Floating Garden Party

A unique London Thames experience - 25th, 26th and 27th May 2017

Cake and cocktails? Yes please

March 21, 2017
Cake and cocktails? Yes please


A girly catch-up was well overdue. Since we couldn’t decide between cake and cocktails we decided to head somewhere in Central London that offered both. Having been to the Quarter Bar & Lounge at London Bridge Hotel for cocktails before I was aching to try their afternoon tea. 

We had a booth reserved which gave the feeling of privacy. Champagne or a sparkling cocktail can replace the usual tea offering for an additional £10. We chose the regular afternoon tea and had a couple of cheeky cocktails beforehand.



Our favourite cocktails were the Hipster which had a tequila base, aperol, ginger, passion fruit and super pretty edible flower decorations and a vodka-based apple martini which isn’t even on the menu. The staff were professional, friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

Sipping our teas (Assam and green) we were presented with our afternoon tea, beautifully presented on an impressive three-tier stainless steel cake-stand.


The finger-sandwich fillings included egg mayonnaise and cress, generously sliced pepper-edged honey-roast ham and wholegrain mayo and double-layered coronation chicken and spring onions. A mini smoked-salmon bagel with cream cheese also accompanied the savouries. All sandwiches are freshly made on the premises and you can really tell.

Two scones; one fruit, one plain followed. They scones are sizeable and hold their shape when bitten into. The accompanying thick cream and homemade strawberry jam is bountiful.



The cakes seemed almost too pretty to eat….almost. The difficulty was which cake to start with. The display consisted of a mini chocolate tartlet, mini macaroons, a vanilla and raspberry delice and a layered triple chocolate delice. The mini chocolate tartlet made it to the top of the hit list and looked especially sophisticated with the phials fruit proudly positioned on top. The pastry is crisp, light and thick enough to hold its shape when bitten into. The chocolate filling is bold and smooth. 



The jelly top of layered vanilla and raspberry delice is packed full of flavour. The mousse was creamy and consistent. The layered triple chocolate delice is especially fun to dive into due to it’s crispy meringue topping. 

We played guess the flavour with the macaroons. Our conclusion: lemon, raspberry, chocolate and a surprising coffee. We had been hoping for a salted caramel. The shells we smooth and crack-free, the texture firm, and the flavours unapologetic. 

 

Example of Quarter Bar & Lounge Afternoon Tea Menu

Choose from a range of teas 

Selection of finger sandwiches e.g. smoked salmon & caper butter on brown bread, egg mayonnaise & mustard cress on white bread, cucumber, sundried tomato paste & dill cream cheese on brown bread (v), honey roast ham, English mustard & rocket salad on white bread 

Homemade plain & fruit scones clotted cream & homemade strawberry jam 

Quarter selection of pastries mini fruit tartlet, bergamot cupcake, mini macaron, layered triple chocolate delice

(see above)

Champagne Afternoon Tea £35

Afternoon Tea Times:

Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays: 1.00pm - 5.00pm


Overall, afternoon tea at the Quarter Bar & Lounge at London Bridge Hotel was very enjoyable. Its location was perfect for both of us to come into central London,being a stone’s throw from an entrance to London Bridge station. The Quarter Bar and Lounge is a comfortable and relaxing environment where the staff are proficient and friendly.

Have you visited Nunhead Cemetery yet?

March 16, 2017
Have you visited Nunhead Cemetery yet?
Nunhead Cemetery was originally called All Saints. Covering 52 acres, it is the second largest of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ cemeteries established around the outskirts of London between 1832 and 1841 during a time when inner city churchyards were unhealthily overcrowded.
The cemetery was built on Nunhead Hill which rises two hundred feet above sea level with views of the City of London and St Paul’s Cathedral to the north and the North Downs to the south.
The London Cemetery Company, the original owner, went bankrupt and passed the graveyard into to the ownership of the United Cemetery Company (UCC) in 1960. The UCC couldn't run it profitably, so closed Nunhead in 1969, locked the gates, and left it to decay.
In 1975, Southwark Council bought the site for £1, although very little was done with it until the late 1990s when it was awarded Lottery funding, allowing the Friends of Nunhead Cemetery to renovate and restore it.
Almost 270,000 people are buried here, dating back as far as 1840.
The Anglican chapel is in the Gothic style and constructed from Kentish ragstone, and was one of two built in 1844 to the design by Thomas Little. Little had been a pupil of architect Robert Abraham (Arundel Castle, east wing and Norfolk House, St. James’s Square and Alton Towers, garden buildings). There are almost one hundred drawings of Nunhead Cemetery’s chapels held by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
After the completion of the Nunhead Cemetery chapels Little went on to design the layout of Paddington cemetery, its chapels and lodges, as well as numerous churches in London and Sussex. In 1975, Southwark Council bought the site for £1, although very little was done with it until the late 1990s when it was awarded Lottery funding, allowing the Friends of Nunhead Cemetery to renovate and restore it.

