1. It’s the first day of The London Feminist Film Festival, which has paired up with the BFI to bring a bunch of screenings to the capital calling bullshit on movie machismo. Head to Dalston’s Rio Cinema at 6pm to see ‘Talk Back Out Loud’ – a doc challenging the stigmatization of HIV-positive women. Tickets start at £11.50.
2. Ice-cream aficionados Four Winters have teamed up with sugar specialists Meringue Girls to create the 'Mermaid Mashup' - a bonkers concoction of coconut ice-cream with blueberry and raspberry puree topped with a meringue mermaid tail and edible glitter. Pay a visit to their shop at 53 Brewer Street to try it for free between 1pm and 2pm.
3. Chelsea Physic Gardens are holding a rare 'late' to coincide with its 'Weaves and Leaves' exhibition, which unravels the history of the plants we depend on for fabrics. Visit 'Twine at Twilight' from 6:30pm to sip on textile-inspired cocktails, hear a live harpist, explore the Silk Road in an interactive theatre production and make your own floral head gear. Tickets are £20.
