Where to go in February

untitled-design

With the Festive season over, many of us look for some much needed winter sunshine and with Valentine’s Day around the corner there are some great destinations perfect for the month of love.

1. New Orleans
Is there a better time than February to visit the Big Easy? Not only is the raw humidity of the Louisiana summer yet to awaken, but the city’s most famous carnival, Mardi Gras, dominates the month. February 13 will be the big day of celebration in 2019, but you can expect a full week of parades, music, razzmatazz and merriment on St Charles Avenue and in the French Quarter in the build-up to Fat Tuesday.
Take me to New Orleans

2. Marrakesh, Morocco
The Moroccan capital is at its best in February, when days are sun-baked but rarely sweaty, and nights are refreshingly cool, ideal for downing cinnamon-spiced pastilla and rich lamb tagine. Spend the morning wandering the souks, skipping from sellers hawking handmade leather bags and sandals to those peddling rainbows of silk pashminas (don’t forget to haggle). Afterwards, plunk yourself at a garden-fringed hotel pool – Four Seasons Resort Marrakesh, Hotel price reduced from £361 to £298 just outside the souk, is one of the most tranquil hotels. Emirates are offering World Privilege Plus members an incredible 5% off flights.

3. Barbados
Powder-white sands lapped by azure waves, frosted cocktails made from punchy local rum, glitzy hotels – if you want a sultry Valentine’s break, Barbados is hard to beat. Sexy places to stay, from hideaway villas to plush resorts, line its western shores, while seafood-stacked restaurants, such as The Cliff or Cin Cin, are perfect for a sundowner tête-à-tête. The cherry on the cake? Tax-free shopping in colonial Bridgetown – because nothing says ‘I love you’ like a cut-price diamond-encrusted watch. With up 60% off over 270 Hotels to choose from your money is going a lot further with your World Privilege Plus Membership.

4. The Maldives
Some 1,192 islets and coral outcrops – stretched across 26 atolls and 35,000 square miles of water – make up this archipelago nation in the Indian Ocean. golden sands, swaying palm trees, azure shallows. If you want variety of terrain, do not visit the Maldives. If you want temperatures in the thirties Celsius and unrestrained beach luxury, you have chosen well. World Privilege Plus have partners with Maldives Aficionado membership Amilla Fushi and Finolhu Resorts (contact us directly for more details) to provide you with a host of complementary services and upgrade.

5. Oman
Neither as grandstanding as Dubai, nor as grand as Abu Dhabi (whose long-in-percolation outpost of the Louvre opened last year, while the Guggenheim has yet to be unveiled), Oman is the calmer cousin of the Arabian Peninsula. But it should not be underestimated as a possibility for winter sun. Both Zighy Bay and Sur are alluring places for beach escapes; Muscat is a city of underappreciated culture and sophistication.
Take me to Oman

6. St Lucia
St Lucia is one of the Caribbean’s most coveted destinations – and with good reason. Its west coast is home to some of the planet’s loveliest beaches, including the golden strip of Anse Chastanet – while the twin volcanic bluffs of Gros and Petit Piton offer hiking and climbing challenges, as well as wonderful photos. Discover the best kept secret in Saint Lucia and immerse yourself in true Caribbean luxury. East Winds is a breath taking tropical garden by the sea, set on a sandy, secluded storybook beach. Our Caribbean hideaway is the island’s original boutique resort, featuring 30 cottage style suites and an Ocean front beach house, tucked away amongst lush plants, trees, and a kaleidoscope of colourful bird life. Members get up to 30% off.

7. Zanzibar
This feted slice of sand and sunshine is a continental junction box – officially African in that it is part of Tanzania, seductively Middle Eastern in the mercantile heritage of Stone Town (which was once the capital of Oman), temptingly tropical in the way the Indian Ocean laps at its sides. Of course, this clash of cultures only makes Zanzibar more exotic – and the weather is largely reliable, flirting with the thirties Celsius as February dawns.
Take me to Zanzibar

8. Hawaii
There can be no doubt that America’s mid-Pacific archipelago requires quite a journey from the UK, and an 11-hour slug of jetlag once you arrive. But there are few better cures for such time difference than the soft sands of Waikiki Beach – the sunshine strip which adorns the southern edge of the state capital Honolulu, on Oahu. And the sight of the volcanic titans Kilauea and Mauna Loa, on the “Big Island”, is sure to awaken the senses.

