MeetingPackage.com boast over 250,000 meeting rooms available through its platform around the world

Helsinki, Finland, Nov-1-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — MeetingPackage.com, the global marketplace for booking meeting rooms and packages, announced today the opening of yet a new location in the heart of Madrid, showcasing its rapid growth process after recently adding several offices across Europe.

In charge of the Spanish operations will be Olli Kariniemi, Sales Director and experienced MICE professional in the Spanish destination management business. With the experience gathered since late 90’s within the region, Kariniemi is proven to be a perfect match for MeetingPackage.com.

“We here in Madrid want to be at the forefront of the development of our industry and see increased potential for booking national and international meetings online. MeetingPackage.com was a perfect match and as it is one of the fastest growing marketplaces for booking meeting rooms. They have validated the customer need already in over 40 countries and are looking to build a presence now in Spain. We saw this as a huge possibility, and we are happy to grow together and make this happen”, says Kariniemi.

Lately, MeetingPackage.com has also been in the news as being the first global marketplace to offer direct integration with Oracle’s Opera Sales & Catering system. Used by a majority of the hotels worldwide, users of MeetingPackage.com can soon book their offsite meeting spaces directly online with transparent pricing and availability at any time.

“Hotels and venues have been battling for years to get higher occupancy rates to meeting rooms. One key problem has been slow and complicated sales processes where a customer has to send multiple emails and to make multiple calls to book a meeting room. Hotels have understood that we are here to help them to make their sales process faster and more efficient, so they don’t lose time on unnecessary RFP’s and therefore lose potential customers. This makes it truly easier for both stakeholders, the venues and the customers alike”, says Joonas Ahola, CEO & Founder of MeetingPackage.com.

For MeetingPackage.com, the move is more than simply opening a new office in Madrid. It is also about the unique cooperation which will see significant benefits for corporate buyers, meeting bookers and meeting venues alike. MeetingPackage.com is set to become the most popular marketplace to book meeting rooms globally by 2020.

Tæplega hundrað glæsilegar ljósmyndir prýða sýninguna „Heillandi Peking“ í Reykjavík

Reykjavík, Íslandi, Sep-6-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — „Heillandi Peking“, ljósmyndasýning um ferðalög var haldin í Reykjavík þann 11. ágúst í boði framkvæmdastjórnar Peking um þróun ferðamála (Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development). Zhang Weidong, kínverski sendiherrann á Íslandi, Song Yu, formaður framkvæmdastjórnar Peking um þróun ferðamála, og Inga Hlín Pálsdottir, forstöðumaður ferðaþjónustu og skapandi greina hjá Íslandsstofu mættu á setningarathöfnina og fluttu ræður.

Tæplega hundrað glæsilegar ljósmyndir prýða sýninguna „Heillandi Peking“, sem framkvæmdastjórn Peking um þróun ferðamála hefur safnað um árabil frá bæði innlendum og erlendum ljósmyndurum. Af þeirri ástæðu hafa þær mikið fagurfræðilegt gildi. Þemu þessarar ljósmyndasýningar eru hin forna höfuðborg, tískuborg, menning og lífsstíll og stórborg nútímans, og hún hefur fengið mikla athygli frá innlendum fréttamiðlum og almenningi.

Þessi kynningarviðburður hefur styrkt tvíhliða samskipti og samvinnu við þróun ferðamála, bætt skilning Íslendinga á ferðamálatækifærum í Peking og tekið virkan þátt í að stækka íslenskan ferðaþjónustumarkað fyrir Peking.

Frá árinu 2017 hafa löndin viðhaldið diplómatískum tengslum í meira en 46 ár. Að auki er Ísland mikilvægt land fyrir norðurátt hinnar nýju silkileiðar (The Belt and Road) og Kína er helsti viðskiptaaðili Íslands í Asíu og sjöunda stærsta viðskiptalandið á heimsvísu. Bæði Peking og Reykjavík hafa yfir miklum auðlindum að búa á sviði ferðaþjónustu, svo sem fallega náttúru og djúpar menningarrætur. Fyrir utan fallegt útsýni Reykjavíkur, sem er norðlægasta höfuðborg heims, er þar einnig að finna Þjóðminjasafn Íslands, Listasafn Íslands, Listasafn Einars Jónssonar og aðra sögulega og menningarlega mikilvæga staði. Beijing hefur verið höfuðborg Kína í 4 valdakynslóðir og varðveitir 7 heimsmenningararfssvæði, auk þess sem þar er að finna yfir 170 söfn með fjölmörgu áhugaverðu efni fyrir ferðamenn. Árið 2015 komu fleiri en 48.000 kínverskir ferðamenn til Íslands með næstum því 100% aukningu á milli ára. Við viljum nýta okkur tækifærið við þennan kynningarviðburð til að fræða fleiri Íslendinga um Kína og Peking.

