FOOD: Anarch-Tea at W London
When Johnny Rotten sang ‘God Save the Queen’, he was aiming to spark societal revolution. Didn’t quite work (happy 90th, Ma’am), but as a pleasing alternative, four decades on the song HAS sparked a revolution in, um, afternoon teas. YEAH, have that, status quo! Because to celebrate 40 years since the punk movement, W London’s new Anarch-Tea brings you sweet treats inspired by iconic tunes from the era. So ‘Shut Up’ becomes strawberry mousse lips sealed with a silver zip, ‘21st Century Boy’ becomes Mohican-topped cake – and ‘God Save the Queen’? Well that becomes red, white and blue Battenburg, complete with marzipan crown. Just what Mr Rotten had in mind, we’re sure.

NIGHTLIFE: Bestival presents The Future at The Bussey Building
So, this year’s Bestival is themed on – you guessed it – the future. And their vision of things to come is less about flying cars and downloadable burgers (wait, we LIKE that idea…), more about speaker-smashing sounds, hip DJs and, we quote, ‘advanced entertainment action’. And what better place to showcase exactly what that entails than Peckham’s Bussey Building? Touching down this Friday, expect space-age sets from Riton, Gotsome and Krywald & Farrer, plus a special Purple Rave tribute to Prince courtesy of Tayo and Rob Da Bank. We can predict the future too: it involves good times aplenty.
