What started out in 2015 as a blog to document a collection of memoirs about living in Soho for over a decade – and general ramblings about life in the most dynamic corner of the world – has quickly turned into something much more EXCITING!
Soho is undoubtedly London’s most dynamic district, and as a resident living in this thriving area which uniquely attracts a diverse pool of people, I got thinking – why isn’t there a tangible directory of local businesses for consumers?
In this pilot issue, I share a personal account of my daily life as an urban gal navigating through Soho (and an attempt to create a guide of some of my essential places), we review Chinese pancakes through a hatch, hear how a Soho-based artist went from being homeless and a drug addict to empowering youth through art, get a coffee fix up on Denmark Street and acknowledge Sustainable September this autumn with a visit to Reign Vintage on Berwick Street.
With the magazine launch in sight (think TIME OUT of Soho!), My Soho Times will become a means to connect businesses, brands, services and community voices directly with the wider London audience and visitors from all over the world.
We have so much more to share with you in our launch issue this Winter – the 2020 Vision of Soho’s next Decade…
I look forward to having you on board this journey!