Large Japanese property corporation entered the Australian & NZ serviced Apartments/accommodation Industry

JAPANESE RENTAL HOUSING MANAGEMENT COMPANY BUYS WALDORF SERVICED APARTMENTS

Sydney, Australia, 2017-Feb-01 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Daiwa Living Management Co. Ltd (DLM), one of the largest Rental Hosing management companies together with Cosmos Initia Co, Ltd (CI), a Residential Developer in Japan, have jointly purchased 75% of Waldorf Australia and New Zealand Group.

Waldorf is a privately owned company which commenced operations in Sydney in 1982. Since then, the business has grown to more than 1,500 apartments and operates in Sydney, Central Coast, Canberra, Leura, Geraldton, Perth and Auckland.

Waldorf is currently one of the largest Serviced Apartment operators in Australasia.
DLM manages approximately 500,000 rental housing properties across Japan.

The Serviced Apartment business has undergone significant transformation in Australasia in recent years with almost all leading operators entering into ‘Joint Ventures’ with international operators.

DLM and CI are subsidiary companies of Daiwa House Industry Co. Ltd, the largest publically listed Construction and Development Company in Japan.

“The sale to DLM Group will bring forward our plans to further improve services and allow the business to expand significantly in the coming years.” said the Waldorf Group founding Director and CEO, Avi Rubinstein. He added that “We expect to grow our business to more than 5,000 apartments in time and this will greatly enhance our brand awareness and increase our competitiveness.”

“Serviced Apartments are an attractive alternative to Hotels as they offer spacious, high quality self -contained accommodation at reasonable prices and they are becoming increasingly attractive to domestic and international tourists as well as to the corporate traveller.” Mr Rubinstein said.

DLM has been seeking an opportunity to enter the Australasian market and is excited about the Waldorf acquisition. Waldorf is a well-established and successful business which is ‘scalable’ and presents DLM with an ideal platform to grow across many sub markets in both Australia and New Zealand.

The existing owners of Waldorf will continue their involvement in the business as Directors and their main focus will be to acquiring new properties for the newly enhanced group.

ENDS

Nairobi National Park Tour in Kenya is the most popular to transit travelers at Nairobi Airport including delegates

Nairobi, Kenya, 2017-Jan-31 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — The best and most popular areas in Africa for safaris are East Africa precisely Kenya which offers vast plains and roaming packs of extraordinary beasts.

Many travelers come to Africa in search of the “big five”: buffalo, lions, leopards, elephants and rhinoceroses. The chance to get close to these animals in their natural habitats is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but your trip to the Africa is anything but a trip to the zoo. Safaris can be physically taxing and strenuous, and you may not see all the animals you expected. Since most safari destinations are in developing sub-Saharan nations, travelers must take certain safety and health precautions. If you’re planning a safari (or just dreaming about it), be as prepared as possible. Get some good guidebooks, talk to friends who’ve been to Africa and research, research, research. We’ve outlined some important safari basics, from choosing a destination to getting vaccinated, to help you start planning a successful African adventure such as short trip to the Nairobi National Park which can be booked online through https://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/nairobi-national-park or through our partner online travel agency Get Your Guide Nairobi National Park Tour -link https://www.getyourguide.com/nairobi-l267/nairobi-national-park-full-day-tour-t11393/

Here are 5 Reasons to go on Safari in East Africa during the Shoulder & Low Seasons

  1. Save Money East Africa is not the cheapest of African regions to visit. As the traditional heartland of African wildlife safaris, the prices in East Africa are higher than in most Southern African countries. These higher costs can put budget conscious travelers off, but the good news is that prices drop during the off-peak times of the year, bringing these classical safari destinations within reach. One of the reasons prices fall is because mainstream travel advice is to avoid the rainy seasons and that winter game viewing is best. Also, most travelers tend to travel during the northern hemisphere summer and over Christmas and New Years.
  2. You can save between 20 and 40% on safaris outside of the high and peak season.
  3. It’s not just the safari packages that are cheaper in low season, the accommodation rates drop saving you money on pre and post tour accommodation. Activities are also offered at reduced prices, as are day trips.
  4. If you’re travelling independently in East Africa during low season you also have more leverage for bargaining and negotiating better deals too.
  5. Flights are also cheaper, due to lower demand! All-in-all it can make an otherwise too expensive African safari affordable. We are able to enjoy the amazing moorlands, the beautiful snowcaps, mysterious oceans and seas and incredible wildlife. However, it is our responsibility to ensure that whilst we enjoy the marvels of this world we should be conscious of maintaining the conservation of these wonders.

