14 THE ULTIMATE BRUNCH

14 THE ULTIMATE BRUNCH ON BATEAUX LONDON One of London’s top visitor attractions is serving the ultimate brunch for those looking to spend lazy summer mornings on the river. Every Saturday and Sunday in June, July and August, Bateaux London will take guests on a ninetyminute cruise up the River Thames. And, along with the chance to unwind against a backdrop of iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London, guests will enjoy a breakfast brunch buffet created by the on-board team of chefs. Each cruise will be accompanied by a live DJ and guests can opt to add enhancements, such as a bottomless supply of prosecco. ‘There is something incredibly relaxing about being on the river on a summer morning,’ said Bateaux London sales manager, Gareth Brown. ‘Especially if your trip includes great food and glass or two of prosecco. We’re delighted to be adding brunch to our schedule of lunch, dinner and afternoon tea cruises – and look forward to welcoming visitors aboard.’ Cruises will all take place on Bateaux London’s Harmony vessel, which has the largest roof deck on the Thames, with embarkation at 10.00 at Embankment Pier near Charing Cross. For further information about Bateaux London sailings, call 020 7695 1809 or visit www.bateauxlondon.com REFUGEE WEEK AT SOUTHBANK CENTRE Next week, Southbank Centre has an event called Choose Love from Thursday 14 June until Thursday 5 July in which the charity Help Refugees are presenting their ‘Choose Love’ slogan in the form of a bold and powerful mural by international street artist Lakwena. On 27 June, visitors are invited to listen to music celebrating refugees at a performance by London schoolchildren. This concert Harmonise is part of Music Action International’s national school programme, which seeks to inspire empathy between refugees and people of all backgrounds. INSTAGRAM POETRY EXHIBITION AT NATIONAL POETRY LIBRARY Southbank Centre’s National Poetry Library, housed on the fifth floor of the Royal Festival Hall and home to the world’s largest collection of modern poetry, is presenting the world's first Instagram poetry exhibition. The exhibition showcases the best of over 1,000 Instapoetry submissions to the National Poetry Library since the library put a call out for Instagram poems earlier this year. The submissions range from work featuring striking typographic design to social comments and emotional confessions, as well as a selection of short Instapoetry films, providing the perfect introduction to this emergent form of poetry. SURPRISE BABY AT LONDON ZOO When Tobi the tamandua moved to ZSL London Zoo last October as a companion for female Ria, keepers hoped to someday hear the pitter patter of tiny tamandua toes. So they were overjoyed when just five months later they spotted a tiny baby clinging to Ria’s back, making newcomer Tobi a very fast mover – when keepers did the maths they discovered that Ria must have fallen pregnant the same week they met. Ria has kept the baby – nick-named ‘Poco’ by keepers – close to her since the Easter Monday birth, tucking the youngster away in a hollow log. But the two-month-old has now started to tentatively venture away from mum to explore its Rainforest Life home, which the tamanduas share with two-toed sloths Marilyn, Leander and baby Lento, Emperor tamarins, red titi monkeys and fruit bats. The nocturnal mammals (Tamandua tetradactyla), part of the anteater family and native to South America, are impressive climbers, holding on to mum will enable the infant to build up the valuable muscles needed to climb easily through the tree-top branches of London’s only living rainforest. Juvenile tamanduas spend the first three months clinging to their mothers’ backs, sliding down to feed before pulling themselves back up to nestle into mum’s fur. They have fantastic camouflage as their distinguishable matching patterns align to create one continuous stripe, allowing the young pup to avoid the eyes of predators. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e

Gareth Edwards, 'Cedars of Lebanon', oil on canvas, 100 x 110 cm, 2018 GARETH EDWARDS ‘SHIFTING BRILLIANCES’ Gareth Edwards’ second solo exhibition with Jill George Gallery continues until 16 June with a series of new paintings inspired by the landscape and seascape. The title phrase, ‘Shifting Brilliances’, is taken from a mid-career poem by Seamus Heaney’s ‘Seeing Things Collection’. This book of poems is the inspiration for his personal research into contemporary landscape painting for the last twenty years, as well as being connected to the birth of his first daughter. ‘Shifting Brilliances’ in the poem, refers to flickering images of a half remembered time and place. This new collection of paintings are a continuation of a pre-occupation in contemporary landscape painting and increasingly, images that use half remembered, half imagined places – far off places only dreamt of, but never visited, current places known, but observed through half opened eyes, but all rendered in a slightly higher tones and attention to detail than in Edwards’ previous work. The Shifting Brilliances in these paintings conflate with the shifting sparkling surfaces painted across the fractured surfaces, occasionally coalescing in, to focus on the detail of a tree, as seen in ‘Cedars of Lebanon’ then out of focus again in the rendering of atmospheric weather conditions. These are both poetic narratives and atmospheric abstracts of the artists’ vision of the natural world. Gareth Edwards lives and works in St Ives in Cornwall. He exhibits regularly with Jill George Gallery in London and in Art Fairs both internationally and within UK. His work is included in many public and Private collections. Jill George Gallery represents paintings, drawings, watercolours, monoprints and limited edition prints by British Contemporary artists from the established artist to the recent graduate. There is an exhibition every five weeks and a selection of originals and prints is always available. To continue the Gallery's interest in young artists, there is an exhibition every eighteen months of recent graduates. It also donates a prize to the Royal College of Art printmaking department and offers an exhibition alternate years to six graduates. The exhibition, ‘Shifting Brilliances’, is at 30 Tottenham Street, off Charlotte Street, W1T 4RJ. The nearest underground station is Tottenham Court Road. www.jillgeorgegallery.co.uk Witness, oil on canvas, 55 x 57 cm, 2018 Gareth Edwards 15 t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e
