Wandsworth Common Beer Festival

The weather has taken a good turn this week, so why not head to the Wandsworth Common Beer Festival this weekend?

With over 100 beers from across the country, there’s enough to suit every taste.  Children are welcome in the afternoons and along with the beer there’s plenty of entertainment on hand – they’re even showing the Wales v England match this afternoon.

Non-beer fans needn’t worry – cider and wine is on tap too.

Entry is a mere £2 (£1 CAMRA) and it’s all on at the Royal Victoria Patriotic Building on John Archer Way.

Head down there 1-11pm on Saturday and 1-4pm on Sunday.

Nearest Station: Wandsworth Town

International Chessboxing

Chess.  Boxing .  Combined, they make chessboxing.  And tonight, you have a chance to watch it.

So…what exactly is it?

Basically, what it says on the tin.  Designed to challenge you mentally and physically, participants take part in a quick warm up and then take turns to challenge each other in the ring – just like a normal training session.  But during the short recovery periods, athletes can also challenge each other over a game over chess.

After all the action, get involved with the cabaret dance party which will keep you entertained until the early hours.

Tickets are from £15 and are available only through the website.  There will be a limited number on the door.

It’s happening at the Dome at The Boston Arms, 178 Junction Road, from 7pm.

Nearest Tube: Tufnell Park