https://www.getyourguide.com/nairobi-l267/maasai-mara-safari-from-nairobi-t55408/

The shoulder seasons which fall between the low and peak periods offer similar advantages to the low seasons. Falling at the start and end of the rains, the shoulder seasons are often the best time to go on safari in East Africa in terms of balancing cost, game viewing, visitor numbers and weather. The shoulder season between the long and short rains – from January to March, is actually considered by some safari veterans to be the best time to go game viewing in Kenya and Tanzania.

Cruzeiro Safaris take on travel advisories lift TELL TRAVELERS TO TRAVEL

Nairobi, Kenya, July 30, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — Tour operators and hoteliers in Kenya are finally having a breather after the travel advisories by the British government were lifted sometime in June, 2015. One can read the full statement on the FCO website for the British embassy. The coming of the President of the United States of America is another plus and boost to the tourism industry. Now travelers can flock the country Kenya with confidence.

The East African Adventure is awaiting all travel enthusiasts to enjoy last minute deals or just plan ahead for the long term safari adventure in 2015 and 2016. One thing for sure is that the annual migration of the wildebeest is still taking place regardless of the presence of any audience. Adventure travelers can take advantage of the 3 country VISA option for Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. As we write this article we received a new circular British and Irish Nationals need a VISA to enter Kenya. The single entry visa allows a re-entry to Kenya from Tanzania and Uganda. Other arrangements can be made to Ethiopia and Zambia.

With the successful safari of camel derby in 2013 where we took a group of people and they won several awards in the derby, this year 2015 we anticipate to take even a large group of people. The takes place from 14-16 August, 2015 in Maralal, Samburu County. We have more information on our website and how to bookhttp://www.cruzeiro-safaris.com/kenya/274-fansof-maralal-carmel-derby-

Starting off is Kenya with its adventurous Game reserves or National Reserves which are set up and managed by the local authority where they located. The local communities interact freely with the wildlife before such areas are declared game reserves. Unlike National Parks, the local communities are allowed to live and graze their animals in game reserves. For example, the Maasai people live and graze their animals in Maasai Mara without being restricted by the management of the park. Game reserves may also be set up and owned and managed by private individuals with special permission from the Central Government. Golf holidays with adventure are also increasingly becoming popular. Adventures and sports enthusiasts are not left behing with the amazing 20days safari in Kenya and Tanzania with highlight visits to:

  • Maasai Mara National Reserve
  • Lake Nakuru National Park  
  • Lake Naivasha National Park  
  • Hells Gate National Park – cycling, walking, oljorowa gorge, sulphuric pool
  • Mount Longonot National Park 
  • climbing the crater approx 20kms  
  • Aberdares National Park 
  • Karura falls
  • Mount Kenya National park -mount climbing
  • Sweetwaters Sanctuary or Samburu National reserve
  • Amboseli National Park  
  • Tarangire National Park  
  • Serengeti National Par
  • Ngorongoro Crater  and Park 
  • Olduvai gorge  
  • Lake Manyara National Park  
  • Nairobi  and Arusha  
  • Carnivore restaurant
  • Nairobi City tour
  • Shopping

Safaris from Mombasa city which is located along the Kenyan Coast, has numerous beach resorts and apartments that one can choose from. City tours of Mombasa and Safaris to Tsavo and Amboseli Parks and the Summer package can be arranged.

We then head to the adventure of Gorilla trekking either in Uganda or Rwanda but we emphasize on Rwanda this time. Another breed of the Golden monkeys is also within reach from the Volcanoes National Park. The Golden monkey is a local sub-species of the widespread Sykes Monkey, also known as the ‘Blue Monkey” and is endemic to the high altitude forest of the Volcanoes National Park areas. The monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend time leaping form bamboo branches or flicking on the forest floor. Visitors are permitted to stay for 1 hour with the Golden monkeys just as with the Mountain Gorillas. In 4 days you can spend time in Rwanda on full adventure.

