With 2018 fast approaching, here’s a look back at Love London Love Culture’s top posts of  2017… 

First listen to One Night Only from the Leading Ladies debut album: this year has seen the leading Ladies release their debut album and this first track that was released from the album has proved popular on Love London Love Culture for the last few months.

Profile of Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra: with the orchestra having performed at this year’s BBC proms and embarking on a European tour, Love London Love Culture wrote a profile piece on the sixth oldest orchestra from the United States.

London Musical Theatre Orchestra’s performance of Mack and Mabel at the Hackney Empire:  this concert was a real privilege to watch with its strong cast including Natasha J Barnes almost blowing the roof off the Hackney Empire with her astonishing performance.

One Last Thing (For Now), Old Red Lion Theatre:  Althea Theatre’s lovely production that celebrates language and love through a selection of stories that span generations and eras was a real highlight in March. Hopefully the production will come back to London soon.

Alice in Winterland, Rose Theatre:  the Rose Theatre’s 2017 festive show is an imaginative adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

ISHQ, Sadler’s Wells: 2017 saw Love London Love Culture paying a visit to Sadler’s Wells for the first time to see this first Anglo Punjabi Sufi musical, which with a bit more work has some potential.

Pussy Riot exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery: the Saatchi Gallery announced in October it would be presenting an exhibition on Post-Soviet Union protest art over the last 25 years.

Together Again by Alfie Boe and Michael Ball:  the two singers have collaborated once again to release a brand new album that includes songs such as ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ and ‘Evermore’.

Memorial unveiled to honour 64 Freemasons awarded the VC in WWI: in April, a ceremony took place to honour the 64 freemasons who were awarded the VC in World War I and the presentation of special commemorative stones bearing their names.
