Big news for Bowie fans (so that'll be everyone, then): Lazarus, the musical he co-wrote with playwright Enda Walsh, and one of his last works, is coming to London for the first time after breaking box-office records in New York. Based on the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, it stars Michael C Hall (of Dexter fame) as the titular stranded spaceman, and features soundtrack of Bowie classics as well as new compositions. Consider it one last transmission from the real-life starman.

There is nothing that is not good about fondue. It's MELTED CHEESE, for goodness sake. With bread, meat and deliciousness on sticks to cover with said melted cheese, all the while wearing our cosiest knitwear (which may also get covered with melted cheese, but hey). And with this in mind, may we direct you to new pop-up supper club The Lodge. Clapham's answer to an Alpine ski cabin, here you'll snuggle up amid heavy checked blankets, sip mulled cider and hot cocktails, and dine on… wait for it… MELTED CHEESE. Yep, the Neal's Yard fondue is the star of the show, prepared by Michelin-level chefs and alongside gourmet small plates such as gin-cured salmon and wild boar apple sausages. Diet friendly? Probably not. But frankly, we don't give edam.
