Your March itinerary, made.

Sweat: VersaClimber, BXR

Is climbing the new spinning? BXR is offering Europe’s first ever climb-focused group-training concept, utilising the VersaClimber, a curious looking machine introduced in the 80s that is experiencing something of a comeback. Hardcore HIIT-sters will relish in the challenge that is BXRs HIIT CLIMB.

Watch: I, Tonya

For Allison Janey’s whip-sharp portrayal of Tonya’s mother, Lavonia but also for a behind the headlines look at the almost unbelievable scandal that rocked the 90s.

Electric Cinema, Shoreditch from March 2nd, Portobello from March 3rd, electriccinema.co.uk

Eat: Ikoyi, St James

This modern west African-inspired fusion restaurant opened quietly in July of last year. Headed by former Noma and Dinner chef Jeremy Chan and his childhood friend Iré Hassan-Odukale (who hails from the Ikoyi region of Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city) Ikoyi has since received stellar reviews. We’re making a reso right this second.

Book: Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy, Tate Modern

Dubbed Picasso’s ‘year of wonders’ 1932 was evidently one of note for the artist. The first ever solo Picasso exhibition to held at Tate Modern will take us through this pivotal year, with more than 100 works will be exhibited, including the famous Le Rêve (The Dream), the painting of Picasso’s young lover Marie-Thérèse Walter, never before on display in the UK.