As much as it’s not on the agreement for the #EACVISA, Tanzania is also worth visiting. When we talk of Tanzania what comes in mind is its fame of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti or the spice Island of Zanzibar that comes in to our minds. Even though some tourist destinations have remained unpretentious and have hardly been exposed to the outside world. Departing on Sunday they offer 12 days of the Best of Tanzania and Zanzibar.

Another adventure that one can combine with the above 2 is the visit to Victoria Falls in Zambia or famously knows as Vic Falls. Taking a 5 day trip to the Livingstone area, Botswana for a river safari get on the 4×4 trucks for a game driver in the Chobe National park, take a guided tour to Vic falls and fly over the falls with a helicopter. Later on take a sunset cruise on Zambezi River. They package it to fly from Nairobi’s capital and return there. This makes it easy for one to just book their inward and outbound flights from home to Nairobi.

Short tours or trips can be organized locally from Nairobi, Mombasa or Arusha.

This is the right season for travelers all over the world to head to Kenya.

Lua Hadar with Twist Swings it in French at Society Cabaret Bastille Party

San Francisco, CA, July 03, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — To celebrate French Independence Day, Lua Hadar with Twist returns for an encore performance of their popular French Music Hall show, “C’est Magnifique!” This Bastille-Day-with-a-Twist features Lua on French and English vocals, Music Director Jason Martineau on piano, Dan Feiszli on bass, Kelly Park on drums, and special guest Dave Sturdevant on guitar and harmonica. Saturday, July 11 at 8pm (seating from 7pm) at Society Cabaret at the Hotel Rex Union Square, 562 Sutter Street, San Francisco. Tickets start at $25 (NO FEES) at Ticketmaster or societycabaret.com Or call 415-857-1896. Full bar, great food. More info at www.luahadar.com.

The show presents a variety of songs from the popular traditions of Paris, including those of American songwriter Cole Porter; hence the title “C’est Magnifique!” a song from Cole Porter’s 1953 musical, Can-Can.

Dave Sturdevant’s harmonica brings a Toots Thielemans-style to the show, in addition to the gypsy sound of his swinging guitar.

French songs by Charles Trenet, Maxime LeForestier, Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg round out the set list, and as ever, Lua’s fun and quirky stories provide her personalized bridge to the songs, whether you speak French or not.

Hadar is no stranger to France or French music, having just returned from teaching a master class in France on American Jazz Standards.

ABOUT TWIST:
Since its inception in 2007, Hadar’s cosmopolitan jazz ensemble TWIST has developed a multi-lingual world jazz fusion that twists the styles of international standards and brings new material into the jazz idiom.

Lua has charmed audiences from New York’s Iridium Jazz Club to Bangkok’s Thailand Cultural Center to the Swan Bar in Paris, where, on a return engagement, she previewed “C’est Magnifique!” to an enthusiastic full house before bringing it to San Francisco’s Society Cabaret for its first run in November 2013. The show was reprised last year and became a Society Cabaret tradition, presented each time with a different featured instrumentalist.

Hadar has released three CDs with Music Director Jason Martineau and Twist. The most recent, “Like A Bridge,” was recorded in 2012 as the centerpiece of her Bridges Project. The “Like A Bridge” DVD was nominated for an Independent Music Award and was released at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland in September of 2013 after its premiere at San Francisco’s Historic Balboa Theater.

“…such a lovely variety of songs from cabaret traditions of Paris (and beyond), that we might as well have been in a brick-walled basement room in the Quartier Latin.” – Talkin’ Broadway

“First call band of international talent and an innate gift of swing.” – Critical Jazz

LondonTown.com: London landscapes celebrated in new exhibition

South London parks are the subject of new photographic exhibition at the Horniman Museum.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A new photographic exhibition celebrating London’s lesser-known landscapes open this month at one of London’s friendliest museums. South London Landscapes is now open at the Horniman Museum And Gallery this week and runs throughout the summer, featuring photographs of the Horniman itself as well as other picturesque public spaces in and around south London. The Horniman is one of London’s liveliest small museums, boasting excellent natural history and music galleries, a small aquarium and extensive landscaped grounds. For more information, and to see the latest deals on London hotels, see LondonTown.com.

South London Landscapes features photographs taken by London-based landscape photographer Max A Rush. The photographs, which include pictures of the Horniman Gardens, are taken in unusual and beautiful weather and capture how the passage of the seasons and the forces of the weather transform the appearance and character of the local landscape. Areas featured in South London Landscapes include Brockwell Park, Crystal Palace Park, Dulwich Park, Dulwich Wood, Ruskin Park and the Horniman Gardens.

