By Time Out London Things To Do

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

Wellcome Collection presents Field Adventures

Calling all Attenborough wannabes: field scientists are telling tales of discovery at the Grant Museum throughout spring. The talks are a collaboration with the Wellcome Collection's Making Nature exhibition. Future sessions are about crocodiles, butterflies and frogs. This week though, it’s a ‘Lord of the Flies’ vibe as the Natural History Museum’s collections manager for flies, fleas, arachnida and myri runs the show. Itchy? Grant Museum of Zoology. Tube: Warren St. Wed Mar 22, 1.30pm-2.30pm. 

Dance Therapy at Touch Sensitive

Create a video ‘dance portrait’ of yourself at this workshop run by artist Lotte Andersen. It’s part of the Touch Sensitive festival, a series of art events exploring representations of female bodies. Book in advance. Guest Projects. London Fields rail. Fri Mar 24, 6pm-9pm.

Women in Neon

Expect to see department store Fenwick of Bond Street in full bloom for the next six weeks. Lights of Soho have curated an exhibition there, showcasing the illuminating work of five female neon artists. Sounds like a bright idea. Fenwick of Bond Street, Floor 3. Tube: Bond St. Until May 1.
