It may not be a Bank Holiday Monday, but we have plenty of things to spruce up your day.

1. Meet a former SAS soldier

Chris Ryan will be in Jubilee Place Mall from 1pm signing copies of his new book Hellfire.

See our interview with him here.

Jubilee Place Mall, 1pm

2. Shop that little bit later

Canary Wharf Group have extended the shopping hours at the estate’s malls, meaning you have that little bit longer to get shopping time in after work.

Canary Wharf, 9am to 8pm

3. Grab yourself a Mexican picnic

At Poncho 8 get either a picnic for one with two mini burritos, nachos and a dip and a drink for £6.50 or a picnic for two with four mini burritos, two nachos and dip and two drinks for £12. Now let’s just pretend it won’t be raining.
