In addition to our daily ‘What to do Today’ features, we bring you ‘What to do This Weekend’ so that you’re never without a plan.

What to Do This Weekend: Celebrate the Spice Girls and St. Patrick’s Day


First on the docket, for today 17 March… go to a Spice Girls fitness class with Frame in Fitzrovia.

Open to Spice-girl-wanabees of all levels, these classic hits and old tunes are the perfect opportunity to dust off your old routine. And just in time for the group’s reunion…might be a good idea to tighten those moves, you know, just in case they’re recruiting. Ben Vivian-Jones leads this 120 minute class. If you can’t make it today, there’s another class next Saturday. Frame also offers Destiny’s Child, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Beyoncé Beginners workshops. Just saying.

Where and when? 25-33 Berners St, Fitzrovia, W1T 3LR / 0203 375 1936; Class begins at 2:30pm. Cost: £12.50; book at Move Your Frame.
