As the world takes some time to celebrate the achievements of women all over the world, London will be doing the same thing. On Friday 8, March 2019, London will join the world to commemorate and celebrate the countless achievements of the female gender. At the same time, people will join to recognize the numerous gender disparities that still exist in the present world. It will be a day for forums talking about what you can do to create a fairer and more balanced world. Don’t miss out, search for important and fun events you could participate in even if its just attending. Just like the other times, there will be events and talks held all over London to mark the special day. Too bad the Women of the World (WOW) is sold out but you could still go through the solid line up of events that may still run into the weekend.

Once again pancake day is here. Held every year 47 days before Easter Sunday, this year’s pancake day falls on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Expect London’s best restaurants to go at it this year hosting pancake events like flipping competitions where pancakes and pans are provided. All you need to bring to the table is your flipping skills. Historically, it is known as the Shrove Tuesday and marks the last day before Lent begins. It is a day of abstinence that was traditionally marked by the clearing of cupboards of things like fat, eggs, and sugar. However, today it is known as Pancake Day because it presents a great opportunity for you to use such ingredients as well as have some fun at it. Look out for events like pancake races you can take part in, although, if it's too much, sit down at a restaurant and enjoy delicious pancakes.
