London is a magnificent city - few places can boast the same cultural and social variety that is on offer in our capital.

Companies that build products wrapped around activities afford themselves the privilege to organise events that are very relevant to their target market's interests.
A musical biopic of Carole King might not seem the most likely of shows to secure production from the Broadway bigwigs but nevertheless we have an initial premiere at the Curran theatre in San Francisco, before the New York reviews in November.
