How to fill your time this weekend in London

Sarah Cohen, Going Out Editor for the Evening Standard, discusses what to do in the capital this weekend.
Sarah waxes lyrical about Oscar nominated “Whiplash”, which she describes as “so exciting” and “breathless”. It follows the story of a jazz drummer having his nerves being worn to breaking point by a tyrannical tutor. Sarah says that while the premise might not set pulses racing, the incessant rounding rhythm of the film definitely will. 

She also explains why the London International Mime Festival is far more than men with painted faces pretending to be stuck in a box, describing the dark humour that runs through many of shows running.
For those who are persevering with dry January, or anyone who just fancies taking it a little easy, Sarah’s recommendation is Redemption, an alcohol-free bar. Sarah says the range of drinks go far beyond the token Virgin Mojito offered in most places and is well worth a visit.

Sarah also reminds Wake Up London that it’s the last chance to see the Late Turner exhibition at the Tate Britain and also God’s Own Junkyard at Light of Soho.
