David Bailey: Vision and Sound at 45 Park Lane Hotel

David Bailey has a new solo exhibition at 45 Park Lane Hotel. Widely regarded as one of the 20th century’s most important photographers, he got to the top taking candid shots of pop culture icons. Visitors can get up close with portraits of legendary musicians which trace key moments from jazz and early rock ’n’ roll to punk, Britpop and hip hop over the past six decades – including the Rolling Stones, Kate Bush, Oasis, Bob Marley and David Bowie. Look out for shots of rapper and producer Dr Dre as well as early portraits of Paul McCartney.

Macellaio Butchery Masterclass

Italian restaurant group Macellaio RC has created a butchery masterclass at its Southwark site for those who want to sharpen their skills in the kitchen. During the three-hour session, Macellaio’s head butcher will give guests an intro to ‘metodo costa’ – its in-house dry ageing process which enhances the meat’s flavour. You’ll also learn about the farm-to-table process, how to choose the best cuts of beef, and what to ask when you buy from your local butchers. After the class, guests can tuck into a three-course meal at the restaurant. Tickets cost £95.

Miznon Breakfast Pitta

Israeli restaurant Miznon – meaning ‘kiosk’ in Hebrew – first opened in Tel Aviv in 2011 and has since expanded with sites around the world. Headed up by celebrity chef Eyal Shani, the group opened its first London outpost in Soho last month, bringing its modern Israeli food to the capital. On Friday 7th October, the restaurant will launch its all-day breakfast pitta for takeaways. Available on the first Friday of every month from 9 to 11am, it’s a fluffy pitta filled with minute steak, lima beans, a fried egg and a spicy tomato sauce. A tidy hangover cure.

Paterson Joseph At The British Library

Paterson Joseph is one of the UK’s most esteemed Black actors, having appeared in several Royal Shakespeare Company productions and TV series like Peep Show, Noughts + Crosses, and Vigil. To mark Black History Month, Joseph will discuss his debut novel The Extraordinary Life of Charles Ignatius Sancho at the British Library on Friday 14th October at 7pm – and tickets have just gone one sale. The book is a fictional story of Charles Ignatius Sancho: an 18th-century writer, abolitionist and composer who was sold into slavery before escaping and developing a career as a businessman – becoming the first Black person to vote in Britain and leading the fight to end slavery. If you can’t make it in person, the talk will be livestreamed on the British Library platform. Tickets cost £11.
