The forecast does not open any door to doubt: this weekend would be cloudy as best, with heavy and sticky warm and uninvited rain…Anyhow, there will be a couple of nice plans to do around town without going broke.
If you are already wondering where your holiday has gone, get imaginiative and feel as in Ipanema while watching women’s beach volleyball players compete at Horse Guards Parade, the venue for the London 2012 Olympic Games Beach Volleyball. Tickets are available for two sessions per day with prices range from £15 to £25, with concessions for children aged 16 and under and adults aged 60 and over.
The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition is one of London’s longest-running art shows, now in its 243rd year. Don´t be late as this weekend would be your last chance to discover this year´s display!
It’s also the world’s largest open-submission contemporary art exhibition with around 11,000 works submitted annually. The show covers painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and architecture. Most of the pieces are for sale, so it’s a great chance to purchase some original artwork.
Canary Wharf Jazz Festival plays a double role as it brings the artsy musical scene with a stunning line up delving into every corner of the jazz genredown to the Wharves while it lits up the new financial district during the weekend…for free!!
