FRIDAY 15th June 2018
The World Cup at Bounce: Better Than Being There
Splitting games played by the favoured nations (and England) between their two venues, the people at Bounce will be scurrilously cheating on ping pong, and screening the football World Cup on 12ft screens with live brass bands, an F1 sound system, half-time shows, specialised pizzas from the various nations, and more.
Details: From 14th June | 121 Holborn, EC1N 2TD & 241 Old St, EC1V 9EY | Free Guestlist
Taste of London 2018
A taste of London doesn’t sound particularly nice.
But Taste of London most certainly does. And it’s returning to Regents Park this month with over 40 restaurants, a very literal fire pit for BBQ demos, wine-paired tasting menus from some of London’s top chefs, several bars, an artisan market, a Champagne Club House, and more…

On a mission to “lower the average age of lawn bowls from over 70 to under 40”, Festibowl takes place on the UK’s oldest bowling green (in Finsbury Square), and aims to make the games pacier & more enjoyable, in no small part thanks to the street food & cocktails. You can play 30 ‘practice’ sessions, go for a full match, or even play their appropriately named ‘Sudden Death Bowls’.
Details: 14th June-3rd August (Thursdays & Fridays) | Finsbury Square, EC2A | £5-£15
Dandelyan’s Botanical Suite
Botanical sweet probably wouldn’t go down too well. Botanical suites, however, definitely will.
You see the first one, maybe ever, is being put together by the people at award winning cocktail utopia Dandelyan in the gorgeous, Thames-adjacent Mondrian Hotel. They’ve commandeered one of the Tom Dixon designed suites, and will turn it into a lush, intimate tasting room (complete with its own botanical terrace to soak up the sun) for a series of experimental cocktail sessions…
Details: 4th-30th June | Mondrian Hotel, 20 Upper Ground, SE1 9PD | £55
SATURDAY 16th June 2018
The Leake Street Arches
If you’re looking for an interesting art, food, and entertainment venue this weekend, head down to Waterloo Station, and out towards the rear of the main terminal. Once you spot a series of graffiti-covered railway arches…
…you’ll know you’re on the right track.
Details: From 16th June | Leake Street, SE1 7NN
Great Architectural Bake-Off
It’s like Bake-Off, but instead of chefs there are a bunch of architects, and instead of making a classic sponge they’re making an iconic London building in the form of a cake. Last year there were over 500 people attending the GABO, and this year it’s looking even bigger…
Details: 16th June | Guildhall Yard, EC2V 5AE | Free
This Is Soho Presents Independent Label Market – Female Takeover
For the first time ever, the Independent Label Market will be curating an incredible all female line-up, and unleashing it upon the public at the Berwick Street Market with a series of vinyl stalls…
Details: 16th June | Berwick Street, W1F 8RJ | Free
Fork to Fork
Thomasia Miers – Masterchef winner & Wahaca founder – and Caravan co-founder Laura Harper-Hinton created Fork to Fork three years ago to raise money for the Open Air Classroom project, which teaches children resilience, healthy eating and creative engagement with the curriculum. It’s taking place this Saturday, and it’s essentially one big feast, with chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi, Jose Pizarro, Skye Gyngell, Margot Henderson, and more cooking up small plates (just £3 each) at more than 40 stalls.
Details: 16th June | ARK Franklin Primary School, Harvist Rd, NW6 6HH | £10
SUNDAY 17th June 2018
Cheese Street is the closest we’re going to get to a yellow brick road, and now it’s coming to South London. It’ll be popping up for one day only at the Blackheath Farmer’s Market, and there’ll be dozens of traders showing off their curdy wares in all their infinite variety. Expect Raclette Brothers, The Cheese Truck, Mac to the Future, and a lot more…
Details: 17th June | Blackheath Station Carpark, SE3 9LA | Free
The London Balloon Regatta
All you really need to do to enjoy this event is tilt your head upwards. It’s a balloon regatta, with dozens of hot air balloons primed to take off and fill the skies above the capital. They’ve been on standby to fly on the first available Sunday with good weather. And the forecast is looking good…

This Sunday, Caledonian Road will become home to the 8th CallyFest. They’re expecting around 8k people this year, and they’re preparing for the imminent hordes with two music stages, 70 craft stalls, parkour lessons, a poetry corner, and a ton more…
