Uhtred of Bebbanburg (Alexander Dreymon) in The Last Kingdom

Vikings is an Irish-Canadian historical drama TV show written and created by Michael Hirst for the television channel History. Three wonderful seasons have been released and the series was renewed for a fourth season on 26 March 2015. It’s inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), his brother Rollo (Clive Standen), his son Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig), his wife the shieldmaiden Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and the princess Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland). Hard times, full of adventures and tragic moments like the Norse invasion of England and France in the 9th century.

The Last Kingdom is a British television series, an eight-part adaptation of Bernard Cornwell’s historical novels series The Saxon Stories and it focus on Uhtred of Bebbanburg (Alexander Dreymon), the orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, who was kidnapped by Norsemen and reared as one of them. Thus, his loyalties are constantly tested. The series premiered on 10 October 2015 on BBC America, and on BBC Two in the UK on 22 October 2015, and we are hooked on this show now.

In fact, The Last Kingdom is great because the characters are well drawn, the actors are excellent (I love David Dawson as King Alfred), and violence is always justified. Here, the true conflict lies in the time before swords and ideologies clash, where characters speak about their objectives, likes and loves.

But Vikings is also fantastic because the show gives us a lesson about a time and a culture which have been unknown until now. Also, it delves into the psychology of some characters who are doing history. What to say about Rollo and Lagertha? I miss them on my small screen!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
