Unmissable festivals in London
Weekend plans lacking a certain je ne sais quoi? This celebration in and around Borough Market of all things Français for the country's national day will feature all sorts of activities, foods, games and performances from across the channel. Play some boules or petanque, chop up watermelon using a guillotine and enjoy plenty of bread, cheese and wine at the many tasting sessions. The party will round off with the open-air Bal Populaire (6-10pm), so your evening will be filled with dancing and Gallic merriment.
Let your kids run riot in the Square Mile at a festival that hopes to turn five-to-eleven-year olds into 'architectives'. Some of the City's most iconic buildings are opening to families for workshops and activities that will help children explore aspects of design and construction. Highlights include sessions at the Gherkin, a new festival hub at 6 Bevis Marks, scooter competitions and DIY events.
RHS London Harvest Festival Show
Some of the UK's finest nurseries, growers and independent producers will cart their harvest produce to the Royal Horticultural Society this October for their annual celebration of autumnal fruit and vegetables. Visitors can admire, taste and buy the freshly picked, dug and plucked ingredients, or those who grow their own can enter the RHS Fruit and Vegetable Competition to win cups and cash prizes. The first prize for heaviest pumpkin last year was £1000, which would just about make up for the fact that the winner must have eaten pumpkin with every meal for months afterwards. The RHS Harvest Festival Late will accompany the event.
