London Essentials: August 2011

Join Phil Stocker and guest host Katie Bilboa as they discuss two great new happenings going on in London in August 2011. The first being an exclusive exhibit at the British Council called Gagarin in Britain, named after the first ever cosmonaut to make it to space, Yuri Gagarin. This new exhibit can only be seen two days a week for one hour a day and contains some of the first ever space gear to be created and used. Be sure to make your reservations ahead of time and click here to find out more! Then, Phil happens upon a fanciful store in the East End called Les Trois Garcon that ends up being even more than the "Little Shop of Non Horrors" it first appears to be.
