Did the August Bank Holiday sneak up on you too…?

Good news, we hear it’s going to be sunny and dry! To celebrate, we have selected a few ideas for you to enjoy in London Town.

Take a look below for some inspiration:

Location: Notting Hill
Nearest Tube: Notting Hill/Holland Park

The Carnival is over 50 yrs old, if you’ve not been, we highly recommend it! Sunday is family day which is more relaxed (go early to avoid crowds) and Monday is for your hard core people with more than 60 bands and sequins galore!


Location: National Theatre, Southbank
Nearest Tube: Waterloo / Embankment

Grab a drink and enjoy the many free acts performing by the river. Saturday fun: For the family, Goblin’s Peter & the Wolf, with live music, puppetry and physical comedy (13:30 & 16:00). Directed: Matt Borgatti AD: Barra Collins. Performed by Ajjaz Awad and Lewys Taylor.

Sunday chill: The incredible singer songwriter Phil King has the whole trinity: a beautiful, soulful voice; deft skills at playing the guitar and the capacity to write elegantly worded and powerful songs. NOT to be missed! (17:15)

Location: Hawker House
Nearest Tube: Canada Water

Strap in for an 8 hour patty party, set in a car park in Canada Water on Saturday 26th August. Tickets are available online. For £15, enjoy two beers, a pickle shot and beats. From 4pm until midnight!

Happy National Burger Day!


Location: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
Nearest Tube: Stratford

We love this venue for our clients! Not only is it a brilliant meeting space but you can also Ride the Slide! It is 40 exhilarating seconds that will overlook glimpses of the skyline with a 360 viewing platform to enjoy the most iconic buildings in the city! There is then plenty to do in the park afterwards.




Location: Windrush square
Nearest Tube: Brixton

Good food, good music, good times. This carnival-inspired event will have you bopping away whilst enjoying authentic Caribbean food. This is a free event but arrive early to avoid the crowds. Fri 25th- Sat 26. Check out their website for dates & venues.
