People enjoying the free Chinese New Year celebrations in Trafalgar Square last weekend by Aydeen

How to get your jollies on just the jingling change in your threadbare pockets this week.

Tonight: Enjoy a free peculiar walk round Clapham with a Squeeze earworm plus "sects & drugs and moments of madness". Meet at Clapham South tube, 7pm. RSVP here.

Friday: Pie + mash + pub + London songs and films + indie = a marvellous Friday at the Vauxhall Griffin. Free admission, 8pm til late.

Over at the V&A it's the start of the Digital Design Festival weekend, celebrating the decode exhibition, starting with a late 6.30-10pm. All events free but some may be ticketed.

Saturday: They've already got a protest song but now the campaign to save Whittington Hospital A&E steps up with a march from Highbury Corner, gathering in Highbury Fields at midday and walking through Holloway to the Hospital.

Wikipedia fans, if you can stretch to £5.80 for admission (£3.25 for kids) it would be a good weekend to visit the Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret as they want you to come, learn and photograph then update their entry as part of Britain hearts Wikipedia.
