What’s On This Weekend: The Jam Shed Supper Club, A Monster Calls Play & I Want Moor Beer Festival
Pimlico Road Farmers’ Market in Pimlico
Every Saturday in the leafy Orange Square in Pimlico, also known as Mozart Square, there is a lovely weekly farmers’ market. With plenty of space to sit around and soak up the atmosphere on a sunny day, this is also the perfect spot to buy fresh fruits, juices, fresh pasta, free range eggs, lots of quality meat and poultry and fresh fish and shellfish. The smell of artisan breads and cheeses is also quite hard to miss. This particular farmers’ market has previously won the Love London Awards and for good reason. This is a great way to spend your Saturday morning and it is open from 9am to 1pm. This month, apples and plums are in season so will be worth picking up on your visit! Only a short journey 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.
A Monster Calls Play in Waterloo
Patrick Ness’ piercing novel A Monster Calls has been brought to The Old Vic stage in a powerful new adaptation by visionary director Sally Cookson. Since Conor’s Dad moved to America, him and his mum have done just fine. However things have taken a turn for the worse and his mum is sick and he’s having problems with the kids at school. One night, Conor is woken by a monster who walks through his window. It tells tales from when it walked before and encourages Conor to tell his own story and face his deepest fears. This bestselling book-turned-play has been very popular with children and adults alike due to its dazzling insight into love, loss and healing and has won multiple awards for outstanding children’s literature and illustration. Suitable for children aged 10+, this is a great show to take the family to this weekend.

Allelujah! Play in London Bridge
A wonderful new play written by Allan Bennett has been brought to the stage at The Bridge Theatre this summer. Allelujah! directed by Nicholas Hytner, this sharp play tells the story of The Beth, an old-fashioned hospital serving a small town on the edge of the Pennines. Threatened with closure as part of the NHS efficiency drive, a documentary crew eager to capture its fight for survival follow the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward. Described as sharp as The History Boys and as funny as The Lady in the Van, and including well known actors such as Jacqueline Clarke and Deborah Findlay, this is a play well worth watching before its run comes to an end on the 29th September.
I Want Moor Beer Festival in Bermondsey
To help celebrate their 11th year in business, Moor Beer presents Franken Fest! a festival that will be running all weekend at the Moor Vaults in Bermondsey.

Comida Fest in London Bridge
