You’ve very nearly survived the working week – not to mention the Tube strike chaos – so reward yourself with a treat. We’ve scouted out three things to make you smile.

1. Play a game of ping pong

Canary Wharf workers gathered around a table in an intense huddle only means one thing – Ping’s table tennis tables have arrived. Get in on the action early and challenge your colleagues to a lunchtime tournament – first one out gets the beers in. The tables are free to use.

From 11am, Jubilee Place Mall and West Wintergarden

No Fit State

2. Watch some dazzling circus

East London’s Theatre Square outside Stratford Circus will host no Fit State Open House where acrobats, aerialists and musicians will explode from a variety of stages. Opt for stunts and workshops or take a more laid-back approach and enjoy the action, all of which is free, unfold.

6pm, Stratford

Jimmy Cliff

3. Cross many rivers

Veteran singer Jimmy Cliff will bring his worldwide sound and a catalogue that stretches over 50-years to Indigo at The O2. The performer – currently in the midst of creating vibrant new tracks – will be supported by Katchafire. Tickets cost from £23.20. Get in the mood with Many Rivers To Cross below.

From 7pm, North Greenwich
