What’s On This Weekend: North Lambeth Parish Fete, Meltdown Festival & Fun Home Play


BP Portrait Award Exhibition in Westminster

The BP Portrait Award is one of the most prestigious painting competitions in the whole word and is positioned to represent some of the very best in contemporary portrait painting. Aimed at encouraging artists to focus on and develop portraiture in their work, the competition is open to everyone aged over 18. With the BP Portrait Award in its 39th year at the National Portrait Gallery, it now comes with a first prize of £35,000 and a total prize fund of £74,000. To take a closer look at these portraits and to learn more about these artists head over the exhibition this weekend. Only a short walk from our Westminster office, if you’re interested in looking at properties to rent or properties to buy in the area, feel free to drop in and hello to our team who would be happy to help.

Fun Home Play in Waterloo

Fresh from American Broadway, Fun Home is a 5 times Tony Award winning musical production set to take London by storm. Based on Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel, this show traces the life of Alison – from her childhood in a funeral home in the 1970’s, to her college love life and then her coming out. Directed by Sam Gold, some of the issues covered include her complex relationship with her father whom she realizes she has more in common with than she thought and a raw exploration of family, memory and sexuality. Described by Huffington Post as musical theatre at its best, this amazingly original musical will be well worth watching whilst it is in town, so head to the Young Vic this weekend.

Live Jazz in Bermondsey

If you’re local to the London Bridge or Bermondsey area, then head down to Bermondsey Square on Sunday afternoon where Stephen Pierre & The Jazz Collective will be playing to an informal crowd for a relaxed afternoon between 1pm and 4pm. Stephen is a London based jazz and blues singer and The Jazz Collective features a number of fine guest musicians, students and graduates invited from leading music conservatories.