Guide to finding and financing your new car – with special rates for WPP members from iLease

Guide to finding and financing your new car

Finding your next car can be a scary time, you have to work through a maze of not only what car to buy, how to finance it but also who to get it from.

There is so much to consider at once – different models, mileage requirements, finance types to name a few. iLease have put together this guide to help you through the vast and confusing world of car leasing and car buying.

Where to go

Cars are available to lease or buy from a variety of sources – local dealerships, franchise dealerships, online, private sellers but how do you know which sellers are trustworthy?

At iLease we have the backup of working in the car industry for over 22 years with the backing of long standing relationships with over 26 car manufacturers plus being authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). In addition, all our team (including sales and support staff) are all independently SAF certified to ensure we are at the top of our game when it comes to offering advice on financing a car.

Our online compare the market tool, enables us to show you the best leasing deals on the web helping you avoid the time consuming trawl through multiple websites trying to find the best deal.

Plus, we don’t have any hidden charges, which can be so disappointing when you think you have a great deal. A low cost monthly payment could be heightened by hidden admin and arrangement fees. With free delivery, road fund licence included and manufacturer warranty as standard, we hope you find this to be on the cherry on top to your fantastic car and leasing deal.

How personal leasing works

  • What is personal car leasing?

Personal car leasing, also known as personal contract hire, is a finance product for individual consumers, basically if you would like to lease a car in your name then personal contract hire is for you. If you wanted to lease a car under a business name, you would need to look at business contract hire as an alternative.

  • What do I pay on personal leasing?

Simply, you will:

  • Choose your car
  • You decide how many months you would like to lease the car for (this will affect the monthly cost)
  • You can pay an upfront payment (although at iLease we offer many vehicles with no upfront payment) The number of payments you choose upfront can also affect your monthly payment
  • You choose the mileage you would like on an annual basis (this will affect the monthly cost)
  • You choose whether you would like the car to be maintained by us or yourself (choosing maintenance included will affect the monthly payment)
  • There will always be a monthly payment you will need to pay for the duration of the contract

What to buy – get to grips with your basic requirements and you are halfway there

Before signing up to a new finance agreement on a car, why not sit down and ask yourself the following questions:

  • Why am I leasing a car?
  • What do I need the car to do?
  • What is my monthly budget?
  • How long do I want to keep the car for?

Once you have answered these four key questions you will be halfway there to knowing what sort of car and what sort of lease you would like to take out. Narrowing yourself down to a list of cars that you think will suit your requirements means you can start to see what deals are out there.

We find it common for our customers to completely change their mind when they start searching our site as they unexpectedly find a great deal on a car they never thought their monthly budget would allow.

iLease order process

Feel confident in how you order your new car with iLease by reading our order process from selecting your car right up until delivery.

Step 3 – You place an order iLease

We will send you your order by email and we will require your signature to confirm your acceptance of the personal contract hire agreement quoted. We will also require a copy of your driving licence as proof of identity.

Step 4 – We place order with relevant manufacturer

We will place an order with the manufacturer on your behalf. Our manufacturer network offers a very high level of service standards and back up. All vehicles are covered by full manufacturer warranty and can be serviced by your local service centre or dealer.

Step 5 – Sign your documents

Theatre Etiquette

When to arrive, what to wear, when to go, what to eat – all your theatre etiquette questions answered

When going to the theatre there are, certain rules to remember. Here are a few to get you ready for the theatre, now you’ll be prepared for anything.

What should I wear?
Although quite a few people like to wear smart clothes for a trip to the theatre, feel free to wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

When Shall I arrive?
Arriving early is essential. There are often busy queues to collect tickets, and shows start right on time. Aim to arrive at least 30 minutes before the show starts.

Can I bring food?
There’s nothing wrong with carrying a plastic bottle of water, your own sandwiches to eat during the interval, or a little box of chocolates to share with a friend.

But you will encounter a few raised eyebrows (or even a dreaded ‘tut’) if you turn up with anything that rustles, loud or smelly to eat.

Can I Drink?
Yes. In fact, sipping a glass of wine or a G&T at the interval is positively encouraged, with interval drinks available to pre-order from the bar. But most theatres will ask you to transfer your drink into a plastic cup (safety first) before you return to your seat.

