All Hallows’ Eve sees the return of our Jack The Ripper Tours. It will commence at Discount Suit Company, 29a Wentworth Street, where you’ll receive a hot punch upon arrival, to warm your cockles before you embark on your amble
You’ll then slalom the backstreets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields, guided by Simon Whitehouse, a blue badge holder and mentored by Donald Rumelow – “THE leading authority on Jack The Ripper”.
You’ll learn of both, Jack’s exploits and the bungled investigations that followed.

John takes requests from friends of The Sun Tavern. Hear Miles Kane, Carl Barât, Brix Smith and more, picking their tunes to get us through lockdown.
John introduces an extended mix to get you through lockdown with big, big tunes from start to finish, reminding us all of of those DSC nights.
Hear songs from The Temptations, Billy Garner, Salt and more, while John tells of Jamaican influence on Hip-Hop, and The Marvelettes influence on The Beatles.
March’s guest sees us collaborate with Empirical Spirits who’s expertise lies in super-artisanal, and sometimes seemingly, off-the wall spirits. Nothing But The Plum is based upon their liquid, The Plum, I Suppose, which leans heavilly on the addition of plum kernel, giving a nuanced marzipan appeal. A tart fruity kick is gained from White Vermouth and a milk washed plum jus brings yet more fruit and an added creamy mouth feel.
