Where to find the first issue of 2019

In which we nosey around the neighbourhood with fresh eyes, as well as bring you a round-up of super-exciting happenings for the new year

We’re now deep into the low-key cool of January. And the only resolution we’ve made is take a glance around the locale with fresh eyes.

Inside we’ve done just that, with a look at the stories behind three lesser-known buildings in King’s Cross that are worth checking out in 2019.

Most of you’ll be familiar with Granary Square or Coal Drops Yard, but what about the more tucked-away Platform Theatre (pictured here on our cover), which opened alongside Central Saint Martins in 2011? We find out exactly who’s behind its eclectic programme of works by students and experimental production companies alike.

Opposite is the R7 building, a striking new block that’s home to the Everyman Cinema, Happy Face Pizzeria and vermouth bar Supermax. We track down architect Joe Morris for the lowdown on how he and his team did it – whilst admiring the panoramic view from the rooftop.

Meanwhile, across the canal, author Jane Giles talks us through the history of the legendary Scala when it was a hedonistic alternative cinema.

Elsewhere inside the issue is a raft of awesome things to do across King’s Cross (and the rest of the capital) this month, and a round-up of three new LGBTQ films you can’t miss (including this one).

We also give our verdict on new N1C arrival Hicce, an all-weathers alfresco dining terrace in Bloomsbury – and even hop to Brill in Buckinghamshire for a wintry weekend break.
