Weekend Guide 18.04.14

Friday

Shopping at Lark

Founded by Vogue chief sub-editor Lucy Olivier and former model Phoebe Pring, Lark brings the most desirable brands to west London’s hottest new shopping destination. If it’s good enough for a Vogue clacker…

Lark, 52 Chamberlayne Road, NW10 3JH, larklondon.com

 

Run in at Whippet Inn

In keeping with things new and shiny, only a few feet away from Lark, this new bistro pub is well worth a visit. Drop in, laden with your new acquisitions and restore yourself with a Croque Monsieur and a glass of something ice cold…

The Whippet Inn, 64-66 Chamberlayne Road, NW10 3JJ

 

Rubberbiscuit at KPH

Jack Penate may be best known as a singer-songwriter but you can catch him turning his hand to the decks this weekend at KPH’s Upstairs Theatre Bar. Along with fellow DJs Louis Waymouth and Fred Bartlett, he’ll be spinning records spanning rock ‘n roll, soul and blues.

 

Upstairs Theatre Bar, 139 Ladbroke Grove, W10 6HJ, thekph.com, 20:00, £5

 

Saturday

 

School of Comedy

Does your child shows signs of being the next Russell Howard (or Kane or Brand for that matter)? Then send your budding comedian to the School of Comedy, where 8 to 12 year olds can learn their own unique brand of improv, sketch and character comedy. Peter Cook eat your heart out.

The Tabernacle, 35 Powis Square, off Portobello Road, W11 2AY, tabernaclew11.com, 10.30 – 11.45

 

Faberge Eggs at Maggie & Rose

They may not be jewel-encrusted, but Maggie & Rose offers young ones  aged 3 to 5 the opportunity to make their own gold foiled Faberge egg. Beats the cornflake cakes topped with Cadbury mini eggs of our youth.

Maggie & Rose, 58 Pembroke Road, W8 6NX, eventbrite.co.uk, £45, 16.15-17.45

 

Oz the Great and Powerful

To finish up this day of family fun, take the crowd for a screening of Oz the Great and Powerful in the comfy seats (or couches) of the Electric Cinema.

Electric Cinema, 191 Portobello Road, W11 2ED, electriccinema.co.uk, £15-£45
