Put your money away! Here are the week’s best free events.

Performance

Matthew Herbert's Edible Sound

Yes, those are tortillas shaped like records. And yes, you can play (and eat) them. As part of a King’s College project exploring the ethics of food production, experimental musician Herbert has recorded the sound of ingredients (don’t ask us how) and had them etched on to edible ‘records’. Hear them in this one-off performance. The Guy's Chapel. London Bridge. Wed Mar 16, 7.30pm. Booking essential.

Ritual

The Druid Order Spring Equinox Ceremony

Watch a Druid ceremony to acknowledge the time of equal day and night and welcome Ceridwen, the Earth Mother, carrying the seeds for this year’s activity and growth. All followed by a talk, meditation and call for peace. Tower Hill Terrace. Tower Hill. Sun Mar 20, noon.

Talk

The Age of Anxiety

This event at the Wellcome Collection will lift the lid on anxiety disorders with experts discussing parenting, the body, habits, fear and treatment. There are also workshops about managing the symptoms of anxiety. Let’s just hope there’s enough space for most of London to attend. Wellcome Collection. Euston Square. Fri Mar 18, 4pm. Book tickets.
