Three things you won't want to miss in London this Friday

The Pancakes and Booze Art Show

1. Like booze? Love pankcakes? You’re in luck: The Pancakes and Booze Art Show is happening tonight at Studio Spaces by Tobacco Dock, and it’s £7 entry. See contemporary art, body painting, and live music. Not to mention the all-you-can-eat pancakes. Try not to get battered.

2. Learn about the politics of hair at ‘Late at Tate Britain: Cut and Colour’, an event inspired by the gallery's collection, which includes five centuries of artists' depictions of eyebrows, beards and body hair. There will be a lively discussion on the topic curated by ‘Burt Roti’ magazine, a screening of new short film 'This Hair of Mine' and a performance from female DJ collective ‘Resis’Dance’. It’s all free, but it’s first come, first served.

3. Wear comfortable shoes for a trip to Frieze London art fair, where you’ll find the most glamorous galleries and artists in the world, all under one roof. Make time for the Frieze Projects programme, which features a pop-up herb garden by South African artist Donna Kukama for 2017. Find it at the south end of Regent’s Park. Be warned, it’s not cheap: a day ticket costs £35-£38.
