Things to do in London
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!)
We’ve got a pretty broad spectrum of arty events for your delight this weekend, from the glossy Sundance festival at the O2 to an indie food & flicks night around the east side and an ingenious exhibition popping up in Camden
Graphic arts, pre-Cinco de Mayo and a ping pong party to top all ping pong parties is just some of the awesomeness taking place this weekend
Now that we’re into the start of the festival season, choosing what to do on the weekend should be a breeze – so make some space in your calendar for La Linea 13, Udderbelly and the Warp Films at 10 season over the next few weeks, while one-offs like the Dante Fried Chicken brunch and the Gaia’s Show of Hands are two destinations this weekend that simply can’t be missed.
We might have overdosed on the chocolate last weekend (and unfortunately the weather’s still feeling like Narnia), but from burger marathons to reviving Sonic the Hedgehog, at least there’s the good times – so we can’t wait to get into the curious and cultural delights this weekend in London has to offer.
This pre-Easter weekend sees the capital marking the celebrations early with themed festivals and markets, while the launch of a new diner in Farringdon, a flick about Snoop Lion and an infamous party in Shoreditch are also worthy happenings on our radar.
This weekend we’ve rounded up a pair of festivals, a homage to H2O, a photography workshop and a hip creperie in Shoreditch that could be the one for your Friday night. Plus, we’ve discovered a French trend sweeping into town for all you cool-hunting foodies out there – frunch anyone?
Underground hip-hop, Asian indie flicks and good eats galore are just some of the fun times these next few days have in store, while you can also celebrate women (and your mamas!) thanks to the awesome International Women’s Day (Friday) and Mothering Sunday. No guesses as to what will be the soundtrack to our weekend, then…
I’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).
How should you spend the last weekend of February in the capital? How about hitting up Lunchtime Disco at its new locale, learning loads about Bangladeshi culture at the Bargehouse, indulging in another fried chicken pop-up and maybe heading to Covent Garden to discover why nostalgic poster art simply rocks.
