What’s On In London

Looking for things to do this month, don’t sweat it, we’ve got lots to keep you busy.
Let us know what you are up to with #lotiloves

Summer is officially here, regardless of what the weather says – we’ve not had the same soaring temps as we did last year but our fingers are remaining firmly crossed. We may not be beside the seaside, but that’s not gonna stop us from celebrating National Fish & Chips Day, especially as it sets us up nicely for World Gin Day. The festivals keep on coming too, and it’s not just musical ones either; London’s got a pizza one, a spoken word one and architecture one all happening this month too. And then there’s the most colourful of all celebrations to get involved with because its Pride month – rainbow flags at the ready!
