The London Nobody Knows. Part of Urban Wandering: Film and the London Landscape at the Barbican, there will be a rare screening of a precious document that reveals the underside of London in 1967. As the Barbican website states, James Mason acts as our guide to covert parts of the city, showing us places which, at that time, had survived the bulldozer. Street markets, entertainers and the homeless are seen as the camera tours locations such as the Bedford Theatre in Camden Town, the men’s toilets at Holborn station and Chapel Market. I've seen fragments of this documentary and it looks amazing, definitely a must seen. More info here, and the rest of the Urban Wandering program here.

Part of Festival of Neighbourhood Festival and London Wonderground, the Southbank Center presents the London Swing Dance Society promising 'a night of scintillating jazz, cool swing, hot jive and scorching rock'n'roll. The evening kicks off with beginners and intermediate lindy hop classes from 7.45pm to 8.30pm. Features a live band, swing DJs and a vintage dance cabaret'. More info here.
