GALLERY >> Here's What To Do This Weekend

1. CHECK OUT VENUS IN FURS

Following Carnage, Roman Polanski adapts another sparsely populated stage play for the screen, this time a two-hander about a feisty actress (the director’s own wife Emmanuelle Seigner) crashing an audition and taking the self-regarding director (Mathieu Amalric) by surprise. Stagey, talky, but a lot of fun.

In cinemas from Friday 

2. SEE EDGE OF TOMORROW

Want to see Tom Cruise killed again and again? In this bonkers-sounding, entertaining Doug Liman film, he’s a cowardly publicist forced to take on invading aliens. Death merely reboots his day, as he teams up with Emily Blunt and locates his inner hero.

In cinemas now

3. BUY TICKETS FOR LOVE BRUNCH

Legendary daytime knees-up Love Brunch returns to London’s Kensington Roof Gardens this summer. There’ll be food, cocktails, dancing and music – and you’ll be done in time to get home to watch Britain’s Got Talent.

Saturday, and throughout the summer; [a target="_blank" href="http://www.welovebrunch.com/">welovebrunch.com[/a]

4. TAKE A TRIP TO JIMMY’S HALL

Ken Loach once again combines themes of humanity and political engagement via Cannes competitor Jimmy’s Hall, set in rural Ireland in 1932. The tale of a community battling the ‘pastors and masters’ to keep their sinful dance hall open may be a tad didactic, but it’s nicely done.

In cinemas from Friday

5. DOWNLOAD ROBYN AND ROYKSOPP’S DO IT AGAIN

Want a recipe for pop heaven? Try Norwegian electro duo Röyksopp and Swedish pop whizz Robyn teaming up to form a Scandinavian supergroup. Do It Again – the album’s title track – will be the sound of your summer.

6. LISTEN TO KLAXONS’ LOVE FREQUENCY

Four years and a wedding to Keira Knightley on from their last album, the ‘new-rave’ pioneers still want to get everyone dancing – and with tracks like There Is No Other Time, they’ve given us the perfect soundtrack.

Out now

7. SEE ADVANCED STYLE ON DVD

For years, Ari Seth Cohen’s blog, Advanced Style, has captured New York’s most glamorous older women. Now this inspiring documentary follows seven women whose passion for fashion – and life – has only grown with age.

8. GET SOME WRITING TIPS

Calling all aspiring novelists! Grazia and the Baileys Women’s Prize For Fiction have teamed up for a special event at London’s Southbank Centre, offering writing advice from some of the best names in the business, including Sarah Waters, Kate Mosse, Charlotte Mendelson, Emma Healey and Felicity Blunt.

9. BOOK IN FOR HOTEL

Polly Stenham makes her debut at the National with her fourth play, Hotel, set on a desert island, on which a looming storm threatens an idyllic family holiday. It promises to be one of the hottest tickets this year – and she’s still only 27!

Until 2 August; [a target="_blank" href="http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/">nationaltheatre.org.uk[/a]

10. BOOK A TABLE AT FERA

Gordon Ramsay hung up his chef’s whites at Claridge’s last year, and now his former restaurant has reopened as the new venture by L’Enclume chef Simon Rogan. Its name, Fera – Latin for ‘wild’ – refl ects both the menu of seasonal ingredients and the setting, which includes a ‘wild meadow’ outside.

Last weekend we were wrapped up in Wedding Mania thanks to Kim Kardashian tying the knot with Kanye West and Poppy Delevingne heading to Morocco for her bridal rave, so what to do this weekend? Well, we've got a few ideas in the gallery above. Whether you want to take a trip to the theatre to watch Roman Polanski's stage adaption of Venus In Furs, listen to some Norwegian electro heaven or book a table at the reopening of Gordon Ramsay's former restaurant at Claridge’s, we've got something for everyone...
