10 July 2017
We may still be in shock from the sudden addition of sun in our lives, but we sure know how to enjoy it! Take some time away from the day to day madness and enjoy all that July has to offer…
Get your obnoxious hats and sunglasses on! With a glass of champagne in one hand, and strawberries and cream in the other, you’re set to join the A-Listers in their ‘ooohing’ and ‘ahhhing’ in the crowds at Wimbledon. Whether it be Nadal, Federer, Djokovic or some awe inspiring new-comer, its sure to be a great match.
On the 8th July 2017, people of all faiths, gender and race take to the streets of London to celebrate love in the world acclaimed London Pride Parade. With all that has happened recently, the theme for this year’s march is 'Love Happens Here', which fully encompasses the astounding community spirit and compassion within the UK.
Food and Drink
As a nation (especially when the sun is out) we are instantly drawn to any pub, bar, café or restaurant with a wooden bench and a bent umbrella. Why not enlighten your palette and try the best of British famer’s produce in The Food Market Chiswick in Shepherd’s Bush throughout July?
With British Summer Time in Hyde Park, Love Box in Mile End or Citadel Festival in Victoria Park, you have music from all genres just around the corner. However, if you feel like escaping the hustle and bustle of London, the last ever Secret Garden Party Festival is taking place in Oxfordshire this summer.
Ever wondered what Buckingham Palace looks like on the inside? With their annual summer opening, the public have the opportunity to go beyond the gates and see for themselves. Let’s hope we catch a glimpse of the Queen or even better, a corgi!
There is nothing quite as special as seeing Shakespeare performed at the Globe. Whether you know every single line or only know that Leo played Romeo, Dunstrer’s new interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing whisks you away to 1910 in Mexico City making it new to even the most learned eyes.
If you missed the delights of the Chelsea Flower show, you can have the chance to marvel at beautiful gardens and floral displays at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, the largest annual flower show in the world.
Time for something a little different…get your walking shoes on and follow a trail of art across London’s East End during the all-night arts festival, Art Night. Curated by Fatos Ustek in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery, this year’s event comes to London’s East End with a dozen art projects popping up in unusual and iconic locations between 6pm and 4am. Many of the works are site-specific and directly engage with the culture and heritage of the area.
Open Air Cinemas
Clear skies, sun loungers, popcorn and a showing of Dr. Strange or Lala Land, makes for an alternative night out. Kick back at the multiple open air cinemas that have now been reopened all over London. Or even, why not try watching Mean Girls, whilst going on a boat up the Thames?
Can it get any better than being in the Albert Hall, waving the Union Jack and singing Jerusalem at the top of your lungs? Simply, no. Hear a large range of classical music with first rate conductors and celebrate the 123rd edition of the classical event with more than 90 concerts and 30 premieres.
