August Super Seven

Hello sunshine… surviving a London heatwave is an achievement, and thankfully in London there is always something to do of interest. August is the perfect time to enjoy London without all the crowds. If this is your first viewing of our Super Seven, look back at June & July for a few extras. There are some brilliant exhibitions that end in August and really worth seeing. Our August Super Seven shop showcases a whole lot of rainbow inspiration in our monthly edit. So, with our pot of gold, here is our August Super Seven.

Victoria at Buckingham Palace. This is an exhibition we have been waiting for.. If it is your first visit to the Palace, it couldn’t be a better time to understand the monarch who made it the working palace it is today.

FRIDAY NIGHT LATES: Here is your list for Friday’s Late Nights in the Museums. Friday nights don’t get much better than Friday’s when London museums hold free events to entice you in for a culturally good night out. The Royal Academy are open every Friday until 10pm. Music, deck chairs and a bar to entertain you after the Summer Exhibition.
Tate Modern : Olafur Eliasson
V&A : DJ’s Live performances & discussions
NHM  : Pop up Science stations. 
Dulwich Picture Gallery: Pavillion Bar. Open Friday – Sunday 
British Museum: Spotlight Tours for 20 mins every Friday evening.

Sculpture in the City: Take a walk around the City of London and look at the city skyline in a more artistic way. 

London Theatre KIDS WEEK: This is a fantastic opportunity to take your kids to the theatre for FREE.. yes free. With every paying adult one child (16yrs & under) goes free. Take a look at the selection to choose from. We went to see Waitress last month and loved it, although I would hit that at 15yrs and above. Come From Away is another wonderful show, alongside classics as Wicked, Peter Pan, Fiddler on the Roof and so many more.

August wouldn’t be August without the Notting Hill Carnival. I can’t say I’ve been, however the twenty somethings go every year and love it. So it has to go on the Super Seven list. What I have done is give you a tasting of the new restaurant GOLD… take a read. 

Ahead of Frieze in October, check out the Frieze Sculpture in Regents Park. Especially if you are going to the Open Air Theatre this month… it’s the Tim Rice musical EVITA! Yes, don’t cry for me, but we have our tickets…

It doesn’t come much bigger than walking on the Moon. Celebrating this iconic moment in time, Greenwich is host to the largest Moon exhibition in the UK.
