When not slacking off from his day job as Patron Saint of Lepers, St Giles is happy to lease out his Fields to creative types. From July 5-7, this increasingly cool corner of London will play host to Transcend @ St Giles, a not-for-profit performance festival celebrating the culture, history and ethos of the area. There’ll be theatre, promenade performances, art, talks, hands-on making stuff including Paint Jam’s Arty Tea Party and the ‘David Bowie is Walking’ in St Giles tour, alongside music from the likes of Daytona Lights, Annaca and Bonnie Dobson. Worried about squandering your beer tokens? Don’t – most of the events are free. David Keevil
