Time Will Tell Exhibition in Bermondsey
This weekend will be your last chance to catch the exhibition Time Will Tell at White Cube on Bermondsey Street. This will be an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Darren Almond. Focusing on the idea of time and how it is articulated through the language of numbers, he draws attention to the way time can frame, structure and inform our understanding of the world. Almond’s new series of paintings respond to the notion that while time is a theoretical abstraction, it is also a concrete reality within human culture. They also respond to the idea that numbers are the only ‘true common language’ and how the basis of most organizing systems, numbers are a primary determinant of human experience.
Sandi Toksvig Live! National Trevor on Southbank
Half Danish comedian, novelist, actor and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig is touring a brand new, one-woman comedy show that comes to the Royal Festival Hall this weekend. Some people harbor an ambition to be a National Treasure but, following a misunderstanding with a friend, Toksvig has decided instead to be come a National Trevor. Expect tall stories, fascinatingly funny facts, really silly jokes, a quick fire Q&A and a quiz from the host of The Great British Bake Off, QI and Fifteen to One.

Making A New World in Kennington
Coming to the Imperial War Museum in Kennington is a programme of new, free exhibitions, immersive live music, performance and public debates that all come under the title Making A New World. This programme explores how the First World War has shaped the society that we live in today. In the years after the First World War, countries, cities and individuals had to regenerate and rebuild themselves on an extraordinary scale. From the devastation and loss, a new world emerged. Through this programme, you can expect to discover the innovation and resourcefulness that shaped the rebuilding and regeneration of the world post-war, revealing resilience and creativity in times of great change.
