What: Luke Edward Hall 'Hotel Majestic'

Where: Alex Eagle Studio 

When: Wednesday 23rd - 6 June

So I think I've fallen deeply for Luke Edward Hall, an artist dabbling in design, ceramics, interiors and fashion. His aesthetic is deliciously classical and maximalist, and this latest exhibition draws upon his love of Italy, inspired by a Steven Tennant biography recounting a 1920s trip with Siegfried Sassoon. Swoon.

What: The Rolling Stones ft. Florence + The Machine 

Where: London Stadium 

When: Friday 25th 

Once you've headlined Glastonbury you'd think your support slot days were over, but I guess when The Rolling Stones ask, you say yes. Gracious Flo has popped up with Jagger for a few performances, our fave being her 'Gimme Shelter' duets. Expect more of the same plus a sneak preview of the new album, followed by the Stones' first U.K. tour in five years. Not too shabby.

What: Bob Carlos Clarke, 'The Agony and The Ecstasy'

Where: The Little Black Gallery 

When: Saturday 26th 

We featured Bob Carlos Clarke in a Sunday Roundup a while back, and this Saturday is your last chance to view his photos of wild 1990s public school kids getting frisky at the disco. The exhibition is sweetly nostalgic, veering away from being too pornographic, instead emphasising the fumbling innocence of teen lust.
