LFS Recommends – May 2021

There’s light at the end of the tunnel and among the benefits is the reopening of cinemas on May 17th! We’re going to stop these monthly recommendations now things are slowly returning to normal, but thought we’d squeeze in one last list for May.

As usual, the list was compiled by LFS committee chair Richard Hall and committee members Helen Hancocks and David Brook.
