The Tuesday Twist: 17 April
Dust off Your Running Shoes!
This weekend the world will tune in to watch the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon. Whether you are running, walking or cheering from the sidelines, this will no doubt be an event to remember! This annual long-distance running event, which is classed as part of the World Marathon Majors, has taken place every Spring since March 1981.
Since its founding, more than £68 million has been allocated by The London Marathon Charitable Trust in total to more than 1,200 recreational projects and the runners themselves have raised in excess of £890 million, which has gone directly to charities of their choosing.

The London Marathon Expo will run from Wednesday 18 April to Saturday 21 April and the actual Marathon will take place on Sunday 22nd April. For all the ins and outs of the event, visit the official website below.
As the runners and spectators take their marks for this weekend's Marathon, we are excited to see the amazing photography that emerges, capturing the juxtaposition of both athlete and architecture. The iconic structures and buildings that line nearly every street in London are without a doubt some of our favourite and have served as our artistic inspiration.
From the Gothic-style Houses of Parliament to the modern London Eye, our artwork strives to capture the rich architectural history of London while incorporating a unique twist of colour!

Spring in the City
If you are heading to London for the marathon, why not carve out a bit of time to take in the city at the most glorious time of year? While London is a great place to visit at any time of yeer and in any weather, it's at its finest at the heart of Spring! Not only is the city a blooming garden, there are less tourists compared to summer, and ample amounts of events to attend!
