Set inside what was the renowned neo-classical architect’s home once upon a time, Sir John Soane’s Museum has been kept exactly as it was when he died in 1837 – a preserved time capsule for anyone who wants to travel almost 200 years back in time. You’ll find Soane’s immense collection of antiques, furniture, sculptures, architectural models and paintings inside, as well as his newly-refurbished Drawing Office (the oldest surviving of its kind). They also host regular exhibitions, talks and ‘Soane Lates’ through which you can learn even more about the history of London and its buildings.

The Corner Shop at Selfridges has announced its latest pop-up, this time a valuing, repair and exchange service modelled after the London Stock Exchange. The Stock Market has transformed the ground level of the department store into a ‘trading floor’, complete with data-filled screens reminiscent of those found at the LSE. Guests will be able to bring along items from their wardrobe to be valued by Selfridges’ ‘stockbrokers’ (which you can sell for store credit) who’ll advise on how to increase that value by upcycling, whether through hand-beading moth holes or customising with frills and applique. You’ll also be able to repair and restore items with a helping hand from SOJO, The Handbag Clinic, Vintage Threads, and SneakersER.

6 Leicester Pl, London WC2H 7BX, UK

Two British pastimes (drinking and theatre) come together with Sh!t-faced Shakespeare, the only play in town where you can guarantee that the actor drunk on stage is meant to be. This summer, the tipsy troop is bringing their rendition of Much Ado About Nothing to town, with a rotating cast member each night asked to drink as much booze as they can get their hands on four hours before curtains up. Expect Shakespearean theatre as you’ve never seen it before and – we suppose, in preparation for the worst – sit towards the back.

114 Junction Rd, Archway, London N19 5LB, UK

The Queer Comedy Club is the UK’s first permanent LGBTQ+ comedy club, born out of founders David Ian, Jeremy Topp and Kate Dale’s experiences of the stand-up circuit. Feeling that comedy clubs were overwhelmingly straight and macho scenes, the trio decided to set the QCC up as a place for emerging and established queer comics to perform to an audience that gets it. The Big Thursday Show (ticketed at £10) has seen the likes of Jessica Fostekew, Stephen Bailey, Jen Ives and James Barr take to the stage, while their Monday and Tuesday shows are free and feature new acts, new material, allies and friends (for the Not Totally QCC nights).

54 Shepherd Market, London W1J 7QX, UK

In honour of Mental Health Awareness Month, Nick Williams is exhibiting his latest series of paintings that showcase the impact of art on the mind at 54 The Gallery in Shepherd Market. Having suffered mental breakdowns himself, painting is a saviour for him and this exhibition is one full of colour and hope. Williams uses the architecture and interiors he saw on a trip to Cuba; a lush subtropical garden, which he first imagined and then recreated at home; and the pair of snakes he looked after and the shedding of their skins as inspiration for his work, where he explores the theme of escape.

At the end of May, Baohaus will take up residency at Neighbourhood in Islington (with home delivery also available) for 13 weeks, serving up a menu featuring many of the signature dishes that made a splash in at the NYC location, like the Chairman Bao (braised pork belly with Haus relish, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar & cilantro), the Manager’s Meal (red cooked pork belly, minced pork stew and Birdhaus fried chicken served with Haus relish & cilantro) and the Uncle Jesse Bao (organic fried tofu served with Haus sauce, Haus seasoning salt, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar & cilantro).

It’s not summer in London without a BBQ pop-up from Jimmy Garcia, so he’s bringing his BBQ Club back to the Southbank. The club is serving up a six-course menu, including dishes like BBQ asparagus with house labneh, scallop with burnt lime butter & sobrasada, BBQ chicken supreme with coal fired leeks & wild allium emulsion, and beer braised bone marrow & beef cheek doughnut with flat iron yakitori, and you’ll be involved in the cooking, with at least one element of each course coming from the Big Green Eggs on each table. The restaurant will also be doing Sunday lunch barbecue-style with slow-cooked lamb shoulders, grilled veggies and summer salads. If you’re after something a little more casual, the club’s two bars, rooftop terrace and garden patches will be offering a street food menu featuring burgers, lamb kebabs, BBQ trout, halloumi fries, chicken wings and tomato & burrata salads, so you can just walk up, grab your goods and find a sunny spot to sit in.
