Night & Day: 1930’s Fashion & Photographs in Bermondsey

The Fashion & Textile Museum on Bermondsey Street will be opening their latest Winter 2018 Exhibition this weekend called Night and Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs. Following on from the success of 2017’s 1920s Jazz Age exhibition with the same theme, this exhibition will focus on a decade of design that saw off the excess of the Jazz Age and ushered in the utilitarianism of World War II. Exploring the day and evening styles of the decade, complemented by photographs of stars who championed them, you will be able to see fashion through a 1930s lens and the social change that came with it. Only across the road from our London Bridge office, drop in and say hello to our team if you’re interested in looking at properties to rent or properties to buy in the area.

A Very, Very, Very Dark Matter in London Bridge

Coming to the Bridge Theatre this weekend is the world premiere of A Very, Very, Very Dark Matter by Martin McDonagh and directed by Matthew Dunster. Hans Christian Anderson played by Jim Broadbent, works in a townhouse in Copenhagen. Famous for his fantastic children’s tales loved by millions, the true source of his stories dwells in his attic upstairs but her existence is a dark secret kept from the outside world. Famous for his National Theatre and Broadway hit The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh’s new play travels deep into the abyss of the imagination. On until 6th January, head to the Bridge Theatre to see this dangerous, twisted and funny play.
