Get lost in the Neighbourhood

050

Si en cualquier ciudad o pueblo el verano es la época del año propicia para disfrutar de las calles, de largos paseos, de cerveza en las terracitas, etc, aquí en Londres se convierte en la única época en la que posible, a menos que seas nivel avanzado en aclimatación, o que esa cerveza se convierta en unas cuantas que te ayuden a entrar en calor. En esta entrada os proponemos disfrutar de las calles de un barrio londinense que sólo existe durante el verano. Se trata del  Neighbourhood Festival, y aunque no sea un barrio propiamente dicho, sino un festival de verano, des  de aquí le adjudicamos el honor de ser el barrio más inteligente de la ciudad. Este espacio lúdico abre sus puertas hasta el 8 de septiembre en el Southbank Centre.

A lo largo del verano,  este festival celebra lo que significa vivir en un vecindario y formar parte de una comunidad, invitando a todo aquel que se acerque a compartir sus experiencias, talentos y energía. Para ello, el Southbank Centre se transforma y recrea las calles de un barrio convencional, vivo y lleno de actividades para todos sus públicos.

If in any city or town summer is the proper time of year to enjoy the streets, long walks, a beer in terraces, etc., here in London becomes the only time when it is possible, unless you are in the acclimatization advanced level, or that beer becomes a few to help you get warm. In this post we intend you to enjoy the streets of a London borough that exists only during the summer. This is the Neighbourhood Festival, and even if it is not an actual neighbourhood, but a summer festival, from here we ascribe it the honor of being the smartest neighborhood of the city. This space is open until September 8 at the Southbank Centre.

Throughout the summer, this festival celebrates what it means to be a community and to live in neighborhoods. They invite people to share their experiences, talents and energy. For this the Southbank Centre is transformed into a neighbourhood, full of life and activities for all audiences.

Nomad Cinema

Now, that it seems summer has finally settle in London with us, who wants to stay home?. Londoners and foreigners are looking to spend as much time as possible out of our winter shelters, and we focus on those plans that allow us to enjoy this wonderful weather, which unfortunately does not last forever.

Today we suggest you to move outside one typical indoor activity: cinema. Although we really enjoy a popcorn and cinema session, we are reluctant to shut ourselves within four walls to enjoy our hobby (it’s so hot!). But London always has an answer to our prayers. Knowing that all its inhabitants are eager to enjoy outdoors activities, the city offers a plan that we can not resist, summer cinema. During these summer months, the city has not only an outdoor sinema, but several, and in different areas of the city.

44 years and one day after their legendary concert in Hyde Park, the Rolling Stones returned last Saturday to the iconic London’s park.  Despite their wrinkles, and their age  (all members are in their seventies) Their Satanic Majesties carried out an energetic two-hours gig. Their offered high doses of rock & roll to the tens of thousands fans who would not miss the show.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards Ron Wood and Charlie Watts were welcomed by over 65,000 people. Actually, that was just the number of thickets the organization put up for sale. No need to say that they were sold out quickly, even the ticket prices were as high as the fame enjoyed by this British band. More than 100 pounds the cheapest ticket for the concert!!
