Top 5:
For Open-Air Culture

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre
1. Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, for the quintessential British experience

2. Greenwich and Docklands Festival, for cutting-edge performances

3. Shakespeare’s Globe, because no list would be complete without it

4. Opera Holland Park, for picnics and performances

5. Multi-Story Orchestra, for something completely different
Adam Simmonds’ The Test KitchenSmoke & Salt
We love it when a two Michelin-starred chef opens a culinary playground around the corner from UJHQ. Say hello to Adam Simmonds’ new pop-up, The Test Kitchen (nestled into Barrafina’s former spot on Frith Street). There’s no set menu, and it’ll be ever-evolving based on diners’ feedback. Get in ASAP. After saying a sad farewell to Kricket’s Pop Brixton location, this weekend we welcome its replacement: Smoke & Salt. Migrating from its pop-up at Islington’s Chapel Bar, Smoke & Salt’s unique small plates focus on curing, smoking and preserving. We can’t wait to try the lamb merguez tartare, chicken with truffle ponzu and hispi cabbage with pickled peanut.

Doorly x UJ Hideout Playlist
Happening at the end of this month on Croatia’s Zrce Beach, Hideout Festival is fast approaching. With Hot Since 82, Eats Everything, B. Traits and Bicep all on the line-up, it’s sure to be one to remember. To get you hyped, we asked British producer Doorly to preview some tracks he’ll be playing at the festival. Listen up!

Backyard Cinema Miami BeachThe Electric Forest at the RA
Because sometimes the great British summer isn’t quite enough, get a slice of South Beach in South London with Backyard Cinema’s latest season. The line up includes classics like Bridesmaids, Grease, Clueless and Pretty Woman. Enjoy with your toes in the sand and cocktail in hand. As part of the opening of their unmissable Summer Exhibition, the RA are throwing a psychedelic summer solstice party in their courtyard. Think neon UV life drawing, maypole dancing, Pagan crafts, ‘70s disco DJs and an immersive screening of The Wicker Man, plus a private view of the Summer Exhibition.

Laurent-Perrier Masterclass
Laurent-Perrier are back at this year’s Taste of London – happening this weekend. If you’re a fan of the fizz, make sure you don’t miss their masterclass, which gives guests the chance to sample all seven of their diverse champagnes.
Taste of London runs from 14th-18th June, Regent’s Park, Chester Rd, NW1 4NR. Tickets for the masterclass are available from £72 here
Nyetimber Garden BarGiant Sundays at Giant Robot
Forget prosecco, this summer we’re all about English sparkling wine. If you’re a fan, make sure you head to Nyetimber’s pop up Garden Bar in the Covent Garden Piazza. All throughout June, they’ll be serving up their signature tipples against a floral backdrop taken from the Chelsea Flower Show garden ‘500 Years of Covent Garden’. Drink up. If you’re stuck for a plan this Father’s Day (or just hungry) head to UJ’s fave street food spot Giant Robot for Giant Sundays. Each Sunday, the stalls go supersize; everything gets bigger, except for the price. Double up on Yum Bun, try the weekend-only Little José Tapas Tray, or get a double helping of BOB’s Lobster Eggs Royale, with a free mimosa. Arrive hungry.
