2021 events now London is open
It’s been a long time since we’ve been free to enjoy everything London has to offer in its full glory, so with life back in full swing, we’ve listed some of our favourite things to do this Summer in London, in non-virtual form, from pop-up events, to mainstay classics that haven’t been cancelled, we’re sure there’s something here for everyone to enjoy in our wonderful capital.
Goldsmiths’ Fair is recognised internationally as the premier UK showcase for contemporary jewellery and silver. Goldsmiths' Fair will be physical this autumn, 28 Sept – 10 Oct 2021, providing a platform for their exhibitors and thousands of visitors from around the world, old and new, to enjoy the extraordinary works created by a selection of the best jewellers and silversmiths in the UK today. Goldsmiths’ Fair is held at Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London EC2V 6BN.
Hampton Court Palace Festival
Hampton Court Palace Festival is a series of truly unique open-air concerts. Artists perform in a 3,000+ seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor Palace. The line-up is set to feature a mix of music legends and pop stars including Tom Jones, Björn Again, Rick Astley, George Benson, Bastille ReOrchestrated and Lionel Richie, running from August 13 - August 24.
Six Day London
If you’ve missed live sport, this event is set to be ecstatic. The lights get turned down and the music turned up, as the world's best track riders do battle across six nights of epic racing, all set to a thrilling soundtrack. Off the back of an amazing 2019 event that saw the likes of Mark Cavendish and Elia Viviani hit the boards at the Lee Valley VeloPark, Phynova Six Day London is set to return to the capital for its sixth year. Watch top international riders face off in the velodrome at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park amidst a party atmosphere, from 26-31 October.
Cinderella in London’s West End
The theatres have been closed for too long, and what better way to welcome them back with a brand new production from Andrew Lloyd Webber. The classic fairytale musical Cinderella is coming to Gillian Lane Theatre between Holborn and Covent Garden, with an A-list creative team at its helm, the show is set to be nothing short of spectacular when it opens this Autumn.
Katherine Ryan Live
If comedy is more your thing, there are loads of comedy shows going ahead throughout the year, and we love Katherine Ryan. If you haven’t heard of her, in 2020, Netflix released the sitcom The Duchess, written by and starring Ryan as a single mother in London. Ryan has said the series is a heightened version of her own life story, particularly in her portrayal of a single mother in a foreign city. Her tour is well worth catching when it runs from September through November.
