Pretty Graphic

If you’re London-bound this weekend, make room in the diary for a visit to Somerset House to catch the last few days of Pick Me Up festival before it closes on the 5 May

It’s a celebration of graphic art in all its forms, with its main aim being to introducing affordable art to the masses. Peruse the galleries or swing by the studios to buy some artwork to call your own, Pick Me Up has everything from fashion, architecture, comics and album art covered.  

Whatever you do, don’t miss the interactive paper sculpture by Mandy & Hal, 11am-5pm on Monday 5 May, where you can take a turn on the paper guillotine without so much as a paper cut. 

Open daily 10:00-18:00 until 5 May, Embankment Galleries, South Wing, Somerset House, day tickets £10
