Things to do in London this Weekend – Jul 1-3

Looking for something to do this weekend? This is your definitive guide which will come every week, telling you what’s happening this weekend. As you know, this can range from one off events, long running events, or just cool places or good clubs to visit.

Even if the weather has been a bit all over the place, summer is officially here. So what better time than for a bit of an outdoor outing?

This weekend, we have the Charlotte Street Summer Fayre, which is on on Friday from 11am until 7pm.

TimeOut says: “See 14 Fitrovia restaurants take it to the streets for this one-day festival that’s part of Feast at Fitzrovia. Six chefs will pull out all the secret ingredients for the Beach BBQ Cook Off, there’ll be live cookery demonstrations, local food stalls and a Chilli Challenge for the bold of tongue.”

Staying on the theme of food for a moment, we have the Soho Food Feast taking place on Saturday and Sunday at Leicester Square.

This event does cost, but it’s only £15, or free for under 16s.

“Once inside the venue, visitors can buy food tokens for £2 each and explore the many different restaurant stalls. In exchange for a token they can try a small signature dish of the many great restaurants on offer, as well as being entertained by live music, an amazing raffle, children’s activities, live cooking demos, great wine and cocktail bar options.”

The music on offer varies per day, so check out their website here.

If a party is what you’re after this summer weekend, the pop-up club Glam Clam have a boat party themed around Ab Fab on Saturday night.

“The Glam Clam invites you to climb aboard The Good Ship Benefit on London’s Embankment to celebrate the premiere release of Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.  Renowned for throwing parties like no other, The Glam Clam guarantees an evening of outrageous drag queen performance, live music, Absolutely Fabulous fine dining and cocktails, and eccentric glamour – combined with enough bubbles to float a boat!”

Tickets range from £20-£50, get the details here.

Popping back to the outdoors for a moment, we have the RA Burlington Gardens Festival on Saturday for completely free.

“Burlington Gardens will be pedestrianised for the day with activities filling the street in front of Yinka Shonibare’s monumental artwork ‘RA Family Album’ which wraps our building during construction. Looking both at the past and towards the future, the artwork showcases the RA as an inclusive, dynamic place for artists, creativity and learning.”

If you’re in the festival mood but that didn’t take your fancy, then you might want to take a look at the Festa Julina.

This is better known as the Horniman Festival of Brazil, a family-friendly festival with live music, workshops, street performances and more.

“Experience installations, new dance performances and specially commissioned street art, both at the Horniman and throughout our Forest Hill neighbourhood, as well as fascinating photography displays and music. Be part of our digital conversations with #hornimanbrazil and get involved in dancing, making art or music at our events. Come and discover your own view of Brazil this summer at the Horniman.”

This is on Sunday at the Hornimum museum from 12 noon, and is completely free. Get more information here.

Once again we are lacking in decent gigs this weekend, but it looks like that drought will be ending soon.

Have a fantastic weekend!
