What's On In London | Weekend 6 – 8 May 2016

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 15 November 2016
We can guarantee you weren’t quite ready for this current burst of Summer weather where, rumour has it – London will be warmer than Ibiza! But that’s not going to stop us from heading out and exploring the very best London has to offer, and it shouldn’t stop you either. From rooftop screenings to unique performances, and even the chance to explore the world without leaving this wonderful city, there are a wealth of events both inside and out, for you to enjoy (or avoid) the sunshine.

 

 


FRIDAY
