Looking for things to do this weekend? Look no further – from pop-ups and special menus to a make-up masterclass from one of our favourite artists, our weekend guide has options for everyone.


Rites Pop-Up, London Fields

Rental and resale platform Rites has opened its first pop-up at Broadway Market in London Fields. Until January, shoppers can browse a selection of clothes and accessories from some of our favourite brands at up to 80% OFF, including Faithfull the Brand, Stine Goya and Rixo, plus vintage pieces from Gucci, Miu Miu and Balenciaga. Through the brand’s ‘relove’ service, you can rent an outfit – ideal for autumn weddings and events – or buy it for a fraction of the RRP. Book a shopping appointment to find something special or take your own preloved items into the store to pass them on. Over the coming months, the pop-up will also host a series of events, as well as stalls from other sustainable brands like Croco Studio flowers and Sustainable Department Store, the latter of which specialises in organic beauty, conscious fashion and ethical homeware.
