This Week 29th August - 4th September

29 August 2016 Stephanie Brandhuber

September - can you believe it’s here? The smell of sharpened pencils and the sign of leaves beginning to change may be ominous signs for some, but it certainly doesn’t have to be! Make September your month to do all those fun, exciting things that you were just too busy to do at the start of the summer. Here are a few great things happening around London this week to get you started.

Georgian Dining Academy
 
This evening of feasting and entertainment gives attending guests an historic dining experience, transporting them back to the Georgina period. Fun, frivolity, and fine dining are guaranteed as you step back in time and into the world of candlelit banquets and billowing gowns. Located within a chophouse established in 1757, diners will experience an unforgettable three-course supper and theatrical entertainment, which includes short talks about the Georgians and the City of London, music, poetry, and song.


 
The Georgian Dining Academy takes place on September 1st at 7pm, located at Simpson’s Tavern, Ball Court 38 ½ Cornhill, London EC3V 9DR. Tickets from £60. Book online here.
 
Providence Row presents Dellow Nights

Providence Row, a homelessness charity based just off of Brick Lane, is inviting everyone to Dellow Nights, an open evening where you will see, hear and taste how the charity is helping to end homelessness in East London. The evening will feature inspiring art, wonderful live-music, and delicious food at the charity’s East End Centre, which has two beautiful urban gardens to enjoy during this fun summer evening of entertainment.
 

Dellow Nights takes place on 1st September 2016 at Providence Row, 82 Wentworth Street, E1 7SA. 5pm-8pm, Free Entrance.
 
Royal College of Physicians
 
The Royal College of Physicians’ newest exhibition, To fetch out the fire: reviving London 1666, marks the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London, giving visitors a unique chance to see the city’s historic devastation through the eyes of a doctor. The Royal College of Physicians was itself burnt to the ground in September 1666, and thanks to the remarkable collections that survived the fire, visitors can follow the story of the capital’s 17th Century doctors as they were divided by war, battled with the plague, and almost died in the flames.


 
“To Fetch out the Fire: Reviving London 1666” will run from 1st September – 16th December 2016. Located at the Royal College of Physicians, Regent's Park, London, NW1 4LE. Monday-Friday only, 9am-5pm, Free Entry.
 
 Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre
 
Concluding this year’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre Summer Season is the acclaimed production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice adapted by Simon Reade. Universally loved and quintessentially English, Pride and Prejudice was first staged at Regent’s Park in 2013 and has returned once more as we approach Jane Austen’s bicentennial in 2017. This open-air production is directed by Deborah Bruce, and will star Matthew Kelly as Mr. Bennet, Tafline Steen as Elizabeth Bennet, and Benjamin Dilloway as Mr. Darcy.


 
Pride and Prejudice will run from 2nd – 17th September 2016 in Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Inner Cir, Westminster NW1 4NU. Book tickets online.
 
Tribal Art London Fair
 
Tribal Art London is the UK’s only art fair devoted entirely to selling fine and original purpose works of art from international specialists in non-Western art. From Peru to the South Pacific, from Asia to Africa, this exciting art fair will give you the chance to purchase beautiful pieces both ancient and contemporary. 22 international sellers will be unveiling their pieces, which include dance masks, metalwork, textiles, early photography, contemporary paintings, and tribal adornments, to name just a few.



Tribal Art London will run from 1st-4th September at Mall Galleries, The Mall, SW1.
