Event of the Week: The Great Exhibition Road Festival
icon-location-pin London

Restaurant of the Week: Peg
icon-location-pin Hackney
Restaurant of the Week: Peg

A neighbourhood restaurant in Hackney doing modern izakaya-style cooking, from the team behind Bright. Records in the corner. Service with a smile. And drinking food to die for. Their chook hearts are deliciously tender pink-middled bites with just a hint of charring. 

Soho Fête and Waiters’ Race
icon-location-pin Soho
Soho Fête and Waiters’ Race

This legendary knees-up is back for the 45th year. Head along to bet on the snail race, enter the spaghetti-eating competition, see women-led morris dancing and the famous Waiters’ Race. Join in for some silly summer fun.

Hackney Vegan Village
icon-location-pin Hackney

Chow down on tasty plant-based grub from more than 50 of London’s top vegan traders, who set up their trestle tables in this former tram shed. It's time to veg out like never before.

icon-location-pin Hyde Park
Show of the Week: ‘Serpentine Pavilion 2019’

This year’s Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Junya Ishigami, is a cool, calming haven bang in the middle of Hyde Park. Made from 61 tonnes of slate and 106 steel columns, Ishigami’s creation is a massive sweeping roof and definitely worth a look.

Mudchute Agricultural Show
icon-location-pin Isle of Dogs

Looking for an original evening out? Try sailing down the Thames in a floating cinema with Time Out’s very own Movies on the River. Up this week we have ‘Grease’ screening Tuesday, ‘Pretty Woman’ on Wednesday, ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ on Thursday and brilliant baroque romp ‘The Favourite’ this Friday. Take your pick!

Film Film of the Week: Apollo 11

A documentary about the historic 1969 moon mission. It’s a gripping story behind that ‘giant leap for mankind’ complete with killer visual elements. 

Yesterday
Film Yesterday

A romcom set in a world in which The Beatles never existed. It’s a playful celebration of some of the best songs ever recorded. Newcomer Himesh Patel’s thunderous rooftop rendition of ‘Help!’ is a real highlight.

Show of the Week: ‘Strange Fruit’
icon-location-pin Shepherd’s Bush
Show of the Week: ‘Strange Fruit’
