on
18th February 2019
Everyone loves pizza. It’s hard not to. What once was a student staple - everyone’s late night best friend – has now become something of an artisanal craft. Forget the cheese-filled crusts of Dominos, the 2 4 1 deals at Pizza Express, and the sweetcorn of Pizza Hut, pizza is undergoing a revolution and it wants to be taken seriously.

CITY GUIDE: Date spots in Birmingham Barbara Cartland would approve of…

on
13th February 2019
One of Birmingham’s more prolific exports is the famed romance novelist Barbara Cartland. Noted in her lifetime both for holding the world record for most books published in a year (a whopping 26!) and for being one of the bestselling authors of all time, Cartland was a self-proclaimed expert on the amorous – you kind of have to be if you’re going to write over 700 novels on the topic. Born in 1901 in Edgbaston, Birmingham, she would likely be thrilled to see how many spots the city now boasts that are perfectly-suited for the pursuit of romance. If Valentine’s Day has dried up all the inspiration for your love life, here are a few date spots in Birmingham that we’re sure an aficionado like Ms Cartland would approve of. Affairs of the heart are for all year round, after all.

IN CONVERSATION WITH: Isa, Street Artist

on

Just along from Cambridge Heath Overground Station there’s a rather unassuming looking cornershop. Aside from selling the usual fruit and veg, scratch cards and discount booze, it seems odd to think that this shop holds great significance for someone who hails from as far afield as Miami.
