Reader Treats Just For You!

Culture

  • Wicker basket packed?

    On the back of National Picnic Week we're scoffing scotch eggs and heading off to Bucks & Oxon's 20 top picnic spots.

  • 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!

  • April’s best new books

    Quick, spring-clean your bedside table or Kindle to make room for Muddy books editor's Kerry Potter's awesome April picks.

  • Work/life balance nailed

    The juggle is real - and not going anywhere - so how the hell can we to get it right?! Let's ask the work/life balance experts for some help.

  • Need a new book?

    You're in the right place - Muddy's pro-bookworm Kerry Potter has picked this month's seven sexiest reads. And you can win the lot!
