Religion’s clothing pop-up 

The fashion brand’s pop-up in London’s Carnaby district is complete with its range of graphic t-shirts, deconstructed leather jackets and dresses, and it plays host to live DJs every Thursday to Sunday.

The outlet also offers nail art experiences at its Black Nail Parlour, meanwhile those who step inside the Model Me Selfie Photobooth could be selected by Scout Models, or be in with a chance to win £250 to spend at Carnaby’s retail outlets and restaurants.

BBC One’s Luther mural 

Head to London’s Shoreditch High Street until next Tuesday (22 December), to view BBC One's bespoke 12-metre long mural, created by Allez Studio, Diabolical and Graffitilife. The artwork is a celebration of the return of the channel's crime drama, Luther.

It depicts the iconic skyline from the Luther credits, and includes a large illustration of the show's protagonist at its centre. Steel rods protrude outwards from Luther, who is played by Idris Elba, and text that reads "Are you scared of me? You should be" surrounds him. 

On show until: 22 December
