On the agenda: Paul Joyce retrospective; Roksanda Ilincic; BFI's Capital Tales; jazz quartet Kairos 4Tet; Bar Pepito

Photography

In a career spanning over 40 years, photographer Paul Joyce has captured an impressive array of actors, film-makers and artists, from Jane Fonda in full Barbarella garb to legendary British sculptor Henry Moore. And now you can take a peek at some of his best (including many previously unseen) images, at a retrospective at Proud Chelsea art gallery from Wednesday, including a startlingly young-looking Quentin Tarantino, and a dishevelled Johnny Cash. proud.co.uk

Fashion

Languid, lean and elegant, designer Roksanda Ilincic is the living, breathing embodiment of the clothes she creates. And her second capsule for Whistles arrives in store this week. Cocktail dresses are embellished with oversized beads and decorated with double strap details and drapery. Who said garden parties couldn't be edgy? Perfect for injecting a bit of London style into country weddings this summer. whistles.co.uk

Harriet Walker

Books

It will be a busy week for naturalists, as the clocks going forward coincides with the publication of some very fine nature writing. Richard Mabey's definitive collection, A Brush with Nature, has just been published, and it will be joined on Thursday by Luke Jennings' Blood Knots: On Fathers, Friendships and Fishing. Then, next week, comes The Song at Your Backdoor, by Irish poet Joseph Corgan, which spans one autumn and one winter of observations from the writer's own back yard.

Katy Guest

Film

Film-makers have been imagining and interpreting life in London since British motion-picture pioneer RW Paul kicked it all off in the late 19th century, leading to the likes of the climatic Big Ben scene in Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps and glossy shots of a resurgent Canary Wharf in modern-day gangster flick Layer Cake. But if you're looking for a chance to see the capital through more unfamiliar eyes, then it's worth taking a look at the BFI's new series "Capital Tales", where some lesser-known films from its archives, such as the bleak 1960s murder mystery Four in the Morning (set in Docklands and starring a young Judi Dench), will be screened once a month. Starts 21 April, bfi.org.uk

Music

With their debut album garnering rave reviews, now seems a good time to catch jazz quartet Kairos 4Tet before they hit the big time. Led by saxophonist Adam Waldmann the ferociously inventive foursome will be performing next Sunday at the newly refurbished Bodleian Library for this year's Oxford Jazz Festival. Expect a Wayne Shorter-influenced blend of wild improvisation and sonorous grooves. From 1-4 April, oxfordjazzfestival.co.uk

Food

Get past the image of an octogenarian "Colonel" sipping on a glass of sweet sherry and the world of Andalucian wines delivers some seriously rich dalliances with your palette. And where better to sip on some of the finer Spanish offerings then at London's first sherry bar. Opened off the back of award-winning King's Cross tapas bar Camino, and occupying the same courtyard, Bar Pepito packs in a selection of 14 offerings from the sherry triangle. Just don't ask for a glass of Harvey's Bristol Cream. camino.uk.com/pepito
