So it is Friday again – it seems to come around so quickly but also takes its time, how is that even possible!?
What will you be doing this weekend? Not decided yet? Well below is a list of a few things going on in London this weekend. And remember – if you are doing something you want to promote or are in a band you think more people need to know about then get in touch and maybe I’ll feature you here.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Archway with words – This is the first time this literary festival will be running and as it’s about books and authors it gets a big thumbs up from me. There will be a whole host of authors and venues for 8 days with all day long festivals at the weekends. Most events with authors will only cost you £5 and many attractions will be FREE. Yes, those magic words and my favorite price.
To find out more – as I know you want to do – visit http://archwaywithwords.com/
Thames clean up – Not for the faint hearted I would think but if you want to get involved with a big team of people helping to clean up the Thames then you can find out more info here – http://www.thames21.org.uk/
Merge Festival – This is a festival to draw in the history and talent in and around the Bankside http://mergefestival.co.uk/#merge-one There will be music and artists transforming derelict buildings and more!
Looking for a new bar to go to? Time Outs bar of the week is the Grain Store – this is in Kings Cross – and focuses on food and wine (with herbs and spices introduced into them) – I hear they are meant to be very nice! Check it out http://www.grainstore.com/
I am all for pop up stores and pop up events and this weekend – Fashion meets music – westfield, stratford, all about new designers and musicians – beats just going shopping in my book http://www.fashionmeetsmusic.com/news/fashion-meets-music-pop-up-westfield-stratford/
Shoreditch street art tour – what more is there to say, there is a tour in the morning and again in the afternoon – but check out the website for details of weekend tours – or just go for a ramble yourself to see the artwork – some of it is really good – http://www.shoreditchstreetarttours.co.uk/
Wanting something for all ages – then head to – Gerry Cottles Circus http://wowshow.co.uk/
The iTunes festival at the roundhouse – the 30 nights of live music is still on – head on down to the roundhouse for tunes a plenty http://www.itunesfestival.com/
Fleetwood Mac O2, Wednesday – now this I wish I was going to. If anyone wants to gift me two tickets feel free (yeah I know I am pushing my luck but my Momma always said ‘If you don’t ask you don’t get……’)
And if you want to just have a nice evening dancing and drinking tonight then head to the Jubilee Club in Camden. http://www.jubileeclub.com/Jubilee/This_Week.html
