From the Beatles farewell to a horological dream in Knightsbridge, here are our picks for the next 48 hours.

Cinema: The Beatles: The Rooftop Concert
The full Peter Jackson Beatles documentary is available to binge on Disney + but if you’re an avid fan with an hour to spare, a cinema outing to see the famous rooftop concert on the big screen will be just the ticket You know the story by now. Looking to perform some Live tracks from their new album, Let it Be, The Beatles consider Libya, Pompeii and the Royal Albert Hall as possible locations before deciding to play on the roof of Apple HQ at 3 Savile Row, London.  With legendary keyboard player Billy Preston in tow, the Fab Four rip through the likes of Get Back and Don’t Let me Down before being ushered off the roof by several confused police officers. It’s a defining moment in music history and don’t be surprised if your fellow cinema goers break into song.
The Beatles: The Rooftop Concert is available on limited release nationwide.
