Love London Love Culture’s Year in Review: 2019

We round up the year with a selection of the most popular reads on LLLC in 2019.

Review of The Lost Love Speakeasy: taking place in May this year, we went along to experience a lovely 1920’s style immersive experience in (of course) a secret location. Complete with a meal inspired by the flavours of South Carolina, The Lost Love Speakeasy was a cool and fun way to spend an evening.

Review of Hugh Jackman’s world tour at The O2: a real highlight of the year was catching the actor performing songs from musicals he has been in including Les Miserables, Beauty & the Beast and of course The Greatest Showman. Lively and entertaining it was a really memorable evening.

Preview of Chihuly Nights at Kew Gardens: another popular read on LLLC this year was our preview piece on this special evening event that took place at Kew Gardens over the summer. As the sun went down, visitors could experience Dale Chihuly’s work in literally a whole new light.

Review of Doctor Zhivago at Cadogan Hall: Lambert Jackson Productions presented this wonderful musical in concert form at Cadogan Hall in September. The concert starred Ramin Karimloo and Celinde Schoenmaker and was a musically rich and rewarding evening.

Interview with Emma Pritchard: earlier this year we chatted to Emma about taking her show Armour to the Vaults Festival and has gone on to be our most read interview of the year.

First look at Aladdin at the New Victoria Theatre in Woking: as pantomime season came upon us, our article giving readers a first look at the cast in costume has proved popular particularly in the last month.

Twenty things to look forward to in 2020: thinking ahead to 2020, LLLC picked some of the things that we are most looking forward to next year – including the arrival of Frozen the Musical.

Preview of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theatre: one of the productions that seemed immensely popular on LLLC was Nicholas Hytner’s immersive take on Shakespeare’s beloved comedy.

Interview with Robert Rhodes: we chatted to the actor about taking on the role of Quasimodo in Iris Theatre’s production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden over the summer.

Interview with Kalungi Ssebandeke: Emma Clarendon chatted to the actor about starring in Blood Knot at the Orange Tree Theatre.

Review of Soul of Shaolin at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre: this year saw the opening of this brand new theatre and LLLC popped along to catch the limited run of this production filled with spectacular use of martial arts.

Review of Westlife’s The Twenty Tour at The O2: LLLC has had a few trips to The O2 this year and another immensely popular read was our review of Westlife’s most recent tour. Packed with their biggest hits, it was the perfect welcome back for the group – perfectly setting up the release for their new album Spectrum.

Interview with Joseph Potter: we chatted to the actor about starring in Candida at the Orange Tree Theatre – currently playing until the 11th January.

Victoria and Albert Museum’s 2020 exhibition programme: as one of the most popular London museums, it is not surprising that our post about what to expect at the V&A in 2020 has proved to be popular.

Interview with Laura Elphinstone: the actress chatted to us about starring in Rutherford and Son at the Crucible Theatre earlier this year.
