Royal Opera House

Royal Opera House has announced its autumn programme, with tickets starting from just £9. This weekend, visitors can see Das Rheingold.

Other productions in the coming weeks include the ballet The Limit by Sam Steiner (Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons) (20th-28th Oct), and The Dante Project (18th Nov-2nd Dec), both of which will be performed by The Royal Ballet.

House of Punk Pop-Up

Fashion legend Vivienne Westwood passed away late last year and the subsequent AW23 runways were filled with punk-inspired motifs, fabrics and silhouettes – from Alaïa’s pin embellishments and Saint Laurent’s tartan coats to Diesel’s ripped denim. To celebrate Westwood’s cultural impact, the House of Punk style studio has opened its doors in King’s Cross. Fashion stylist Karen Clarkson, who worked with Westwood, has taken pieces from various brands’ AW23 collections to curate a series of womenswear, menswear and genderfluid looks. Expect to see pieces from BA&SH, A.P.C., American Vintage, & Other Stories, Beyond Retro and more.
