From music festivals to shopping events, here’s our round-up of what’s hot and happening in London this weekend.

Portrait of a Lady

See intimate and iconic photographs of one of the great stars of Hollywood at Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon at the National Portrait Gallery. Charting her rise to fame, the exhibition features work by top photographers, including Cecil Beaton and Norman Parkinson, alongside previously unseen family photos. 2 Jul-18 Oct

Laugh a Minute

See comedy actor Stephen Merchant making his West End debut in The Mentalists, the latest offering from One Man, Two Guvnors playwright Richard Bean. Merchant will perform opposite Gavin and Stacey’s Steffan Rhodri in this wickedly funny two-hander at the Wyndham’s Theatre. Merchant plays Ted, a fanatical man who tapes a utopian message to the world while holed up in a London hotel room, and Rodri plays Morrie, a wild fantasist who doubles up as Ted’s cameraman. 3 Jul-26 Sep.
