Dear England Live at Everyman Cinemas

The National’s Dear England, based on England manager Gareth Southgate’s journey taking on the team back in 2016, was a sell-out success. If you didn’t catch it on stage, you can watch a screening of the performance at Everyman cinemas across the country on Friday 25th January.  Hollywood actor Joseph Fiennes plays Southgate, charting the highs and lows of bringing the beautiful game home.

Up Your Wellness Game

Slow Motion Sauna Pop-Up

Soak up the health benefits of the Nordic sauna lifestyle and visit this pop-up from Bestival founder, former Radio 1 DJ and wellness guru Rob Da Bank. As part of King Cross’ 'Mind your Brain' mental health campaign, visitors can try step into two saunas – one wood-fired and one electric – and take a cold plunge in one of three cold therapy pools. Finish off with an exfoliating salt scrub and shower. We can think of worse ways to spend your lunch break. Book a slot for £6pp – just remember to bring your own swimwear and towel.

Lewis Cubitt Square, 11 Stable Street, King's Cross, N1C 4DR; 18th January-11th February

Meet The Boys

Great Central Pub at The Landmark London

The Landmark London has launched a Sunday roast menu at its Great Central Pub. Head chef Matt Fletcher and his team will serve the full works: roasted British beef sirloin, seasonal veg, roast potatoes, horseradish sauce, and gravy ladled over a giant Yorkshire pudding. Since his appointment at the hotel back in 2022, Fletcher has impressed guests with an unpretentious menu of British classics – think scotch eggs and fish finger sandwiches – and we expect this new roast will be more of the same: comfort food done well.
