If you love classic ITC shows, then 10th September 2011 is a date worth noting, as that's the date for The Persuaders 40th anniversary.
Sadly, Tony Curtis is no longer around, but Sir Roger Moore will host the event at Kent House, Knightsbridge. Get there at 6pm for a food and drink reception, followed by an HD screening of two episodes (the event is also promoting the HD reissue of the series), then a Q&A and signing session with Sir Rog. That costs £40. Play the top-end £80 and you get an advance copy of the Blu-ray set, plus the opportunity to schmooze with Sir Rog and get your Blu-ray signed. The original Aston Martin from the series will also be on hand, should that float your boat.
All tickets are limited and available from the Network website. You can find out more about the Blu-ray set here and see over the page for a restored clip of the show.
Skandium crops up quite frequently on these pages as a seller of classic Scandinavian design. Well, as you know, that classic design usually comes with a significant price tag so bargain hunters should make sure they get down to the Skadium sale shop which started on Saturday and runs until 20 February.
The idea of the shop apparently sprang from when the owners of the store were offered Hans J Wegner furniture by Carl Hansen at reduced price. They've promised 50% to 80% off all stock which includes other Retro To Go favourites like Marimekko. Artek, Fritz Hansen and iittala.
The shop is based at 235 Brompton Road, London, just down the road from its South Kensington store. The building is a grade II listed Victorian former jewellers shop, so offers an unusual contrast to Skandium's usual aesthetic.

If you happen to find yourself in one of London's most exclusive areas over the next three weeks, you may be interested in doing a pop-in at The Modern Danish Warehouse pop-up shop.
From this Saturday 6 March, a disused Art Deco garage in North Terrace, Knightsbridge will be given over to the sale of (as you may have already worked out from the name) Modern Danish furniture: from tables and chairs to sideboards and sofas. Prices apparently range from £100 to £1500 but I imagine you'll have to get there pretty soon after it opens to snap up the cheaper pieces.
As a reminder that the furniture tradition is alive and kicking, the shape will also showcase the work of young Danish designers Anders Folke Anderson and Nina Tolstrup.
The shop is open until 27 March 2010. Find out more online
