We took a look at some great activities for young and old in Islington this weekend, 28th August.
A bit of theatre
The Almeida Theatre is taking viewers to a labour camp in 1943, four months into the Nazi occupation of Tunisia.
Once Upon a Time in Nazi-Occupied Tunisia is a brutally comic play directed by Eleanor Rhode and written by John Azouz, exploring home, identity, marriage and survival.
£5 tickets are available for those under 25, regular tickets start at £35.

Join the Highbury Fields Parkrun for a free timed run every Sunday, for 4 to 14-year-olds.
The kids will run 2k around the park at 9am and the aim is for runners of all speeds to have fun.
Registration is required, and a coffee social at Vagabond N7 happens afterwards.
Children and adults can make, paint, and throw clay at Claytime, located near Arsenal.
The shop is open for booked courses and daytime sessions from 12.30-6pm Wednesday to Saturday.
