We’re blazing through summer… Lots of you are going to be away on holiday. If you’re still in London, I’d love to know your top tips and plans for August.

Here are some ideas:


London Yogathon – Outdoor Yoga
Join your fellow yogis for an outdoor yoga event on 22 August in Victoria Park. #RiseForACause is part of a string of worldwide yogathons that raise money for Care for Children, a charity that provides education for children in India.

Vivienne Westwood: Cut From the Past

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty at the V&A whetted my appetite for fashion. And what better than an exhibition of another rebel icon designer – Vivienne Westwood? Cut from the Past brings together for the first time a number of her ground-breaking designs, and explores the collections that proved to be her turning point both critically and commercially.
Danson House, a restored Georgian villa, provides a tailor-made backdrop to the exhibition which highlights Westwood’s seminal work of the 1990s which was influenced by the 18th century. Her passion for 18th century design is also reflected in some earlier pieces from the ‘Cut, Slash and Pull’ and ‘Mini Crini’ collections, and the ‘Seditionaries’ Collection.

Urban Beach
The Urban Beach at Royal Docks is a fun alternative to an actual beach holiday!

London Craft Beer Festival
Even the most dedicated yogi needs to unwind occasionally, and the London Craft Beer festival is a great place to have a few cool, creative beverages on a hot day. Check it out from 13-16 August.
