All Points East

Tickets are still available for this lit new festival in Victoria Park, with LCD Soundsystem, Björk and The xx among the headliners.

‘Windrush: Portrait of a Generation’
icon-location-pin South Bank
‘Windrush: Portrait of a Generation’

This exhibition by photographer Jim Grover marks the seventieth anniversary of the arrival of Caribbean migrants on the Empire Windrush. It’s a celebration of the British African-Caribbean community and a portrait of the UK as it embraced an increasingly multiracial identity. 

Restaurant of the week: Roganic
icon-location-pin Marylebone
Restaurant of the week: Roganic

It’s pronounced ‘Ro-gan-ick’, in case you’re wondering, and it’s a permanent London spin-off of Simon Rogan’s two-Michelin-starred L’Enclume in the Lake District. This is an industrial-chic spot with uniformly excellent food and top-notch service.

MCM London Comic Con
icon-location-pin Custom House
MCM London Comic Con

With dealer stalls, special guests, manga, games and cosplay, this pop-culture convention should be on every fanboy/girl’s calendar.

‘Red’
icon-location-pin Covent Garden
‘Red’

Catch this intense drama about the great abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko. It’s finally bagged itself a West End transfer nine years after its run at the Donmar Warehouse – and it’s lost none of its power.

Show of the week: Juno Calypso: ‘What to do with a Million Years’
icon-location-pin Fitzrovia
Show of the week: Juno Calypso: ‘What to do with a Million Years’

English artist and photographer Juno Calypso found an enormous underground bunker in Las Vegas owned by an ‘immortalist’ cult. She used the pristine 1970s time capsule as the backdrop for her creepy, threatening photography. Here she riffs on beauty, fear and death. And it’s terrifying.

‘McKellen: Playing the Part’
Film ‘McKellen: Playing the Part’

Watch this charming, extended look back at Ian McKellen’s life in the company of the great actor himself. It’s a straight-talking reflection on the impact the world has had on McKellen, and he on it.

Jam on Rye
icon-location-pin Peckham Rye
Jam on Rye

Get a bellyful of burgers and basslines at this day dedicated to soundsystem culture and street food. Eat chicken from Only Jerkin’ while jumping around to a set from Reggae Roast.
