Summer by the River
London Bridge; 30 May – 28 August
This summer at London Bridge City, there’ll be two riverside bars, terrarium-building and puppet-making workshops, plus an open-air theatre doing Shakespeare and cinema showing screenings on the water’s edge. The real draw is the live music, though, which will feature riverside appearances from the likes of The Eskies (folk noir), Necktr (jazzy soul) and Massive Violins, a cello seven-piece who you should be sold on by the name alone.
