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.
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.
