The tube strike is over, the sun is shining, the weather is warming up, and so is the endless list of events and pop ups for you to attend this summer. Make the most of this glorious weekend with a handful of events that could take you back to Ancient Rome, or escape to a tropical island… the choices are endless!

Larry Johnson

Fri – Sun

Ever wondered what the process an artist takes in creating an illustration? This is your last chance to see LA artist Larry Johnson’s exhibition: On Location. These curious art pieces are not to be missed, as they overlay the artists process of illustrations onto a photograph, creating again curious, yet captivation, scenes. Not only do these works hold impeccable colour and line, but the titles that accompany these images are some what of a linguistic game. See if you can work it out!

Gladiator Games

Sat & Sun

If going back to the 1920s isn’t historic enough for you, be sure to get a seat at the Gladiator Games – at the site of London’s only Roman amphitheatre you will experience ancient times as the steel clashes and the crowds roar as the warriors take to the stage. Get there early to experience the pre-show entertainment for the full experience.
