Places to celebrate Bonfire Night

Places to celebrate Bonfire Night

When the clocks change and the nights suddenly begin much earlier than you’d like, there’s only one thing that can really cheer you up and that’s Bonfire Night fireworks! Celebrated on the 5 November and falling on a Thursday this year, there’s no reason you can’t wrap up warmly and head down to one of London’s many fireworks displays.

As we leave the summer pop-ups and al fresco dining behind us and head into the winter months, there is always a requirement for people looking for chef jobs in gastro pubs, bars and restaurants across the Capital. Whether you are interested in a permanent chef jobs or perhaps just a temporary chef jobs to earn some extra cash before Christmas, we have some fantastic opportunities so please get in touch.

Let’s Get Smashed

No we’re not referring to the alcohol type of smashed but rather the tennis variation. You guessed it, it’s time for the annual Wimbledon Tennis Championship and as always we’re very excited.

Sadly not all of us have the luxury of taking two weeks off work to enjoy Wimbledon. At a push, we’ll wake up at the crack of dawn to queue for prime court tickets, but even then, that’s probably unlikely, especially for a true Londoner.

So how can enthusiasts make the most of London’s prestigious tennis fortnight? We have two recommendations.

  1. Avoid the crowds and arrive after 5pm. Not only will you most likely stroll right to the front of the queue, but you’ll also bag yourself a ticket for anything between £5 and £18 and you don’t even have to take a day’s leave. Many of the matches go on until 9:30pm, meaning you’ll have at least four hours of tennis viewing and the chance to soak up some of the atmosphere in the grounds.
  1. Replace Murray Mound with one of London’s Wimbledon screenings. There are a number of really cool screening pop-ups across the Capital. Find the one closest to you, take a packed lunch and pop a squat during your lunchbreak. Better yet, head there for some after work sundowners, the atmosphere is sure to be electric.
