Things to Do in London This Weekend – 10th & 11th October

This whole week has blitzed past. It feels like I just woke up to go to work on Monday, but no, it’s already Friday. Not that I’m complaining. We’ve got plans this weekend and they are delicious, tasty plans. It’s time for me to take Ben out for his surprise dinner (well, he knows we’re going, but not where we’re going), so the foodie in you should watch this spot for a review of this amazing place. But in the mean time don’t forget to read some of my old posts as some events are on for longer than just the weekend.Things to Do in London This Weekend, Saturday, 10th October 2015

For those of you who missed my Tweet and don’t know London’s Cocktail Week is on this week, you still have a chance to catch up on tasting delicious cocktails at the 24-Hour Bar Build at N&C Showrooms in Shoreditch. Or book tickets for some of the other events, such as Soho Food Walk with Hiccups (£69.50), LCW Wrap Party at East London Liquor Company, Unit GF1, Bow Wharf, 221 Grove Road (open for everyone on Sunday) and many more. The 24-hour build will cost you £35, but you get 5 tokens, which you can exchange for alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails, so it’s really a bargain.

Westbourne Park Garage opens its doors, so you can go around and learn all about the old buses. It’s free and open between 11am and 4pm. Make sure that you get the model of the bus right on Twitter or you will experience being angrily tweeted at and re-tweeted by a number of bus enthusiasts (yes, this happened to yours truly about a year ago – oops).

Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition is on at 180 the Strand. Go and discover the inspiration behind the autumn/winter collection. There is no entry fee and the exhibition is open between 10am and 8pm. You can even join a 20 minute guided tour to learn more.

You can go on a 10mile walk with Peter Berthoud and discover every street in Fitzrovia. You need to book tickets here and there aren’t many left. The walk starts with a breakfast at 10am and finishes at a pub at 5.30pm.

There are more dates available for the Edible Stories‘s latest venture, the For Your Eyes Only James Bond themed dinner. Dress smartly or as your favourite Bond villain and enjoy a four course menu and Martini and canapés at a private London club in Leicester Square for £65. You need to book online in advance.

Frock Me! Vintage Fair is coming to Chelsea Old Town Hall. The vintage merchants will be selling everything from 1920s flapper dresses, unique accessories and vintage jewellery.

Spitalfields Market plays host to the Swing Patrol as they try to set the record for the largest Charleston dance. It’s free, so you can just turn up, but they accept £2 donations for Guy’s Cancer Centre Appeal. The whole thing will be choreographed by Strictly’s Scott Cupit.

Graffik Gallery in Ladbroke Grove is organizing a two-hour graffiti workshop this Sunday. You can book discounted tickets through yPlan at £24 and learn how to create amazing images using aerosols and stencils.

Whatever you end up doing this weekend, have fun.
