Things to do

Smithfield Street Party: A Beastly Adventure

Smithfield Market is hosting an animal-focused street party to mark its 150th birthday this August Bank Holiday Sunday. Curated by the Museum of London, there will be plenty of activities for all ages to get involved in. Watch in awe as aerialists swing from the rafters in one of the Central markets, or learn how to move like a bee in a waggle dance workshop. And of course, as this is Smithfields, there will be some excellent food and drink on hand to enjoy. Cheers!
