Ian Patterson from All About Jazz described Peter Jones as: "In a lineage somewhere between Frank Sinatra and Kurt Elling."

The Peter Jones Duo will be playing on Sunday, starting from 1:30pm.

Blind Tiger is back in Teddington with another pop-up night at local café, The Fallow Deer.

Since starting in January this year, Blind Tiger has taken its diners to Indonesia, Korea, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, and Taiwan.

This weekend will take diners to Afghanistan, with dishes like mantu dumplings, various rice dishes, and for dessert, an Afghan custard known as firni.

One diner at the pop-up's recent Taiwan night said: "[It's] impossibly exciting coming to something that is here right now and gone tomorrow."

Pick-up and dine-in options are both available at The Fallow Deer, 130 High Street, Teddington. Dishes must be preordered by 7pm on Friday, 21 June.

Any bookings made on Friday 21 June between 6pm and 9pm will be offered a complimentary tasting from a selection of the winemaker's award-winning Italian wines.

Shambles says customers are able to get as involved as they would like with the tasting, adding: "It's an informal tasting with friendly people, sharing their skills and love for 'Classic Method' wines".

Diners must order from the restaurant's seasonal main menu to be eligible. Please contact Shambles for more information.

Try your hand at the ancient art of rag rug making this weekend.

Using recycled fabrics, hessian and a wonderful 'rag rugger', learn the skills needed to create your own rug, cushion or wall hanging. 

Attendees are welcome to use the materials provided, or bring their own – even old clothes work, with t-shirts being very well-suited.

The workshop runs from 10:15am to 1:15pm. Tickets cost £45.
