June is the official first month of #summer, but unfortunately I can’t promise you on going great weather, but I can promise you lots of #activities taking place in #London that will keep you very entertained. #Festival of #Love returns to the #Southbank Centre and celebrates love in all its guises, from 6th June to 31st August. There will be themed performances, poetry, workshops, street art, BMX-ing and musical entertainment. The festival also includes the Big #Wedding Weekend over the August #Bank Holiday weekend when 100 couples are invited to marry in mass ceremonies in the #Royal Festival Hall, so don’t forget to wear your fancy attire to be a spectator at such an unique event.
Known as ‘The Happiest 5k on the Planet’, The Color Run takes place at #Wembley Park for a third year in a row. The run is less about speed and more about fun, the event sees runners/walkers/dancers begin the event in clean t-shirts, but after being doused in a different coloured paint at each kilometre, crossing the finish line completely covered in a vivid rainbow. This event takes place on Sunday 7th of June and people of all ages can participate.
From 20th to 28th June, #legendary #flamenco #guitarist, composer, dramatist and producer #Paco Pena will be hosting his new show Flamencura at #Sadler’s Wells theatre. In pursuit of ‘duende’, the alchemy between interpreter and audience at the core of flamenco, the Spanish guitar virtuoso, six #musicians and three dancers portray a musical journey through the history of flamenco in all its variations in dance, song and guitar. If you make a booking for any of the Sunday performances, then you can have a chance to learn the steps at free pre-show flamenco classes.
