Cheapo Weekend for 30th June-1st July: Latin American Street Food and Arts Festivals

Becky Matthews

A weekend of (hopefully) sunny market wandering, Latin American street food, arts festivals and twilight cocktails.

Comida Fest Summer Season Vol .1

A hearty celebration of Latin American street food, the Comida Festival is hosting two summer events in London for 2018. This event will be held at the Cutty Sark Gardens in Greenwich with plenty of food, entertainment and music! Over 30 vendors will be preparing all of your cravings, favourites and lots of new dishes ready to discovered too, with seafood, BBQ and sweet treats to choose from.

Merge Festival

An annual festival curated by Illuminate Productions to celebrate the history and culture of Bankside. Bankside is the area close to the Southbank with winding medieval side streets and home to Shakespeare’s Globe and Tate Modern. The area will come alive for a two-week-long arts festival. Many of the events are free; so if you’re too skint to make it up to the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in August, you can get your fill of the artistic, the wonderful and weird in London this summer instead.

Dates:1st Jun–1st Jul, 2018

Midnight Apothecary

An atmospheric, candlelit drinking den is open on Friday and Saturday nights at Brunel Museum. Cocktail lovers can get cosy around the campfire with drinks, Greek street food and riverside views this summer. An advance ticket costs a fiver which includes entry to the museum—with an optional guided descent into the underground chamber (maybe do that bit before cocktail hour!).
