Weekend REVLry | 20th-22nd Nov
We’re slipping ever so closely to Friday, meaning the descent to the weekend is on. And if you’re still yet to put anything in the diary, get out that pencil and start scribbling a few of these ‘maybes’ in. We’re covering all grounds too; days out for kids, how to spend an afternoon with your parents or sacking it all off to binge-watch TV. Check out our pick of the best stuff to do this weekend.
Lates with mates
Gilles Peterson and dego & Kaidi go b2b with extended sets at Peckham’s Bussey Building this Friday. As you can expect, advance tickets have already sold out, but there will be plenty on the door, just make sure you get down early to avoid disappointment!
Friday 20th November, 10pm – 5am, Bussey Building, 133 Rye Lane, Peckham
Crafty Christmas with Mum
A celebration of London’s self-publishing artists and makers, D.I.Y. Art Market is the perfect place to while away an afternoon. Expect to find unique and one-off pieces including ceramics, prints, zines and magazines, jewellery and more, all with a festive touch.
D.I.Y. Market, Sunday, November 22, 2015, 11:00am – 6:00pm
Epic Dalston, 13-15 Stoke Newington Rd London, N16 8BH United Kingdom
Date night, sorted
One of London’s most intimate supper clubs, Aya Cafe in Peckham’s Holdron Arcarde are cooking up a feast for just 18 people this Friday and Saturday night. And for just £27 each, we’re puzzled as to why there are tickets left. Aya will be cooking her grandmother’s recipes to match the cosy setting. It’s BYOB too.
Kazakh Supper Club, Aya Cafe, Holdron Arcade
Friday is film night
If you want to escape the bustle of London’s festive street markets this weekend (there are a few opening this week including Winter Wonderland, Christmas Market at Tate Modern and South Pole Saloon in Brixton), a feel-good film is the best way to spend a chilled Friday night. Our pick is The Lady in the Van, a heartwarming and hilarious story about a lady who parked in the driveway of Alan Bennett’s home and lived there for 15 years!
Keep the kids busy
Comedy Club 4 Kids is back in Guilford this Saturday, with an hour of cracking entertainment. Suggested age for the event is 6+ but all are welcome to spend the afternoon. You’ll find some of the UK’s best stand-up comedians hosting and with family tickets priced at £31, it’s a fun day out that will keep the kids chuckling.
Saturday 21st November, 3pm, G Live, Guilford
