Put your money away! Here are the week’s best free events

‘Somos Brasil’

Get up close and personal with more than 100 Brazilian citizens at this exhibition at the Embassy of Brazil. Showcasing an extensive project by Marcus Lyon, ‘Somos Brasil’ (translation: ‘We are Brazil’) is more than just photography. If you scan the images with your phone, you can hear each person’s story in their own words and see their DNA map. Embassy of Brazil. Tube: Charing Cross. Fri May 10-Jun 7.

Camden Town Brewery giveaway

To celebrate the launch of its Week Nite Any Day Lager, Camden Town Brewery is handing out 1,500 free cans from its Camden bar for a 30-minute frenzy at 5pm tomorrow. Hop to it! Camden Town Brewery Bar. Tube: Chalk Farm. Wed May 8.

National Doughnut Week

Need an afternoon sugar hit? You’re in luck. To celebrate National Doughnut Week, Whole Foods Market Kensington is giving away 1,000 free doughnuts from 3pm on Monday. Sweet! Whole Foods Market Kensington. Tube: High St Kensington. Mon May 13.

Streatham Common Kite Day

See the skies of south London filled with colourful kites at this annual event. You can stick to watching the professionals (yes, there are pro kite flyers) or FYO (that’s fly your own, obviously). Streatham Common. Streatham rail. Sun May 12.

Cabbages & Frocks Dog Day Afternoon

Try out doga, watch a man-and-dog dance performance and catch loads of cute pups battle it out in competitions including ‘waggy tail’ and ‘a bit of ruff’. St Marylebone Parish Church Grounds. Tube: Baker St. Sat May 11.
