The Carriage Club

Tickets have just gone on sale for a new immersive experience aboard a British Pullman train. Courtesy of Private Drama Events, guests will be welcomed onto the train for a glamorous evening of entertainment and fine dining. A great excuse to get dressed up, you’ll arrive at the British Pullman Lounge at Victoria station for a glass of fizz before boarding. Once your hosts have settled you into one of the luxury train carriages, you’ll be served a five-course meal with paired wines and champagnes – all while various acts keep you entertained. You’ll meet cabaret singers, dancers, magicians and even a tarot card reader who will transport you back to the glamour of the 1930s as you travel through the British countryside. The first dinner will take place on Friday 31st May. Tickets start from £545pp.

Unravel Exhibition: The Power & Politics of Textiles in Art

Textiles are often underestimated as an artistic medium, but the Barbican’s new exhibition is determined to change that. More than 50 artists have joined forces for the show to explore power, resistance and survival through textiles. From British names like Tracey Emin to Malawian Billie Zangewa, the featured artists span the generations and the world. Tickets start from £18.

Barbican Centre, Silk Street, Barbican, EC2Y 8DS; until 26th May

The Taste Of Things

This new release from French-Vietnamese director, Tran Anh Hung, is set entirely in the kitchen, dining room and grounds of the country chateau of the legendary gourmet chef, Dodin, in 1880s France. It was France’s submission for this year’s international Oscar category and it's not hard to see why; the slow-burn later-in-life love narrative is underpinned by artful cinematography.

Appropriately enough, the pop-up space has also been transformed into a cloud-like accessories heaven.

Barbara Kruger: Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You.

The Serpentine is known for its edgy and contemporary art shows, making American artist Barbara Kruger a great fit for its latest exhibition. Considering gender, class and consumerism, and consistently challenging the powers-that-be since the 1970s, her work is graphic, cool and has been presented on billboards, buildings and buses the world over. On display this time is her iconic ‘I shop therefore I am’ print, as well as newer pieces where she combines text, audios and memes. Entry is free.

Sargent + Fashion

Opening this week at Tate Britain is a fashion-led exhibit of the art of American artist, John Singer Sargent. Through his work, he used fashion to portray the personality and identity of his sitters, which now gives modern-day viewers an insight into the Edwardian-era luxury style of the time. The pieces range from dramatic to playful – the perfect place to lose a few hours on Saturday afternoon.

Millbank, Pimilico, SW1P 4RG; until 7th July
