Don’t start hiding from the cold in the office at lunchtime or in front of Netflix at home just yet and embrace this weird but welcome September warm snap with our three ideas below.

1. Play a Joanna

The Play Me I’m Yours project aims to bring local people together and so far it seems the impromptu performances around Canary Wharf are doing just that, so join in the rare chance to hear or play pianos for free on the estate until Saturday, October 10.

Daily, various locations in Canary Wharf

2. Check out gangsters for yourself

Tom Hardy plays both Kray twins in Legend who once ran a huge criminal empire and were a key part of the history of the East End. Tickets are available from £12 at the Wharf’s Everyman Cinema.

12.50pm 3.50pm 7pm, Crossrail Place

3. Take in the rays in a stroll along the River Thames for a pint

Head to Sir Ian McKellen’s famous pub The Grapes along the Thames in Limehouse and take in the sunshine before it disappears for the winter.

Noon to 11pm, Limehouse
