London Coffee Festival, Fri 13 – Sun 16 April

The mere thought of this wakes me up in a jangly way. The only way to cope with this festival is to start the day with an espresso martini. There are over 250 artisan coffee and gourmet food stalls, tastings and demonstrations from world-class baristas, interactive workshops, street food, coffee-based cocktails, live music, DJs, art exhibitions and you’ll find yourself talking very fast when you attempt to recount your experiences of the day.

The Shell Brand Story, Museum of Brands, from Fri 13 April

Ever wondered what goes into an iconic brand? How it starts, how it adapts to stay relevant? This new exhibition also unveils Shell’s ‘Brand ID’ digital experience, where you can put essential branding principles into practice by creating and personalising your very own brand, and take away a digital souvenir. Brand new you.

Shappi Khorsandi, Mistress and Misfit, Hertford Theatre, Fri 13 April

Known for her whipcrack jokes and a huge amount of charm, Shappi Khorsandi is taking time off from her television engagements (Life At The Apollo, Have I Got News For You, Q.I.), to tour the country. She arrives in Hertford on Friday in Georgian England as Emma Hamilton, aka Nelson’s mistress. Gird your loins for an evening of razor sharp wit and irreverent entertainment. 8pm.

St Paul’s Walden Bury, Open Garden, Sun 15 April

I love this place! It was the childhood home of the late Queen Mother. It’s not often open so definitely worth visiting, although there is another Open Garden day in May so the grass may be less soggy by then. Spectacular formal woodland garden, Grade I listed. 2pm.
