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

Late at Tate Britain: Recall

This month’s Late has been themed around a beachscape painting by Winifred Nicholson. But no, it’s not an excuse for yet another pop-up urban beach. Instead, designer-makers ELK and composers Cassini Sound have created a ‘hypnotic audiovisual installation’ based on data taken from the surface of the moon. Curious? Us too. Tate Britain. Pimlico. Fri Jun 3.

London Nocturne

Now in its tenth year, this cycling race sees pros and amateurs alike pedalling through the streets of the Square Mile. You can buy tickets for the seated area, but a roadside spot will be free. Or better still, get out that Lycra and apply to take part! Cheapside. Bank. Sat Jun 4.

Novelty Automation Late

Tim Hunkin’s brilliantly bizarre collection of arcade games and other coin-operated contraptions is now open until 10pm on the first Thursday of every month – with a bar serving drinks all evening. Novelty Automation. Holborn. Thu Jun 2.

Cockpit Arts Open Studio

A chance to see what dozens of artists, designers, sculptors, ceramicists, weavers, shoemakers and jewellers get up to behind closed doors. (FYI, south Londoners: on the next weekend, their Deptford studios will be open.) Cockpit Arts Holborn. Holborn. Thu Jun 2-Mon Jun 6.

For the Record: '60s Pop Through the Lens

This exhibition looks at the work of photographer Stanley Bielecki, who shot the likes of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones for music mags in the 1960s, capturing a whole decade of cool. 5 Addison Avenue. Holland Park. Fri Jun 3-Jun 8.

Taiji in Regent's Park

Taiji, tai chi... whatever you want to call it, a month of free weekly classes kicks off this Saturday, courtesy of London South Bank University’s Confucius Institute. All you need to do is register in advance to nab your place in the park. Regent's Park. Regent's Park. Sat Jun 4.
