September falls… September is my favourite time of year for a Super Seven, with so many exciting events happening after the summer. Some events have already begun, so I’m looking forward to September being truly inspiring and starting the Super Seven ‘under the eye’ in Greenwich!
Greenwich & Docklands International Festival is in full swing. There are still many events that continue though to 11th September. Borealis by artist Dan Acher is particularly stunning – a Northern Lights show in the middle of The Old Naval College. It’s sold out, but there are walk-ins. The Festival ends 11 September 2021.
Chila Burman has arrived in Covent Garden. This neon art takeover is full of positive messages, which is just what we need going into Autumn. Covent Garden is back to its old self, but this time with so many more places to eat and drink outside. It is well worth the trip. Do you see words in Rainbows? On until October 2021.
Pub in the Park returns to Chiswick 3-5 September. If you can still get tickets for this, GO! Food, drinks, and music set in the grounds of this beautiful historic house and garden. It is far more fun than you think.
FT Weekend 4 September 2021 : Reimagining a post pandemic world is the theme this year as the festival returns to Kenwood House. Your ticket gives you access to talks by some of the great FT writers and invited guest speakers. If you can’t make it, there is a digital ticket that will give you access to all 8 stages. I’m really excited to be going this year.
London Design Festival 18-26 September. LDF has featured in every September Super Seven. I’m always excited by the LDF installations that go up around London, they are always so innovative. This year is no different and expect a true show stopper at the V&A.
Open House London 4-12 September 2021. One of the good things to come out of lockdown is that incredible festivals like Open House now run for longer than two days. It can be overwhelming to cram in all the beautiful buildings you want to see. This year I’ve been looking at my friend Catherine Cultural Wishes post which has some good highlights.
Chelsea Flower Show 2021 21-16 September. For the first time the show comes to Chelsea in September. There are still tickets available, but if you can’t afford the ticket, enjoy the local area. Belgravia in Bloom and Chelsea in Bloom return with gorgeous installations for free – I’m not sure what excites me most.
Festival of Home 18-19 September: As we all celebrated leaving our home, this is the Museum of Home’s first ever festival. There will be a weekend of activities exploring what the home means to us in every sense of the word. Friends who have been to this museum say it is fabulous, so I am keen to visit myself.
The Blue Paradox 15-27 September : An immersive experience to see life under the sea and the effects plastic pollution are having on our oceans. Tickets are free if you can get your hands on one.
Photo London 9-12 September : Somerset House is home to London’s largest photo exhibition, featuring iconic photographers, established publishers, and emerging talent and galleries. It is always a visual treat.
