The Fabularium Fairytale Festival

This weekend the Crick Crack Club is host to the Fabularium, a fairytale event for grown-ups and children alike. Housed in a yurt on the Southbank, the bizarre setting sets the scene for the family day performances and the evening adult ones. Tickets are still available for some events.

Community Haystacks

For something a little different and for a glimpse at rural life, head to Walthamstow Marshes for a weekend of scything, haystack buildings and a big communal picnic. The event returns for its third year, so if you’re feeling brave pit yourself against the professionals in the Scything Competition on Sunday. The event is open to all and is non-ticketed.

August in Africa Summer Festival

Get to Covent Garden’s Africa Centre this Saturday for a celebration of African culture, encompassing music, photography, art and fashion. With performances from the likes of Parisian born Nigerian soul singer-songwriter ASA to urbanite Fuse ODG the event is set to be a scorcher. This is not a paid or ticketed event, so get up to get down!

Africa Centre, 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, E1 6LA
