24 Flights Up by D I C K S D A I L Y

Tonight: If you haven't yet done it, plan your Open House Weekend itinerary. If you're doing Maggie's London 20 Night Hike on Friday, stay home and put your feet up. Stay up late. Carb load.

Friday: Handle With Care is a night about nursing at Wellcome Collection. Free, no booking required, 7-11pm.

Watch the Bourne Ultimatum at More London's Scoop, free, 7.30pm (wrap up warm!)

Fancy a boundary crossing live art happening? The Others in Stoke Newington is where you need to be for 8pm for the Other Variety Box. Physical performance acts, music, contemporary dance, film and spoken word and more for £5.

The London 20 Night Hike sets off from Guildhall from 8pm onwards, covering 20 miles via Victoria, Kensington, Hammersmith and back. Cheers us on! Even better, sponsor us please.

Saturday: Go nuts. It's Open House Weekend.

The Anti-Design Festival starts today if you can make sense of the programme as does its antithesis, the Design Festival.

You know it's autumn when the Harvest Festivals start. Up Enfield way it's City Harvest Festival at Capel Manor College while Tooting's having a Harvest Foodival, seeking donations of food all weekend.

Sunday is the day the Photographers' Gallery closes its Ramillies Street location for a year's worth of refurb works. Drop by this afternoon between 2-4pm and help them make a massive outdoor collage! Oh, and check out the exhibition.

Bermondsey Street Festival runs 11am till 5.30pm on the street and 10am - late on Bermondsey Square. There's maypole dancing, a farmers market and dog show in the park plus film and music - which would not feel right without a turn by local bard, Nigel of Bermondsey.

Get in on a bit of free London Fashion Week action at the Fashion Fete in Covent Garden.

The first Hackney Film Festival opens at the Dalston Rio with an evening of eclectic work by Hackney based film makers. From 3.45pm, £5.

Sunday: More Open House? Oh go on then.

Join the friendly free photowalk along the Thames at Teddington in preparation for our photography project.

Otherwise, it's the annual Funday on Stoke Newington Common with jam between 1-5pm.

Monday: The Fashion Bus will park up outside the Design Museum at Shad Thames containing a special Boutique as part of the Untold Season, 1-8pm.

Remember this? Matt Thompson's resultant exhibition is up for one night only at 5 Great Queen Street, WC2 between 7.30-10pm. RSVP
