If your week has been anything like mine, then I can imagine that you’re all literally foaming at the mouth with excitement at what your weekend has in store for you.
This week we’ve brought you films, music, and an event which slowly but surely is bringing London a little more together week-by-week.
AT THE HEADLINES! What do you do on your Sundays? Most have a fry up, and catch up on their weekly dose of the news with the Sunday papers; why not make this a part of your social life with, Sunday Papers Live. You can watch astronomers, politicians, actors, and the sorts performing sections from the newspapers live. You can cosy up, have a communal Sunday roast, and even bring your little four-legged friend along for a little walk in the park. What a brilliant way to reinvent a day that has long been lost in the monotony of life. To mix things up, check out the full line up here.
So, I consider myself pretty well informed within the music area, however this festival totally bypassed my ears. It’s not only in a cracking setting, but it’s also hosting some pretty incredible artists. On Blackheath, is being held this coming weekend, at none other than Blackheath. Over both the Saturday and Sunday you can find your ears being graced by, well, Grace Jones as well as Massive Attack (I’m over the moon about this one), that’s only the tip of the iceberg. They haven’t just stopped at incredible music, oh no, they’ve also got you all salivating at the thought of; food tents, farmers markets, and even The Neff Food Stage. A whole stage for food? That’s odd! Nope…this stage will provide an interactive experience with several chefs a day (some even Michelin star winners) providing demonstrations. To find out more, click here.
Come on, harder, faster…
Cycling that is…what were you all thinking?! I’ve brought you guys another free cinema event, but this time with a twist. I’ve given you all a hand in searching out the best things to be doing this weekend, the least you could do is give us a leg, or two, to help generate enough electricity through cycle power. Why? To power up a cinema, of course. To celebrate the reopening of Nunhead Green, Peckham & Nunhead Free Film Festival brings you the French animated Film; Belleville Rendez-vous, or as some of you may know it as, The Triplets of Belleville. Rat Race Cycles and Electric Pedals have partnered up with this event to allow you guys to hop on a bike, or bring your own along, to enjoy your evening with a bit of a twist. Didn’t get time to hit up the gym this week? That’s okay, we’ve got you covered. To find out more information, check it out here.
