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.
Looking for drinking shenanigans with a little bit of class? Well, perhaps Cocktails in the City at Bedford Square Gardens on both Friday and Saturday.
“Following sell-out events last summer and this spring, the team behind London’s greatest cocktail party are back in the beautiful surroundings of London’s largest private Georgian gardens.
From West End to East End in just a few short steps, enjoy twenty-five of the capital’s finest bars with no taxis, no buses and no tube.
Tasting tables, cocktail masterclasses, live music and street food vendors come together to create the ultimate cocktail weekender.”
Tickets are £15, with all cocktails at the event being £7.50. Get more details here.
Want something for the kids, or just channel your inner child for the day? Then Lego Town might be just the ticket.
“Come along to Conway Hall Library and help us to build a city of awesome structures. It might be a house for a dinosaur, a secret lair for the minions or a factory for making chocolate … See where your imagination takes you!”
This event is taking place at Conway Hall Library on Friday, and is absolutely free. Get more info here.
If you’re after a sampling of alcohol but the thought of cocktails isn’t interesting you, then it might be the Gin Bus that you’re after.
“Immerse yourself in a truly unusual travel experience with a curious journey around London on the Hendrick’s Extraordinary Roving Bus of Exceptionally Refined Travel…or HERBERT as we like to call him.”
“Hendrick’s Gin have the answer to Londoners’ travel woes in the form of a peculiar double-decker bus cunningly disguised as a giant cucumber. And, of course bartenders will be on the bus to pour the perfect Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic with a slice of cucumber, serve cocktails and offer cucumber macaroons.”
This unique experience is ending soon, with the last day being this Friday. Tickets are only £2.50, so give it a look see here.
The nice weather seems to be mostly holding (even if it has cooled down from that brutal 32c), so why not check out Camden Beach at the Roundhouse?
“Returning for its fifth year, Camden Beach will transform the Roundhouse’s terrace into the ultimate summer destination. This year, we are partnering with Virgin Holidays who will be bringing the best of Barbados to Camden via a beach BBQ and themed events.”
“For 2016, the beach will also play host to a series of live music performances from young emerging musicians and DJs who have all come through the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios.”
This is on all weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and is completely free. Get the details here.
Continuing the beach theme with our next entry, we have SunSets Festival in Greenwich Peninsula.
Every experience at Corona Sunsets has been handpicked to encompass the perfect day under the sun.
“All attendees are invited to contribute their wishes, thoughts and dreams to the hand-crafted flags that will hang at the entrance of the festival.
Hailing from all ends of the earth, world-renowned DJs and musicians will travel to deliver the ultimate sound of the beach.
As if the beach setting wasn’t enough, the handcrafted Griffin and Crown Stages are audiovisual spectacles that create a festival experience like no other.”
This is on Saturday and will cost you £17.50 for entry. Check out the festival here.
We also have an offering of food for you this weekend, with the excellent opportunity to sample Caribbean cuisine at Kerb x Reggae Roast Soundsystem in Granary Square.
