Put that debit card back in your pocket! Here are the week’s best free events

‘Dark Matter’

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.

Exercise Through the Ages

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.

Fish ’n’ chips cocktails

Wash down your jellied eels  (or battered cod) with a free cocktail at London’s fave chippy Poppies to celebrate National Fish and  Chip Day. A collab with Sarson’s vinegar, the G&T-style bevvies taste of capers and mushy peas. Sounds a bit fishy. 

Various locations. Fri Jun 7.

Fugitive Motel launch

You won’t need rose-tinted glasses to appreciate the pastel-hued interior of new coffee-beer-pizza joint Fugitive Motel. Welcome it to the neighbourhood with a free tipple from 5pm to 9pm. Cheers!

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

World Naked Bike Ride 2019

Riding a bike naked is always free, but for one day only your intimate chafing will: a) not get you arrested and b) count as an eco-protest against those gas-guzzlin’ automobiles. Ride on and enjoy the breeze on your, er, bits.

Various locations. Sat Jun 8.
