  • Colourscape Music Festival

    Colourscape is celebrating its 25th birthday at 2014's event on Clapham Common, which makes this year an even more special chance to visit its colourful tunnels in what must be the closest thing to being swallowed by a scene from 'Yellow Submarine'. Guests must choose a coloured cape before venturing into the enormous labyrinth to explore nearly an acre of space while daylight casts a rainbow glow through its walls.

    Clapham Common, until Sep 21

    Gigantic, face-melting slabs of electronic noise in Hackney, as Throbbing Gristle/Factory Floor supertrio CTV bring their awe-inspiring 'Transverse' album to life at Oslo across two nights.

    Oslo, Until Sep 16

  • London Design Festival: 10 Years of Colour

    This sculptural installation for the London Design Festival is from Giles Miller, who's an expert in experimenting with surfaces, light and shadow. The work represents changes in the use of colours over the last decade, with thousands of tabs in a latticed frame, angled to reveal their hue in a unique way.

    Shoreditch High Street Station, until Sep 20

  • Magnus Betner

    Swedish comedy superstar Magnus Betnér (he's a household name in his homecountry) makes a rare stop over in London, offering us a chance to catch his hard-hitting, dark and rather uninhibited stand-up. Betnér doesn't shy away from challenging subjects, but always offers smart, thought-provoking angles. He's definitely worth catching.

    Leicester Square Theatre, Until Sep 17

The film Philomena, 10 points. The freezing conditions at Cineworld, Piccadily, where a small sign telling us they were sorry to say they were having some problems with the heating was not accurate, there was in fact no heating in screen 1..nil points and minus temp! Shivering whilst you watch.....never good.....
