Sunday: Today is Frog Day. Yep. At Camley Street Natural Park N1, Centre for Wildlife Gardening SE15 and East Reservoir Community Garden N4 it's all about the froggies. 10am-4pm, free.

Be part of a "joy explosion" at a free party to celebrate the arrival of spring and the launch of new London social enterprise ‘lifebulb’. Laugh out loud with laughter yoga, make Swedish waffles, paint a pot and plant spring bulbs at the Good Ship, Kilburn. From 2-5pm, all welcome.

Monday: Examine the politics of Pushkin with Professor Robert Chandler at the Marx Memorial Library in Clerkenwell. 6.30pm, £1.
