The Glass Menagerie

Rose Theatre, Kingston

Tickets still available for opening weekend! Starring Geraldine Somerville (Gosford Park) as Amanda, Tennessee Williams’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece explores, love, loyalty and family.


Cher Thai


This quaint, family-run restaurant in Old Town is one of Clapham’s best-kept secrets. From the drinks menu, you can order a Coconut Malibu which is served in a real coconut with the classic dinky little umbrella, or a Cher Thai Island, which is a Thai take on the Long Island Iced Tea featuring a deliciously flavoured Thai iced tea. Their noodle dishes are to die for, particularly the yellow curry noodle soup cooked with coconut milk and oil noodle, beansprout, spring onion, fried shallot and lime, served with a choice of chicken, beef, vegetables, tofu, prawn or duck.
