Axwell /\ Ingrosso To Headline Steel Yard London In May

Axwell /\ Ingrosso have announced that they’ll be dropping a headlining performance at Creamfields Presents Steel Yard London next year. The Swedish DJ duo will be bringing their signature brand of dance music to the UK on Sunday May 28, 2017 for Bank Holiday weekend for what will surely be an unforgettable event.

Having previously sold out the 10,000 capacity Liverpool Steel Yard in less than 24 hours, Axwell /\ Ingrosso are a natural choice for headliners at the upcoming concert. The show will be held at London’s Victoria Park, with more artists to be announced in the coming months.

We’ve already learned that Eric Prydz will be unveiling his new Epic 5.0 stage production one day prior on May 27 at Steel Yard, so fans are definitely in store for a memorable weekend festival. Axwell /\ Ingrosso and Prydz are reason enough to make it out to the event, and we can only imagine at

7 Reasons Why You Should Eat Ice Cream In Winter

Universal Pictures

When approaching any brightly coloured, fun filled ice cream van while strolling through the local park, or approaching the chilly world of the freezer section in your local supermarket, there are certain items of ice cream confectionary that you expect to find. Its next to the syrupy sweet flavoured ice lollies and plain tubs of ice cream that you’ll find one of the nations favourite iced treats – Cornetto.

For nearly 60 years since ice cream manufacturer Spica overcame the quandary of how to put ice cream in wafer without turning it soggy, Cornetto has become one of the best selling frozen dessert brands around the globe. Whether you’re in Britain, mainland Europe, Se Asia, or in fact most countries in the world, you can rest assured that Cornetto is always on hand to satisfy those taste buds.

While you may think of Cornetto as a sturdy stalwart

Christmas film events 2015

The best of the season’s festive film offerings, from a screening of Elf under Waterloo Station to The Snowman in Manchester with live orchestral accompaniment

Like Slade on the radio or unwanted socks from a distant relative, there’s something both comfortingly familiar and dispiritingly predictable about the traditional Christmas movie canon. But if you can’t change the movie, you can at least alter the surroundings. Even a cheery old chestnut like It’s A Wonderful Life or Home Alone can feel brand new again with the right combination of themed decor and heated alcoholic beverage; and fortunately, in London at least, there are myriad options this year.

One such is The Winter Night Garden (E3, to 23 Dec), part of Victoria Park’s Winterville. Decked out as a Narnia-like enchanted forest (but indoors) it offers a selection that also includes non-Christmas films (Inside Out plays this afternoon) as well as the traditional favourites.

Wong Fu Productions’ Feature Film ‘Everything Before Us’ Heads To Vimeo

Wong Fu Productions has secured a distribution partner for its first feature-length film. The YouTube group, founded in 2003 and comprised of Philip Chang, Wesley Chan, and Ted Fu, will release the movie Everything Before Us exclusively via Vimeo On Demand on June 3, 2015.

Originally premiering at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on April 23, Everything Before Us is a science fiction romantic drama set in a modern day world not terribly unlike our own, except for the fact a person's romantic history is documented like a credit score. The flick focuses on a couple trying to overcome the inherent drawbacks of the system for individuals who haven't had a lot of luck in love.

Everything Before Us stars Aaron Yoo (The Tomorrow People), Ki Hong Lee (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Randall Park (The Interview), Brittany Ishibashi (Political Animals), Victoria Park (Raven’s Touch), and Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder).

Babylon, Ep. 1.04: “Victoria Park” is full and fast-paced

Babylon, Season 1: Episode 4 – “Victoria Park

Written by Sam Bain

Directed by Sally El Hosaini

Airs Thursday nights at 10 on SundanceTV

Following a surprising turn of events, both for the plot of Babylon and in the context of it being a young series, “Victoria Park” shows more depth and heart than could possibly be expected of a semi-satire comedy of this type. There’s almost too much to talk about here, so maybe it’s best to start small.

