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

This Is a Voice

Though thankfully not ‘The Voice’. Instead of admiring warblers from Wolverhampton, this exhibition examines the weird and wonderful sounds we make with the human voice. Live performances, scientific demonstrations and visuals works chart an ‘acoustic journey’ from the voice’s beginnings in the body and the mind to its incredible variety of external expression. Wellcome Collection. Fri Apr 15-Jul 31. Tube: Euston.

Sound Connections 

Your delayed train at St Pancras is no longer the stuff of nightmares as up-and-coming artists including  The Milk and Garance And The Mitochondries take to the station concourse to entertain travellers. Sound! St Pancras International. Thu Apr 14-Fri Apr 15.

Superheroes Superhighway Ride

Cyclists have always had a healthy appreciation of lycra but now they’re going a step further with full-on superhero garb. Don your cape and join iBikeLondon for an afternoon of cycling with their squad of disco bikes. Below Waterloo Bridge. Sat Apr 16, 12.30pm. Tube: Waterloo. 

Cured Meat and Craft Beer Pairing

Borough Market meat experts Cannon & Cannon bring their stellar sausages and great hunks of cured meat to King’s Cross where they’ll be pairing them with craft beers from Oldershaw Brewery. It’s a match made in foodie heaven. MI + ME restaurant. Tue Apr 12, 6pm. Tube: King’s Cross.

Magical Surfaces: The Uncanny in Contemporary Photography

This show of  striking photos lifts the lid on Freud’s concept of das unheimliche (‘the uncanny’, or psychologically disturbing) and how it manifests itself in photography. Parasol Unit. Tue Apr 12-Jun 12. Hoxton Overground.
