What's on in London this month

Vivienne Westwood, as is so often the case, says it best: “There’s nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere.” We couldn’t agree more. There is, simply, so much to do in this wonderful city. We cover some of the finest postcodes in the capital and make it our business to know what’s going on in each of the local areas.

We present our guide on what to do, where to visit and where to be seen this month.



Camden

Black Tot Day Celebrations, 31st July, Camden Road House http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/whats-on/2015/camden-beach/camden-beach/

Pusser’s, the original navy rum, is honouring the 45th anniversary of Black Tot Day (the last day that the Royal Navy issued sailors with a daily rum ration) by hosting The Beach at Camden’s Roundhouse. The Grade II-listed, former railway engine will be transformed into a homage to the sea with rum cocktails and rum tasting sessions.

 

The Beach (17th July - 23rd August), Camden Roundhouse http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/whats-on/2015/camden-beach/camden-beach/

The Camden Roundhouse is an unlikely spot for 150 tonnes of sand, deck-chairs, beach huts, ping pong, rooftop gardens, pop-up restaurants and more bars than you can shake a spade at. Make the most of British summertime in North London.

 

Open Gardens, 9th August, 1/ 70 Gloucester Crescent - Open Garden for NGS

Explore the secret gardens of NW1 when they open their doors for one day only this summer. Highly recommended is the first, where challenges of space in Camden’s urban density have been overcome by ingenuity, love and pomegranates.

 

Hampstead

Hannah Collins’ Summer Exhibition, 4 July – 13 September

Camden Art Centre http://www.camdenartscentre.org/whats-on/view/collins

"Collins' capacity to convey the emotional and psychological aspects of spaces steeped in cultural and social history.” This extensive exhibition marks the photographer’s return to London after living abroad for many years.

 

Mayfair

StreetXo, opens summer 2015

15 Old Burlington Street, Mayfair

This is the first London restaurant from David Muñoz, a three-Michelin-starred chef and creator of Madrid’s DiverXo. Madrid’s sizzling street food in the heart of Mayfair.

 

Kensington

Wright Bros Kensington, opening August

The Old Brompton welcomes a new venture from the popular Wright Brothers. This time, featuring a stand-alone bar with an extensive list of cocktails and wine. Particularly exciting are the happy hour ‘pound a pop’ oysters, from Wright Bros' own Duchy Oyster Farm.

 

South Kensington

The BBC Proms, 17 July – 13 September

The two-month-long celebration of classical music at the Royal Albert Hall is a British summertime institution. The programme is extensive so we’ve picked our favourites:

Prom 41: 16th August, the first ever Sherlock Holmes prom with actor Mark Gatiss.

Prom 59: 30th August, Life Story Prom presented by David Attenborough

Prom 70: 7th September, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Rimsky-Korsakov

 

West End

Dear Lupin, 30 July – 19 September Apollo Theatre http://www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk/london-shows/show/item287634/dear-lupin/

Roger and Charlie Mortimer’s classic has been adapted by Michael Simkins to bring this touching, funny exploration of the father son dynamic to the Apollo stage. Played by real life father and son James and Jack Frost.

 

Hettty Feather, 7 August Duke of York's Theatre  www.hettyfeatherlive.com/

Jacqueline Wilson’s inspiring tale is adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves in a tale to delight the whole family.
