Kensal Flea

Kensal Flea is a boutique flea market popping up this weekend.

Organised by Park Life – a blog for residents in Kensal Rise and Queen’s Park – there’s a whole bunch of stuff going on throughout Saturday, March 19, and it all sounds fab.

£1 entry gets you into the market which will be hosting stalls selling a variety of wares, including  jewellery, clothing, cakes, vintage fashion and homewares and more.

The entry fee will be donated to a couple of charities, including the local Lexi Cinema.

There’ll also be a pop-up art gallery and a selection of refreshments (including a pie stall, yum!) – as well as entertainment in the way of bands and DJs – and 6 Music presenter Shaun Keaveny will be hosting things from 1-3pm.

If that’s not enough, there’s an after-flea party with comedy from 7:30pm (£2 charitable donation), and then at 9pm a DJ will be on to entertain you for the evening (£3 entry).

It’s all taking place at Paradise by way of Kensal Green, 19 Kilburn Lane.  The flea market opens at 12pm and runs til 5:30pm.  You can get more info and RSVP on the Facebook event page.

Nearest Tube: Kensal Green.  Kensal Rise, Queen’s Park and Ladbroke Grove are all nearby.

Cake Britain

Fancy a quiet afternoon instead of the carnival?  Cake Britain might be the answer.

For those of you who listened to the radio show, you’ll know I have a penchant for food generally, but cakes in particular.  So this exhibition of arty cakes is right up my street.

Artists have created tons of sculptures, from pirates to birds – all of which are edible.  The best bit is that you can have a taste.

Cake Britain, which has been created by the Mad Artists’ Tea Party, finishes tomorrow, Sunday, August 29 and is on show at The Future Gallery on Great Newport Street.  It’s open 10am-6pm.

It’s free to enter, but donations are welcomed.

Nearest Tube: Leicester Square
