An evening with “doyenne” of British photography Dorothy Bohm, free jazz for pub drinkers in Kentish Town and a comedy night in Primrose Hill are just some of the things featured in our top five this week.

1. Thursday - Dorothy Bohm

A unique opportunity to hear from the eminent photographer Dorothy Bohm about her work and influences. Born in 1924 into a Jewish Lithuanian family in East Prussia, Ms Bohm has spent her lifetime taking photographs and travelling the world. Her fascination with people is evident in much of her work and she has been described as one of the “doyennes” of British photography. She will be in discussion with her daughter, the art historian Monica Bohm-Duchen.

Held at Burgh House in New End Square, Hampstead. Starts 7pm. Tickets £5 (includes a glass of wine). Call 020 7431 0144 for more information.

2. Thursday - Free Jazz

Live jazz by a six-piece band will be entertaining pub drinkers at The Vine in Highgate Road, Kentish Town. The monthly gig is free to all. Starts 5.30pm.
