‘Picturing Prince: Photographs by Steve Parke’

Get an intimate look into Prince’s life at this exhibition of rarely seen images. Photographer Steve Parke met the icon in the late ’80s at his private estate and recording studio Paisley Park. As Prince’s art director and official photographer, he snapped more than 500 photos of the purple one. This selection showcases impromptu shots and glimpses
of the artist’s life off stage. Proud Central. Tube: Charing Cross. Until Dec 3.

Uniqlo Tate Late

Inspired by the gallery’s upcoming ‘Red Star Over Russia’ exhibition, this Tate Late explores all things Russian with talks, film screenings, DJ sets and cabaret. You can even work up a sweat with a spot of ‘fiskultura’ -–- a popular Soviet mass-exercise movement. Tate Modern. Tube: Southwark. Fri Nov 24.

Free blow-dry at Duck & Dry

Just booked a holiday? You’ve got even more reason to feel smug as Koko Kanu has partnered with Duck & Dry to offer free styling sessions for anyone jetting off between November 23 and January 31.
