    The launch of Dom Pérignon's new 2005 vintage is shrouded in secrecy.

    Having matured for nine years at the chateau in France, the latest golden liquid will be presented in a town house somewhere in Holborn. Apparently the pop-up called Les 3 Étages will be transformed to celebrate a specific Dom Pérignon vintage per floor, getting darker and more mysterious the higher up the house you go. One detail that has been released however, is that of the chef: Skye Gyngell (if you haven't been to her Somerset House restaurant Spring yet, get booking.) Gyngell has been charged with divining a menu to match the wines for tastings, lunches and dinners over the weekend of 9th-10th May. 

    Getting hold of Les 3 Étages tickets is equally mysterious. Register your interest on the website and if your application is accepted, only then will the address will be revealed.

    It's understandable why Dutch authorities fought a 10-month battle trying to prevent Laura Dekker from sailing round the world alone. She was just 14, a child, who should be at school.

    But where there are rules, there are exceptions. Maidentrip, the documentary made with footage taken by Dekker on her two-year adventure, tells the tale of one exceptional girl's longing for life on the ocean waves and the freedom of being alone. "I was born on a boat in New Zealand. I spent the first five years of my life at sea. And ever since, all I've wanted to do is return to that life," says Dekker. The film sees her grow up against a backdrop of dreamy rainbows, sunsets and leaping dolphins. But then the weather turns and without parents, friends or a back up boat, Laura has to face the elements alone.

    Maidentrip, which won SXSW Audience Award in 2013, will be shown by The Bright Young Things Film Club on April 23rd at the May Fair Hotel followed by a skype Q&A with the director Jillian Schlesinger.
