What To Do, See & Buy: Ansel Adams; Simeon Farrar; Tom Dixon; Wilderness Festival
A hidden gem, re-opened last week for its summer season, Farley Farmhouse in East Sussex was once the rural hideaway of surrealist artists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose. The pair would often have their friends round – Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Max Ernst – and their visitors' work now adorns the walls: a wonderfully curious place to visit. Every Sunday, April-Oct, farleyfarmhouse.co.uk
It's not all about the stuffed tigers and dusty dinosaur bones at London's Natural History Museum. Venture down to Exhibition Road this spring and you will discover a garden full of very-much-alive butterflies and moths. Fifty species from around the world will be fluttering about inside their tropical greenhouse. £4.50, until 15 September
Book of Adams
The jaw-dropping photographs taken by Ansel Adams in a lifetime spent capturing the essence of America's great outdoors on film, have been wowing audiences at The National Maritime Museum since November. Now, as the exhibition draws to a close, the curators have called in extra copies of the show catalogue, Ansel Adams: At the Water's Edge, for you to take home. Continues until 28 April; catalogue £20
Frolics with Farrar
Simeon Farrar is one of fashion's funny men – as evidenced by his latest set of designs for ASOS. His label Black Score is beloved of catwalk 'besties' Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, who wore Farrar portraits of one another at London Fashion Week. Our favourite, though, is his send-up of Brad Pitt(bull)'s Chanel ad. £45, asos.com
Britain's industrial past may have been consigned to history, but the upside is that it can now be mined for design cues by that masterful man of furniture, Tom Dixon. His new collection, Rough & Smooth, uses heavy materials and something called 'textural honesty'. More importantly, it looks great. Cell Tall pendant light, £325, tomdixon.net
Wilderness Festival is shaping up to be one of the hottest tickets of the summer. An afterthought at most major festivals, but absolutely key to proceedings here, is the food. Some of the biggest names in the London restaurant scene – Yotam Ottolenghi, Russell Norman and our own Mark Hix – will venture into the wild, presiding over three days of feasting. 8-11 August, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, weekend ticket £139, banquet-only tickets £55-£85
