When designer David Carter opened the doors to his wondrous East End Queen Anne townhouse it soon became a boutique hotel of choice for creative types lapping up the interiors as much as the generous hospitality. You don’t have to get a room to experience the ambience though as a fabulous programme of monthly happenings open his stylish pad to a wider audience. Bedtime Stories at the 40 Winks guesthouse takes going out to a different level – it’s staying in but not as you know it. Expect teacups brimming with Hendricks gin confections and a dearth of bunny jimjams. Cuddle up with a lover, a friend (or even your teddy) and prepare to be whisked away to the Land of Nod as a range of performers weave their mischievous magic. After all, you’re never too old for a bedtime story. / Miranda Thompson
