Time Run

Critics' choice

London's growing collection of escape games has gained a special edition in Time Run, an immersive, hands-on hour of problem solving and teamwork that will delight anybody who still demands to play board. The premise involves a scientist, Luna Fox, who has discovered time travel and realised too late what the rest of us already knew from 'Back to the Future' – that messing around with the past is risky business.

Urban Food Fest

A Shoreditch car park is transfored into a food-focused party for this weekly night market which features a revolving cast of traders. Dishes from all over the world are served from stalls and trucks; regular options include Venezuelan beef arepas (maize flour flatbreads), vegan hand-made pasta, Brazilian chorizo wraps, Belgina waffles and the ubiquitous (but undeniably delicious) pulled pork in a soft brioche bun.

The Candlelight Club

Critics' choice

A dazzling, clandestine pop-up cocktail bar with a 1920s speakeasy flavour in a secret den lit entirely by candles. Practice your swing dance moves to live jazz bands, sup period cocktails from a specialist menu and soak up further vintage grooves as DJs spin tunes late into the night. The location is secret and revealed only to ticket-holders two days before the event by email. You may well have to give a password to get in or even bribe the cops, but it'll be worth the dough once you're in.