When should I clap?
It’s pretty easy to work out when to clap at the theatre, but when in doubt wait until everyone else does. And enjoy yourself – this is the one part of the show where absolutely nobody can complain you’re making too much noise.

Now you are ready for an amazing evening at the theatre here are some of our recommendations all with World Privilege Plus discounts in association with our partner See Tickets:

richard-iii-1638712319-940x600

RICHARD III

‘What do I fear? Myself?’

After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.

Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.

Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.

Tom Mothersdale (The Glass Menagerie; Cleansed; John) returns to Headlong to play Shakespeare’s iconic villain, in a revelatory new production directed by Headlong Associate Artist John Haidar.

Richard III is a co-production between Headlong, Alexandra Palace and Bristol Old Vic with Royal & Derngate, Northampton and Oxford Playhouse.

13th – 31st March, Alexandra Palace Theatre.

don-quixote-1956966618-940x600

DON QUIXOTE

Following an acclaimed opening at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, Angus Jackson’s riotous 2016 production of Don Quixote transfers to the West End. Playing a strictly limited season at the Garrick Theatre, the production sees the return of David Threlfall and Rufus Hound as the iconic duo, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.

Adapted for the stage by journalist, literary critic and poet James Fenton, the production is based on Miguel de Cervantes’ original novel of the same name, which follows the adventurous title character as he embarks on his own quest of chivalry after reading countless books. Armed with a lance and a sword, he decides to become a wandering knight, rescuing the helpless and defeating the evil.

Unfortunately, Don Quixote is tremendously unprepared, and quickly loses his grip on reality. Accompanied by his loyal, but equally unprepared, companion Sancho Panza, the two set out on a hilarious, haphazard adventure in this farcical adaptation of a famous novel.

Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the production is once again directed by Angus Jackson, whose credits span numerous productions with the RSC. A hugely funny, lyrical and energetic take on a classic novel.

27 October 2018 – 2 February 2019, Garrick Theatre.

motown-the-musical-871604340-940x600

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL

It began as one man’s story…became everyone’s music…and is now London’s hottest new show. MOTOWN THE MUSICAL follows the legendary career of Berry Gordy and the creation of his musical empire, Motown Records. The story begins in 1983, on the evening of the 25th anniversary celebration of Motown, and Berry Gordy is looking back on his career. Inspired by his childhood hero, black American boxer Joe Louis, the young Berry dreams big, hoping one day to make people as happy and proud. After a few years on Detroit’s automobile assembly line he sets his sights on bringing a socially charged, racially divided country together with music. With an $800 loan from his family, Berry founds a music-making factory. Motown is born!

Berry signs a series of ground-breaking artists including Diana Ross and the Supremes, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and more. But with the Vietnam War looming and America at a cultural turning point, Berry realises the time has come to push for something bigger than he ever dreamed of, to make music that could get the whole world moving to the same beat.

MOTOWN THE MUSICAL tells the thrilling tale of the man who broke barriers and fought against the odds to define the sound of a generation – complete with the ups and downs of the personal relationships, the professional struggles, and – of course – the music that made history. Discover the story behind the beat that changed minds, touched lives and took the world by storm. MOTOWN THE MUSICAL shows how one label and its roster of legendary artists created the soundtrack that transformed America and gave the world a new musical vocabulary – the Motown Sound. With over 40 classic songs such as “My Girl,” “What’s Going On,” “Dancing in the Street,” “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” this explosive event is the next chapter of Motown’s incredible history – and an experience you’ll never forget.

22nd October 2018 – 20th April 2019, Shaftesbury Theatre.

bill-bailey-larks-in-transit-524615066-940x600

BILL BAILEY – LARKS IN TRANSIT

Following a successful UK tour, comedy favourite Bill Bailey returns to the West End with his newest show, Larks in Transit. Playing at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited run, the live comedy show guarantees to feature his signature musical virtuosity, surreal comedy and intelligence, married with topical, political tales.

Documenting his 20 years of travelling as a stand-up comedian, Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and anecdotes from a vast array of experience. Pulling into question politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness, Bill Bailey uses his well-known style of song to tell the real story of Old McDonald, fashion a symphony from a ringtone and re-imagine the Stars and Stripes.

