This weekend's bank holiday gives us the chance to spend a little more time roaming the city and enjoying the summer's exhibitions in the cool galleries. Make sure you use this long weekend to catch the Picasso exhibition, a showcase of the artist's work in 1932, and The Mastaba at Hyde Park.

TUC London's Congress House was opened in 1958 commemorating union members who died in the world wars.

Since each and every artwork in this exhibition is for immediate sale, and to be taken 'Off the Wall' to be replaced by another work, the show has already changed since its opening just under a fortnight ago. The affordable pieces at this show start at just £40, and the staff on hand are overwhelmingly knowledgeable and helpful; this is a great opportunity to start or add to your art collection.
