It's been a long time since Metronomy was just Joe Mount's bedroom pop project in sleepy Totnes, Devon. Three albums and a headline slot at the Royal Albert Hall later, and with a shiny, rounded live line-up – with drummer Anna Prior laying down the beats at the back – Metronomy perform songs from their new album 'Love Letters' at a free gig in London.

This Sunday will see the return of the weekly Village Green Market at Hackney Downs Studios. The market showcases the wares of local talent including a variety of creative designers, food stall traders, cocktail shakers. Green pastures come courtesy of Hackney Downs, the park the studios border. Activities and finds range from getting a pint of craft ale by The Signature Brew Boys and enjoying a roast served all afternoon at low-key cafe The Russet, to getting an indie wardrobe revamp or pimping up your bike at The Hackney Peddler fix-it-yourself workshops.
Italian graffiti artist Hunto will be creating his signature colourful creations live then holding a Q&A session followed by a DJ set and drinks at Shoreditch's Boxpark.
Book in advance by phone for these workshops at which children aged five to eleven can use the Museum of London’s iPads to create a 3D-card model, taking inspiration from London’s iconic skyline. Sessions run 12.30pm-1.15pm, 2pm-2.45pm and 3.30pm-4.15pm.
