So it’s a four day week this week which means the weekend BEGINS TOMORROW. And with all that extra energy saved up from your extra day off, you really should get out and do something spectacular before we all go back to the old five day week we’ve almost forgotten. Here is Eatupp’s round-up of the five best things to do with your time this weekend.
1. Giant Monopoly board in Trafalgar Square
What the heck: This weekend marks the start of the London Games Festival, and aside from all the cool-tech summits and conferences happening around the city, we figured the best way to take part would be to get along to the giant Monopoly board which will be set up in Trafalgar Sq. You can run amok on the largest board every created and release your inner property mogul.
Where the heck: Trafalgar Square
When the heck: Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd of April
How much tho’: Freeeeeee (probably no free parking or £200 for passing go though)
2. Crafty Fox Spring Market
What the heck: If you’re feeling crafty this weekend, or just love a good old artisan market, the Crafty Fox Spring Market should be your go-to activity this weekend. With over 100 unique designers showcasing their wares, the market is bursting with beautifully crafted clothes, art and homewares. There are also a few nifty artsy workshops going on – fancy some marbling?
Where the heck: The CLF Cafe, Peckham
When the heck: 11am-5pm, Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd April
How much tho’: Freeeeee entry to the market, but bring some pocket money to treat yourself
3. Bricks in the Sky
What the heck: bRediscover your childhood this weekend with the lego exhibition Bricks in the Sky at the ArcelorMittal Orbit. See some of the world’s most impressive buildings built out of lego on the highest viewing gallery, 80m above London.
Where the heck: ArcelorMittal Orbit, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
When the heck: bSat 2nd April through to 10th
How much tho’: A tenner on the door
4. Christabel’s Mad Hatters Brunch Party
What the heck: Join Christabel & co for Sunday brunch like you’ve never had it before. At a secret location overlooking Regent’s Canal, prepare to slide down the rabbit hole in to an afternoon of frivolity and debauchery. Greeted with a tea party cocktail and suitable imbibery, prepare to entire Wonderland. BYOB advised
Where the heck: It’s a secret! The location is revealed later today
When the heck: Midday, Sun 3rd April
How much tho’: £35 for an all you can guzzle on brunch
5. Alexander Calder: Performing Sculpture
What the heck: bClosing this weekend, it’s your last chance to see the Alexandar Calder exhibition at the Tate Modern. Hailed as the inventor of the mobile, or the sculpture that moves without mechanics, the exhibition showcases some of his most beautiful and intricate pieces and explores the life of the man who brought sculpture to life.
Where the heck: The Tate Modern, Bankside
When the heck: From now until Sun 3rd April
How much tho’: £14.50-£18.00 – worth it.
We hope you have a fantastic weekend filled with fun, frivolity and frolicking. Enjoy the rest of this short week, you only need to make it through another day and a half!
