Off to see Wizard…and the new C-G!

Hi Everyone!

Brits in LA have had a very busy week – we went along to welcome our new Consul General Chris O’Connor Tuesday night at the official residence in Hancock Park. A lovely event as always, packed to the rafters with fellow Brits and I have to say they serve the best hors d’oeuvres in town! Then we dashed off to our own event at the Fahey/Klein gallery honoring the winning photograph taken by Daylon Soh depicting his idea of ‘Hunger’. Thank you so much to John Scott of Heifer International,  for putting on such an elegant event.

This week we are off to see the Wizard (of Oz), opening at the Pantages Theater (6233 Hollywood Boulevard). New songs have been added to the musical, written by fellow Brits, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Runs until October 6th. Wonder if they will catch on…?

Social Media Week is coming up this fascinating and growing event tells you all you need to know about Social Media and building your brand. For more information either visit our website at www.britsin.la or socialmediaweek.org. I am very interested in the following events myself: Breakfast with the BBC + Quora – Find Your Voice, Find Your Audience and Art in the Age of Digital Discovery: Saatchi Gallery, London + Saatchi Online.

Did you know that Hulu are bringing 144 BBC shows to its video-on-demand service? Visit hulu.com to see what they have on offer.

Something for those of you on the Westside (finally, I hear you say!) – Malibu Playhouse is putting on a production of The Dream of the Burning Boy now through October 13th and are offering half-price tickets for Brits in LA members, plus free wine! Visit our website Britsin.la for all the info. The Playhouse is located at 29243 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

If you’re looking for cheap, temporary wheels be sure to check out Express Rent A Car, run by Brits in LA member Zoe. She has cars available from $18 a day plus they rent to under-26 year olds too, which is quite a rarity!

As always we have our weekly Breakfast Club presented by Next Stop LAX every Tuesday, rain or shine at Cecconi’s on the corner of Melrose and Robertson. We also have another pub quiz scheduled for October 15th at the Pikey in Hollywood, so make sure to mark your calendars!

That’s all for this week – feel free to drop us a line at info@britsin.la if you have any questions or would like to share something with our members.

Cheers!
