Reserve a free ticket in advance and don’t forget to stick your masterpiece on the fridge. The Design Museum. Tube: High St Kensington. Starts Fri Nov 2.

The Body Shop’s Enchanted Forest

Wingstop giveaway

Upgrade your lunch at the first European branch of Rick Ross’s US-based fried chicken restaurant. It’s already built up a serious cult following.
