If you plan a holiday in London there always are plenty of activities and events to be a part of. The city has a very lively and colourful event calendar from January to December, which covers a variety of events and festivals ranging from music to culture, entertainment to sports and much more. This September if you want to join in the fun and festivities in the city, it is recommended to make your hotel reservations in advance.
Finding suitable metropolis accommodation at short notice can be a challenge with summer being the period when the city is awash with visitors and tourists. The best thing to do is to make your room reservations in advance to avoid any disappointment upon arrival.
A great place to stay is the Shaftesbury metropolis London Hyde Park Hotel that offers premium luxury, top notch facilities and sterling customer service as a very affordable price. While in the city some of the events to watch out for this September include:
The Totally Thames festival: It is held all through the month from (01 – 30 September) where you can expect to find people all along the banks of the much-loved waterway on the Thames. It is an annual event that includes various festivities and events all through the month. These include community events, arts festivals, river races, regattas and environmental activities among other events. This year it plans to be even bigger and better with new installations and events like the Thames River Relay, Floating Dreams by Ik-Joong Kang, Maritime Lecture Series, Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival, The Singing Bridge etc. A great place to spend time at this September!
Dinner at the Twits: It is an immersive dinner banquet with a twist based upon Roald Dahl’s grotesque creations. One of the grossest was “The Twits” which had the characters dining on some of the most squeamish dishes imaginable. However bizarre it may sound experimental chefs Bompas & Parr have coupled up with interactive theatre masters Les Enfants Terribles to create the most grotesquely tempting treats on the planet! If it sounds terrible well it certainly does not taste so! As the master chefs boldly state that ‘squeamishness will give way to scrumptiousness’! You need to book your table in advance.
No Man’s Land: A Pinter masterpiece it finally comes to the city with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. While they have played on-screen rivals, the two real BFFs Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart have teamed up to produce Harold Pinter’s classic ‘No Man’s Land’ and bring it to the stage. It has both of the thespians put in a power packed performance with co-stars like Damien Molony and Owen Teale put in sterling performances as well. Directed by Sean Mathias it is not to be missed, if theatre is what catches your fancy!