Max Rush says: ‘These are a few of my favourite locations around south London. I’ve continually returned to them over the years, watching the seasons pass and the elements batter, freeze and occasionally warm their well-worn faces. I’ve witnessed moments of transcendental beauty in familiar places and endeavoured to capture them as truthfully as I can. So many people fight their way out of the city every week for the sake of nature, but perhaps what they’re looking for was here all along.’ For more information on this and other exhibitions and events taking place at the Horniman this summer, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Groundbreaking London exhibition looks at post-war Black British artists

Guildhall Art Gallery explores the work of little-known but pivotal Afro-Caribbean artists

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — A groundbreaking new exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery in the City of London will look at the little-known and rarely exhibited history of 20th-century Black British art. No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 runs from 10 July 2015 to 24 January 2016, and will explore the history of art produced by Britain’s Afro-Caribbean citizens, reflecting their experiences in the country after the major emigrations that occurred following the end of the Empire at the conclusion of the Second World War. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London this summer, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find information on London events and cheap London hotels.

At the heart of the exhibition will be a recreation of the Bogle-L’Ouverture Walter Rodney bookshop, created by renowned artist and curator Dr Michael McMillan (West Indian Front Room) and sound and visual specialists, Dubmorphology. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a stunning multi-sensory, multi-visual experience including works of art, sculpture, photographs, paintings, letters and other artefacts from more than 25 prominent Black artists during this period including Eddie Chambers, Sonia Boyce, Denzil Forrester and Chila Kumari Burman.

Influenced by the emergence of newly independent African and Caribbean states, global liberation struggles, the fight against unfair discrimination and an insistence on dignified citizenship within Britain, these artists found expression by way of ‘creation for liberation’. The exhibition will explore these struggles and celebrate their contribution through four themes: ‘Elbow Room’, ‘Broad Shoulders’, ‘Clenched Fists’ and ‘Open Arms’.

Throughout its tenure, No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990 will also play host to a series of scheduled events enriching the visitor experience through a diverse range of educational talks, workshops and gallery tours. For more information on this and other exhibitions in the City of London, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Cutting-edge US artist receives first major European show in London this summer

Raven Row gallery in Spitalfields hosts a retrospective of ground-breaking US artist Larry Johnson.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — One of America’s most interesting contemporary artists is to receive his first major European exhibition at a new gallery that focuses on cutting-edge, avant-garde art. Raven Row is a non-profit contemporary art exhibition centre in Spitalfields that is housed within two eighteenth-century merchants’ houses integrated with new galleries and its next exhibition, Larry Johnson: On Location runs from 11 June to 9 August 2015. It is directed and funded by Alex Sainsbury of the Sainsbury family, whose family have funded many great art projects in London, such as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery. Raven Row is a very different enterprise, offering thoughtful shows on lesser-known artists and allowing visitors to explore the fascinating quarter of Spitalfields. The area is filled with fashionable boutiques, great shops and cool bars and restaurants. To explore its attractions, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest room rates for hotels in London.

On Location brings together a selection of works by Larry Johnson from the early 1990s to the present. The show’s uncontested star is Los Angeles, the city in which Johnson has lived and worked all his life. For over thirty years, LA’s physical and imaginary appearance has served as the set for the artist’s photo-based investigations of the glamour industry, replete with fading stars and premature deaths. Johnson’s work bears the marks of a generation of artists sampling readymade images and texts to create seductively laconic pictures. Yet the colourful sheen of Johnson’s photo-based works is also a foil for sexual, political and semantic tension. The artist’s pictures are encryptions of a Hollywood demi-monde, referring to the cultures from which his work emerges queer, political, filmic and theoretical.

The exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based writer Bruce Hainley, and by Antony Hudek, Curator and Deputy Director of Raven Row. Commie Pinko Guy, a publication edited by Hainley with new essays by Morgan Fisher, Lisa Lapinski, Hainley, Hudek and Wayne Koestenbaum, as well as reprints of classic underground queer writing, will accompany the exhibition. For more information on this and other exhibitions in London’s cutting-edge contemporary art scene, see LondonTown.com.

LondonTown.com: Classic London cinema at the Southbank all summer

BFI Southbank unveils new season dedicated to films exploring the UK capital.

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — London On Film is a new major season of films at the BFI Southbank that will explore and celebrate the capital for four months from 1st July to 9th October. This is the first time the BFI has ever celebrated the city in which it is based, and will feature 200 films, a number of which have been unseen since they were first filmed, offering an extraordinary perspective of the city from the past 120 years. The BFI Southbank is the national home of cinema, featuring three state-of-the-art screens in Waterloo on the Southbank.For more on this vital cultural quarter, as well as the latest rates forLondon hotels, seeLondonTown.com.

