We love...weekends

TWO unmissable nights for acid house lovers, new theatre productions, and an instrument making workshop for children, are just some of the great events happening in Hackney this weekend.

Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat at Shacklewell Arms, 2 November

Seventy-eight-year-old former Bollywood musician Charanjit Singh plays his forward thinking record Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat at one of East London's most popular gig venues. The album, made in 1982, marries traditional Indian melodies and disco to create a house offshoot. See: www.shacklewellarms.com

Neo Waltz at Chats Palace, 3 November

Famed acid house producer Adamski is trying to put the waltz into dance music - and about time too. He’s showcasing a new album that chops grime, dubstep and house to a 3/4 beat at Chats Palace. See: www.chatspalace.co.uk

You at Courtyard Theatre, until 3 November

Short listed for the Kings Cross Award for new writing, Mark Wilson’s new work at this Shoreditch theatre explores what to do when you open a letter and your past tumbles out. See: www.thecourtyard.org.uk

Instrument and music making workshop at St Ann’s Community Hall, 3 November

Young people, aged eight to 16, can learn how to make an instrument and play it. Build a 'clarinoodle', tin can xylophone or snake charmer from pipes, tennis balls and other everyday materials. The classes are led by Hackney charity London Gypsy Orchestra. See:  www.magicmusicmaking.co.uk

But I cd only whisper at Arcola Theatre, until 1 December
