Fun events and things to do in London

Fun events and free things to do in London

This week’s events are all free which means there’s no reason not to try them out.

If you love Frank Ferdinand head down to the HMV store Oxford Street on Monday 26th at 1pm as they’ll be performing a special there and the event is free.

The Taking Liberties exhibition at the British Library is worth catching to remind us of how hard it has been for freedom of speech to be won. For more details go to British Library.

The Apple store on New Oxford Street is running a tips and tricks session on Thursday 29th on their pro creative application. The title of the session is Photography hints and tricks with Aperture 2, so if that’s your thing head down there for the 2pm or 7pm session.

On Friday 30th if you’re in the mood for some Bach, Britten and Dutilleux you can hear Trinity student Stjepan Hauser tackling their work. The event starts at 6.30 at The National Portrait Gallery.

Monday is the start of Chinese New Year but Sunday sees London start celebrating the Chinese New Year. Events start at 12 noon in Trafalgar Square with firecrackers, dragon dance and traditional theatre. Head towards China Town for more activities and stalls.

And let’s not forget it’s Superbowl on Sunday. You could go to any of the Bodeans restaurants to see the game, but with tickets at £25 and the hassle of getting back to your hotel. Your best option is to buy some beers and snacks from Tesco or Sainsburys supermarket and watch it at the hotel on BBC start 11pm.

Also I should mention about an article that you’d find useful if you’re a London motorist and your car breakdowns. The article is about Mr Clutch and whether its clutches are cheaper. You can read about it by clicking Mr Clutch.

Finally London’s weather can be unpredictable so click What’s London weather like to get an accurate forecast.
