Things to do in London
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 [...]
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.
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!
The heat is on in more ways than one this weekend – French and Mexican festivities will guarantee your cultural fix, while cross-continental urban art, an event for sporting chaps and a new alfresco restaurant in the city ensures the next three days will be as brilliant as they can be.
Can the weekend get here already? We’re itching to check out the food, glorious food at the latest installation of the Feast festival – while further foodie delights come courtesy of Somerset’s massive new elBulli show and a newly-refurb’d Italian fish boutique which looks as beautiful as its cuisine… tuck in!
If a quadruple-bill of film, music, community and theatre festivals around the city doesn’t woo you this weekend, a Latino pop-up and unusual garden experience – that promises you the quirkiest indoor picnic you could ever imagine – might just do the trick.
London, you are looking kind of glorious right now! So for the weekend we’re keen to head outdoors at the London Zoo Lates which has returned for 2013, enjoy cocktails and tacos at the new Casa Negra in Shoreditch and wind down at a double-bill of Daft Punk movies which I’m sure will move our feet and blow our minds.
We love London for its multiculturalism, so we’re all about that cross-cultural life this weekend by way of a Ghanaian pop-up in Islington, an Indian Arrival celebration at the V&A, an exhibition of stunning African portraits and a global selection of indie flicks at a three-day fest at the Roxy. No passport required.
It’s the return of the three-day weekend which means the chance to get up to everything 72 hours just can’t handle – so we’ve penciled in Breakin’ Convention, a street fest in East, Roof top cinema and the long awaited re-opening of the Serpentine Lido (because this weekend’s gonna be a scorcher!)
