Now that the weather is set to heat up and the light summer evenings are approaching, now’s the time to really make the most of your weekends. Here are the best things happening in and around London this weekend, so there’s no need to be stuck indoors!
Fancy a trip to the beach but not got the budget to stretch for a flight? Then this one’s for you. Head over to Neverland in Fulham (on Wandsworth Bridge Road, next to the Thames) for a BYOB (bring your own bottle for the uninitiated), beach party like no other. There’s beach volleyball, table tennis and beer pong tables to keep you entertained, then when you need a rest you can head back to your beach hut or day bed for a well-earned rest. There are loads of tasty food options too with alfresco dining options aplenty (from Raclette to Bao buns, you’ll find something satisfying) and even better is that you can get your own cocktail made up using the drinks you brought along with you! If you’re really chilled you can even get your own ‘beach butler’ to be at your beck and call and make all your drinks for you at your table. Click here to find out more.
Join in with the Merge Festival
If you fancy taking in some art, music and performances this weekend then the Merge Festival on Bankside is where you need to be. There are loads of cool things to take in across various different venues dotted across Bankside. Fancy a ride in an artist-designed bumper car area? How about getting your portrait drawn by a robot? If you’re looking for something more hands-on you can join in with the Slapstick Sports Day at Borough Market. Read more about what’s on here.
Yes please! Sounds good right? Well you’re in luck because New York’S Brooklyn Brewery is in town, and they are hosting an epic beer festival in Dalston. There’s 5 different rooms dedicated to several different types of beer, loads of great food options, different novelties plus games, art and tech; not to mention music until late too. Open this Friday and Saturday, you’d better get your tickets soon if you don’t want to miss out!
