Weekend Guide 15.08.14

FRIDAY

A rum business

Limber up for next week’s big Carnival by chowing down on Rum Kitchen’s juicy Jerk Chicken Supreme. Elasticated waist bands at the ready – we’ll excuse you for ordering a second plate…

The Rum Kitchen, 6-8 All Saints Road, W11 1HH, therumkitchen.com, £13.50

Scintillating symphonies

Strauss, Rameau, Rands, Mozart… and the Scottish Symphony Orchestra; in other words, all the makings of a classic evening. Don’t forget the Proms Plus Late after the show…

Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, SW7 2AP, royalalberthall.com 19:30 

SATURDAY

Mums on the move

Join the Kensington Mums Fit Club for a spot of work out – all fitness levels welcome, so there is no excuse. It’s a free event, but you need to be a  Kensington Mum member – but that too is free!

Kensington Mums Fit Club, 2-24 Kensington High St,, London , W8 4PT, kensingtonmums.co.uk, 10:30, FREE

Beautiful, bountiful beer

The annual Great British Beer Festival is in full swing, and it is, quite frankly, criminal to give it a miss ­– 55,000 beer lovers enjoying more than 900 brews over five days… well you get the picture! We’re hopping (sorry) with excitement.

Olympia, Hammersmith Road, Kensington, W14 8 UX, gbbf.org.uk, £10

SUNDAY

Oi! Oysters, please!

Head to The Commander for its seafood special: six Oysters, two glasses of Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve NV, £22. ‘Nuff said. Book a table!

The Commander, 47 Hereford Road, W2 5AH; thecommanderbar.co.uk, £22

The Wright stuff

Catch The Congress, Ari Folman’s imaginative half-animated, half-live film with Robin Wright playing herself as a an actress with whom the youth-obsessed Hollywood has tired. Brilliant animation and a sobering comment on fame’s transcience.

Gate Picturehouse, 87 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3JZ, picturehouse.co.uk, 20:00, £13,60
