Many of us will be daydreaming at our desks this Tuesday as we reminisce about the bank holiday weekend that has yet again gone in the blink of an eye. But thanks to the major mental boost this weather has been providing, there is room for optimism.
Whether you’re looking to learn something new, relax in a new way, or simply start getting fit for summer, it’s always a good idea to make time for yourself. Here’s some our favourite experiences to help ease you back into your routine:

Funzing Talks | The Theory of Everything
WHEN: 10th May | WHERE: Shoreditch | PRICE: £12
The search for the ultimate theory of physics is the greatest prize in science. Describing everything from what goes on inside black holes to the moment the universe began, it would represent the final triumph of the human mind over the mysteries of nature. Or so the argument goes.
For almost a hundred years physicists have spent entire careers attempting to crack this ultimate problem. Einstein spent the last two decades of his life chasing the dream of a final theory, Stephen Hawking went looking for it before concluding it didn’t exist.
If the Theory of Everything is ever found, then two seemingly incompatible descriptions of the universe will have to be brought together: Einstein’s theory of gravity, the General Theory of Relativity, and quantum field theory, the theory of the micro-scale.

Pirates and Prostitutes – The Dark Side of Docklands
WHEN: 1st June | WHERE: Brunel Museum | PRICE: £22
Explore the darker side of London’s historic docklands on a scenic guided walk, stopping off at peculiar pubs and encountering live re-enactments at unexpected intervals.
Look out for Pirates returning home from pillaging ships, and the prostitutes who plied their trade in the dirtiest, dingiest alcoves of the Thames tunnel, which was once a proud feat of Victorian engineering.
We’ll also stop in four historic pubs for a quick jar along the way, from the last mooring of the Mayflower which met a rotten end after it’s famous voyage to the New World, to the pub that offered a view of public executions while you nursed an ale.
Learn about how Britain’s colonial heritage shaped the docklands and hear Winston Churchill pontificate on our naval history.
Through a combination of storytelling, theatrical re-enactments, humour and booze, Pirates and Prostitutes brings history to life in dramatic and startling ways!
