Editorial: Hung up in Hyde Park

Princess Madge is taking up the column inches this week.

Kanye West might be hiding in Shoreditch, Jack White making a rare Hackney appearance this June but it’s been Princess Madge taking the column inches this week. She’s had the headlines and is about to have a tidy windfall, with the announcement these will be her highest ever London ticket prices when they go on sale tomorrow (9th Feb), starting at just £70 for a ticket to her Hyde Park show on July 17th.

There’s been another middle finger salute from Sabbath man Bill Ward, who this week has rejected the laminated reunion contract for something altogether more ‘signable‘. His old band of brothers still, publicly at least, want him onboard. Even Sharon has said as much. But it’s looking increasingly unlikely the original four will be walking out onto hallowed Donington tarmac come June.

We’ve had a frozen week of snow-capped transport horror and heating woes, but it’s not all bad news. Anna Hyams found out the fashion tips for a top snow festival experience, and we rank our top five to check out this spring.

Until next week.
