It’s almost time to go back to school and this weekend there are a few summertime must-dos coming to an end.
*Exhibitionism at Saatchi Gallery closes on Sunday 4th September and whether you’re a fan of The Rolling Stones or not I recommend anyone who loves music to go see this fantastic exhibition. I wrote a little something about it back in May, which you can read here.
*Not so rock and roll but definitely one of my favourite stories when I was growing up; The Tiger Who Came To Tea finishes its run at Cadogan Hall on Sunday too. I took my three year old along over the bank holiday weekend and he had a great time. The extremely tall tiger was a delight to watch and the songs are fun and memorable. The production lasts 50 minutes and Cadogan Hall is always a great venue to visit.
* It’s also the last weekend to see the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at the Science Museum. At the start of summer I had every intention of checking this out but I fear I’m going to miss this one because time is running out. You can find out more about Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius here.
* The Great River Race takes place on Saturday. It starts at London Docklands at 12.25pm and makes its way towards Richmond; passing Westminster and Putney. The race is due to finish around 3.20pm.
* And if you’re planning on staying in and in need of something to binge-watch then head straight to Netflix and put Stranger Things on if you haven’t already. A love letter to classic 80s movies this is an exceptional series with plenty of twists; interesting characters; fantastic settings and a gripping story. Plus, it has Winona Ryder and classic 80s actor Matthew Modine in it. There’s a reason everyone’s talking about it. It’s brilliant.
