OB Diary: Five Things To Do In April

  landscape-nature-sunset-trees2   London's blossom trees are in full bloom and we're officially packing away our chunkiest of knits. It must be April! Read on for our top tips, events and ideas for the month ahead.   1 - Plan your Grand National outfit The biggest race of the year is upon us and all eyes are on Aintree. But what to wear? We recommend our three-piece tweed suit in a distinctive check pattern.   2 - Attend the new Rolling Stones exhibition The highly-anticipated 'Exhibitionism' opened 5th April. Head along to the Saatchi Gallery here in Chelsea to soak up London's musical heritage. It’s a fully immersive event packed full of costumes, personal diaries, instruments and rare audiovisual footage – a must for Stones fans everywhere, so do book in advance.    3 - Dine somewhere new Tom Sellers' new restaurant 'Ours' opens this month on Brompton Road. We're promised fresh, seasonal European cuisine and striking interiors (complete with trees growing through the building itself!) After the success of the much-lauded Restaurant Story, we can’t wait to see what comes next. ours restaurant   4 - Plan a getaway

We're sure you're aware of the impending May bank holidays, but we're already thinking of a weekend escape. We’re big fans of the UK getaway and look forward to exploring the countryside. 

  5 - Buy an umbrella Well, it IS April. There's no need to be caught out in the frequent showers if you own a beautifully-made, traditional umbrella with a curved wooden handle. Even if it doesn't rain, it's a handsome accessory that’ll see you through years of great British weather.
