Glam London events still to come this Summer
The Summer is in full swing (and what a scorcher!), and if you’re looking to fill that Wimbledon-shaped hole in your schedule, or just need some glamorous occasions to wear your Summer dresses (and jewellery!), we’ve lined up some of the most exciting things coming to the capital over the next few months. Trust us, we’re far from done with this magnificent Summer!
You’ve got all Summer to enjoy this rather well-to-do event as it’s running all the way until the end of August. If you’re not familiar with Glyndebourne, the ‘festival’ label may be a bit confusing. This is definitely not Glastonbury. Glyndebourne is an old country house in East Sussex that since 1934 has been putting on extravagant opera shows. In the interval, spectators dine out on luxury picnics and champers for a few hours. It’s certainly a day out to remember.

Rooftop candlelit cocktails
Atop the Brunel Museum lies one of London’s best kept secrets, Midnight Apothecary, a candlelit, rooftop cocktail bar serving some of the best cocktails around. Kick back, toast s'mores on the firepit and enjoy some of their seasonal botanical masterpieces in this oasis that’s popped up every summer since 2012, and runs through to the end of August.

This festival needs little introduction, for the horse-obsessed, this is the event of the year. Starting on July 26 and running for five days, visitors can expect to enjoy some of the best horse racing in the world, and even better hospitality. If cars are more your thing, Goodwood Revival runs later in the year from September 16th, and attracts visitors from all over the world to see some of the best classic and modern sports cars race on the historic circuit.

Cowes is the biggest and oldest sailing regatta in the world. How about that? Not bad for a small island (situated off another small island!). Whilst not strictly London, it’s a solid calendar entry on any Londoner's Summer social season. From 30 July until the 5th of August, the Isle of Wight becomes a hive of sailing activities and enthusiasts alike. In any given day as many as 40 races will take place, so you’ll be seriously entertained, and there is certainly no shortage of champers at this event if you’re not!
