Top 13 Predictions for 2013

Top 13 Predictions for 2013

Another year is upon us and with it comes brand new possibilities, calculations and forecasts. With that in mind, we pool all our resources and look to the future to give you our lucky Top 13 Predictions for 2013.

2012 was an astonishing and remarkable year. In Britain, the nation’s patriotism and pride was fired up (quite literally) for the London 2012 Olympics, while the Diamond Jubilee brought us all together in celebration of our national history and heritage. Across the pond, America re-elected Barack Obama as President of the United States, while here in the UK, the cracks began to show in our coalition Government.

In this month’s issue, we take a look at what we think is on its way in the New Year. One thing is for certain, an iconic Hollywood actor turns 70 this summer – yes, the Raging Bull himself, Robert De Niro, reaches his three score and 10 – can it really be possible? We predict that the Oscar winning Godfather star will remain possibly the coolest man on the planet, even as that landmark birthday looms. With eight films in the pipeline over the next two years, this true acting legend shows no sign of slowing down as the years pass.

So, that’s one milestone that we know will come to pass, but what of the trickier premonitions? Covering a range of cultural categories, from food and film to royalty and radio, we handpick 13 predictions that we think will happen over the next 12 months. With a focus on both household names and up-and-coming trends, there’s no better place to look for your step-by-step guide to 2013.
