Things To Do Today In London: Friday 21 September 2018

Life is a cabaret for Teatro Pomodoro

What we’re reading:

Things to do:

ST JOHN BAKERY LAUNCH: To much fanfare, St. JOHN — the restaurant group that’s become as famous for its doughnuts as it is for its meaty nose-to-tail cuisine — is opening its first permanent bakery in Covent Garden today. Grab a bite and keep an eye out for owner and chef extraordinaire Fergus Henderson, who’s signing limited edition t-shirts to mark the occasion. St. JOHN Bakery (Neal’s Yard), free entry, just turn up, opens 8am, t-shirt signing 12pm-3pm

TOOTOPIA: Discover the marvels of SW17 with three full days of street food, parties, performances, and workshops. Highlights include a family rave, a secret cinema, and a street food takeover. Various venues (Tooting Broadway), book ahead for some events, from 12.30pm, until 23 September

POP ART WORKSHOP: Turn your favourite pop culture icon into a work of pop art with the help of artist and designer Pearl Harvey. Don’t worry if you fail to unleash your inner Warhol, there’s plenty of Pearl’s own designs for you to purchase. Theatre Deli (Broadgate), free, book ahead, 1pm-2pm

CAKE CLASS: Picture the scene — you’re sat in a pristine kitchen guzzling wine, while a topless baker feeds cake that (almost) looks too good to eat. Nope, you’re not dreaming — it’s YouTube sensation The Topless Baker’s latest demo class. This time he’ll be teaching you how to create a gorgeous drip cake with a chocolate sail. KitchenAid London Experience Store (Bond Street), £50, book ahead, 5.30pm-7.30pm

RED BULL REVELRY: Gearing up for a night on the tiles? Red Bull’s got some ace recommendations for starting your evening in style. Whether it’s a cable car night flight or playing dress up in Covent Garden, there’s plenty of fresh new ways to keep you entertained. (Sponsor)

Sax and spoken word by the side of the canal.

WORD ON THE WATER: London’s floating bookbarge is squeezing in one last hurrah before the gets a bit too brisk to be lounging around on Regent’s Canal towpath. Grab a bottle of your favourite wine and head down to the water for an evening of radical literature, spoken word, and live jazz. Word on the Water, Granary Square (King’s Cross), free, just turn up, 6pm-11pm

GREENWICH PENINSULA AT SUNSET: Before you know it, you’ll be leaving work in the dark . So why not make the most of those dwindling daylight hours with a sunset stroll through Greenwich Peninsula? Follow The Line Sculpture Trail, indulge in a spot of bird-watching, and wander through the historic Angerstein Wharf. Meet outside North Greenwich station, £10, book ahead, 6.30pm-8.30pm

SCIENCE-Y STUFF: If you’ve ever wondered what colour the universe is, or whether we really only use 10% of your brain, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is here to help feed your insatiable curiosity. Join him in Mayfair for a night of scientific exploration. The Royal Institution (Mayfair), £16, book ahead, 7pm

MOSES SUMNEY: Word-of-mouth sensation Moses Sumney brings his genre bending tunes and haunting vocals to the Southbank Centre tonight. Expect such strange delights as moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz standards. Royal Festival Hall (Southbank Centre), £20, book ahead, 8pm

VINERY HONESTY BAR: Sick of central London bars taking the mick with overpriced bottles of plonk? This could be the pop up for you. At Vinery London, you get to sample some exceptionally tasty wine, and at the end of the night simply pay what you think the evening is worth. Syrup of Soot (Bloomsbury), £10, book ahead, 8pm-12am

TEATRO POMODORO: How about kicking off your weekend with a nice (and naughty) bit of cabaret? In Teatro Pomodoro’s hall of mirrors, no topic is off limits — no matter how bawdy, political, or downright perverse. Watermans (Brentford), £15, book ahead, 8.30pm

Good cause of the day

If you’re looking for a way to pay it forward and live within easy reach of Camden or Islington, why not swing by Canopy Market in King’s Cross for a chance to find the volunteer role of your dreams? 28 local non-profits pitch up at the Camden and Islington September 2018 Volunteering Fair in search of locals looking to give back.
