Welcome to our 25th episode of Cultural Capital (hurray!). Despite the alarmingly mild weather all the indicators are that it is actually winter, the official indicator of the change of seasons being that you can now go ice skating at Somerset House. We headed down there to talk to the team behind Skate Lates, making your experience of wobbling around in circles culturally enriching.
We’ve also paid a visit to the V&A to find out more about their absolutely stunning new exhibition, Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution, which among many other incredible things contains the biggest collection of Imperial Easter Eggs to go in display in a generation.
We’re at the Sir John Soane’s Museum for Thing of the Week, and I’ll be reviewing Benedict Cumberbatch’s tense new film set in 1920s rural Montana, The Power of the Dog, written and directed by Jane Campion – her first movie in twelve years. Spoiler alert – it’s brilliant.
