by Nina Christopoulou

Excited for your monthly update as per usual? Tune in to get the best options for June’s events, because we took our time gathering them for you!

7. Hampton Court Palace Festival

The sun is up in London and an open air festival is the perfect opportunity to soak up the rays before they disappear again! From Lionel Richie to Tom Jones, simple picnics to waterside gazebos, this festival has it all. Plus you have time to enjoy it – from June 5th until the 23rd!

6. Taste of London

Regent’s Park will gather 40 up and coming eateries to create the must of the season! A restaurant festival which will host great names such as El Pastor, Barrafina and Salon is set for June 13th to the 17th, and it sounds promising to say the least!

5. West End Live

Improvising their way to the most central square (yes, yes, that would be Trafalgar) of London, West End musical casts are preparing to mesmerise you. All time classics, new sets and more are in the works for musical theatre fans. Beware the spectacle runs for 2 days only, so make sure to save the date(s) – June 16 & 17.

4. Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival

This annual celebration of Chinese culture is definitely a sight for sore eyes. Dozens of Dragon boats will be racing on the Thames on Sunday, June 3rd. But the show does not stop on the water – lots of Chinese festivities will take place on land as well, from street food to traditional lion dancing. Sounds like a Sunday well
spent, doesn’t it?

3. Open Garden Squares Weekend

This is an all inclusive event, as more than 200 gardens across London unlock their usually constrained gates to show their beauty to the world! The weekend 9-10 of June is your chance to explore squares and roof terraces you haven’t been able to sneak into before!

2. The Halo installation

Mirrors, light and the impression of a halo will attract you to Somerset House this June. From June 8th head over to the extravagant building to see the impressive show and the accompanying exhibition, dedicated to Britain’s independent magazine.

1. The Queen’s Birthday Parade

There is nothing more traditional in Britain than its royals. So it is expected that London goes all out on the Queen’s Birthday (June 9th, in case you weren’t aware!). “Trooping the Colour” as the Queen’s Official Birthday Parade is called is the experience of a lifetime – so put a note in your calendar asap.
