Dad's Army, the unnecessary remake?

Wonder at the wisdom of remaking Dads Army at Cineworld and watch Jason Derulo perform at The O2

1 Take in a remake

Pointless? Certainly. Are Toby Jones and Bill Nighy stupid boys for getting involved? Probably. Curious? Perhaps. And that might be reason enough to pop over the dock for a look as a modern cast attempt to shoulder the dusty mantle of charm woven by the endlessly repeated Perry and Croft original.

8.45pm, Friday, February 5, £10.77, Cineworld

2 Watch Jason throw some shapes

With a songwriting career that began at the age of eight, Jason Derulo’s been around a bit.Those in the audience for his forthcoming gig at The O2 can expect to hear the likes of Wiggle, Talk Dirty, In My Heart and Whatcha Say alongside material from most recent album Everything Is 4.

Suck up the sounds of singer songwriter Sarah Gillespie

Groove to Sarah Gillespie at The Albany, mourn the Eagles at Boisdale of Canary Wharf and watch the Super Bowl

1 Listen to some fresh tunes

Anglo-American singer songwriter Gillespie performs in Deptford with a full band, to debut a mix of songs from a recent project (due for release in 2016) as well as revisiting her back catalogue. Expect a melange of jazz, folk and blues tracks overlaid with “poetic lyricism”, apparently.

7.30pm, Saturday, February 6, from £10, The Albany

2 Mourn a fallen Eagle

It hardly seems any time at all since the death of Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey. Those missing him can at least hear his music in Canary Wharf when the Alter Eagles play the likes of Hotel California and One Of Those Nights at Boisdale.

9.45pm, Saturday, February 6, from £15, Boisdale of Canary Wharf

3 All the sporting action

4pm, Tuesday, February 9, £14.50, Everyman Canary Wharf
