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.


Cabbages & Frocks Dog Day Afternoon

Think your dog’s looking a bit ruff? Bring your pooch along to this special Cabbages and Frocks market day starring doggy accessories, treats, training and puppy portraits. If your pup is already looking sharp, enter him into one of a variety of competitions starting from 2pm. There's Best Dog Trick, New Kid on the Block (best puppy), Matching Pairs, Waggy Tail, Best in Show, Miniatures and Toy Breeds. Those on two legs will also find plenty to enjoy, including food, fashion and vintage stalls. The Good Boy Dog School will present their 'Britain's Got Talent' dog display at 2pm.

The Vogue Festival 2015

The Vogue Festival is back for a weekend of beautification, professional-grade selfies and designer meet-and-greets; and as ever, it’s a must for anyone with an interest in the business of fashion and dressing fabulously. Your £25 foyer ticket buys you a pass to free Topshop manicures, one-to-one advice sessions with the magazine’s own top fashion editors, makeovers from industry bigwigs and endless outfit-admiration opportunities. If you’re serious about your style, you can also buy tickets to see some world-class names talk about their own journey to the top.

Feast of St George

The Mayor of London's throwing a party in honour of England's own doughty knight, St George. This Trafalgar Square takeover takes place two days after his official feast day, but will involve more than enough traditional fun to make up for it. St George's Day started out in the thirteenth century as a national day of feasting, so look out for the live demos from leading London chefs as well as an English farmer's market and banqueting area. Family games, brass bands, a medieval jousting tiltyard and plenty more silliness will keep you entertained once you've feasted fit to burst.

Straight Nasty

Abandon every notion of cool, descend to the Vogue Fabrics basement and party to the pop anthems you lived for when you were a tween: everything from Destiny's Child to the Spice Girls to Peter Andre. (When's he getting a knighthood, anyway?)

Critics' choice

Do you like Morrissey? What about traditional Mexican music? If the answer to both is a big old ‘¡Sí, señor!’ then you're in luck tonight. At this concert as part of La Linea festival, a band of Mexican musicians (led by Camilo Lara and Sergio Mendoza) will be reinterpreting the Pope of Mope's songs – and translating his sacred lyrics into Spanish, of course. We can’t wait to hear ‘Este Hombre Encantador’.
