A good weekend for West End hits, fringe theatre, sipping cocktails and tango! West End Live The square is alive, with the sound of music in June. Musical theatre fans can experience highlights from hit shows without the sting of the West End ticket prices. In fact, there are no tickets at all, you can just turn up. West End Live is an annual, open-air weekend festival of more than 30 free performances of well-established shows. 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. Tango lessons in Spitalfields Your days can be brightened with a little latin rhythm on certain Sundays and Thursdays from June to September. Instructors Ren\u00e9 and Hiba, aka Tango Fever, are offering free tango lessons in Bishop\u2019s Square, Spitalfields on Sunday afternoons. Classes take place underneath a canopy because even rain doesn\u2019t stop dancing! Zip Now High flyers who enjoyed Zip World London, can get their skyward kicks again. Back with a new name, at Archbishop\u2019s Park in Lambeth. This year there will be three 225 m\u2013long zip wires, starting at 35ft (the height of nine double-decker buses!) so you can hurtle through the air at 50 mph next to your friends and loved ones. As well as speeding through the air, you\u2019ll get dizzying views of sites including Battersea and Westminister. It\u2019s suitable for kids over the age of 8 when accompanied by an adult. 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\u2014with an optional guided descent into the underground chamber (maybe do that bit before cocktail hour!). Deptford Market Yard Rivalling nearby Peckham and Brixton, the latest addition to the Deptford food scene Deptford Bites is a new weekly food and craft market from the events collective Eat Me Drink Me which will be on every Saturday. There will be a focus on South East London traders and makers with food stalls including Zoe\u2019s Ghana Kitchen, KraPow LDN, Muffin Man, Hank\u2019s and Piadina Project and live music each week.
