Tonight

The Illustrated London Noise unfolds tonight at the ICA. THis collective of record-hunting obsessives meet every month to share their vinyl findings and the evening can include any number of musical discoveries from gospel to psychedelia, from punk rock to Japanese drumming. If you're going, you're invited to bring your own favourite discovery (vinyl only, please!) to share with everyone else - the aim is to "surprise and delight even the most hardened crate digger." The Illustrated London Noise, at the ICA bar tonight from 8.00pm, £2.00 entry, members free. For more information, go to the ICA website here.

For those of you wanting to see a famous moment of TV brought to life in the theatre Frost / Nixon opens tonight at the Donmar Warehouse. Michael Sheen plays David Frost interviewing Richard Nixon just after the breaking of the Watergate affair. The interview drew the biggest audience for a TV news interview and is brought to the stage with the same anticipation and expectation it had back then - will David Frost get an apology from the Nixon for the biggest felony in American history? Frost / Nixon opens at the Donmar Warehouse tonight, for tickets and more information, go to the theatre website here.

Friday

There's stuff to see in the Trafalgar Square Festival this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Dance, acrobatics and music can be seen for free on each of the days. For more information and a full programme, check the Trafalgar Square Festival website here.

Watch This Spacecontinues outside the National Theatre - the Bring and Share Late Lounge is back on Friday night, bring your own music to play and share with the crowd, music and street theatre abound... For more information and a full programme, check the Watch This Space website here.

Saturday

For a bit of green space and a night out, head to the Serpentine Gallery to see what is happening there as part of the Time Out Park Nights series. Doesn't seem to have a film scheduled for the weekend but lots going on nonetheless. More information available on the website here.

As there is no film being screened at the Serpentine, but you're in the mood for a movie outdoors, then perhaps you should enter our lovely competition for lovely tickets to see a lovely film at the lovely Somerset House... Sometimes, we spoil you, we really do.

Sunday

Only one thing to do on Sunday: the London Mela, 12noon to 8.00pm in Gunnersbury Park. This celebration of all things South Asian is free and will feature a heap of classical, fusion and urban Asian music as well as stalls, food and activities for kids. Watch out for the giant Bengal Tiger float - it roars as well as rocks.
