VE Day (or Victory in Europe Day) on the 8th May will be slightly different this year due to the very necessary lockdown conditions. But that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in style!
Isolation Station starts tonight for a wknd of music supporting local artists like Fugitive Orchestra and Dutch Criminal Record as well as Raw Kids from Berlin (Who I can’t wait to hear live!) In such strange times it’s great that music can still be promoted for us to listen to. Ella from ‘Missing’ Promotions really wanted to do something that involved a live stream that could showcase artists in a fun way and make us feel like we are having a cool wknd! I am totally up for that, are you? This means you can dance along in your kitchen and even get your friends to do the same at their house.

The UK’s first-ever Sake brewery, Kanpai- meaning ‘cheers’ in Japanese- has been on my radar since it first launched in 2017. So when an invite to the trade and press tasting of their limited ultra-premium Junmai Ginjo Sake hit my inbox, I leaped straight on the train to Peckham Rye…
Hack Pompey, what is it? and how can you get involved? Well, it is one of the biggest hackathons on the south coast and offers an exciting weekend where all kinds of people join together for two days to come up with innovative ideas and plans to make something they have been wanting to for ages and never got around to! From fashion to game jams, product design to architecture, the choice is yours as to what you want to be involved in. It’s completely free which is an added bonus and this year’s theme is sustainability. Offering this theme gives people a chance to think about how the design or build they make today will have an impact on their environment or community tomorrow.
