To Do List Daily: Unmissable Things To Do in London | Mon 16 – Sun 22 March 2020
We stand in solidarity with creatives and event-makers during the Covid-19 pandemic – they make our world interesting, but they shouldn’t be exposed to greater risk than anyone else.
So, for the foreseeable future, we’ll be recommending great Things To Do which hopefully won’t put you – or them – at risk.
Read on for some great Things To Do in London this week, and don’t forget – keep washing those hands!
Monday 16 March 2020
There’s really no excuse not to be catching up on some of the excellent fiction that’s come out in recent months, not least Bernadine Evaristo’s Booker-winning novel – just out in paperback.

You might have cupboards full of dried pasta, but you should treat yourself when you can! The Shoreditch branch of plant-based burger purveyor Halo Burger has a special Vegan Katsu Cheeseburger (only available until 9th April) that will banish your hunger! Oh, and it’s available on Deliveroo too, so you can order-in when you’ve run out of pesto…
Wednesday 18 March 2020
Chill-out mid-week by catching up with the back-catalogue of Shola Aleje’s Mood for Moderns – a monthly show taking in tunes from the early days of Krautrock to the sounds of The Haçienda, plus some of Shola’s current favourite earworms.

Okja/Snowpiercer Double-Bill (On Your Sofa)
If you loved Parasite, or even if you were just intrigued, take advantage of some time in front of the TV or laptop to catch director Bong Joon-ho’s two previous films: Okja (Netflix), the story of a genetically-modified super pig which turned the To Do List team off of meat for good; and Snowpiercer (Amazon), a crazy-cool apocalyptic steampunk sci-fi thriller set on a globe-trotting train populated by climate-disaster survivors…

Avoid large crowds in small spaces, sure, but make sure to catch some air whenever you can, be it on a lunch-break or at the end of the day. This walk along a disused railway cutting from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace is a beautiful oasis away from the craziness of the city.

If you can, shop and support smaller producers and sellers who can keep you stocked with fresher and healthier food than those tins of beans from the supermarket. Our local seasonally-sourced food market, Brockley Market is open to the elements so hopefully a safe-space to pick up some fresh fruit & veg to keep us all well-nourished.

Escape the city if that’s what you need – and if it’s any encouragement, aim to spend an hour or two in the company of cute little piggies at this wonderful farm in Amersham.
Do you have a suggestion for our next London to do list?
I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
