FOOD: Wringer & Mangle’s Tea Party
A gentle reminder: it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday. But WAIT! Before you drop everything and run to the nearest garage for a box of Milk Tray – there’s still time to arrange an altogether cooler surprise for your mum. Especially if she likes gin (and most mums do, we find). Presenting the new afternoon tea from hip London Fields venue Wringer & Mangle, where alongside the traditional finger sarnies, delish pastries and cake, you get to knock back gin cocktails served in self-cooling infusion jars and vintage tea cups. Beats the hell out of an Assam, we reckon… Favourite-child status, guaranteed.
Served 2pm-5pm daily; £30 Wringer & Mangle, The Laundry Building, 13-18 Sidworth Street, E8 3SD
ART: Creative In Focus
Warning: arty questions, incoming… What is authenticity in a picture? Do you want it, or something hyper-real, that goes beyond the norm? Is it possible to have both? Does it matter? All this and more is explored by the major new photographic exhibition at the Getty Images Gallery, looking at modern life and its contradictions. Which is a long way of saying: you should go see these 70 stop-you-in-your-tracks stunning images. That much, at least, is beyond question.
Until 26 March; free. Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street, LondonW1W 8DX
