3 to see: The Fields N7, all-new Camden People’s Theatre & Zabludowicz

Tufnell Park's new green-grocers, NW1's revamped playhouse and three exhibitions in one on Prince Of Wales Road

THEATRE: Camden People’s is back

Following its reopening this autumn, the pioneering Hampstead Road playhouse has a whole season of ambitious performances, underlining its ethos of championing boundary-pushing new work. Major events include the premiere of Matty May and Daisy Hale’s If you love me, this might hurt, a solo show from a queer working-class perspective (ends tomorrow, 30th Oct). Elsewhere, highlights include The Untethered Joke, a work-in-progress new collaboration between Hannah Ringham and Sue MacLaine (16th-18th Nov); and Tom Ryalls’ Education, Education, Karaoke (23rd – 27th Nov) which tears into the inequalities rife in state education via pop songs and a karaoke machine. Peruse the full line-up here. Follow @camdenpeoplestheatre

SHOPPING: The Fields N7

Tufnell Park-dwellers might have seen a new indie farm shop open up at 10 Campdale Road, just across from the well-used playing fields. Owners Alex Goodman and Deirdre McGinnis Lopez are two local mums whose sons play football there every Saturday morning; it was during lockdown that they concocted their plan to open up a plant-focused store opposite. There’s quality and sustainable produce including fruit, veg, flowers, plants, preserves, condiments and grains, with zero single-use plastic and zero waste. Swing by too for hot filter coffee, tea and fresh juices. Follow @thefieldsn7 for more.

GALLERY: Zabludowicz is back

The huge Prince of Wales space boasts three unmissable shows this autumn: Exhibitions 360: Chiara Passa is an interactive virtual reality experience (we’re enjoying VR alot right now); meanwhile in the Invites gallery is To Vent, the first solo show by Robert Cervera, who works across sculpture, video and music. Finally, in the main room is The Stand-Ins: Figurative Painting from the Collection (main pic, above) which brings together 19 multi-generational artists and a cast of imagined characters. All three end on the 19th December, with a raft of family-friendly workshops and one-off events to peruse in between. Open Thurs-Sun, 12-6pm. Follow @zabludowicz_collection for more.
