Things to do this Week

February 24th, 2020 | by Tom Harrow-Smith

Things to do this Week

With five whole days to go until the weekend, don't despair. There are still loads of events and activities to see and do across South Bank from Monday to Thursday. Here's the best of what's on offer.

  • Pancake Day at Art Yard

    Who doesn't love pancake day? This Shrove Tuesday Art Yard at Bankside will be celebrating by mixing things up a bit, as you'd expect from a restaurant who like to do things a but differently.

    Throughout Pancake Day they will be serving up stacks of pancakes with a natural chill factor. Their matcha pancakes come with CBD oil, hemp and chia seeds and are all topped with natural yoghurt and a good dollop of Bankside honey.

  • Parasite

    Winner of the Palme d’Or at 2019’s Cannes Film Festival and now Best Picture and Best Director at this years Oscars, catch this brilliant black comedy from Bong Joon-ho at BFI Southbank.  

    Parasite directed by Bong Joon-ho (Okja, Snowpiercer) follows the Kim family as they struggle to survive on the breadline. When a friend offers Kim Ki-Woo the chance of a tutoring job at the lavish home of the Park family, Ki-Woo’s luck starts to change, and soon his sister, mother and father are also ingratiating themselves into the glamorous lives of their affluent employers. Parasite is both a piercing commentary on inequality and a twisty narrative rollercoaster ride; you’ll be gripped throughout this compelling and expertly-crafted gem.

    It will only be running until the 26 February at the BFI Southbank, and many previous screenings have sold out before the day, so make sure you don't miss out by booking in advance.
