What’s On This Weekend: English As A Second Language, Adam’s Antiques & Imagine Children’s Festival
English As A Second Language Exhibition in Westminster
English As A Second Language is a free photography exhibition currently taking place at Somerset House. Showcasing the work of two of the most exciting photographers working in fashion today, this exhibition celebrates the vitality and importance of fresh perspectives within fashion photography in our globalized and interconnected world. Employing an otherworldly and playful approach to their practice, Hanna Moon and Joyce Ng incorporate cultural signifiers, set design and fashion to present their unique take on Western aesthetics and fashion ideals. Bringing distinct Asian perspectives to their work, they challenge the concept of ‘otherness’ and reflect upon the power fashion photography holds in shaping our perceptions of beauty, style and taste.

It’s Hot, It’s Not Play in London Bridge
Reckless Sleepers is an extraordinary company who make work between visual art, dance and theatre. It’s Hot, It’s Not is a surreal, funny and carefully crafted physical performance that explores the weather in all its forms and takes delight in discovering the world anew and how we experience it differently, wherever we are. Why is it that sometimes I’m hot but you’re cold? Why are there puddles and sometimes not? How can it be sunny and rainy all at once and also not at all? This is a highly visual show with no spoken language and plenty of music and sound effects that teaches kids about weather. Not too far 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.
