Things to do in London this Saturday

Enjoy the best day (and night) of the week with our guide to Saturday fun in London

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.


Wasted Chic Spring Pop-Up

Somewhere between a sample sale and a party, Wasted Chic puts the fun back in shopping whilst helping young designers showcase their wares. Popping up at Shoreditch bar and restaurant McQueen will be 30 independent designers, selling clothing, jewellery and accessories. Thanks to an £100 cap, the prices aren’t eye-watering, either. Brands on board include Bundy & Webster, Dazzle & Jolt and Sstutter Jewellery.

Critics' choice

UK garage-house duo Dusky, who can nail anything from sprawling, melodic club cuts to deep and dirty house anthems, play a special eight-hour set. Prepare for an eclectic dancefloor journey, taking in everything from sweatbox rave to classic Chicago house to dubbed-out techno, and plenty of bassy bangers.

Feeling Gloomy

Critics' choice

Eternal pessimists – and proud of it – the Feeling Gloomy crew spin a regular soundtrack of gloom-tinted (but still hugely enjoyable) pop. Think Blondie to Bowie, Abba to The Clash, The Smiths to the Scissor Sisters, Bonnie Tyler to Joy Division. Get ready to do some whistful sighing and then jump on the dancefloor when you realise no-one's watching you anyway.

The Rhythm Parlour

Critics' choice

Get your beard trimmed while you soak up some disco bliss at monthly pop-up musical barber shop The Rhythm Parlour, set in Rye Wax Records in Peckham's Bussey Building. Turn up, put your name on the list for a haircut or beard/tache trim, sift through Rye Wax's ace selection of records, grab a cocktail, munch some Vietnamese street food and listen to resident DJs spin disco, house and funk while you wait for Ryan MacGregor to trim your fuzz in the barber's chair. The funkiest follicle-trimming in London.