Bill Bailey is an award-winning comedian, musician and actor, best-known for his stand-up routines and appearing on panel shows including QI, Have I Got News for You and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He last appeared in the West End in 2015 with his show Limboland, and previous tours have included sell-out shows such as Tinseltown, Qualmpeddler and Dandelion Mind, which ran at Wyndham’s Theatre in 2010.

Guaranteed to be a hilarious adventure into the mind of one of Britain’s best-loved comedians, the show promises to address serious politics with the jovial use of music instruments of all kinds.

3rd December 2018 – 5th January 2019, Wyndham’s Theatre.

the-inheritance-405765087-940x600

THE INHERITANCE

Matthew Lopez’s epic two part drama transfers to the West End’s Noel Coward Theatre following a hugely successful sell-out run at the Young Vic earlier this year.

The play has been described as Howards End-meets-Angels in America as it examines what life is like to be part of the gay community on New York a generation after the AIDS crisis. It focuses on two couples, one older, one younger, as they live through the consequences of the struggles faced by the generation before them.

Directed by Stephen Daldry, The Inheritance is at the Noel Coward Theatre from 21st September until 5th January and tickets are on sale now. Tickets for part two of The Inheritance are available here.

Stage legend Vanessa Redgrave features in the cast of the production (appearing in part two) which also includes Kyle Soller, Andrew Burnap, John Benjamin Hickey and Paul Hilton from the original Young Vic run.

In a five-star review of the original production for LondonTheatre.co.uk, Mark Shenton described the piece as ‘a play full of convincing feeling and legible fears, set in a landscape that embraces both the privileged and the dispossessed’.

22nd September 2018 – 19th January 2019, Noël Coward Theatre.

Ladies who Lunch & Drink Pink Gin Event at Babbo

17-img_4249

Following the success of The Ladies who Lunch event two of the owner’s sisters Olivia Edwards and Laura Griffin are rolling it out as regular ladies lunch event as well as many others.

The first event was in July with an incredible turn out and entertainment which raised the bar for the following event that took place last Thursday: – Ladies who lunch and drink pink gin!

Newsreader Michelle Eagleton and Irene Estry.

Babbo handed out a pink gin cocktail to the first 30 ladies (in association with Cuckoo Gin) as many arrived in flattering pink outfits to match the theme. A few VIPs including BBC newsreader Michelle Eagleton (pictured in stripy top) and an X Factor celebrity attended. There was live music by the incredible sax player Aaron Turner aka Carlo Sax Junior who was accompanied on several tracks by Carlo Sax himself (The Father & Son duo were simply electric). This followed swiftly by an incredible surprise act from the flair bar academy – Martin from the academy performed to a captive audience of mainly ladies thrusting to sex bomb while mixing cocktails and flaring. Amazing act!

There was another surprise that followed – Maxine Warner from Lemon Tree and Warner entertainment brought the house down with her rendition of Nessun Dorma.   Maxine simply brought the event to silence while she performed, simply wow!

Lucy Foden owner of the stylish boutique Lulu Dot brought a small pop up boutique to showcase some of her AW18 collection and jewellery which went down a treat with a few purchases made

Stylish décor captured the event by Rose & Lee with a retro theme

The £9.95 lunch menu has proved to be a winner with guests, many coming back and re booking. There was a prosecco offer for £12.95 and cocktails were made for several birthdays and an anniversary of competition winner Lolanda Taylor.

Carlo Sax & Aaron Turner, Cuckoo Gin, Bliss Flair Academy, Maxine Warner, Lulu Dot Clothing, personalised biscuits.

Olivia and Laura say: – “We are simply overwhelmed with the response from the ladies lunch events so far” It is really getting our name out there as a recently rebranded restaurant – formally Saporitos. Babbo (Italian for Dad) has brought a whole new style of clientele for the restaurant as well as maintaining the loyal regulars and families which is what we are well known for”.

The event was organised by The Edge Events who work closely with the restaurant, assisting with PR and events as well as managing the guest list and all the finer details.

Babbo are delighted to announce their next event: – Macmillan coffee morning followed by Ladies who lunch. There will be live entertainment and a luxury raffle. The event will take place on the 28th September from 11.30 – 3pm.
