An Evening of Lights

Lights, we have them in our houses, workplaces, cars – lets be honest they’re everywhere. Saying that I’ve never seen lights quite like this; as the walk through experience takes Christmas decorating to a whole new level.

Following the huge success of last year’s festival, the bright showcase returned to Birmingham’s botanical gardens for a second year running. This unique experience incorporates Chinese lanterns with giant character concepts combining to curate a dazzling display.

There really is something for everyone as the Festival boasts an impressive 12-metre-long entrance float, to a variety of creative themes throughout the experience ranging from, traditional Chinese concepts, festive themes, football, animals and flowers. If that wasn’t enough the gardens are also laced with vivid (even some flashing) strip lights in and between different sculptures.

The magical festival celebrating over 2,000 years of lanterns is the perfect unique, memorable and exciting experience for the whole family to enjoy.

This year’s festival is running till the 1st of January, however check out the website below to be ready for next years.

Hard Rock Cafe Christmas Party 2018

Christmas may be over and all of the leftovers might have been eaten but before I made my way back to my family home for Christmas, I remembered I missed a post.

If anywhere knows a thing or two about good food and entertainment, it’s the Hard Rock group and they didn’t disappoint at their 2018 Christmas party.

Held at the Back Room Bar, an intimate gem behind Park Lane’s café, the venue which emulates a hearty, warm, traditional London pub transformed into a winter wonderland ready for us to rock the night away.

From great food and drinks to festive traditions and live music the night was in full swing and everyone was in high spirits curating the perfect celebration and the last event in my calendar before leaving London for a few weeks.

Overall it was a great night, in particular the endless supply of chicken wings, chicken strips and brownies- not to mention all of the passionfruit Mai Tai’s (if you haven’t tried these you really need to) The live singer Jem Tyler also kept the good vibes flowing all night.

The Hard Rock Café currently have one venue in London situated on Park Lane which I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for good food,a friendly atmosphere and an overall fun time.

The Hard Rock Café are also launching a brand new and exciting Piccadilly Circus location in 2019 so be sure to look out for that in the new year!
