London On The Cheap: 14-20 October

You could walk waterfront London with a Westminster Guide this Saturday or you could drop by Foyles Gallery and see our free exhibition Thames Barrier to Teddington. This picture by tubb is in it.

Skint this week? You could stay home and try and crack the latest bunch of Londonist Londony Quiz Questions from last week. Or try this frugal fun:

Tonight: Get a ticket in advance and Marthas and Arthurs live at Passing Clouds, Dalston will only set you back a fiver.

The free SUNDAY Art Fair begins today and is open till 8pm tonight. Get along to P3 on Marylebone Road for this funky, emerging talent, gallery led international art fair.

Oh, and it's SELFS time again: Christopher Josiffe: The Dalby Spook. Be there for 8pm. Still only £2.50.

Friday: There's a cheese and wine festival at the Royal Festival Hall open till 8pm and browsing is free. There are also free dance performances in the Hayward Gallery at 5.30, 7.10 and 9.30 Celebrating Trisha Brown as part of Dance Umbrella.
