FOOD AND DRINK
Pancake Day is coming! But if you can't stand the thought of whipping up different toppings and doing all the washing up, head to MAMIE's in Covent Garden.The genuine crêperie and cidrothèque, that's cider cellar to you and me, is full of quirky crepe creations, from the chateaubriand crepe to the buckwheat samosas. And for the gluten-intolerant, MAMIE'S also serve galettes which are coeliac friendly.

Garden of Light
On Wednesday 1 March, a poignant installation will be set up outside St Paul's Cathedral to mark the Great Daffodil Appeal 2017. A total of 2,100 handmade daffodils will be planted in Paternoster Square, with each flower representing a Marie Curie nurse. Members of the public can walk through the illuminated Garden of Light installation and post messages for loved ones on the memory wall.
The daffodils 'grow' from a series of mesh-infused stands and will illuminate each evening, symbolising the care provided by Marie Curie nurses and the light they bring in the darkest hours.
The Great Daffodil Appeal is Marie Curie's biggest annual fundraising campaign, taking place throughout March. Visitors have until 12 March to visit the installation and make a donation in return for a daffodil pin.
