Before I begin the account of my first festival experience, it might be a good time to explain why my 28-year-old, party-adoring, find-any-excuse-to-drink-before-midday self has taken so long to get pitched. You see, I thought they were all about the music.

Scrap the BBC Licence Fee: Pay More, Get Less

Robin Lustig | Posted 10.09.2014 | UK
Robin Lustig

As a sales pitch, perhaps it leaves something to be desired. "Pay more, get less." Who could resist? Yet for reasons that I have never understood, that's exactly what's on offer from those people who argue that it's time to scrap the BBC licence fee and switch to some form of subscription-based financing.

What Does 'The End of Hipster' Mean for 'Mipsterz'?

Furquan Akhtar | Posted 05.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Furquan Akhtar

Personal experiences of hipsters are a far cry from Williamsburg, New York but instead it was like watching pockets of East London being swallowed up by a swarm of skinny jean wearing, flat white drinking locusts. As preened men were dubbed "Metrosexuals" and "scallies" evolved into "Chavs"; in my circle "Indie" became "Hipster".

Tiffany London

The 'Made in Britain' label, it seems, is making a comeback. Marks & Spencer has done it for the high street, Mary Portas has done it for knickers, and my maternity wear label Tiffany Rose has done it for the plethora of pregnant women out there looking for beautiful, flattering and well-made dresses.

David Spereall | Posted 20.06.2014 | UK Universities & Education
David Spereall

Banning things because you don't agree with them sets a dangerous precedent. Exiling The Sun because of page three at a uni's campus of a few thousand people may appear to be a fairly innocuous move in the grand scheme of things, but there is a key principle at stake here.
