To Do List Daily: Unmissable Things To Do in London | Mon 1 – Sun 7 June 2020
And so, June arrives, and the world says “meh”.
Well, we’re here to cheer you up with more unmissable things to do in London.
Responsible types that we are, we’re still championing the “stay home” message – so enjoy this list from the safety of your own home.
This week: life drawing, amazing music, side-splitting comedy, epic food to your doorstep and more!
#1 – Sharpen your pencils for a night of life-drawing!
June is all about the ladies… each week Outside the Box will celebrate the female form in all its beauty, whilst working with women who empower other women.
Outside the Box will be raising money to donate to the REFUGE charity who support thousands of women and children against domestic violence.
All levels welcome…there’s no such thing as ‘I can’t draw’.
#2 – Look behind the enchanted curtain to find out how an exhibition grows from the first seed of an idea…
Curator of ‘The Enchanted Interior’ exhibition, Madeleine Kennedy, shares behind-the-scenes insights into how the exhibition evolved, from the initial inspiration to the design within the gallery, and “the heightened contemporary resonance of works by women artists that speak to resilience in the face of isolation”.
#3 – Go ambisonic with a 360 music festival!
Prepare to take a deep dive into a wild and wonderful universe of amazing tunes and visuals – ARRAY will blow your mind with three nights of full sound immersion and ambisonic 360 art videos. It’s everything you didn’t know your lockdown needed!
#4 – Laugh your socks off (if you haven’t already turned them into DIY face masks)
Your mega line-up this Saturday includes Frankie Boyle, Dane Baptiste, Dan Nightingale, Fran Lobo and host Kiri Pritchard-McLean. Have a laugh, and raise money for The Trussell Trust while you’re at it.
#5 – Hang up your apron – let MAPA bring the dinner to your door…
MAPA serve wholesome, generous food direct to your door (if you’re lucky to live reasonably near to New Cross’s The White Hart pub. Recent menu’s have include sexy burgers, Columbian Fried Mushrooms, and vegetarian ground “beef” (we only look at the veggie options!). This week, nothing’s going to stop us booking a delivery of Crispy Enoki Mushrooms, Satay “Chicken” Skewers, Coconut Caramel Puddings and all the rest! Pre-order by 7pm Friday for Saturday delivery!
What should be on our next things to do in London – lockdown 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.
