London will be the place to be this weekend. Here’s some of the wonderful activities you could enjoy, places you could visit and shows and exhibitions you might be interested in.
Carnaby Street Eat
The Carnaby Street Eat food festival returns this summer on Saturday 3 June from 12pm-6pm.
Join us for this free one-day food festival in the heart of London’s West End, where your favourite Carnaby restaurants, bars and cafés will be serving up the most delicious signature dishes and drinks on the streets of Carnaby.
Watch Carnaby turn into an outdoor foodie hub with stalls offering one-off dishes and drinks not to be missed. Enjoy free entry, £5 taster dishes and exclusive on-the-day offers from over 30 global cuisines alongside live music and entertainment. Take a seat at the giant picnic table stretched down Carnaby Street and dine al fresco, or recline in the relaxing summer chill out area in the Newburgh Quarter.

Brighton Fringe 2017
Brighton Fringe is England’s largest arts festival and one of the largest fringe festivals in the world. We set out to stimulate, educate and entertain a diverse range of people through a diverse range of art forms. And all this in an iconic city with unique cultural heritage.
Brighton Fringe takes place every May (5 May – 4 June 2017) and is a great place to spend the May bank holidays and the summer half-term break. This vast celebration of all things creative has grown out of, and is inspired by, home-grown talent. More than 50% of participants are based in Brighton & Hove
A wide array of critically acclaimed shows and performers also appear at Brighton Fringe each year, drawn by the huge number of appreciative audience members who attend every year.
This year’s programme included a record-breaking 932 shows and events across a dizzying array of art forms, including the first ever Fringe All-Nighter (27 May) with shows running until dawn. More than 200 events are free.
Yes we may be hitting the depths of winter but that doesn’t stop us thinking about festival season, especially when Field Day has unveiled their plans for 2017. Not only are they tightening up to a one-day event, so no more worrying about a Monday hangover, but they’ll be bringing a brand new stage to the park. The Barn is a giant metal arena with state-of-the-art sound and lighting tech and will be headlined by none other than Aphex Twin in a UK festival exclusive. Aphex Twin hasn’t played on these shores in almost a decade, so we’ve got a feeling this is going to be pretty spectacular.
The rest of the line-up includes Flying Lotus – Death Grips, Jon Hopkins (DJ), King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, King Sunny Ade and Moderat, and while the rest is still under wraps Field Day is known for top-notch programming, so it’s gonna be a good’un. Tickets are on sale now, consider it an early Christmas present to yourself.
This Thameside urban beach is BYOB, and perfect for lazy summer days in Fulham. The place will be decked out with street food vendors, swings, summer flowers, free-to-use deckchairs and truckloads of sand.
Entry is £10, but if you want that VIP, full-on resting beach face experience, you can pay extra to hire beach huts, partybeds or have a Beach Butler wheel over a mixology trolley where you can whip up your own cocktail. Bangarang