The London On Film season will include events such as a Soho Weekender (24-26 July) to celebrate the unique culture of Soho captured in films from 1896 – 1985 such as West End Jungle (1961), The Small World of Sammy Lee(1963) and Sunshine in Soho (1956). There will also be a discussion event Vanishing Soho on the state of Soho today in the light of current major changes for those who live and play there. It will include some of the earliest films ever made, such as RW Paul’s Blackfriars Bridge (1896(. Films from major filmmakers include Anthony Asquith’s evocative Underground (1928), the first feature to be shot on the underground and Nicolas Roeg’s Performance (1970), which takes us into the dangerous realms of psychedelic and sexual experimentation. There will also be films by Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Winterbottom and Otto Preminger.

Black experience is highlighted in a series of key films including Earl Cameron’s pioneering role as a black sailor in the crime drama Pool of London (1951) with fine use of locations around Tower Bridge, Poplar, Southwark and the City; Cameron also stars in the little seen The Heart Within (1957) another crime thriller set in London’s Docklands. Sapphire (Basil Dearden, 1959) is a film-maker’s response to the Notting Hill race riots wrapped up in a murder mystery while Babylon (Franco Rosso, 1981) shows the demoralisation of black youth, and offers an eerily prescient portrait of the situation in Deptford which would give rise to the Brixton Riots of the same year.

LondonTown.com: British Museum gets its medals out for the great French Sun King

Free exhibition at the museum showcases remarkable 17th-century emblems of Louis XIV’s reign

LONDON, June 08, 2015 — /EPR TRAVEL NEWS/ — The British Museum is holding a new exhibition that looks at the medals drawn from the reign of the great French Sun King, Louis XIV. Triumph and disaster: medals of the Sun King runs from 4 June to 15 November and marks the tercentenary year of the death of Louis XIV. It is one of several free exhibitions that are held at the British Museum every year to draw attention to the many easily overlooked marvels within its collection and to present them in new ways to mark anniversaries or to reinterpret the material. For more information on the full programme of exhibitions at the British Museum, see LondonTown.com, where you can also find the latest information on cheap hotels in London.

The Louis XIV medals are preserved as they were in Louis XIV’s own day and includes contributions from the British Library which has a unique manuscript scrapbook of drawings and notes on the creation of the history, and the V&A. The medals were a way for the king to portray his reign and the greatest writers (including Jean Racine), historians, artists and medalists of the day were brought together by the king to ensure that posterity would see his rule as Louis wished it to be seen: the reign of an ideal and ever victorious monarch.

The early medals portray a dazzling image of a ‘Sun King,’ who is represented as hard-working, accessible, generous and just; a king that worked for the benefit of the people, glorifying as much in their happiness as in victory over his enemies. The picture changed as war succeeded war and defeat succeeded victory. The later medals, though careful to represent only French successes, are so numerous that they give the impression not of victory but of endless and draining warfare.

Elsewhere in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands, medals were produced that mocked and satirized the official French medals. These rival medals showed the French sun eclipsed by the zodiacal signs of his enemies, and Louis as an old man being roundly beaten by Queen Anne. Collectively, these medals and attendant literature present a fascinating and unique self-portrait of a regime which dominated Europe for nearly sixty years, and which established the primacy of French taste and French culture for over a century.

Created in collaboration with a group of 15 young women in Poland, the project empowers the authority of the girls’ voices and their perspectives on the world. Over the weekend from 19-21 June, Parviz Kimiavi will feature. Spanning four screenings over three days, this will be the UK’s first major survey of maverick filmmaker Parviz Kimiavi, a pioneer of alternative cinema in 1970’s Iran. Kimiavi created surreal and hallucinatory films, using non-professional actors and harsh desert landscapes.

Curator Bruce Hainley and writer Wayne Koestenbaum will discuss his work, followed by a specially selected cult film. On 8 July, Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc’s new film will be screened. This addresses political issues alongside scientific and anthropological histories. Drawing on a personal photographic archive, the film presents a young fictional researcher who leads a group between the IFAN Museum in Dakar and the Musée de l’Homme in Paris. The screening will be introduced by a live concert by the electronic music act PAL. Finally, over three days from 10-12 June, The Film Will Always Be You: South African Artists on Screen will explore the film work of key artists in South Africa.
