Eat and drink
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…)
This week our cultural smorgasbord is offering you a bit of alternative art, fascinating theatre, hip-hop jams, comedy and a journey to Notting Hill for gourmet popcorn.
Fresh off the back of last month’s London film fest comes a foreign film takeover this weekend, with exciting festival programmes from Korea, Russia and Africa expected to entertain and inspire the capital’s self-respecting cinephiles. Elsewhere, there’s a quirky fest dedicated to tea and coffee, a weekender exploring new technology and a new “rock n roll” ramen bar making its much anticipated debut, just in time for winter.
Hello, October – a month that always remind us it’s time to wrap up warm and vaguely consider what you might like for Christmas – but it’s also when the city crams in the last of the exciting events before the steady wind down toward December 25th.
London’s gone a bit festival-mad this weekend – something’s gotta replace The Games? But you’ll be pleased to know you can sidestep the mud and poor sanitation for quality music, arts and cinema that should make your next few days quite entertaining.
We’re a week in and London continues to revel in the excitement that the Olympics has brought to the capital – and it seems that while the games are still on, things to do in the London just keep on getting better.
Nothing like a four-day week to bring back the weekend round a little bit quicker, especially when there’s outdoor theatre, feasts on the street, a legendary Grandmaster and Russian indie docs to look forward to – and finally, the weather’s expected to be great.
