May has arrived (ALREADY!?) and we can’t wait for what’s in store for us in the capital. Summer is firmly on the horizon, we’re seeing sunnier spells, and dining alfresco will become the norm before we know it! From dazzlingly colourful flower shows through to huge sporting events, we’ve listed the top five occasions to look out for over the next month:
Celebrate the wedding of the year as Prince Harry marries the gorgeous Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle on May 19th. Citywide, we will be treated to royal-themed afternoon teas, tours and events to commemorate what promises to be a truly remarkable occasion.
CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW
The prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show returns between the 22nd and 26th of May! Although the show will sell out, floral-themed events in and around the Chelsea area will be offering special afternoon teas and unique menus in honour of the show.
OPEN AIR THEATRE
This month you have the pleasure of watching a spectacular play… IN THE SUN! In Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe, we’re truly blessed with two of the UK’s biggest and best open-air theatre’s right here in the capital.
CHELSEA GO FOR FA CUP GLORY
On Saturday our ladies go head-to-head with London rivals Arsenal in a game which could see Emma Hayes’ team make history by winning the trophy for the first time! A couple of weeks later, on the 19th of May, Antonio Conte’s men face up to ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United charges looking to secure their EIGHT FA Cup title.
LONDON WINE WEEK
The seven-day festival returns once again this month with fabulous events occurring each day of the week between the 14th and 20th of May! From pop-up wine bars to al fresco parties and over 125 of the VERY BEST wine bars offering tasty ‘sip & snack’ cuisine for Festival Pass holders, it’d be a POUR decision not to secure your wristband ASAP!
