Things to do in London this weekend: 27-29 March
London, like cities the world over, was plunged into unprecedented circumstances last week. Our theatres, concert halls and galleries were forced to close their doors, while our restaurants, bars, gyms and other event spaces soon followed suit to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. While we’ll continue to champion these venues in every way we can, we're now focusing on bringing you a different kind of weekend guide – one that acknowledges the fact we're social distancing and staying at home.
It’s a time for scaling back, living slow and looking after ourselves – and others – mentally as well as physically.
That said, there’s still plenty of entertainment to get stuck into this weekend – if only from your sofa. Read on for our ideas…
Lucy Yeomans, former editor-in-chief of Net-a-Porter’s fashion magazine Porter, has launched a new venture: a fashion-cum-gaming app called Drest. Pitched as ‘the world's first interactive luxury styling game', the app is a chance to put together virtual outfits from real luxury fashion pieces and also try-before-you-buy with shoppable brands like Farfetch. Players will be able to share their creations within the app, follow other stylists and even vote on their creations, cherry-picking some of the social elements of apps such as Instagram. Download it now to show off your creative flair and stay ahead of the curve.
