Energetic teams of people racing dragons in Docklands – that sounds pretty cool. Even though they’re not real dragons. But when you’re caught up in the thrill of the competition, the London Dragon Boat festival does have a certain magic. Keeping the crowds entertained between races will be live music, traditional Chinese lion dancing and martial arts displays. And there’s a food festival, too, with stalls serving up the flavours of eastern Asia – now those will be the real deal.
London Regatta Centre, Royal Albert Docks, E16 2QT. Sun Jun 29, 10am-6pm. Free. www.dragonboatfestival.co.uk
