Arts & Culture

  • Summer Fest Waddesdon

    OMG, we can't wait! Waddesdon's Summer Fest (Sat 6 - Sun 7 July) is going to be *awesome*. Here are the best bits to see, PLUS win 2 family tickets on us.

  • The books you MUST read this summer

    June's best new books are a corking bunch, including Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert's breathtaking new novel. Check out Kerry Potter's reviews - and then win the whole lot!

  • Miley goes mental

    Could this fruity promo for her new album be Miley Cyrus' naughtiest stunt yet? You decide.

  • Pass the popcorn…

    ...top up the Pimm's and pitch up for a pop-up film night. And now please follow the usher this way for over 100 screenings across Bucks, Oxon and beyond!

  • Fresh! This summer’s best outdoor theatre

    Go on, pack your picnic and breathe in the culture! Over 40 shows of the Bard, Jane Austen, Lewis Carroll and, erm, Gansta Granny in my definitive summer guide to outdoor theatre.

  • Eliot *who?*

    Eliot Hodgkin, duh! (OK I didn't know him either). A surprise hit with my kids, this charming exhibition at Waddesdon Manor re-introduces the celebrated 20th century still life and landscape painter. Well worth the detour to the Coach House.

  • Need a brilliant new read?

    A stunning debut novel, a futuristic thriller and an exquisite memoir are among books editor Kerry Potter's marvellous May picks. And you can win the lot!

  • Well, hello you!

    How has Keanu Reeves not aged in 30 years?! The laconic Hollywood star is back in a fashion campaign that's got social media a-swooning. Shall we examine the evidence?

  • The Guilty Feminist

    Love the podcast? Good news- we grabbed Deborah Francis-White for chinwag.

  • No, Tom, Noooooo!

    Is this the most excruciatingly cringey celebrity advert ever? Quite possibly Mr Hiddleston, quite possibly!
