Boutique’s Guide to Bank Holiday

August 27, 2010

Bank holiday weekend is just hours away and the office is full of conversation over how and where everyone will be spending their time. We’ve listed a few extra bank holiday activities, London style, for you to enjoy this weekend:

The Vintage Amours City Garden Party; 28th August 10-6 The Methodist Church, Clapham HIgh Street, Nelsons Row, London, SW4 7JR
If you’re in or around Clapham this Saturday and SW4 is not your thing then we’ve overheard on the style grapevine that this is the place to meander. You can spend the day sipping fresh lemonade, shopping the vintage stalls and even having a dance. We reckon it’s going to be Clapham’s version of Goodwood and it’s in association with Age concern. Vintage has never felt so good! For more information click here. pst!..Make sure to visit Make Lemonade’s stall where’ll they’ll selling their hand picked vintage buys!

Cake Britain; 27-29 August The Future Gallery, 5 Great Newport St, London, WC2H 7HY
This must be the only exhibition where the artists encourage you to eat their work! Created by The Mad Artists’ Tea Party and sponsored by Tate & Lyle, artists and cake makers including Lily Vanilli and Crumbs & Dollies serve up their work, host stunts and run workshops for children.

CYOA! Part 3: Montego Bay w/ Daddy Ad (Trojan Sound System); TONIGHT 9.30-3 Question mark bar, 129 Stoke Newington High Street, Stoke Newington, London, N16 0PH
What they say….It’s Carnival weekend! We’re choosing a Jamaican adventure!
Hurricane season is approaching and Pirates have overrun the waters off the Florida strait so we’re taking refuge in beautiful Montego Bay with the sweet (and not so sweet) sounds of reggae all night long!  Daddy Ad from the world famous Trojan Sound System will keep you dancing whilst Blackbeard’s ghost will be supplying complimentary gold rum that he acquired in a dan…gerous heist off the coast of New Providence.


Held each August Bank Holiday since 1966, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest festival celebration of its kind in Europe. and this weekend will be no different. Pop along this Sunday and Monday and enjoy the fun of steel bands, floats, authentic food, the parade, more live music, dancing, drinks…you name it it’s there!
