April is THE month to celebrate life and leisure by the river. Not only has spring brought the river back to life, but it’s time for the Rendez-vous Tall Ships Regatta.
The four-day festival, over the Easter weekend, will be a hive of activity for all ages. From welcoming the fleet with an ‘opening spectacular’ to finishing with a farewell fireworks display before the ships set sail for Canada; we’ve listed all the festival highlights on page 26.
For those seeking culture this Easter, why not make the 20 metre ascension to ‘tour’ the Painted Hall Celling at the Old Royal Naval College? Described as the Sistine Chapel of the UK, it really is a sight to behold. You can read more about this major renovation on page 8.
It’s also a great time of year to get back into the habit of eating al-fresco. After hearing about the wonderful array of food and drink at RARE farmers’ market at the Royal Arsenal riverside, we’ll know where you’ll be heading to, to fill those rumbling bellies.
That’s not all for our Easter issue - we’ve got more on interiors, education, finances and spring weddings; so sit back (preferable somewhere sunny) and relax.
Enjoy the issue!