‘Sacred Bodies’ by Sara Burgess
Art in Nunhead Cemetery, 20 Feb - 22 April 2017
Nunhead cemetery hosts ‘Sacred Bodies’ by Sara Burgess her first solo exhibition of her metal sculpture work in an outdoor space. This art exhibition explores our connection between the inevitable physicality of our earthly, human existence and our violation to overcome suffering.
‘Iron Maiden’ is a stylised wrought-iron torso in a female form; highlighting the enduring discrimination against women throughout the ages and took 50 hours to complete. Burgess says ‘I was learning more about blacksmithing and scroll work, and practicing my welding and construction skills - figuring out how to weld the scrolls together was no easy task!’
What are the challenges of creating your metal sculpture work?
‘I use the superb metal workshop facilities at Pelham Hall, Morley College on Saturdays. If I had a studio with metal-work facilities I'm sure I’d be able to spend more time creating my sculptures.’
So what’s next for Sara?
‘I'm currently working on a small-scale maquette (model) of a torso with arms - it's still headless though - and a cage door within the body with more delicate wire material and using brazing - a form of soldering. So watch this space!’
Catch with Sara’s work at Nunhead Cemetery which is open every day until 22nd April 2017.
 

Michelangelo & Sebastiano exhibition review

March 14, 2017
Michelangelo & Sebastiano exhibition review

Credit Suisse Exhibition: Michelangelo & Sebastiano plays homage to two of Italy’s great Renaissance masters, Michelangelo and Sebastiano del Piombo.

The large altarpiece The Raising of Lazarus by Sebastiano (NG1) was one of the first paintings in the National Gallery and so it seems quite surprising that Sebastian is not so well known with those not so immersed in the Renaissance art world.

The National Gallery’s latest exhibition is the first to explore the creative partnership between Michelangelo (1475-1564) and Sebastiano (1485-1547). This is done through around 70 works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and letters produced by Michelangelo and Sebastiano before, during, and after their friendship and in so doing provides us with a unique insight into both men’s professional and personal lives. 

Michelangelo was working on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel when Sebastian arrived in Rome from Venice. The two men quickly became friends, a friendship which lasted over twenty-five years. Sebastiano was the only oil painter in Rome to rival Raphael who was enjoying his increasing popularity at the time. His skills and friendship must have benefited Michelangelo who favoured neither oil painting nor Raphael. A young Sebastiano would doubtlessly have benefited from the friendship, from Michelangelo’s drawings and conceptual ideas. They collaborated on a number of works including the Pieta for the church of San Francesco in Viterbo, the Raising of Lazarus for the Cathedral of Narbonne, and the Borgherini Chapel:

The are other firsts; Sebastiano’s Visitation ventures from the Louvre; and the Lamentation over the dead Christ from the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg. The exhibition tells a story from origins, via friendship and rivalry through to an acrimonious end. 

Exhibition Highlights

Michelangelo’s Pieta never fails to impress. Although a cast of the original, this is a chance of seeing it as to how it was designed to be seen, at floor height rather than up and out of reach in Chapel of the Pieta in S. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City. Try to find, hidden in the folds of Mary's left hand, a subtle "M" believed to stand for Michelangelo.  

A combination of 3D printing technology and traditional forming methods has enabled the successful reconstruction of the Borgherini Chapel. Even though it is slightly smaller than the original it is still impressive. 

