This post is about a weekend in the past.
Can you feel the autumn yet? The ever-lessening amount of daylight? The pervasive lukewarm drizzle? Exciting, isn’t it? Also, it’s Friday, so here’s what’s on, you rapscallions. (Thanks to Will Halling for the photo.)
Forage for vintage items while live bands play at the after-work Music and Antiques Night Market, Bermondsey
Dance to ‘rare, funky dancefloor gems’ from Munich duo Permanent Vacation, at Dance Tunnel, Dalston
Or there’s Simian Mobile Disco DJing in Islington or an extra-crafty For The Love Of Mic at Drink, Shop & Dance.
Grab some goodies at Hackney Flea Market
There’s loads of London Fashion Week events on all weekend
See the Mass Observation: This Is Your Photo exhibition at the Photographers’ Gallery (or one of these other great art shows)
See ships perform an opera on the Thames (really!)
The London Design Festival kicks off (on until Sep 22)
There’s a 2pm – 4am Mixmag Live party at Village Underground
Or if that’s much to much, get your indie disco on at Scared to Dance in Dalston
Comedy for a Cure presents stand-up from Jarred Christmas, Rob Deering, Mick Ferry and Paul Tonkinson, all for charity (Parkinsons UK).
It’s Primrose Hill Vintage Fashion Fair in, er, Primrose Hill
See a whole lot of choirs sing for free at The Scoop, More London
The Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival begins (and continues ’til Sep 22)
Hallelujah! Leonard Cohen is playing the O2
There’s a gay barn dance with a ‘meat raffle’ (not a euphemism)
HAVE FUN OUT THERE!
