Whether you like comedy, art, shopping or music (or all four!), then there’s something for you this weekend on the East London Line.
Thursday September 22: Live At Wilton’s Comedy
Enjoy a comedy evening in the atmospheric grandeur of Wilton’s Music Hall, one of London’s oldest music halls. Featuring jaw-achingly funny comedians, on the bill this week are panel-show regular Lucy Porter, award-winning trio Pappy’s plus Joel Dommett and Ivan Brackenbury, all compered by hilarious New Zealand comic, Jarred Christmas. We’re laughing just thinking about it!
Tickets cost £15, see http://www.wiltons.org.uk/listings for more info.
Friday September 23: Deptford X
The 10-day contemporary art festival kicks off today, with over 50 exhibits and performances in more than 40 local galleries, curated by lead artists Hew Locke and Indra Khanna. Now in it’s thirteenth year, this year sees twelve key pieces of work displayed on billboard sites around Deptford, alongside sculptural works, street art, the spoken word, performance works, installations and walking tours of the festival.
Saturday September 24: Well St Market Fete
Well St Market in Hackney is holding a fete to raise awareness of the market and shops on the street, which are facing closure after rent increases. With facepainting, hair styling, flower arranging, a karate demonstration as well as food and drink stalls, this is a great opportunity to show your support for the local community.

Sunday September 25: In Bloom: The Nirvana Nevermind Exhibition
Don’t miss the last day of this exhibition at Brick Lane’s Loading Bay Gallery, celebrating (unbelievably!) 20 years since the release of Nirvana’s seminal album, Nevermind. Featuring memorabilia, photographs and instruments used by the grunge band, this is a must for fans of the late, great Kurt Cobain, and one of the most-influential bands ever.
Entry is free and the exhibition is open from 1-7pm daily.
