Frieze Art Fair
I can hardly leave out Frieze (friezeartfair.com) - on until Sunday in Regent's Park, there are over 170 galleries, and thousands of pieces of art for sale (1,532 actually). If money isn't burning a hole in your pocket, it's just a good excuse to see a LOT of art. Don't miss the sculpture park outside either. For a virtual tour before you go, have a look here (virtual.friezeartfair.com)

angel wings for candles. £5.50
Let us know when you have a new address, Caravan!
