5 Cool London Date Ideas This Week 13/6-19/6
It’s going to be sunny all week apparently! With that in mind, it’s time to detach yourself from your screens and do something fun! Here are our 5 cool London date ideas this week!
With the London sun shining in all its glory, what better way to show your date a good time than whisking them off to an outdoor food festival? Taste Festival is back in Regent’s Park this weekend to excite you and your date’s tastebuds. Great for a date if you aren’t really wanting to hit a restaurant and want to enjoy the weather.
One for those who like their dates with a little more “oomph”. So, stay with me on this one, but monster trucks are invading the London Stadium on Saturday and I couldn’t recommend this enough. Definitely one for those who are over the whole “drinks after work” date and want to do something different.
More outdoor festival hi-jinx, the Highgate Village Festival is happening this weekend. A lot of moving parts to this festival with performances, talks, tours and workshops amongst everything happening throughout the week. It’s on until Sunday, so you have a few days to find something you’d like.
One for the culture vultures. This Thursday, there’s a great discussion at The Barbican happening called “Imagining the Impossible: Creativity in a Time of Crisis”. Featuring a panel of artists including Es Devlin, Gaika, Priya Ahluwalia and Alice Aedy as they discuss the power of storytelling and creating in a time of climate crisis.
It’s hard to know what to believe these days. “Fake News” has plagued our newsfeeds leading us to be more apprehensive than ever. Head to the Rich Mix in Shoreditch with your date and check out the excellent “Art of Fake News” exhibition. The exhibition “explores, investigates, denounces, mocks and exposes” the phenomenon that is fake news as various artists contribute to what is an incredibly topical space for discussion.
Until next week!
