Looking forward to the week ahead? We keep you posted on what the coming days have in store, including events of interest, upcoming adventures and insights from the next edition of the magazine

It’s time to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Horse, which will officially start this Friday. Luckily, London knows how to do it in style, as our Chinese community organises the world’s biggest celebrations outside Asia. Head to Duncannon Street at 10am on Sunday 2 February for the traditional parade – there will be lion dances, floats, firecrackers and Chinese dragons. After that, enjoy some delicious and Michelin-starred Chinese food – both Yauatcha in Broadwick Street and Hakkasan in Tottenham Court Road will offer special menus.

On Tuesday evening, the global CEO of Christie’s is coming to London for a reception. I’m hoping to ask him a few questions about how he sees the future of the art market – where will its centre of gravity? who will be buying? and what will they be buying?

It’s a good week for classical piano enthusiasts as today (27 Jan) John Lill will be playing Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas at Cadogan Hall, followed by young German pianist Martin Helmchen performing a selection of Bach, Schumann and Schubert at Queen Elizabeth Hall tomorrow (28 Jan). Then on Wednesday you can enjoy another historical experience, as you look around the Charles Dickens Museum (his restored former home, pictured below) in the evening by candlelight – to recreate a Victorian ambience and also because Dickens often wrote by this means.

Philanthropy takes many guises and while everyone is familiar with the funding of cultural foundations and institutions, the role of philanthropy in high level management at top companies is an association not typically made. I’m therefore looking forward to learning more about the Sainsbury Management Fellows this week and how they’re hoping to improve the UK economy.
