Things to do in London this August: Cocktail festival in London in August


Cocktails in the City festival


The London Summer Edition of the Cocktails in the City festival takes place this weekend, aka the 4th and 5th of August, at the Bedford Square Gardens in central London. The festival brings together the best bartenders from various different bars around London to one compact space, where they are all competing of the title of the ‘best bar experience’ award – voted by the visitors, of course.


Bars taking place are, amongst others, Islington’s Little Bat, Kingly Court’s Cahoots and Shoreditch’s Nightjar. Tickets cost £20 and include one cocktail, after which each cocktail costs £7.50. There’s also cocktail making classes and live music if for some reason you get bored of just sipping on ALL the amazing cocktails..!


KERB Camden Lates


love the KERB Camden market. They have so many amazing food stalls from vegan Mexican food by Club Mexicana to the famous halloumi fries by Oli Baba’s, but the problem is I rarely get to go as it normally closes around 7pm, which has made it almost impossible for me to go and enjoy it after work. Not anymore!


For the summer only, KERB Camden is keeping its doors open later every Friday until the end of August. There’s different DJ:s playing music every week, and as well as choosing food from all the amazing different stalls, there’s also a bar dishing out signature cocktails and craft beer. And the best thing? The entry is completely free!

Spice Up London exhibition


Does this even need an explanation?! Girl Power is coming back to London and I’m so here for it! The Business Design Centre in Islington is throwing the ultimate Spice Girls exhibition showcasing hundreds of stage costumes, memorabilia and other merchandise.


The exhibition costs £10 per adult and runs until 20th August. I’m gonna be so sad if I miss this one!


Rooftop Film Club


The Rooftop Film Club is one event that I’ve been meaning to go to for pretty much every year I’ve lived in London. It sounds like so much fun, but whenever I remember it’s on, most of the tickets have already sold out or I just can’t afford it (which might be the case this year too due to our move!).


But just because I might not be able to go, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t! I’ve just checked, and while some films are sold out, there’s still a lot that have tickets left, such as Clueless, Mean Girls and Grease. Personally, I’d love to see all of them!


Tickets cost £18 with a booking fee so pretty much standard cinema prices (when did movies become so expensive?!) and there are three venues across London: The Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch, Roof East in Stratford and the Bussey Building in Peckham.


Please let me know how it was if you do end up going!
