Gambado venues allow children to play in a health, fun and safe environment whilst also learning particular developmental, social, risk taking, educational and creative skills – with a bit of exercise thrown in too! There are special toddler zones tailored for 2-3 year olds, as well as sensory areas for the under 2s. Gambado was launched in Beckenham in 2005, and has now expanded to five sites – as well as the location in Chelsea, there are also centres in Eastleigh, Edinburgh and Watford with further sites planned. Each site also supports a local charity close to them.

Do check out the Gambado website – www.gambado.com - for information on parties, private hire and membership (which allows unlimited entry for 12 months).

Garland Jeffreys at Nell’s Jazz and Blues
Doors 7.30pm, Friday 27th February 2014
Nell’s Jazz and Blues, 3 North End Crescent, West Kensington, W14 8TG
Website: nellsjazzandblues.com
Critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Garland Jeffreys will be performing at newly opened jazz and blues venue Nell’s, which was opened in December 2014 with a special appearance by Van Morrison.

Jeffreys has a loyal international audience and is famed for his intelligent and passionate songs that are informed with a variety of styles from rock to R&B, reggae to dance music that also deal with topics that are both personal and political.

He shook up the New York music scene in the 70s and 80s by mixing rock, reggae, soul, blues and Latin influences with thoughtful lyrics about race and identity. He was admired by Lou Reed, Bob Marley and Bruce Springsteen – with whom he has performed – and he borrowed from them all, as well as Van Morrison.

“A singer-songwriter of extraordinary soul and grace…whether you know it or not, Garland Jeffrey’s is musical royalty”
“This singer merits the status of an American Legend”
– Robin Denselow, The Guardian

Tickets cost £20 and can be bought online at either www.seetickets.com or www.ticketweb.co.uk.
