    An Evening with Nigella Lawson

    Nigella Lawson’s smash-hit latest cookbook, Cook Eat Repeat, debuted in October last year – meaning that while it became a welcome source of lockdown culinary inspiration, its beloved author wasn’t able to carry out an in-person book tour. Good things come to those who wait, however, and now everyone’s favourite domestic goddess will be bringing her signature charm, wit and kitchen expertise to a string of venues across the country, live in conversation on the book’s recipes and essays. An evening with Nigella? What could be more delightful.

    Glow at RHS Wisley

    There are some upsides to the shorter days and darker evenings autumn brings: namely, the opportunity to see one of the country’s finest gardens lit up in a spectacle of stunning illuminations. Wander the light trail through RHS Wisley’s Seven Acres, Rock Garden and Wisteria Walk and revel in nature like never before, transformed into an other-worldly vista. There’s even a selection of on-the-go food and hot drinks on offer along the way, for an al-fresco experience to remember.

    Lubaina Himid at Tate Modern

    Lubaina Himid CBE has been making her mark on the contemporary art scene for some four decades: a leading figure in the British Black arts movement of the 1980s, who went on to win the Turner Prize in 2017. This hotly-anticipated exhibition at Tate Modern is a fitting tribute to her influential career, constituting her largest solo show to date. Known for her powerful figurative works, often exploring themes of identity and cultural history and femininity, the new exhibition will span 50 pieces across a prolific variety of media (from painting to sound work), with an immersive, scene-by-scene format inspired by Himid’s knowledge of opera and theatre design.

    City Lights at Glyndebourne

    Charlie Chaplin’s 1931 silent romantic comedy, City Lights, remains a touchstone of cinematic history, legendary for its wit, charm and style, as well as for tugging on audiences’ heartstrings. It follows Chaplin’s best-known character, the Little Tramp, as he falls in love with a beautiful, visually-impaired flower seller, who mistakes him for a rich benefactor. Penniless as he may be, the Tramp vows to help the flower girl restore her sight, aided by a drunken millionaire. Head to Glyndebourne’s stunning opera house to see the classic film grace the big screen once more, with world-class musical accompaniment performed by a live orchestra.

    Manteca opening

    Lauded for his nose-to-tail approach, mastery of cooking over fire and expertise with hand-rolled pastas, chef Chris Leach is now setting up shop in a stylish restaurant in Shoreditch – sure to be a jewel in the crown of east London’s dining scene. Manteca’s new home will feature a theatrical open kitchen, wood-fired oven, and a glass-panelled hanging room for house-made butchery and salumi; a stand-out feature of Leach’s Italian-inspired menu, drawn from his travels around the country. Expect dishes like the genius fried pasta scraps (no-waste cooking has never been so tempting); wild mushroom ragu with toasted spelt and egg yolk (pictured); brown brown crab cacio e pepe; and decadent chocolate tart to finish, with sophisticated whey caramel and olive oil.
