If you want to celebrate Englishness on our national day, where better than ... a French restaurant! Dans Le Noir - 30-31 Clerkenwell Green EC1R 0DU
Well, we owe them a lot the French: constantly losing battles, their tempers and all those Olympic bids. It was Kipling who said "If you can eat your dinner while all around are losing theirs" - or something like that. The English are experts at doggedly finishing a meal in a blackout, only this time instead of the Luftwaffe, the noise will be made by Effing 'n' Blinding! Despair and die as our four knights in their blinding armour of darkness charge forth and lance you with their celebration of all that's spiffing about ye merry England and on Shakespeare's birthday too, from the verse of the Bard to the songs of witty wheelchair-users and gay men. In a break from tradition, there will be no irony. Honest.guv.co.uk
