What To Do, See & Buy: The Pirate Project; Franco Manca pizzeria; Juan Muñoz; Percival; K3 kettle


Play fight

What would the swashbuckling female pirates of yesteryear make of the aspirations of 21st-century women? So asks Improbable Theatre Company in The Pirate Project, which opens in Colchester on 18 April, combining live drama and filmed conversation. The show tours the high seas for a month, from Leeds to London. For venue details, visit improbable.co.uk

Full circle

Franco Manca pizzeria is the jewel of Brixton market, south London's foodie Mecca. Learn to recreate their award-winning sourdough delights with a masterclass at one of their capital venues, from 5 April. Students pay £20 a head, and you get to eat the pizza at the end of it: win, win. Call 020-8747 4822 to book

Our dearly departed

An Inaccessible Moment is a posthumous show of the work of Spanish artist Juan Muñoz. A self-described "storyteller", his pieces are in the Tate and Guggenheim, but this show at London's Frith Street Gallery is more intimate. 25 April until 16 June; frithstreetgallery.com

Cool Britannia

The new collection from menswear brand Percival – which launches at Asos this month – is inspired by all things British: T-shirt prints inspired by the colours of Plymouth lido, and donkey jackets in beeswaxed cotton, perfect for country walks. Visit asos.com

Go large

Big enough to cram all your worldly goods into, but not so large you'll never find them again – and just the right side of gaudy, with bold Aztec-inspired print and a bright yellow strap. What more could you want from a tote? A silver fish zip-pull, of course. £179, plumo.com

High tea

An oft-overlooked Modernist design classic, the K3 kettle has just been re-released in its original Magnalium alloy, with sycamore handle. Heat on an Aga or wood-burning stove (OK, a gas hob will do). £149, twentytwentyone.com
