Something For The Weekend in London: March 1-3

Matilda Egere-Cooper

weekend blog playfull 300x225 Something For The Weekend in London: March 1 3I’m pleased as punch March is upon us as Spring should hopefully be around the corner – so toasting to the new month with an array of cultural specials, featuring an Oscar winner, adventurous theatre, horse meat (!) and a certain rapping superstar (they don’t call us eclectic for nothing). Bottoms up!


MUSIC: Kanye West at Hammersmith Apollo,  45 Queen Caroline Street London W6 9QH

How much: £65 to £67.50

We Say: Off the back of last week’s impromptu gigs, Mr West is throwing another one this Friday – which, if you don’t mind the ticket price, should be incredible. Let’s just hope he doesn’t go off on one again as his rants are pure Marmite (and we loath Marmite!).


EAT & DRINK: Friday Night Socials at the National Café: Oliver Peyton, The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N

How much:

We say: Oliver Peyton (the man behind those uber-classy Peyton and Byrne restaurants and cafés) is educating foodies this Friday by preparing a mouth-watering menu featuring horsemeat  to dispel any myths floating about its quality. Genius? Too soon? We’re intrigued to say the least!



ART & CULTURE: Barbican Weekender: Brain Waves, Barbican Centre Silk Street London EC2Y 8DS

How much: FREE

We say: Enjoy a host  of fun, creative and “brainy” events this weekend as art meets neuroscience in East London.  Should be mind-blowing!


ART & CULTURE: Feast at Young Vic,  66 The Cut Waterloo London SE1 8LZ (last chance!)

We say: This cultural “feast” of a show has been such a hit, it’s had a much deserved extended run; but now’s your last chance to see it as it wraps up on Saturday – not to be missed!



CINEMA: Silver Lining Playbook, Prince Charles Cinema, 6 Leicester St  London Chinatown, London WC2H 7BX

How much: £10

We say: It was out last November, but now that it’s an Oscar winner, the quirky rom-com is back in selected cinemas (and should be in the diary this weekend – it’s a really good flick!)


ALTERNATIVE: Sprint – A Playful Documentary Unit on West Euston and Camden (presented by Coney), Camden People’s Theatre, 58-60 Hampstead Road, London, NW1 2PY

How much: £5

We say: The innovative Coney theatre company are special guests at CPT’s Sprint Festival this weekend, presenting an interactive event with performances, conversations and apparently, a bit of outdoor play.  If you’re as curious as us, e-mail or simply turn up on the Sunday.
