Venturing Beyond: Graffiti and the Everyday Utopias of the Street

Somerset House will be bringing art from the street and into its galleries in this new, game-changing exhibition. Opening today, it features work by 17 graffiti artists including the neon, geometric designs of LA’s Revok. From Thursday Mar 3 to May 2.  Somerset House.

Sun Cinema

A new ‘sun-filled’ pop-up cinema has been installed in the basement of Lush. We’re not too sure what that means exactly – but regardless, they have a variety of sunny films lined up including ‘500 Days of Summer’, ‘Almost Famous’ and ‘Wild’. Free popcorn too. Hurrah! Until Mar 23. Downstairs at Lush, Oxford St.

States of Mind: Tracing the Edges of Consciousness

Enlisting the help of artists, philosophers and neuroscientists, this new show unpicks the idea of consciousness through installations that explore synaesthesia and somnambulism. And on that nocturnal note, it’s open till 10pm on Thursdays. Until Oct 16 Wellcome Collection.

Angel Comedy

This excellent comedy club runs seven days a week – and all for nowt but a voluntary donation.  Mondays are improv, Tuesdays feature an hour-long solo show, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays include spots from new acts testing new material. On Fridays and Saturdays, comics perform their slickest sets: all killer, no filler. Household names like Richard Herring and Adam Buxton have paid a visit in the past. Camden Head.

Online retailer SA Wines will be opening the doors of its South Wimbledon warehouse for a one-day tasting session. Not only will there be 30 varieties of vino to sip your way through, you’ll also be able to enjoy a 5 percent discount across the company’s range. Sat Mar 5. Unit 14-15 Windsor Park, SW19 2TJ.
