What's Happening in London: May & June 2021

The next few months look set to be exciting ones for London residents, as more and more public spaces open again. 

We take a look at some of the must-see, must-do, must-eat events in London over the next couple of months. From art and cultural experiences, to gastronomic delights, to just pure fun days out, we have you covered.

1. The Opening of Italian Food Market Eataly

Currently a thing in over 15 countries around the world, the arrival of Eataly in Broadgate near Liverpool street station is something for us all to get excited about. This huge culinary space, all 42,000 feet of it, will include a food market, multiple restaurants, food stalls for takeaways, a drinking and dining terrace (this looks set to be our favourite), a cookery school, and what will be THE largest wine cellar in London (okay, maybe this is our actual favourite part!). So whether you're a Master Chef looking for quality ingredients to prepare an intimate dinner at home, or looking for a great space to eat well with friends before going out to the theatre, Eataly looks set to be a superb and dynamic addition to London's culinary scene.

2. The Tate Modern Presents Two of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms

Set to run from the 18th of May - 12th of June 2022, these immersive installations are aimed at transporting visitors in the artist's unique vision of endless reflections. 

The larger of the installations, Infinity Mirrored Room - Filled with the Brilliance of Life, is one of the artist's largest installations, and will be shown alongside the full-room exhibit titled Chandelier of Grief, made up of rotating crystal chandeliers. 

Yayoi Kusama, the artist, was born in Japan, and first came to prominence in the 1960s in New York. Her work since then has encompassed installation, painting, sculpture, fashion design, and literary writing. She currently calls Japan home. 

3. The Reopening of Brixton Courtyard

To say we are excited about the opening of this vibrant space is something of an understatement. Check out their now regular Sunday brunch, with food served by Only Jerkin'. They also have a stellar line up of DJs and performers planned, among them Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, the Horse Meat Disco, and Channel One. Quite possibly the perfect place to see in the summer this year.

4. The Launch of Somerset House's Drink, Dine and Dodgems

Even the name has us bursting with excitement for an event that has been postponed several times over the course of the last year. Recently designed by artist Yinka IIori, Somerset House promises an experience for visitors filled with colour, sounds, and above all, tons of energy. Ride dodgems, enjoy their open-air art installation, and sample food and drinks from pop-up food legend Jimmy Garcia. There will also be planned brunch and late night events with DJs. 

Attendance is open to all, and anyone is free to walk in subject to availability. But tables can be pre-booked and advance tickets include a dodgems ride and a drink. 

The next few months promise to be busier ones for London as a whole. This summer we expect an emphasis on outdoor, open events, and we are here for them!