I very much enjoyed looking at works from different angles, be it earlier versions such as The Risen Christ by Michelangelo which is a larger-than-life-size marble statue (1514-1515) lent by the Church of S. Vincenzo Martire, Bassano Romano. The Risen Christ stands proudly next to a plaster cast of Michelangelo’s second version of the same subject (1519-21) which is permanently housed in the S. Maria sopra Minerva, Rome. This is the first time visitors have had the opportunity to see these two versions side by side. To also see Sebastiano’s painting and study for Christ carrying the Cross whose style at this time seems so closely aligned with Michelangelo’s was particularly special. 

The focus of the exhibition is collaboration and nothing highlights this more than the informal charcoal studies on the reverse of the Viterbo Pieta (1512) which are believed to be by both artists. Some of the smaller figure studies appear to be Michelangelo’s ideas for designs that he would paint on the Sistine Chapel ceiling of the same year, (The Creation of Man) and The Brazen Serpent).

You don’t need to be knowledgeable about Michelangelo, Sebastiano or Italian Renaissance art to enjoy this exhibition as it carefully guides you, providing enough to see and read to build a better understanding of these Renaissance artists as individuals and collaborators.

Sensational Butterflies at Natural History Museum



This Easter, escape to the tropical butterfly house and see the crawling caterpillar transform into the beautiful butterfly at the all-time favourite National History Museum.

Sensational Butterflies returns for its ninth year in 2017 and remains a spring and summer favourite for schools, families and anyone seeking solace from the busy London streets.

#BeBoldforChange - looking back to move forward

March 8, 2017
#BeBoldforChange - looking back to move forward



International Women's Day is a day where people come together to help forge a better working world, a more gender inclusive world. This year's International Women's Day is #BeBoldForChange

By definition bold means 
(of a person, action, or idea) showing a willingness to take risks; confident and courageous. Bold, taking risks, confident and courageous aren't words often associate with women, not in a positive light. But why?

Women such as Anne Askew, Edith Cavell and Fanny Burney are all women who showed courage and took risks throughout history. Having covered Fanny Burney in my Evelina’s London walk for last year’s International Women’s Day so let’s back a bit further in time, to the Tudor period.

Anne Askew
Anne is an English poet and Protestant who was condemned as a heretic. She is one of the earliest female poets known to compose in the English language. She kept her maiden name after marrying and the first Englishwoman to demand a divorce.

In 1543 Henry VIII made it illegal for low rank men and all women to read the bible. In protest Anne travelled to her nearest city Lincoln and spent a week openly reading her bible in the Cathedral. This was a bit too much for her Catholic husband and by one way or another Anne left her marital home and joined her sister in London.

Anne became a famous preacher during her time in London, reading and quoting from the Bible to Protestant and Evangelical men and women of all classes. Eventually the authorities had had enough and they arrested Anne in 1545 for heresy. Fortunately for her, no witnesses came forward so the charges were dropped.

While in Newgate Prison Anne wrote protest songs and poems. She saw herself as a knight fighting injustice. She also described the King as cruel. But she also asked God’s forgiveness on behalf of the men ‘what will fall’ who persecuted her.

Here is Anne Askew’s Newgate ballad:

Like as the armed knight
Appointed to the field,
With this world will I fight
And Faith shall be my shield.

Faith is that weapon strong
Which will not fail at need.
My foes, therefore, among
Therewith will I proceed.

As it is had in strength
And force of Christes way
It will prevail at length
Though all the devils say nay.

Faith in the fathers old
Obtained rightwisness
Which make me very bold
To fear no world's distress.

I now rejoice in heart
And Hope bid me do so
For Christ will take my part
And ease me of my woe.

Thou saist, lord, who so knock,
To them wilt thou attend.
Undo, therefore, the lock
And thy strong power send.

More enmyes now I have
Than hairs upon my head.
Let them not me deprave
But fight thou in my stead.

On thee my care I cast.
For all their cruel spight
I set not by their haste
For thou art my delight.

I am not she that list
My anchor to let fall
For every drizzling mist
My ship substancial.

Not oft use I to wright
In prose nor yet in rime,
Yet will I shew one sight
That I saw in my time.

