The best things to do this week

Film of the week: ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’
Film Film of the week: ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’

Quentin Tarantino’s riotous alt-history of ’60s Hollywood is a glorious love letter to the movies. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt deliver killer lead performances in what is a stellar film from the cult director.

Restaurant of the week: Casa Fofò
icon-location-pin Hackney
Restaurant of the week: Casa Fofò

At just £39, the tasting menu at this Hackney eatery won’t leave you surviving on beans on toast for the rest of the month. Ex-Pidgin head chef Adolfo de Cecco has crafted an ambitious and surprising seven-course serving where even the extras (bread, petits fours) linger in the memory. And all in a single, relaxed room that turns the stuffy image of fine dining on its head.  

Chihuly Nights
icon-location-pin Kew
Chihuly Nights

Dale Chihuly’s stunning glass sculptures have been exploding out of Kew Gardens’ glorious foliage since April. See them lit up after dark at these special lates and listen out for a soundtrack played by live musicians – including the UK’s only glass harmonica player.

Beyond Retro Garage Sale
Things to do Beyond Retro Garage Sale

Get ready to rummage! The vintage institution is bringing 20,000 items of retro garb to Peckham for this humongous sale. And with all items priced at £15 or less, you can get a whole new (old) outfit for less than you think.

Show of the week: ‘Evita’
icon-location-pin Regent’s Park
Show of the week: ‘Evita’

Forget everything you know about ‘Evita’: this one properly rocks. A swaggering reboot of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic, Jamie Lloyd’s production is a pumping adaptation edged with dirt, rust and grime.  

The Spitalfields Journey
icon-location-pin Spitalfields
The Spitalfields Journey

Get a behind-the-scenes look at some amazing spots on this annual jaunt around East End venues. This year, Britain’s oldest synagogue, Bevis Marks and Huguenot silk-weaver hangout Dennis Severs’ House will be opening their doors for a series of tours where the clocks are turned back to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century London. Booking required.

Bar of the week: Roof Garden St Pancras
icon-location-pin St Pancras
Bar of the week: Roof Garden St Pancras

‘Under the radar’ and ‘rooftop bar’ are two phrases not usually seen next to each other, but the Renaissance Hotel’s open-air spot is just that. Escape the hustle and bustle of Euston Road this summer and discover gin-tinged peace in the middle of King’s Cross.

Show of the week: Elizabeth Prentis ‘I Don’t Like Broccoli (but I’ll Try Anything Once)’
icon-location-pin Dalston
Show of the week: Elizabeth Prentis ‘I Don’t Like Broccoli (but I’ll Try Anything Once)’

The world around us is a terrifying shambles of politics, war and social media mundanity – and maybe Elizabeth Prentis’s revolting, light-hearted, kinky art is the perfect antidote. It’s super-sexual, gross, sticky and very good.  

South London Chicken & Rum Festival
Things to do South London Chicken & Rum Festival

Expect an afternoon of cluckin’ good fun at this chicken and rum fest in Brixton. Tickets include free chicken wings and rum punch, while there’ll also be DJs and games. Sounds finger-lickin’ good.
