As culture curators, we always love a mixed-bag of a weekend – so that’s why we’ve got Japanese art, soul music and a Tarantino-inspired supperclub on the menu this week, with a few worthy escapades in-between…
If the Nollywood celebrations and Singaporean-style night market don’t get you out and about this wonderfully eclectic weekend, then we reckon the new Hip Hop’N’Bowl night, the return of the Experimental Food Society or a glimpse into a post-apocalyptic world might just do the trick…
EAT & DRINK: Experimental Food Society Spectacular Exhibition, Truman Brewery, Ely’s [...]
This weekend’s agenda features a 30s style jazz speakeasy in Peckham and an evening of entertainment at a Boys’ school in Shoreditch (featuring the kind of school dinners you wished they served back in the day, we kid you not). Plus, there’s contemporary art, a festival of ancient culture and hip-hop manga magic at the Barbican, thanks to the amazing dancers that make up Boy Blue Entertainment. With a weekend like this, we think it’s safe to say there’s rarely a dull moment in this city.
We’re starting with an art crawl, as we pass through the Bloomsbury Festival, travel to Brixton for a new show on the British Black Panthers then head west to check out street art duo PipSqueak and their impressive solo exhibition.
Say cheese! We’re getting our pretty mugs shot by French artist JR, eating copious amounts of cake, enjoying the beautiful photography of Dayanita Singh and downing a cocktail or two as we’re reminded that while winter might be blowing in, the fab ways to work the weekend aren’t going anywhere for now.
We’re on a theatre, food and film mission this weekend as we head to Deptford for the new Soweto Kinch show, check-in to the Tricycle for NT: Live’s Othello and squeeze in free gelato, a Dalston Sunday lunch, drive-in cinema and maybe a trip to a festival in Elephant & Castle (if we can catch our breath, that is…)
We wrap up one of the busiest cultural months of the year with flicks (Raindance), food (Street Food Europe) and festivities (Clapton and Harvest festivals) for this weekend’s fun and games.
It’s time for autumnal adventures in fine cuisine, stunning art and quirky exhibitions this weekend as we welcome a brand new show of work from famed fashion photographer Richard Avedon, enjoy plenty of Mexican delights in Hampstead and celebrate the musical legacy of Carnaby Street.
Ah, the beloved four-day weekend. Get ready to eat to your heart’s content at the Real Street Food Festival, ride a wave of photography nostalgia at the Truman Brewery, play with unusual instruments at the Barbican, get musically refreshed around Portobello, or join millions of revellers at the largest street party in Europe. You can sleep it off on Monday.
Like the weather, we’re in search of things a little “cooler” this weekend – but we haven’t had to look to far, thanks to a massive festival to mark the Olympics, the return of the Hyper Japan Festival, a “one-off” at the Design Museum, Sunday “apertivo” and a beach (in Camden, would you believe it?). Sand buckets at the ready!
