From an Insta-worthy installation to fashion career talks, this week is packed with fun freebies
Big neon writing at White Cube
Sprawling, humming white lights are the best bit of Cerith Wyn Evans’s show ‘No Realm of Thought... No Field of Vision’. They form a glowing wall that spells out a passage by Proust, of very long novel fame, translated into Japanese kanji characters. It’s Instagram fodder for Ace & Tate- framed intellectuals. We love it. White Cube Bermondsey. Borough. Until Apr 19.
Fitness with dogs in Lambeth
Sick of your pet pup lounging around the flat, binging on treats and making absolutely no effort to get beach-body ready? Head to Rover.com’s strength and cardio class for humans and dogs, and get shredded together. Siobhan Davies Studios. Elephant & Castle. Thu Feb 20.
Bookshop crawl through London
Get the rounds in on a crawl of London’s finest establishments. By ‘rounds’ we mean indulgent flicks through novels, and by ‘establishments’ we mean nice bookshops – but who says you can’t get drunk along the way, too? Multiple venues. Fri Feb 21-Sun Feb 23.
Storytelling at the Union Chapel
Daylight Music’s free gigs always feel as cosy as an afternoon at your nan’s, but this Saturday’s is turning things up to Extremely Wholesome with a retelling of fairytale ‘The Snow Queen’ via retro psych-folk and readings. Union Chapel. Highbury & Islington. Sat Feb 22.
Fashion career help in Stratford
Aged under 25? Lucky you. Not only can you neck seven wines on a weeknight and make it to work unscathed (the cut-off for that is 29), but you can also attend this day of talks co-run by the V&A, about making it in the badlands of fashion. Stratford Circus Arts Centre. Stratford. Sat Feb 22.
