London Wildlife FestivalFriday 9th to Sunday 11th August
An exciting new addition to the event calendar this year and designed to appeal to everyone, from nature lovers to city slickers, is the London Wildlife Festival in Walthamstow. Organised by the London Wildlife Trust, this festival is billed as London’s largest ever event dedicated entirely to the diverse nature and wildlife found in and around the boundaries of the capital. Hosted by TV presenter Patrick Aryee, the programme includes talks and debates by leading conservation experts, guided walks, and the chance to try bush crafts and willow weaving. Not one to be missed by Fizzy Walthamstow residents who live right next door!
Hayes Outdoor – Sunday 11th August
Now in its second year, this outdoor arts festival will bring sensational performances to west London. Featuring a diverse array of family-friendly acts, whether you’re 4 or 74, there will be something for you. Highlights this year include a display of choreography and puppetry telling the story of Greek tragedy Icarus by the Southpaw Dance Company. Ofir Yudilevitch will perform Gravitas, a routine which combines acrobatics and contemporary dance. Finally, the Avanti Display Group promises a unique and hilarious experience for the audience with ‘Full Circle’. And best of all, Hayes Outdoor is completely free!
London Dessert Festival – 17th to 18th August
If you have a sweet tooth, the London Dessert Festival in Spitalfields is the perfect treat. This festival promises to take people on a journey through different “experiential spaces and scented themed rooms”, with some of the best dessert brands showcased in four main immersive zones – chocolate, patisserie, frozen and vegan. If you prefer to drink your calories, why not try a cocktail hand-crafted by one of London’s leading mixologists? Or you can try your hand at dessert-making with a “Sundae School” class. The event at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane is just around the corner from Fizzy Stepney Green. Tickets are £21.

Not sure what to do this Bank Holiday? If you’re a disco lover at loose end, why not head to One Day at The Disco. With eight of the genre’s leading artists on the bill, this brand-new festival will take place in east London’s Three Mills Island. Disco legend Derrick Carter will bring one of his much-loved sets to the festival and there’ll also be appearances from a top international and domestic line-up. The venue is only a short trip from Fizzy Poplar and Fizzy Canning Town – talk about convenient for our residents there!
