Give yourself a pat on the back and a ‘holla’ for making it to Thursday. We’ve been teased with Spring this week – London has been bathed in sunshine but make no mistake – Spring has definitely not sprung just yet. Even so, that’s no excuse to use the weekend to keep hibernating. Get out and about and do something wonderful. Here is our weekly round up of the five best things to do in London this weekend.
1. Chorus Festival at the Southbank Centre

How much tho’: FREEEEE
2. Flower Installation at St Christopher’s Place
What the heck: Artist Rebecca Louise Law has been busy creating a beautiful floral installation for St Christopher’s Place. Over 1200 flowers make up the display and you can go and visit (armed with a camera) all weekend. It will really start to feel like Spring after a visit!
