This stylish white cube space has been on Prince Of Wales Road forever (well a good couple of decades anyway) and is showing one last exhibition of prints, paintings and drawings by artist Rebecca Salter (starts April 27) before they sadly have to move out in June. “It’s a real wrench,” says founder Amanda Beardsmore. “We’re currently looking at all our options but for the time being will be operating from home.” Visit the gallery, open daily until 5pm, at 22-24 Prince of Wales Road NW5 3LG

A “boundary-busting artist-led collective” is set to take over a new art space in Camden, intriguingly called the JakBox Studio. The baby of artist Simon Williams, whose recent work includes a public art commission from Camden Council (Points of View, Cobden Junction), the JakBox Presents exhibitions will showcase work including the Pavement Series, offering fresh perspectives on overlooked environments. Free. Info here. 22nd April – 6th May. Tues – Sat 10am – 5pm, 12-13 Pratt Mews NW1

Performances all weekend. Photo: PR

Love to lap up all things immersive? Fox and Chips productions’ latest is an interactive interpretation of Chekhov’s classic play The Seagull, relocated to 1960s. Audiences are permitted to walk, interact with the actors and order food and drinks from the bar. Sounds kinda interesting, especially given the dark subject matter of the play. Tickets here. Next shows are 24th, 25th and 26th April at The Pack & Carriage, 162 Eversholt Street, NW1

PRIMROSE HILL: Mooch round the market

Now it’s spring (well, kind of) surely a stroll to a newish farmer’s market is something to consider on a quiet Saturday. Primrose Hill Market started last autumn and they reckon 1500 customers a week rush to buy produce from their 45 farmers, producers and emerging start-ups. And there’s always one of the best views in London on hand too. 10am-3pm Saturdays, St Paul’s School, NW3 3DS

One of a stellar line-up at Casa Tua King’s Cross: Kate Moss. Photo: Mike Owen

Kate Moss, Annie Lennox, Kylie, Joan Collins, Rupert Everett and a mahoosive portrait of Tilda Swinton are all on show as part of a fascinating retrospective by celebrity photographer Mike Owen at new two-floor gallery and cafe Casa Tua (yup, it’s the much bigger new sister branch of the tiny, much-loved Camden Road original). Find it in the backstreets south of King’s Cross station; after you’ve checked out the exhibition, lounge with a coffee alfresco on the terrace overlooking the church. It’s a pretty spot. Runs until May 13th, Free entry. Casa Tua open daily until 6pm, 106 Cromer Street WC1
