This Week 13-19 November

13 November 2017 Katie Da Cunha Lewin

Dancing, ceramics and leaves: what have these all got in common? They are all in our round-up of the best weird and wonderful things to do in London this week!

The Black Cat Cabaret
 
If you are looking for some entertainment coming up to Christmas, but want something a little more unique, then the performers of the Black Cat Cabaret might be just what you are looking for. From showgirls to magicians, aerial performers to musicians, this cabaret brings the spirit of the belle époque to a specially constructed spiegeltent in Leicester Square.
 
The Black Cat Cabaret is performing at Christmas in Leicester Square from 11 November until 31 December. Tickets from £24.

Ceramics 274
 
Ceramics 274 are a collective of ten London potters. Together, they’ve set up a pop-up shop in East London filled with their amazing ceramic creations.  Each seller has their own distinct look and design, creating vases, bowls and even citrus squeezers. A visit to this little shop will be a great way to support up-and-coming artists and designers.
 
Ceramics 274 is at 274 Hackney road from 14 November 2017 – 7 January 2018.

Transubstantiation at Skip Gallery
 
Gavin Turk’s upcoming installation in collaboration with Skip Gallery entitled Transubstantiation, launches on 16 November.  Gavin Turk is known for his quirky sculptural works, and here is no exception; playing on the cliché that ‘modern art is a load of rubbish’ this new work, made of bin bags in a skip, explores what we designate as modern art.   
 
Gavin Turk’s Transubstantiation is at the Skip Gallery in Hoxton from 16 November. Free.

Maritime Music Festival – Museum of London Docklands
 
There is so much history to the waterways of London; this weekend, the Museum of London celebrates a certain part of that history, namely the music.  There’ll be performances of sea shanties throughout the day, as well as traditional clog dancing. There is also a tour around the museum accompanied by song and workshops on singing some songs yourself.
 
Maritime Music Festival is at the Museum of London in Docklands on 8-19 November. Free.