The final montage of “Victoria Park” perfectly encapsulates what this episode is up to and gives each character a rather striking final moment. Even Tom, essentially the buffoon of the group, shifts around during his Quaker meeting, certainly considering speaking about losing his boss so tragically. It has been hard to take Tom seriously hitherto if just because of that wonderful smile Jonny Sweet imbues him with, but that actually works

Prince Harry Has a Playdate at Olympic Park With Adorable School Kids—See the Pics!

Prince Harry Has a Playdate at Olympic Park With Adorable School Kids—See the Pics!
Just when you thought Prince Harry couldn't get any cuter... The redheaded royal showed he's still a kid at heart Friday when he gamely joined group of school children on the playground at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. London Mayor Boris Johnson tagged along, too, but after having stuck on a zipline last year at Victoria Park, the zany politician decided to let the prince test out most of the playground equipment. Harry, 29, made his way across a wobbly bridge, chatted with the children and even took a turn himself in an oversized swing. It was clear from the royal's smile and the laughter of the kids' around him that he has a way with kids—perhaps thanks in part to his role as an...

‘Bloody Homecoming’ Review

Stars: Jim Tavaré, Rae Latt, Lexi Giovagnoli, Alex Dobrenko, Randi Lamey, Branden Lee Roth, Taryn Cervarich, Elizabeth Bigger, Shaleen Cholera, Grainne McDermott, Jesse Ferraro, Steve Earnest, Victoria Park, Hilary Wagner | Written by Jake Helgren | Directed by Brian C. Weed

Three years earlier Billy Corbin died trapped in a fiery storeroom. Now the ones who let him burn are attending their school homecoming party and it could be their last. It’s payback time without pity for the young, the foolish and the beautiful. One by one they disappear, each meeting a gory, terrifying end. The corridors of Winston High are dark, slippery and wet with the blood of those who came before.

First off, you’re probably all aware of just how much I love slasher movies. If I have one particular genre love (behind 80s teen flicks I might add) it’s 80s slashers. I could never get enough

The Runners: why we interviewed people jogging for a film

Would people be more open about their lives if interviewed while jogging? One pair of film-makers decided to find out

"Who are you?" panted the stranger running towards me. It was 6.30 on a crisp winter morning in Victoria Park in east London and I was sitting on a plastic stool being pulled backwards by a bicycle.

We were trying to understand what goes on in the minds of runners as they charge through the streets. What does it do to them and what can we find out about ourselves by interrupting them at this moment of vulnerability and clarity?

Film making is an extraordinary opportunity to ask people questions that you can't ask at any other time. When you have the camera there, you are asking questions on behalf of anyone who might see it. In a way you have the public on your shoulder. The problem though is that it's always on your terms,

The Joy of Six: Australian sports movies

From Nicole Kidman on a BMX to Collingwood on the big screen, our pick of the best sport films

1) Save Your Legs

There are a couple of pretty fail-safe ways to stop a conversation dead in its tracks, but one of the best is to try and convince someone that they need to go and see an Australian movie. If that Australian movie happened to be about a cricket team, it wouldn't be out of the question to suggest that your co-conversationalist might just turn and walk at pace. Which brings us to Save Your Legs, surely one of the least-loved Australian films of recent times and with no good reason; this film is actually half-decent.

It's quite admirable that an Australian filmmaker would multiply their odds of failure by making a film like this one. We're often told that cricket is the sport with the richest and most voluminous literary canon,

Watch: Dame Helen Caught On Video In Four-Letter Rant

Watch: Dame Helen Caught On Video In Four-Letter Rant
Dame Helen Mirren has shown her sense of humour is still intact, stepping out wearing a special T-shirt, following her four-letter outburst in the guise of The Queen.

And some amateur video has emerged of the incident, which took place over the weekend outside the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End. Watch Above.

In the video, Dame Helen can be seen in a blue cardigan as part of her costume, berating the drummer and gesticulating at the nearby theatre where, it can be surmised, she was struggling to be heard over the drums.

The Oscar-winning actress was happy to pose for photographs on Sunday, wearing a customised T-shirt that promoted As One In The Park, a new Lgbt festival to be held in Victoria Park over the next May Bank Holiday.

Dame Helen can see the funny side now

But the back of her top referred to her tirade against
