If, like us, the only thing we love more than a festival is a FREE FESTIVAL, you’re bang in luck as that’s exactly what’s happening down at Seven Dials this weekend. One-day fest Summer Sessions is taking over all seven streets of Seven Dials (which’ll be pedestrianised and the dial covered in astroturf for extra seating) for the ultimate celebration of summer.

Of course it’s not a festival without music and there’ll be plenty of that, with the likes of Victor Ray, Lisa Canny, Josh Barry and Zebede performing on the main stage. Throughout the day you’ll also be able to enjoy pro performances on Seven Dials’ first-ever skate ramp, flower crown making, wellness classes from Stretch and Digme, hair braiding, glitter & floral face art, tarot card reading, and a silent disco in Neal’s Yard. Seven Dials Market and Monmouth Kitchen will be quenching your thirst with their outdoor bars, Ole & Steen will be handing out samples of their iconic Cinnamon Social, and Apple Butter Cafe will be serving up iced coffees and treats all day. There’ll be refreshments on wheels too, in the shape of an ice-cream tricycle at Away and a Rathfinny sparkling wine bike outside the Covent Garden Hotel. Ticket holders will also receive a free ice lolly!

If you fancy treating yourself, brands including Adorn the Common, Dai, Aesop, Kiehls, Nappa Dori, Astley Clarke, Hotel Chocolat, Farah, Ollie Quinn, MATE Bike and Superga will all be offering discounts and giving away gifts during the festival. And you could really win big with the charity tombolas (Seven Dials is supporting the Young Camden Foundation, with local tap points also collecting donations), with prizes like fragrances from Miller Harris, meals for two at Homeslice and The Patate, goody bags from Experimental Perfume Club, and vouchers from Ron Dorff and Vintage Threads up for grabs. 

Sounds like the ideal way to spend a Saturday, right? Tickets to the Seven Dials Summer Sessions are totally FREE, you just gotta register below to nab yours now.
