Woohoo! The clocks have gone forward and although we may still mourning the loss of one hour of precious sleep, it means that Summer is on it’s way! Aaaaaand we’ve a whole 4-day weekend to look forward to. Does life get any better?! Well, we’ve got the goods to keep you going all the way through to Easter Monday!

Backyard Cinema – Mission to Mars

Cinema is taking to the stars as the crew at Backyard Cinema take you on an epic intergalactic adventure! This week you’ll get treated to classics like Aliens and E.T. and newbies The Last Jedi, the latest Star Trek adventures and more. Not to be missed!


As the holy weekend is upon us, it would be wrong to miss out on Christathon, a unique twist to a pub crawl especially for Easter. You’ll have to don a Jesus costume or anything that resembles something Biblical and make your way around London, making sure to enjoy a drink or two along the way as you stop of at a number of biblically named pubs. As the organisers say “aiming to astound not offend, the event is all for a good cause as all participants are asked to make a small donation for charity.”


As it’s officially Spring, warm up for Christathon on Good Friday by getting to Alexandra Palace for German beer hall transformation. There’ll be street food vendors and the chance to work it all off on the dance floor where Club De Fromage will be taking charge of the decks.

Easter Canopy Market

A great opportunity to gorge on hot cross buns, Simnel cake, handcrafted Easter Eggs and so much more as the Easter Canopy Market comes to Kings Cross this long weekend. As well as the food there’ll be local arts and craft, fresh produce and live music and DJs. And don’t forget the Easter Egg hunt!

International Piano Day

Serenade your date (or at least attempt too) as International Piano Day comes to St. Pancras International station this Thursday! If you’re a bit rusty on the old ivories don’t worry, they’ll be offering free piano lessons and encouraging you to play to your heart’s content!

Enjoy this glorious week and we’ll be back with more for you next Tuesday!
