Fulham Estate Agents proudly sponsor local music open day

Music School in Fulham

Music School in Fulham

On 18th May 2013 from 10am to 3pm Lady Margaret School in Parsons Green will play host to the Music’all Open Day, which will be sponsored by Fulham Estate Agents  James Pendleton.

Established in 2008, Music’all is a charity run extra-curricular music school.  The dedicated team of tutors and musicians provide a fantastic opportunity for local children to develop their skill and awareness of music in a vibrant and welcoming environment.  Lady Margaret School, one of the schools highlighted as outstanding on James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Fulham local area guide, has hosted the school’s Saturday classes since 2011.

Music’all offers classes for both musical beginners and those with advanced levels of skill, and develops young people’s musical ability and awareness via a range of teaching techniques from one-on-one tuition to full orchestral rehearsals.  One of the most exciting aspects of the programme is that children progressing beyond foundation level are given the chance to test a range of instruments before choosing their own specialism. Besides improving musical proficiency, a Music’all child will have a great opportunity to make friends and develop social skills.

The Music’all open day is a chance to introduce your family (and yourself-the school also runs an adult choir) to the team and discuss the music education options best for you.  The school is a great way to introduce children and families to music, and is home to a thriving community.  Look out for advertisements for the event James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Fulham and Parsons Green billboards, and if you’d like to find out more about the event or the school don’t hesitate to contact us at socialmedia@jphomes.co.uk

Boma: Our recommended restaurant in Fulham & Parsons Green

Boma Restaurant Wandsworth Bridge Road

Boma Restaurant Wandsworth Bridge Road

A vibrant meeting place along the pretty Wandsworth Bridge Road Boma can be distinguished by its sunny terrace, elegant bar and friendly staff.

Popular with residents and the team at James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Fulham & Parsons Green office alike, Boma caters for all occasions from breakfast meeting to evening soiree and boasts a diverse and well researched list of wines and cocktails to suit every occasion.  What’s more, Boma is an active and enthusiastic contributor to local events and offers its clients a variety of exciting offers: currently visitors to Boma on Sunday or Monday night will receive 50% off their food bill with a new ‘BFF’ scheme!

We spoke to Kieran, the manager of Boma restaurant on Wandsworth Bridge Road, about life in Fulham.

  1. What’s your most important ethos at Boma?

We’ve turned away from the expensive and overcomplicated cuisine for a drinking and dining experience that is accessible to everyone. Informal yet refined.

2.  Could you tell us more about the inspiration behind your food and drinks menus?

The design of the menu is based upon crowd pleasing classics as well as what we love to eat ourselves. We change the menu with the season and source all our produce locally. As for drinks, we all love cocktails and wine so we try and target likeminded people with our offerings. They tend to go down a bit too well!

3.  What is your BFF scheme and could you tell us more about the special promotions you offer to your customers?

BFF – Boma Friend Forever – is a scheme we launched to reward our loyal customers after 2 years of business. A £2 donation to breast cancer research gets you a BFF key ring. This allows you to get 50% off your food bill on Sunday and Monday evenings from 6pm. No questions asked!

4.  Do you have a favourite Boma dish?

Starter wise, our hand dived scallops are always a winner and for mains, I struggle to choose between the steak tartare and the rack of lamb.

5.  How do you feel about working on Wandsworth Bridge Road and do you have any favourite local haunts?

I love Wandsworth Bridge Road. The community spirit is so locally driven and hard to find elsewhere in London. If I wasn’t involved in Boma, it would be without doubt the kind of place I’d frequent. However with bias aside, I’m a huge fan of Thaiphoon and The Greedy Buddha is also a wonderful example of Nepalese cuisine.

6.  Do you have a favourite Boma story / which event at Boma has gone particularly well?

Boma tends to make people do some pretty funny things. What happens behind our doors tends to stay there but there are always the moments we fondly like to recant. Inebriated girls designing their own cocktails around their friends nicknames, wine tasting evenings, live music nights and people dancing to Meat Loaf like there’s no tomorrow. All in a Saturday night on Wandsworth Bridge Rd!
