A celebration of all things Ma href=””>sport and culture, Open Weekend aims to get us all into the Olympic spirit with a number and variety of events that would make a decathlete blush.

Highlights include Moon Weekend at the Greenwich Observatory (linked to the 40th anniversary of the first Apollo mission), Do Something Different Weekend at the Barbican, where you can dance, sculpt and make music, and Design & Make It Weekend at Somerset House, a DIY craft and fashion event.

There are hundreds more, big and small, to choose from and many are free. Open Weekend’s official website has the full list.
