The Late Ones
For the ultimate East meets West (which we love) Hackney Wick and Fish Island take over the V&A this Friday 28th. As the V&A continue to celebrate London’s most creative spaces expect live performances, debates, origami and mini cinemas on DIY canals to name a few.
For the super cultured (or those who like the idea of wandering round someone’s cabinet of Curiosity) the Sir John Soane Museum hosts its monthly late on March 4th. Experience the townhouse rammed with architecture, sculptures and paintings by candlelight! The event gets pretty popular so get there early and bring a good book…
For the digital kids… (which is all of us)
This month’s Barbican Weekender explores digital media in all its forms. You can either throw yourself physically into the Twittersphere (if you want to be live-aired…) by playing dress up in muscle-sensors, being mimicked by a hologram or you can just go and view their digitally appealing series of events and entertainments. It is after all, an exhibition on expression (though it will be live aired on March 8th… so don’t do that dance move. Save that for your cousin’s wedding.)
For those of us who Instagram culinary achievements
Martin Parr fans and the foodies behind The Art of Dining have created “Say Cheese” in Hackney for your entertainment. A Martin Parr bar and restaurant where the food is directly taken from his work and the drinks are equally not as they may seem… Tickets to the Bar are only a tenner and include a Martin Parr cocktail and entrance to the whole gingham-y show.
Night at the Movies
We are always searching for cheap cinema events. They never get old and often the free and cheap ones are much more fun than the mass crowds and sticky carpets at the larger ones. Because I know you still love it (don’t lie), Clueless, that cult-y summary of 90s knee high socks and perfect hair, and how a lot of us learned to interact with our fellow students (just me?) is showing at JW3. Presented by the super cool Charlie Lyne (see there’s even a talk about it – I’ve got tingles!)
And Finally – some wonderfully epic good cause fun!
The Fine Line Project, a ‘creative arts initiative raising awareness for mental health charities’ comes to Proud on March 2nd. Their list of acts is truly epic and is a really great way to support a brilliant cause, and who doesn’t want to spend their Sunday making a difference at an awesome event?!
