Make sure you check out what's going on in London this week!

 

 Taste of London

What to expect: A fine food feast washed down with a glass or two of champagne

One of London’s most delicious festivals returns to Regents Park this week, with culinary delights served by first class establishments Le Gavroche, Duck and Waffle, Salt Yard and L’Anima to name but a few! Food fanatics can satisfy their cravings with tasting, hands on master classes and live demonstrations from Michelin starred chefs not to mention a silent disco at Mortimer’s Orchard to burn off all those calories.

Returning to Regents Park from 18th – 22nd June. Tickets from £25.80, available here.


 Midsummer Water Day

What to expect: An afternoon of water inspired fun

As part of the Museum of Water, Somerset House celebrates Midsummer Water Day with an afternoon full of events, talks, installations, singing, screenings, and family workshops all on the topic of.... you guessed it, water! Occupying various spaces in Somerset House and Kings College London, visitors are invited to create stories and poems, build hydraulic toys, get their hands dirty in gooey slime, help find Nemo and even learn and perform a water inspired song amongst the dancing fountains of the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court. There is nothing that will dampen your spirits at this event!

Midsummer Water Day takes place on Saturday 21st June, from 12:00 – 6:00pm. Admission is free, find full event listings here.


 Midnight Circus

What to expect: An opulent spectacle of circus tricks at their very best... and most dangerous

Jacksons Lane takes its audiences on an avant-garde adventure to the risqué underworld of Midnight Circus. Think Cirque du Soleil meets gothic Moulin Rouge as this daredevil group of death defying acrobats have audiences spellbound. Combining stunning choreography with lots of fire, these circus experts in trapeze, rope and pole, straps, aerial hoop, contortion, silks and angle grinding will leave spectators in disbelief. Saturday late night specials also encourage audience members to let loose and enjoy post-show performances, DJs and delicious cocktails. This is most definitely a show not to be missed!

Midnight Circus is on at Jacksons lane from 18th June – 22nd July. Tickets £21.95, available here.


 Show RCA 2014

What to expect: Contemporary art and design practice at its most cutting edge

This week sees the return of the annual Royal Collage of Art graduate show. Visitors will be given the unique opportunity to see, experience and even buy the work of these exceptionally talented designers and artists. Over 575 graduates and postgraduates will exhibit their work across two free shows at their campuses in Kensington and Battersea. Ranging from furniture and textiles to paintings and prints, these beautifully crafted displays of contemporary art and design practice are not to be missed. So if you want to discover the next David Hockney or Tracey Emin make sure you get involved!

The exhibition starts on Wednesday 18th June and runs until Sunday 29th August. Admission is free, further information available here.
