Sure, this weekend is supposed to be a celebration of Christ’s resurrection but quite frankly there’s now a bigger bash kicking off in town. Stealing Jesus’ thunder big time this Bank Holiday is Record Store Day, a day of festivities thrown in the name of independent music shops across the globe. Forget egg-hunting, bunny-petting and church-going this Saturday (Apr 19) and join some of the Record Store Day merrymaking that’s set to take place throughout the capital. Read the full post…

London Fields! Sunshine! Beer! You just know it’s going to be bonkers in Broadway Market over Easter with this combination, but isn’t that all part of the fun? Best of all, though, the Cat & Mutton gastropub has just reopened in time for the unseasonably warm spring weather. So you know the score: sun lotion, warm jacket for later – and plenty of cash for that cab home, because you’re not going to be using public transport after a few drinks at the Cat & Mutton. Guy Dimond

Johnny Depp

It was only last August – on the release of big-budget disaster ‘The Lone Ranger’ – that we at Time Out asked the question ‘Is it time for Johnny Depp to call it a day?’ Now his new film ‘Transcendence’ is arriving in cinemas (it opens on Friday April 25), and the question still lingers: does this once-mighty cinematic force have anything new to offer?

Cannes Film Festival 2014 line-up announced

Cannes announcement - Timothy Spall

The line-up for the Cannes Film Festival (May 14-25) was announced this morning – and it looks especially juicy for anyone who loves cinema in all its guises from all over the globe. Eighteen films will compete for the Palme d’Or, won last year by the brilliant ‘Blue is the Warmest Colour’. Of those, two are British – veterans Mike Leigh and Ken Loach return to the Croisette with ‘Mr Turner’ and ‘Jimmy’s Hall’. The first is a biopic looking at the end of the life of the nineteenth-century painter JMW Turner (that’s Timothy Spall playing him above). The second is a tragic but rousing tale of a communist outlawed in 1930s Ireland. Read the full post…
