A new theatrical production about Bletchley Park has opened in London. Mechanical Thought’s hit immersive show Illicit Signals Bletchley is the first production of the year from Colab Factory. Running throughout January, audiences will be transported to Bletchley Park in war torn 1940s Britain, where they will work alongside historical codebreakers to crack Enigma messages and uncover war-winning secrets.

You cannot miss Boisdale of Belgravia. The strawberry-red frontage stands out like a Highland hunting lodge amid the upmarket estate agents (a set at Albany for £4.3 million, anyone?) and the fly-by-night delicatessens that look like reckless gifts from hedge-fund managers to their trophy wives. En route to our lunch appointment we paused to pay homage to the good old days of Belgravia by admiring the plaque outside Lord Boothby’s house of ill repute on Eaton Square.

London Boy Lou

in Am I Chap? by

“Wondered if you’d ‘ave the time to assess the sartorial credentials of this dandy in the underworld,” writes London Boy Lou. “What could be more indicative of one’s immense chapability than writing about oneself in the third person, eh?” A decent command of the English language? However, we are actually impressed both by Mr. Boy Lou’s fashionably unhyphenated double barrelled surname and his dapper backstreet gangster ensemble that, for once, is nothing like a character from Peaky Blinders.
