Put that debit card back in your pocket! Here are the week’s best free events
If Zone 6 remains a mystery to you, spare a thought for theoretical physicists. Only 5 percent of the universe can be observed, while the rest is a combo of dark matter and dark energy. The Science Gallery has commissioned a group of contemporary artists to boldly go... who know’s where? That’s the point: these artworks respond to everything we don’t know. Yet.
Science Gallery. Tube: London Bridge. Thu Jun 6-Aug 26.
YMCA Club is celebrating 175 years with free classes – from 80s aerobics to HIIT. If you fancy wearing vintage sportswear or leg warmers, there’s a prize for the best fancy dress. Book online.
YMCA Club. Tube: Tottenham Court Rd. Thu Jun 6.

Various locations. Fri Jun 7.

Fugitive Motel. Tube: Bethnal Green. Fri Jun 7.
