Kidzania

Already a success in nearly two dozen other countries around the world, Kidzania is a huge kids-only attraction which allows visitors to take on real-life role play activities and career paths which just happen to teach them important life skills along the way. Kids receive some Kidzania currency on the way in (and can earn more by working) which they may spend on fun rewards whenever they like – they can save up for a return visit or splurge immediately.

The Jesus And Mary Chain

Critics' choice

The founding fathers of fuzz-pop return to the London stage to play a special show as part of Mogwai’s twentieth anniversary series at the Roundhouse. Grumpily black-clad and led as ever by the taciturn Reid brothers, the Mary Chain will be going back to their roots for a full performance of their 1985 debut album ‘Psychocandy’, as they did for two London shows late last year. When the band first played these songs live in London, their set lasted 20 minutes and famously sparked a riot at North London Polytechnic. These new sets should last a little longer and be a bit less violent, but hopefully the volume will be set as high as ever.

Magic Mike XXL

Director Steven Soderbergh and Matthew McConnaghey are both absent from this sequel. But who cares when Tatum is back with his Oscar-worthy dry hump? And let’s not forget the original idea was his, based on eight months he spent aged 18 working as a stripper. This time around Mike and his boys take a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention. If it’s as fun and throwaway as the first film we’ll be happy.

Hyde Bark

Dogs are clearly the main event at this fundraiser for The Mayhew Animal Home. There are pet portraits, an agility course, a Temptation Alley full of tasty treats and a dog show with celebrity judges, which you can enter your furry darling in on the day for £4 per class. A sponsored dog walk (£10 entry - register in advance) will head off around the Serpentine, while less energetic owners can watch vet demonstrations and seek pet behaviour advice at this free event in The Cockpit, Hyde Park.

Turntables

Critics' choice

This deliciously fun – and just plain delicious – pop-up seriously impressed us last year, so we're chuffed to hear that it's back in town. As before, it's set on and around the considerable terrace space of Hackney Wick canalside venue Shapes and once again, there'll be all kinds of delicious street food on offer (from some of London's top vendors, including Bill Or Beak, The Cheese Truck, White Men Can't Jerk, Popdogs and Zoe's Ghana Kitchen), plus summertime cocktails from Butlers Gin and Quiquiriqu Mezcal, and specially brewed Turntables lager.

PS my favorite Sunday haunt is Church Street in Stoke Newington - Turkish coffee, fresh juices, mediterranean breakfasts and vintage clothes. Also an old school DVD rental shop with the discs arranged by director, not 'category', for that afternoon veg out.
