London’s leading artist-led fair that connects art lovers of all tastes and experience directly with the most talented emerging artists before they are signed.
Throughout the days there will be creative things to enlighten, entertain and inspire visitors including live performance art, free curated walks, acoustic music sessions and a bar to relax with a coffee or a refreshing cocktail away from the bustle of the fair.
Now the weather is starting to brighten up and get itself together there really is nothing better than taking part in outdoor screenings in two of London’s best venues. Enjoy yourself, have a drink and watch your favourite films.
Lots of films are being shown so check the website for current listings. Flight of the Navigator will be showing on the 5 May and Willow on the 6 May at the Queen of Hoxton.
Every few months InFormed London wait eagerly for the return of REEL MUSIC – and they STRIKE BACK this month with the tagline: May the 4th be with you! Ok, yes, it’s obvious this is a movie-themed club night, and for film fans it’s an uninhibited haven in an underground bowling alley. Here’s what you can expect:
FANCY DRESS is highly encouraged! Come as your favourite film character. Plus… OSCARS awarded to the best dressed. AMERICAN DINER for a Pulp Fiction style snack. POOL if you fancy yourself the Hustler, get your game on! ARCADE GAMES for some old skool arcade action and TEN PIN BOWLING if you want to be ‘the Dude’ and play a few frames as the soundtracks spin. Lanes are pre-bookable (or available on the night) at an additional fee, as are KARAOKE ROOMS, if you want to provide your own musical entertainment. Too much Dirty Dancing?! Take a seat in the CINEMA area where classic movie scores await you! Finally, the PAPARAZZI – snapper to the stars – will be on hand to capture the memories.
We’ve already got our costumes ready, what about you?

A thrilling investigation of crime fiction from the early 1800s to the present day, featuring many of Britain’s best known sleuths.
Crime fiction is not about the squalid details of a murder or the bungling incompetence of a police detective; it is about society, and what happens to it when order breaks down.
Britain, it is safe to say, has had a healthy fascination with this genre of fiction for over 200 years, and this exhibition at the British Library presents an A-Z of crime novels, from the gas-lit horrors of the Victorian era to the pulp paper backs of the 1930s. Locked rooms, monkeys, speckled bands and dark strangers from foreign lands, the peculiar world of the murder mystery is here in all its disquieting glory for the amateur criminologist to enjoy.
Bianco is an immersive promenade experience that takes place above, behind and all around a standing audience. With a constantly evolving narrative set to a pounding soundtrack performed by a live band, this is the kind of all-consuming theatrical experience that can only happen at the Roundhouse.
PUPP are back! After a smashing launch party in March they’re at the disused Kensington pub for another night of flying balls aplenty. They’ve still got it all: gamin’, boozin’ and finger-lickin’ food. Featuring four Olympic-sized tables and due to its former popularity the beerpong corner will also be making a comeback.
