Kindness

Kindness is a solo music project featuring British musician, producer, & singer Adam Bainbridge.  His music is odd, defiant, experimental, playful, & free pop music that captures the attention of every thinking person.  It is music by and for the kids, that doesn’t take itself too seriously, even when there is a deeper meaning at heart.  His style is an unpredictable combination of funk, soul, disco, R&B, and jazz that makes you move.

BT Tower
Built in 1965, the BT Tower is a communications transmitter tower located in Fitzrovia, London. Once a year, the BT Tower opens to the public as part of Open House. The event takes place in September and due to high demand, you need to enter a ballot for tickets. It remained the tallest building in London until 1980, when it was overtaken by the 183m-high NatWest Tower.

Hampstead Heath
This large, ancient park sits upon one of the highest points in London, offering some of the best views of the city. The park includes Parliament Hill, Golders Hill Park (zoo and butterfly house), an open air Lido, swimming ponds, and wide expanses of grassland and ancient woodland. Pack a picnic and have a dip in one of the swimming ponds and see for yourself why Hampstead Heath has inspired countless films, books and poems from Karl Marx and The Kinks to Notting Hill.
