I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine! I can’t believe it’s nearly April – this year seems to be flying by. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been going on in London over the weekend…
– Archaeologists excavating the site for the new Crossrail discovered skeletons buried in the ground, and it has been found that they were victims of the Black Death, which killed millions in the 14th century. They’re going to extend their search for more victims, which will hopefully help them understand more about the pandemic.
– A new TV channel dedicated exclusively to London news and culture is launching today. It’s called London Live and will broadcast 24/7. If you want to check it out, it’ll be available on Freeview channel 8, Virgin Media channel 159 and Sky channel 117. Find out more here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-26808641
– The European premiere of Divergent (read our book review here) took place this weekend in Leicester Square, with the stars of the show, including Kate Winslet and Shailene Woodley walking the red carpet. The film is released on April 4th.
– The clocks went forward an hour on Sunday morning – that did not help my jetlag but its nice feeling like summer is coming, especially now it stays light past about 6pm! (Although the grey skies this morning are not encouraging…)
And finally, this Saturday was Christina’s birthday – yay! So a huge Happy Birthday – lots of cake and presents and wine to celebrate!
