Saturday: a day of the week so uniquely brilliant that Elton John, Nick Drake and, uh, Whigfield all wrote songs about it. Whether you plan to spend yours dancing, drinking, shopping or broadening your cultural horizons, we've got you covered with our pick of the day's best events.

Netil Market

While Broadway Market is clogged with whippet-walkers, busking indie bands and buggies, Netil Market (just a gourmet loaf's throw away) is an altogether more sedate affair. The small collection of stalls (usually about 15) offer a microcosm of Broadway Market with espresso coffee, gourmet baked goods, bric-a-brac, crafts and even a rotisserie. Based in the playground of London Fields School, it’s the brainchild of a local creative community based nearby at Netil House which has focused on giving space to local designers.

John Mayall

  • Critics choice

The godfather of British blues is now 80 years old, but his hard-rockin' blues and boogie are as tough and dirty as ever. In a career spanning seven decades, Mayall has released almost as many albums, and gave Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green and John McVie and the Stones' Mick Taylor their first breaks. He's a genuine living legend – see him while he's still around.

  1. Cadogan Hall 5 Sloane Terrace, SW1X 9DQ

Fairground

What's better than soaking up loads of great music and art from some prime London talents? Doing it while scoffing delicious grub, of course. Organised by the team behind foodie night market Street Feast, Fairground will be taking over three floors of a disused Haggerston office block for ten consecutive weekends, with each level of the building offering a different kind of fun.

  1. 260-264 Kingsland Road 260-264 Kingsland Road, Haggerston, E8 4DG
