Open Senses Festival
Open Senses is a festival for every woman, man and child to hear, see, feel and experience – the very first of its kind. The festival (19-21 May) positions London as the world-leading centre of excellence in sensory practice. The festival invites people to come and open their noses, tastebuds, and skin to the world; to notice and savour the natural, physical environment around them. Sensory practice not only encourages accessibility and inclusivity, but champions communication free of prejudice as it's not dependent on language. Sensory practice builds deep connections between people and their environments. Open Senses will showcase sensory practice as a powerful tool to evoke true human emotion and create warm, lasting memories.

Antigua and Barbuda beach shack
The first ever Caribbean-inspired pop up beach shack has launched at Archer Street Bar. Grab a cocktail, get your flip flops on and be transported to the laid-back glamour of Antigua and Barbuda with its picture-perfect beaches, sublime sunsets and warm welcome. Inspired by the popular hideaway to A-list celebrities like Elton John, Eric Clapton, Lord Sainsbury and Sir Paul McCartney, this fun London hot spot will offer live singing shows and ice cold holiday cocktails. Antigua’s authentic roots will shine through the Rum and Calypso themed live entertainment and music acts during the evenings. A thatched shack will be centre stage and a 180 degree panoramic view of the Shirley Height’s deep orange and purple sunsets will be surrounding you. The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has also recently launched a new Beach Bar Trail to show visitors some of the best spots across its 365 sun-soaked beaches - from foodie gems to romantic hotspots, party bars to hidden hangouts that only the locals know about. Perfect for a fun night out with friends or to exclusively hire for your upcoming tropical-inspired summer party, the Antigua and Barbuda Beach Shack at Archer Street Bar will offer a sizzling combination of upbeat music, colourful cocktails, delicious Antiguan snacks and real pure white sand to sink your feet into.