I saw a rial throne
Where Justice should have sit
But in her stead was one
Of moody cruel wit.

Absorpt was rightwisness
As of the raging flood
Sathan in his excess
Suct up the guiltless blood.

Then thought I, Jesus lord,
When thou shalt judge us all
Hard is it to record
On these men what will fall.

Yet lord, I thee desire
For that they do to me
Let them not taste the hire
Of their iniquity.’

On 28 June 1546 Anne was charged with heresy at the Guildhall. The next day she was taken from Newgate prison to the Tower of London to await execution. Anne is also the only woman on record known to have been both tortured on the rack in the Tower of London and burnt at the stake. She should never have been racked as she was the daughter of a knight, had already confessed, and was already condemned to die. Anne wrote letters describing her torture in letters which were smuggled out of the prison, 'And because I lay still and did not cry, my Lord Chancellor and master Rich took pains to rack me with their own hands till I was nigh dead.'

July 16, 1546, she was martyred in Smithfield, London. Unable to stand as a consequence of the torture she endured at the Tower of London, Anne had to be carried to the stake on a chair. She burned to death, along with three other Protestants, John Lassells, John Hemley ('a priest') and John Hadlam ('a tailor').

So, I am finishing off my blog post of International Women's Day 2017 and I grab an old pad for a few more amends and I see on the page edges of my pad a name, marked in pencil. My name. This must have been a pad whilst I was studying for my GCSEs. To see my own teenage writing made me think about myself. Not only the dreams and aspirations I had as a 15 year old but also now. To think that at the same age, Anne’s family forced her to marry Thomas Kyme, a local Catholic landowner, after the death of her sister who was engaged to him. All I had to overcome at that age was my GCSEs.

Would someone describe me as willing to take risks, confident and courageous like Edith Cavell, Fanny Burney or Anne Askew? Or, more importantly, would I?

You can learn more about Anne Askew amongst others on my Murderers and Martyrs London walk.

Thames River Crossings Event - Saturday 13 May, 2017

March 7, 2017
Thames River Crossings Event - Saturday 13 May, 2017



The first London bridge

The first bridge in London to span the Thames was built by the Romans in AD55 using piled structures for the foundations. It was located where the current London Bridge stands. It has been rebuilt many times since. A small trading settlement grew up around the wharves and bridge which later became known as Londinium.

The Thames depicted in Art
French Impressionist Claude Monet painted the Thames three times. 'The Thames below Westminster' painting depicts the river, Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament on a spring day and can be seen in room 41 at the National Gallery. 

The Thames, a vehicle for music
Handel’s Water Music premiered on 17 July 1717, when King George I requested a concert on the River Thames. The concert was performed for the King on his barge and he is said to have enjoyed it so much that he ordered the 50 exhausted musicians to play the suites three times on the trip.



Frost fairs in London
Between C17th and early C19th London, cold winters would sometimes freeze the surface of the Thames. The first recorded Frost Fair was held 1608 with tents, side-shows food stalls and ice bowling. The last fair was in 1814 where an elephant was lead onto the river at Blackfriars bridge. 

The is a wonderful large slate engraving by Southwark sculptor Richard Kinderley depicting a frost fair underneath the southern arches of Southwark bridge and reads:

'Behold the Liquid Thames frozen o’re,

That lately Ships of mighty Burthen bore

The Watermen for want of Rowing Boats

Make use of Booths to get their Pence & Groats

Here you may see beef roasted on the spit

And for your money you may taste a bit

There you may print your name, tho cannot write

Cause num'd with cold: tis done with great delight

And lay it by that ages yet to come

May see what things upon the ice were done.'

The inscription is based on handbills, printed on the Thames during the frost fairs.

If you would like to learn more about London and it's crossings Saturday 13th May 2017, The Dockland History Group will be holding their 6th annual conference at the Museum of Docklands. The programme is filled with interesting subjects and speakers such as Hazel Forsyth, Curator of Museum of London who will be talking about Frost Fairs, Guy Taylor will share with us The incredible disappearing bridge mystery and Chris Everett will be sharing his thoughts on Waterloo Bridge: 200 years in the London Psyche.
