Summer 2018

Dear Readers


Hello Greenwich! A new neighbourhood addition to our readership and we are delighted to welcome new advertisers and life stories from SE10 and SE3.

I recently learned that married couples live longer and in this season’s River we have plenty of wedding-related topics. There’s a new alternative wedding venue, fabulous high-end glassware gifts and something for theatre enthusiasts ‘Home, I’m Darling’ – a tragic-comedy about one woman’s quest to be the perfect 1950s housewife.

The culture scene is very exciting too with a host of art legends featured at the Tate, a new play from Alan Bennett (‘Hallelujah!’) at The Bridge Theatre and the fabulous Venessa Kirby (recently Princess Margaret in The Crown) is ‘Julie’ at the National.

Enjoy the sun & have a great summer!
