in 1971, the play eventually went to Broadway, and has been translated into German. The new production is directed by Ian Rickson. Tickets range from £10-£49.50 and are available through LondonTown.com. The site is also offering reduced rates on hotels in London close to the Harold Pinter Theatre in Soho.

Among the hotels in London partnering with the website is the Radisson Blu Edwardian Leicester Square Hotel. Situated on St. Martins Street, less than two minutes’ walk from the Pinter Theatre, the Radisson is currently offering double rooms at a 48% discount. The offer – which is only available through LondonTown.com – brings the cost of a night’s stay in this luxury hotel down to only £220.

Another Radisson Blue, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Hotel on Leicester Square, is offering double rooms from £290 – a 21% reduction on the standard rate. Just as close to the theatre, this is one of the most luxurious hotels in London and within easy walking distance of the Harold Pinter Theatre on Panton Street.

Visit LondonTown.com website for more information on ‘Old Times’ and the Harold Pinter Theatre and to see more discounted hotels in London. Reduced rates are only available when booking now via LondonTown.com.

See in the New Year with Old Times

Theatre-goers and fans of contemporary stage literature will be delighted to hear of the revival of Harold Pinter’s darkly well-observed Old Times, which comes to the aptly-named Harold Pinter theatre from January 12th until April 6th 2013.

One of the playwright’s lesser-played, but hugely celebrated works that combines measured, expansive writing with underlying social and sexual tension between its main characters, the 2013 revival of Old Times also brings some huge names to the stage.

Set in a farmhouse, married couple Deeley and Kate chat about the impedning visit of their old friend Anna. But with Anna’s arrival comes a resurgence of the sexual tension, rivalry and intrigue which was never resolved between the group.

Starring Rufus Sewell, Kristin Scott Thomas and Lia Williams, it’s an all-star cast, directed by Ian Rickson. The Harold Pinter Theatre, recently re-christened after the Nobel-award-winning writer, is in the heart of Soho, and a suitably intimate yet important location for such a play.

LondonTown.com is on hand for theatre fans travelling up for the show – or for Londoners looking to make a special night of it – with hotel offers on central luxury and budget rooms in the city.

Customers can find London hotels on the LondonTown.com website – great offers include 67% off the 5* Guoman Hotel on Horse Guards Parade, a short walk from the theatre – with doubles for £156 on the night of February 9th.

Or guests can add a little rock star buzz with a stay at the Sanctum Soho Hotel London for £183 for a double at this 5* retreat in one of the city’s busiest districts.

Acclaimed Playwright Opens New Play at Royal Court Theatre

The new play from Polly Stenham, No Quarter, will open at the Royal Court Theatre on January 11th. The cast includes Maureen Beattie, Alexa Davies, Tom Sturridge and Zoe Boyle, known to Downton Abbey fans as Lavinia Swire. Jeremy Herrin, who directed Stenham’s previous two plays, will helm the production.

Described as ‘an anarchic twist on the drawing room drama’, the play tells the story of Robin (Tom Sturridge), who returns to the isolated family home, jaded with his new life. A battle over his family estate ensues, and Robin finds solace in his music.

The production marks something of a homecoming for Stenham, whose debut play, That Face , premiered at the Royal Court in 2007. She was just 19 at the time, and the play’s subsequent transfer to the Duke of York’s made her the West End’s youngest playwright since Christopher Hampton’s 1966 production When Did You Last See My Mother?

No Quarter will run at the Royal Court from January 11th until February 9th. Shows run from Monday to Saturday at 7.45pm, with Thursday and Saturday matinees opening at 3.30pm. Tickets cost £10 on Mondays and £20 through the week, with concessions available for £15.

For the duration of the run, a number of London hotels close to the theatre are offering discounted rates. The offers are exclusively available from website LondonTown.com. The Draycott in Cadogan Gardens is offering double rooms at a 53% discount – or £140 per night. It is less than five minutes walk from the Royal Court.

On Sloane Street, the Cadogan Hotel is offering a 43% discount on deluxe double and twin rooms, bringing the cost of a night’s stay down to £207. Previous guests include Oscar Wilde. The Tophams Hotel is offering double rooms at an 81% discount, making the cost of a night’s stay just £97.

The London hotels featured are only available at the reduced rates when booking through LondonTown.com. Visit the site for more information on Polly Stenham’s new play, other events in the city, and to see other discounted London hotels available in the New Year.

Frank van der Post, British Airways’ director of brands and customer experience, said: “We’re continually looking for new services and products that will make travelling with British Airways even better for our customers.

“We know how much our customers enjoy our carefully selected in-flight entertainment so we’re delighted that now they’ll be able to pack even more of the programmes and films into their long-haul flights.

“And with the Christmas break coming up, we’re sure that children flying with British Airways will love having more time to watch the great films we offer, and so will their parents.”

The extension to in-flight entertainment is part of a £5 billion investment programme by British Airways, which includes new aircraft, refurbished cabins and better lounges.

In line with other UK carriers, British Airways currently starts its in-flight entertainment system once the aircraft has taken off and following various
announcements and turns it off 15-20 minutes before the aircraft lands.

The airline was given the green light by the Civil Aviation Authority to introduce extended in-flight entertainment on its fleet of long haul aircraft.

This service will be also available on new routes the airline is launching, including London Heathrow to Seoul in South Korea which starts on Sunday, December 2, 2012. Customers looking to cross the Atlantic for a spot of Christmas shopping, or to simply enjoy holidays in New York or holidays in Boston, can now look forward to a flight filled to the brim with entertainment.
