SBC Roof Garden with Paté de Fuá and Perhaps Contraption | Southbank Centre Roof Garden | 7pm | £14

They Say: Frolic upon meadows of music, bathe in waves of a grassy haze, recline in the high pastures of acousticity with the finest shepherds of sound. Summer’s choice purveyors of sonorous indulgence will provide the soundtrack to the skyline of London and Mother Thames. Bring pillows, brollies and a sweet-toothed ear.

Of Saints and GoGo Boys | Toynbee Studios | Various Times | £12

Inspired by Jean Genet’s novel ‘Our Lady of the Flowers’, Of Saints and Go-Go Boys is an immersive descent into a world of misfits and sinners that honours the abject and the sacred.

They Say: In a hedonistic world decorated with cheap glamour, three outcasts search for a different kind of Sainthood through glorious self-destruction, glitter snorting and blood. Under a neon shrine to dead porn stars Divine, Darling and Our Lady of the Flowers recount the wild and spirited final chapter of their little queer family.
