The sun-drenched climes of Andalusia are coming to the banks of the Thames for a Spanish festival full of mouth-watering tapas, sherry tastings and jamón Ibérico masterclasses. Tuck into organic gazpacho, watch live flamenco dancers and sample some moreish Andalusian cocktails. Arriba!

The Aperol Spritz Big Birthday Social
icon-location-pin Shoreditch
The Aperol Spritz Big Birthday Social

Aperol is celebrating its 100th anniversary in true Italian style with a ‘1919 Lido’, complete with revolving carousel bar, Aperol-glass-shaped ball pit and classic-Italian-car hot tubs. Then there’s the lido itself, which is an opportunity to bob around on orange floats, drink orange drinks and take selfies under the orange waterfall. We get it, Aperol is orange.  

Show of the week: Sarah Cockings & Harriet Fleuriot: ‘Another Funny Turn’
icon-location-pin Stockwell
Show of the week: Sarah Cockings & Harriet Fleuriot: ‘Another Funny Turn’

Free From Festival

If your dietary requirements mean you spend a noticeable portion of time squinting at ingredient lists, this food festival in Brick Lane will be a chance to let loose.

Naturally, there’ll also be plenty of ‘free-from’ treats, and demonstrations from specialist chefs. 

Bar of the week: The High Cross

Adams Antiques Fair

Foodies Festival

Syon Park will be overflowing with good food and drink over the bank holiday weekend. Catch recipes and masterclasses in the Chef’s Theatre and Drinks Theatre.

icon-location-pin Stratford
May Half Term at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Since opening to the public five years ago, the Olympic Park has become a popular spot for fun in the capital.

The Sainsbury’s 150 Experience
icon-location-pin Covent Garden
The Sainsbury’s 150 Experience

Sainsbury’s has been around for 150 years, so it’s time for some immersive theatre, taking you back to its beginnings with a pop-up recreating its Drury Lane butter, milk and eggs store in 1869. There’ll be performances taking you through the shopping experience right up to the present day, and interesting finds from the Sainsbury’s archive.

Kate Cooper: ‘Symptom Machine’
icon-location-pin South Bank
Kate Cooper: ‘Symptom Machine’

This mega-tense video installation is about beauty and conformity. It’s a fight-back from the good guys.
