Concours on Savile Row

Proving good cars and good tailoring go hand in hand, Savile Row will be pedestrianised for two days this week to host Concours, where visitors can spot rare cars, stop at exhibitions and peruse the best of suiting. The street event will showcase more than 30 world-class cars, from pre-war thoroughbreds to the latest electric cars. Make sure to look out for the exhibition of the private collection of Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones and his 1937 Lagonda LG45 Rapide, as well as Bennett Winch's showcase of David Gandy's Jaguar XK20. Tailors and galleries along the row will be open late to visitors, while a central stage will host big name speakers. Tickets are free.

Savile Row, Mayfair, W1S 3PG; 22nd-23nd May

Head To The Cinema

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

Nearly ten years after Tom Hardy’s Mad Max: Fury Road – and 40 years on from the original film – the next instalment of the Mad Max saga is finally out this week. We return to the post-apocalyptic wasteland, this time 15-20 years prior to the events of the previous film. Hollywood ‘It’ girl Anya Taylor-Joy steps into the role of renegade warrior Furiosa (previously played by Charlize Theron) to provide a backstory for the character. Elsewhere, an unrecognisable Chris Hemsworth plays the menacing warlord Dementus. Brace yourselves, Furiosa’s origin story is as relentless and fast-paced as Hardy’s outing was.
