A night of rock and roll and sinning and with food and drinks.

Yelp, the largest local review website in the world, is throwing a two-night Red and White Bash to celebrate everything local in London.

Which one are you. Saint or Sinner?

Represent the side of your choice at Yelp’s 10th Birthday Party celebrations. Find your inner elegance and dress to impress, all in white, for their beautiful ballroom bash. Or indulge your devilish side and prepare to rock out, all in red, at their underground concert.

The first, an elegant night in white in the lovely ballroom of the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel. Followed by, a grittier rock and roll evening in red at Under The Bridge, the multi-million pound music venue built into Chelsea Stadium.

Visit Yelp’s website for more information about both events.

@ National Gallery, Trafalgar Square London WC2N 5DN

Tickets: £8 book online

www.nationalgallery.org.uk

From lapis lazuli to cobalt blue, to dazzling gold and silver – travel through the story of colour with the National Gallery.

‘Making Colour’, the first exhibition of its kind in the UK, invites you on an artistic and scientific voyage of discovery. From sparkling minerals to crushed insects, learn about the surprising materials used to create pigments and the incredible journeys made by artists in their pursuit of new hues.

Span hundreds of years from the early Renaissance to the Impressionist movement as you take in displays of paintings, mineral specimens, textiles, ceramics and glass.

Journey from lapis lazuli to cobalt blue, ancient vermilion to bright cadmium red, through yellow, orange, purple and verdigris to deep green viridian – in a series of colour-themed rooms. Finally, enter a dazzling central room devoted to gold and silver.

‘Making Colour’ is complemented by an interactive display that introduces a new world of contemporary scientific thought on colour. Designed to demonstrate how we perceive and register colour, the experiment will reveal how the eye and brain respond to colour in unexpected ways.

A stir-fry of war-torn Hong Kong

The story of Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation in the 1940s as told through the eyes of a Cantonese chef and her pet goose. Using physical theatre, puppetry and object manipulation, Out of Chaos brings a relatively little-known chapter of colonial history among UK audiences to life with playfulness and kitchen utensils.

This is the first full-length production of Out of Chaos, a theatre company dedicated to telling stories inspired by East Asia, in particularly Hong Kong and China. This original work is conceived by Artistic Director Paula Siu and devised by the Company. Extracts of The Flying Roast Goose were previously shown at Blue Elephant’s scratch night, Trunkated, in May 2013, Oval House in December 2012 and Pulse Festival 2013. The Flying Roast Goose is produced in association with Yellow Earth Theatre and supported by the Arts Council England.
