The London Bridal Show returns to Olympia in March for three action-packed days, during which more than 200 exhibitors will showcase their collections for the coming season to buyers from across the globe. 

The London Bridal Show will take place in the National Hall of Olympia in West London, within walking distance of a fine selection of restaurants and theatres, making it easy to enjoy a great night out after a busy day spent buying for the coming season and networking with industry colleagues at the show.  


London Super Comic Convention: 14th – 15th March

ExCeL London - Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL

We suspect some seriously special cosplay is being planned for the fourth year of this huge comic con featuring legendary special guests, dozens of exhibitors, nearly 100 artists, internationally renowned costume makers and some festival exclusives.

Award-winning writer, editor and illustrator Neal Adams (who's worked on 'Batman', 'Superman' and 'X-Men' amongst others) will be in attendance, as will Marvel Comics illustrator John Romita, Jr. Guests are invited to get dolled up and enter the London Super Costume Championship, for which the grand prize is a trip for two to Dragon Con in Atlanta.

Mother’s Day: 15th March

Show your appreciation to your mum and treat her to an unforgettable Mother's Day in London. From pampering experiences to leisurely lunches, West End shows to afternoon teas...the options are endless, so go ahead and spoil your mum!

Mother's Day is a popular date for dining out so book restaurants in advance and make sure you mention any special offers at the time of booking.

Share the magic of a musical with your mum. Choose from the Top 10 London Musicals or one of the many other world-class productions now on. Remember to check performance dates and times as not all productions have Sunday shows. Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest days of the week so it's a good idea to book well in advance! 


St Patricks Day in London: 15th - 17th March

Various venues

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day on and around the 17th March with a parade through central London and a spectacular festival in Trafalgar Square.

St Patricks Day Parade

Every year London hosts a St Patrick's Day Parade with marching bands, floats, street theatre and more. All 32 Irish counties are represented, dressed in their traditional county colours. Other parade participants include members of London's Irish community and other Londoners. 

This year the parade will make its way down Piccadilly at midday on Sunday 15th March, on a 1.5 mile route passing some of London’s most iconic Landmarks including the Ritz, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, before passing on to Whitehall.  Among the numerous marching bands, dance groups and sports clubs you'll easily spot the five metre tall firebird breathing a fountain of sparks and a 10-metre high St Patrick.

St Patricks Day Festival in Trafalgar Square

The free St Patrick's Day Festival in Trafalgar Square is a great chance to experience Irish culture: you can enjoy traditional music, dancing, comedy and film, and sample produce from the Emerald Isle. The 2015 festival will be held on 15th March and is set to be a dance fest.


X Factor Live in London: 20th – 21th March 

The O2 - Peninsula Square, London SE10 0DX

Tube: North Greenwich  

Witness the nation’s biggest music show in person at the O2 Arena!

The television phenomenon has been making musical dreams come true for more than a decade. Watch hopeful singers show off their vocal talents live. Television viewers have been following the singers every inch of the way, as they've endured everything from boot camps and judges' houses, to studio recordings and the nail-biting public voting.

Having navigated the highs and the lows of the contest, they can start to fulfil their dreams of performing to vast arena crowds. Audiences can expect moving renditions of classic songs along with crowd-pleasing performances of favourites from the television show, as the best eight performers demonstrate that they have that elusive X Factor spark.


Rowing - Head of the River Race 2015: 29th March at 12h00

Tube: Hammersmith 

Now into its 89th year, the Head of the River Race is one of London's oldest sporting traditions.  Every spring, 400 crews from around the globe take to the waters of London's famous river Thames to compete in this historic boating event.

The race was started in 1926 and today sees hundreds of boats, each manned by eight men, row the length of the 4.25 mile (6.8km) championship course from Mortlake to Putney.  It is customary for the previous year's winner to start first.  They are followed at 10-second intervals by other crews in finishing order, and finally, the new entries start in alphabetical order.  

We recommend heading to Chiswick Bridge to see the crew off, cheering them on from Barnes Bridge as they gather pace, or watching them approach from Hammersmith Bridge. All of these locations can become very busy, so get there at least 45 minutes before the race begins in order to secure a good spot!

Wedding Dresses 1775 - 2014: until 15th March 

Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum, Cromwell Road, South Kensington, London SW7 2RL

Tube: South Kensington Station

The V&A turns its attentions, and not inconsiderable costume collection, to the subject of marriage, and in particular the evolution of the wedding dress over the past two hundred years. 

When did white become the norm? And how have notable fashion designers from Norman Hartnell and Charles James to the outré John Galliano, Christian Lacroix and Vivienne Westwood and classic Vera Wang put their own mark on this iconic form? 

Augmenting the V&A's own pieces will be some new acquisitions and loans such as Dita Von Teese's purple dress (worn when she married Marilyn Manson) and the outfits worn by Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale on their wedding day.


The Art of the Brick: until 12th April 

Old Truman Brewery, Loading Bay, Ely’s Yard, 15 Hanbury Street, London E1 6QR

Having already wowed audiences all over the world, this travelling exhibition is one of the most extraordinary and innovative in recent memory.

Olympia, Hammersmith Road, Kensington, London W14 8UX
Tube: Kensington Olympia
London's annual equestrian fiesta graces Olympia once more for a full week of galloping, jumping and pinpoint dressage steps.

see if there is anything that takes your fancy.

 

Football has always been a huge draw for people visiting London and as the capital now has six teams (Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, QPR, Chelsea, West Ham & Fulham) in the premier league there is always a high profile match at weekends. Tickets can be tricky to get hold of for some games but it is always worth asking the question at reception.

Museums and galleries  are always a great way to spend an afternoon. Whether it’s wondering what the latest feature piece in the Tate Modern actually means or enjoying old (and we mean prehistoric!) classics like the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, there will always be something to see.

If your request is something simpler – perhaps a recommendation for a good local bar or restaurant – then please do not hesitate to talk to our team. We work closely with many of the local businesses and will have a number of exclusive offers with some of our favourite local places that we can offer our guests soon!

 

If we can be of any assistance, no matter what the request, please just let us know: soho.info@thenadler.com
