Moving straight to Friday’s London-based cultural festivities, I’ll pass over to this TW London-compiled shortlist…


Cirque Du Cabaret, London Wonderground, 19 Jul
Cirque Du Soleil who? Tonight it’s all about London’s Cirque Du Cabaret, who are pitching camp at the Spiegeltent to present their very special late-night gala, a chance to marvel at CDC’s comic/circus/burlesque-based je ne sais quoi. Details and tickets¬†here.


Pop Up Screens presents… Empire Records/The Wedding Singer/Star Trek II: The Wrath Khan, Wormholt Park Shpherd’s Bush, 19-21 Jul
Watchable as individual films or as a triple-treat package, Pop Up Screens’ mixed cinema bonanza features lost Liv Tyler/Rene Zelwegger folly ‘Empire Records’, Adam Sandler in marital goof-off ‘The Wedding Singer’, and an astral sci-fi finale in Shatner et al’s 1982 original to this year’s ‘Into Darkness’ sort-of remake, ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan’. Details and tickets here.


Lovebox, Victoria Park, 19-21 Jul (pictured)
Starring elite headline acts Azealia Banks (pictured), Goldfrapp, and Plan B, this flashy London love-in has an artist to fit any niche, inviting Hurts, D’Angelo, Jurassic 5, Lil Kim and Annie Mac fly their varied genre flags like delegates at a kind of live-pop-style UN. Details and tickets here.
