Summertime funtimes :)

25 Jul

Hope everyone is enjoying the glorious heat wave we’re having at the moment in the UK. So nice to wake up to the sun outside as opposed to pattering rain and grey skies 🙂

I’ve gone a bit crazy this week and have bought tickets for various different awesome events that I’ve had my eye on. Here’s a little breakdown of some cool events that are coming up that I’ll be at!

Bompas & Parr’s rooftop crazy golf at Selfridges London

Selfridges London has opened its amazing roof terrace for The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party, transforming the space into an incredible crazy golf course and the highest afternoon tea on Oxford Street (mwahah). Bompas & Parr create amazing architectural scale food designs with cutting edge technology.  Projects explore how the taste of food is altered by synaesthesia, performance and setting. They use jelly, cake and incredible edible masterpieces that make your mouth water and your brain melt! The golf course itself was designed by Bompas and Parr – the holes look like giant jellies in the shape of famous London buildings! Can’t really think of a better way to spend an evening, drinking tea, eating cake and playing golf in a Willy Wonka-esque wonderland!

Future Cinema presents Grease, location TBC

If you haven’t been to a Future Cinema or a Secret Cinema event then you haven’t lived. They’re an amazing concoction of theatre, cinema and interactivity. I recently attended Secret Cinema’s Prometheus at an old factory in Euston. You have to attend in costume and there are actors rife around the venue playing characters from the films. You interact with them and the production and decor is outstanding throughout the venue, and then you go and watch the film afterwards. Future Cinema is a slightly different in that they tell you the film that will be showing beforehand (in this case Grease) but with Secret Cinema, they only give you clues that they email you through before the show date. Such a great experience – PLEASE GO!

Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fashion Fair Olympic Special, London Spitalfields Market

I’ll be covering Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fashion Fair for The Big Mac Blog on Saturday 4th August and after attending a few of these before they’re a lovely way to spend the afternoon, looking (and buying!) beautiful one off vintage items. There are over 100 stalls at this incredibly stylish event in Spitalfields market, selling clothes, furniture, homewares, and collectibles. They also run a competition for the best dressed to win clothing vouchers, and it’s highly likely you’ll come across celebs at this special event! Best start planning my outfit!

Viva Las Vegas, Las Vegas USA

That’s right. Viva. I’ve wanted to go to this for over 4 years now and I am FINALLY going!!! So very excited. Going with all my favourite rockabilly crew too which will mean funtimes in the craziest city in the world. I’ve already blogged about this incredible event, but if you like your rockabilly, rock and roll, doo wop, jive, swing, rhythm and blues – you SHOULD go. The event itself is the biggest Rockabilly meet in the world. Car shows, live bands, burlesque, gambling, dance classes, shopping – the whole shebang. I’ll be on the hunt for some outfits at Judy’s Fashion Fair on the 4th August!!

So that’s it for now! If you’re planning on going to one of these do get in touch! Would love to meet you 🙂
