Things to do this weekend in London: October 14 – 16

It's that lovely time again, so roll up your sleeves and get down to some serious weekend planning


Mark her words

To mark her new book Get A Life: The Diaries of Vivienne Westwood, which celebrates her rather marvellous career (and it is so worth celebrating), the designer will be interviewed by journalist Deborah Orr. It will no doubt be as colourful as Westwood herself. 14 Oct; £12 (ticket only), £25 (with book); St James’s Church, 197 Piccadilly, W1J


To the kerb

Street food genii Kerb have turned four years old (which makes us feel old in turn) and they’re having a birthday bash. Delights on the menu include mac n’ cheese fries and baked Alaska with marshmallow sauce, plus special cocktails and top music from Pig & Rig. 14 Oct; £4 entry; Kings Cross, West Handyside Canopy N1C


Devilish work

Ooh, a literary festival with an age restriction. The Killer Women Festival (clue is in the name, really) is for over 18s only, and you’ll hear from some of the finest crime writers around in workshops and discussions from the likes of Martina Cole, Val McDermid and Paula Hawkins. 15 Oct; £75; Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, EC1V


Going cocoa

If you’re going to eat loads of chocolate, you might as well do it in some style. For one day only, Chelsea’s lovely Partridges food store are hosting a whole fair full of the sweet stuff, and it’s running alongside the usual Fine Food Market if you need a bit of savoury to balance things out. 15 Oct; free; Duke of York Square, London SW3


Move it

Saturday night’s alright for fighting, but Thursday is all about the Disco Yoga. Yes, it’s a real thing, which sounds utterly fantastic. It is what it says – flow-style moves to a sparkly upbeat soundtrack – and you get a themed cock-or-mocktail afterwards. Various dates from 13 Oct; from £15; 89 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3HX
