What's On In London This Weekend? 18-10 June

Celebrating the launch of the Mazda Thrillseekers campaign.

What are you up to this weekend? Try our judicious picks for 48 hours of London weekend leisure time.

Friday night: French public radio station France Inter moves into Koko from 7pm with an incredible 18 hours of live broadcast. "The most European of Belgian singers", Arno will also be giving a free concert of "rock, emotion and madness..." Even more incredibly, entry is free. Email koko@radiofrance.com ASAP for your ticket.

Saturday: Whenever you get your act together this morning you can wander down to the Greek Beach on the Thames to watch some beach soccer, sand sculpting and greek dancing and sample some Rhodian food for a most Mediterranean lunch. @ South Bank Riverside walkway by Gabriel's Wharf. London SE1 9PP, 10am-7pm.

"If you don't like drinking, dancing, loud music and shouting, don't come" say the Underground Rebel Bingo Club back in London disguised as a residents' association meeting at an undisclosed location. If you want to party hard, play hardcore bingo, win stuff, draw on your friends and listen to loud music, 'like' the Facebook page now be accepted into the dark rituals of secret bingo.

Sunday: It's Father's Day. Would your Dad like to watch a giant ice sculpture melt in Covent Garden Piazza? Time it right and you could pick up some damp and cold prizes from the sodden remains. Plenty else going on round there as part of a weekend-long street party and foodie market celebrating 180 years of Covent Garden.

Take the old man to the National Gallery for one of the London Festival of Architecture talks or to tick off the 30 "must see" paintings. Then have lunch at the National Cafe with a couple of friends and Dad eats free.

Does your Dad remember the 60s? Head for Highgate and the retro themed Barbequtie at the Boogaloo for live music sets and DJs spinning wacky 60s sets, vintage clothes, jewellery stalls and salsa snacks in the courtyard. Entry £3 starting 3pm-5pm but it could go on long into the night, melding into "The Rabbi's birthday party (the man famous for being the 5th member of The Libertines) at the pub later that night.

Don't blame us if you're late for work on Monday.
