The best Mother’s Day events in London
2018 marks 100 years since The Representation of the People Act was passed, giving (some) women the right to vote in the UK for the first time. Take a closer look at some of the less well known suffragettes whose perseverance made it all happen at Votes for Women, an exhibition from the Museum of London.

Diciannove Italian Restaurant
This Crowne Plaza Hotel restaurant and bar was once, many moons ago, known as Refettorio - with Giorgio Locatelli at the helm, no less. Today, it still follows an Italian theme, with a menu showcasing classic plates from across the boot, served in a grand, Grade II-listed setting. They feature alongside dishes designated 'signatures': think fresh burrata served with asparagus and balsamic vinegar, chargrilled swordfish with cherry tomatoes and rocket salad, and casarecce Calabrese - pasta with a fresh tomato sauce, n’duja sausage, Calabrian olives and parsley. Desserts range from affogato and zabaione to tiramisu and plates of Italian cheese. Six bottles sourced from Spain, France, Chile and New Zealand are the only concessions on an otherwise all-Italian wine list - even the bubbly options are proseccos or sparkling Venetian reds. Expect Italian beers, too.
Venue says: “Taste some great Italian produce with our two-course menu! Choose any one antipasti and secondi from the set menu for £18.50 pp.”
