What's On In London | Weekend 10 – 12 June 2016

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 15 November 2016
This weekend, HRH The Queen celebrates her 90th birthday with all the pomp and circumstance you’d expect. But it doesn’t need to be all about her, as there’s plenty other things to do and celebrate instead. Why not float away on a bar in Clapham or travel back to the 20s with the opening of the Bloomsbury Club Bar. Either way, there’s more than enough to kickstart your summer here in London!

FRIDAY 10th JUNE
