Austique, 330 Kings Road, London SW3 5UR.
Calling all music lovers. For an innovative take on an intimate gig why not check out Gibraltar born musician Guy Valarino in the first leg of his 'couch-surfing tour', hosted in a flat on the Fulham Road. Inspired by his first trip to London in which he tried to break into the music industry whilst living on a friend's couch, this unique event promises lots of soulful acoustic pop that speaks of life, love, sand and the sea.
Guy Valarino, 7pm Sat 12th of May. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for venue details.
Spring is most definitely here, and all that rain we've been having does have one advantage if you've got a garden. If you're pretty green-fingered you may be interested in the regular events put on by the Fulham Palace Garden Centre, in Bishops Park. On Thursday 24th May (11am - 12pm) they're hosting a 'Growing Lavender Demonstration' featuring planting tips, recipe cards and free tea and coffee for all. You're bound to learn loads and remember all profits of the centre go to the Princes Trust so you can shop afterwards in their gorgeous boutique guilt free.

Our favourite SW6 Middle Eastern haunt is offering plenty of musical delights this May with live jazz every Thursday evening. Del Aziz in Fulham Broadway (home of some of the finest tagines in SW London, I might add... reviews here and here) will be hosting musicians from across the globe including Brazilian bossa nova and jazz singer Jandira Silva on May 24th and West London based classic jazz artist Josephine Arthur on the 31st. The food at this popular Vanston Place bolthole is always superb, so for a truly cosmopolitan evening in the heart of Fulham look no further!
