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

Lorna Jane Active Nation Day

Prepare to get sweaty at this all-day fitness festival at Ministry of Sound. Get moving at a cardio class under the club’s disco ball or pump iron in the seriously slick fitness studio. Once you’ve fully exhausted yourself, refuel with dairy-free treats and energy balls. Start limbering up now and reserve your spot online. Ministry of Sound. Tube: Elephant & Castle. Sun Sep 24, 11.30am-5.30pm.

Streatham Free Film Festival

Sack off the pricey multiplex and watch free films all over Streatham. Catch an outdoor screening (weather permitting) of ‘Grease’ or get cosy at The Railway pub and watch the Oscar-winning movie ‘Moonlight’. Various Streatham locations. Until Sep 30.

Free pizza at Radici

Italian joint Radici will be making Monday more bearable by giving away 50 free pizzas. It’s first come, first served, so get down there early and combat the colder weather with some much-needed carb-loading. 30 Almeida St. Tube: Highbury & Islington. Mon Sep 25, 5pm-10.30pm.

Museum of Ordinary Animals

See a ‘wall of mice’ made up of 4,000 hand-collected from islands across the world, and explore the evolution of the animals that so often end up on our plates. Warning: you’ll never look at a chicken the same way again. Grant Museum of Zoology. Tube: Warren St. Until Dec 22.

Nasty Women UK Art Exhibition

As part of a global movement to empower female artists, Nasty Women UK is hosting a two-day show. As well as sculptures, installations and a VR experience, there’ll be Donald Trump’s head made out of cake. Stour Space. Hackney Wick Overground. Sat Sep 23-Sun Sep 24.

Harvest Festival

Before you go into hibernation, have some alfresco fun at Myatt’s Fields Park’s community festival. Watch a cooking demonstration, learn about beekeeping or make like Mary Berry and whip up a harvest-themed cake for the festival bake-off. Myatt’s Fields Park. Tube: Oval. Sun Sep 24.
