What's on and where to go this weekend

By Kuba Shand-Baptiste on
  • HAVE A BLOODY BIG BRUNCH

    The Bloody Big Brunch is unlike the brunch clubs most will have been to. It's dedicated to promoting period positivity and even has a "red room" for people to discuss period-related things. The boozy part – in the form of Bloody Marys – is still there, of course. And guests will be treated to a drag show and comedy sets, so it's already miles ahead of your average mid-morning event. The Big Boozy Brunch takes place at The Book Club in East London on June 2 from 12-4pm. For tickets and more information, click here

  • DISSENT!

    Museums Sheffield Live Late events never disappoint. And this Friday's event, Dissent!, is no exception. The "festival within a gallery" will include performances from poets, musicians and more, all under the umbrella of what it means to engage in resistance. Performers include poet Zena Edwards and the Neighbourhood Voices choir. The Live Late starts at 7.30pm at the Graves Gallery in Sheffield. For more information and tickets, click here

  • SEE Les Amazones d'Afrique

    Les Amazones d'Afrique – the west African feminist supergroup taking the world by storm – are coming to the Royal Festival Hall this weekend, so you'd better get a ticket. Set to a musical backdrop of funk, dub and blues, the group make a point of campaigning for gender equality in their songs. The concert starts at 7.30pm on 27 May. For more information and tickets, click here

  • BOOK NOW FOR LATER

    Feminism and botany are a match made in heaven, apparently. And the London Drawing Group is here to prove it. They'll be exploring historical figures in botanical art, exploring and gardening, under the tutelage of Luisa-Maria MacCormack, right smack bang in the middle of Kew Gardens. Sketch to your heart's content at this unique drawing class on 30 June at 11am–4.30pm. For more tickets and information about this event, click here
