Veera’s pick: Rooftop Film Club
The summer is almost here, and one of the best ways to enjoy it is to watch a film outside. There are several outdoor cinemas in London. My choice is Rooftop Film Club, where I can watch my all time favourite film Moulin Rouge on 10/5! Before the screening, you can have a drink at the Rooftop East Bar, and play games with your friends. What a great way to spend a warm summer evening!
Address: Roof East, 45a Broadway, London E15 1XD. Lounge Seat £14,95. https://rooftopfilmclub.com/london/
Oula’s pick: Field Day Festival
Strictly speaking my pick takes place in June, but this one needs some preparations: The Field Day festival has moved to a new home in South London and will take place in Brockwell Park on June 1st and 2nd. The festival has become a mainstay in London’s busy festival calendar and is again drawing a number of talented artists from around the world. There’s something for everybody with various genres such as hip hop, jazz and electronic music well covered. This is a must, don’t miss out!
