606 Club with Caroline Loftus and Bryan Spring

Date January 26, 2010

Behind the unassuming door pictured below in the middle of West Bromptonian nowhere lies one of Europe’s finest Jazz clubs. The 606 Club got its name from its original location in 606 Kings Road, and it transferred its reputation and name to the new location in Lots Road, a residential area plus some industry such […]

Mamma Mia! indeed

Date January 24, 2010

Right. Why was I here in the middle of a wig-wearing, spandex-clad and female-dominated gathering of Abba fans? Ah yes, free tickets, always a good excuse.
