The Week Ahead – April 4

WATCH: The Island with Bear Grylls. Despite not actually being with Bear Grylls (he drives a boat sometimes and does a VERY intense commentary), The Island is actually a cracking show. It may not be for the faint hearted, with last week’s episode containing more swears than any other TV show ever, probably, but if you can hack watching a group of people try and survive on a god-forsaken rock that’s more in the middle of nowhere than the Fair Isle, guess what! This is for you. Plus it will make the worst sofa ever feel more luxurious than you could have ever imagined.
Watch it on Channel 4.

SEE: Eddie The Eagle. Taron Egerton’s underdog ski-jumper is beautifully coached into our cinemas by onscreen mentor Hugh Jackman in this feel good epic. With a Cool Runnings theme and nostalgia heavy chops, the Kingsman and Wolverine stars have pulled out all the stop for what some random YouTube commenters are hailing “the greatest inspiring sports film of all time”
Watch the trailer here.

ADMIRE: 2016 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition. Hosted at Somerset House, this fantastic photographic display shows off the greatest and the best of this year’s picture perfect art. Tickets start at just £6.50 for the 22nd April onwards, and it’s well worth a visit.
Buy tickets on YPlan here.

ABSORB: The End of Longing. See Matthew Perry in the play that meant he couldn’t be a part of that Friends reunion recently as everyone’s favourite sarcastic moper finds a new lease of life in this slick comedy.

LISTEN: Everything You’ve Come To Expect. The Last Shadow Puppets long-awaited second album has finally been released, after a somewhat gruelling marketing campaign that’s brought Alex Turner and Miles Kane’s musical lovechild firmly out of the crevice it’s been hiding in. The eight years since 2008’s The Age of Understatement have been long and hard and have actually brought lots of things that we didn’t expect, in case you were wondering.
Find out more and get the album here.

EAT: Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience. Old School Fawlty Towers fans (‘u’ in title intentional, honest) can have Basil, Manuel and Sybil serve them a tasty slice of comedy along with their dinner, if that tickles your pickle. Live every cracking joke through a starter, main and dessert and immerse yourself in what some would call a simpler time!

TRY: Screen Printing. Head over to this awesome screen-printing workshop held in Shoreditch’s Boxpark for an awesome mid-week creative brainstormer. Let loose and make a mess – for more ideas check out this post.
