London is the home of men’s fashion. As well as enjoying over 400 years of expert tailoring on Savile Row , a glut of emerging designers will be showing their wares at this month’s London Collections: Men (LC:M), the London fashion week for menswear.

As the world’s sharpest dressed men descend on the capital for LC:M next week, we’ve threaded together a few fashion-related events to enjoy.

What’s On This Weekend: 25-26 January Mon, 20 Jan 2014 10:00:50 +0000

January is a month for reasserting balance; what other reason would there be to make those pesky resolutions? In this vein we have a set of events taking place across the capital this weekend which are all about balance (or boom and bust, you be the judge). So indulge in some delicious street food at Hawker House before embarking on a nice long winter walk, and then take in some culture at The Photographer’s Gallery before laughing it off at the London Comedy Film Festival.

Feast yourself at Hawker House

Street Feast London knows how to throw a good party and has set up shop indoors (thankfully) at Hawker House for the next nine weekends (it opened last weekend). There are bars, a DJ and a selection of London’s best street food sellers. Sample everything from NYC style burgers and wood fired pizzas, to rabbit fusilli and 10-hour chipotle short rib tacos. Free before 7pm, £3 after. Open from 5pm-midnight. 17 Jan-22 Mar

Take a winter wander

Walk London, a TfL project, has organized 30 free guided “Winter Wanders” across seven top walking routes throughout the capital. All walks are designed to take in the best sights, parks, woodland, rivers, canals and open spaces London has to offer. There are nearly 40 different free walks organised over this weekend, varying from 1.5 to eight miles and taking in all corners of the city. 25-26 January

Warhol, Lynch and Burroughs

The Photographers’ Gallery is hosting three exhibitions from iconic Americans not necessarily famed for their photography. Andy Warhol: Photographs 1976-1987 displays a wide oeuvre of the artist’s photography. David Lynch: The Factory Photographs delves into the idiosyncratic filmmaker’s obsession with machinery. Finally, Taking Shots: The Photography of William S Burroughs displays photographic work by the beat author and poet. All three exhibitions are free. 17 Jan-30 Mar

A Barrel of Laughs at the LOCO Film Festival

There is a whole programme of comedy screenings and events being held across the capital this weekend as part of the LOCO London Comedy Film Festival. There are free and ticketed events across the festival, with all sorts of comedy, ranging from classics to world premieres and from black and white to animation, there is something to tickle every funny bone. 23-26 Jan

One Man and His Camera

Friday is your last chance to catch the one-man crime thriller Bloodshot at the St James’ Theatre. Set in 1957, Derek is a down on his luck photographer offered a one-off and lucrative deal to take pictures of an elegant woman in the London park he can’t resist.

Photographers’ Gallery to Close for Major Redevelopment Tue, 07 Sep 2010 11:48:48 +0000 Artist's impression of the redeveloped Photographers' Gallery, due to open in 2011 Artist's impression of the redeveloped Photographers' Gallery, due to open in 2011 Artist's impression of the top floor gallery at the redeveloped Photographers' Gallery, due to open in 2011

London’s Photographers’ Gallery will close on 19 September for major redevelopment. When the gallery reopens in late 2011 it will boast three floors of gallery space, a ground floor café, a bigger bookshop, better accessibility and a whole floor dedicated to learning.

“We’re bursting at the seams,” said the gallery’s director Brett Rogers. “With the Sally Mann show, we’ve been getting eight to 10 thousand visitors a week.”

The new gallery will have room for larger scale works and more exhibitions.  It will also respond to the changing landscape of photography, with a digital wall where members of the public can upload their own photos.

During the closure, look out for pop-up Photographers’ Gallery exhibitions around London:

The gallery’s lecture series will also continue at various London venues, including a series of “photography socials” at Soho pubs and bars.
