On the agenda: A Positive View charity photo exhibition; Pizza East; Linda Farrow sunglasses; Classical Comics; London's Affordable Art Fair

Photography

It has been 10 years since A Positive View ran its last charity photo exhibition, but it's been worth the wait: 130 signed works are set to go on show at London's Somerset House, with vintage photography from the likes of Magnum's Elliot Erwitt sitting alongside contemporary works by artists such as film-maker Wim Wenders and a suite of pieces by photographers from South-east Asia and West Africa – all juxtaposed against a series of images by homeless photographers taking part in Crisis's Skylight education project. All profits from a subsequent Christie's auction of many of the works will go to the homeless charity. Wednesday to 6 April, apositiveview.com

Music

It's not unusual for job titles to be jazzed up in local-advertising listings. But one vacancy that couldn't be clearer is that of "Full-time Globe-trotting Festival Guide", paying £30,000 for a half-year of hotfooting it to 30 of the world's best-known music festivals, from Creamfields in Buenos Aires to Bestival on the Isle of Wight, and blogging about them. While some might be put off by the employer – the chewing-gum brand Trident, as part of its publicity for its Long Lasting Gum – job satisfaction should still be pretty high. tridentgum.co.uk

Food

We've all eaten last night's cold, congealed take-out as a hangover cure, but there's something new in the world of thin'n'crispy. The excellent Pizza East, in London's Shoreditch is now open for breakfast, featuring "rollys", a pizza-style wrap with such stuffings as sausage, pancetta, mozzarella and egg. It's worth heading east from 7.30am tomorrow, as the restaurant is handing out freebies (until Wednesday) to get us in the mood. And you don't have to have a sore head to enjoy... pizzaeast.com

Fashion

Linda Farrow sunglasses have long been a byword for chic in the world of shades, so if you're the kind who likes to hide behind your glasses Anna Wintour style, its new online gallery is the perfect shopping destination. Choose from the brand's luxe and vintage collections, or pull a selection from its catwalk collaborations with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Giles Deacon and Eley Kishimoto. If the eyes are the gateway to the soul, these are the sweeping, tree-lined drive. lindafarrow.co.uk

Harriet Walker

Books

With plaudits from Patrick Stewart and Derek Jacobi, Classical Comics' graphic novelisations of Shakespearian classics are worth looking at twice – and its new, first e-book is no exception. The interactive motion comic of Macbeth is voiced by Jacobi and Juliet Stevenson as the Scottish plotters, and offers notes on Shakespeare's language alongside its regular audio or "movie mode" illustrated versions. Is this finally a clever e-book I see before me? classicalcomics.com

Art

Original works by Pop Art queen Jann Haworth, co-designer of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper's cover, usually go for £20,000-plus. But, living up to its name (sort of), London's Affordable Art Fair is set to have two pieces by the American artist on offer for £2,850 and £2,250 through exhibiting gallery Olivia Connelly. And if two grand is still too rich for your blood, you can get in for half-price by bringing a friend, then split the price. Bingo! It's a thought, anyway... Thursday to 14 March, two-for-one entry on presentation of this page, affordableartfair.co.uk
