Stewart Marsden[Photo: Stewart Marsden]

June’s arrived, and it’s brought the loveliest list of fun with it. This month sees the return of Wimbledon, The Royal Academy Summer Show, 32 Londoners and the Festival of Love. Heaps of ace parties are also lined up including Mister Sunday at Oval Space and Fleetmac Wood. Delicious dining experiences come in the form of dockside diners, pineapple-infused cocktail bars on the South Bank and streetfood stalls in a spruced up Shoreditch car park. Here’s everything you need to know about June!

THINGS TO DO

Jun 2-20: The Tuareg and A History of the Sahara The Tuareg are nomadic people of Mali and Niger whose history goes back over a thousand years. They live in extreme conditions in the Sahara and have a rich culture of poetry, ballads and distinctive dress. This exhibition of photography, letters, drawings, maps, music and poetry is a rare chance to learn more about the ‘blue men of the desert’, their traditions, and the way they see themselves today.

Jun 2, 15, 24: The Workbench Carve out your own piece of unique jewellery at this seriously fun craft night from design labels, Crux London and Kirstie MacLaren. On June 2, guests can learn how to create a silver pendant from jewellers wax, while the other two dates focus on creating silver rings.

Jun 4: WMG Late: All Blues Experience the Gallery after-hours at this monthly event where visitors can take a closer look at special exhibitions and enjoy fun craft activities into the evening. June’s event is inspired by the work of artist in residence, Lucille Junkere whose practice explores the history of indigo dye.

Jun 5-Jul 17: Sunset Safari at ZSL London Zoo Those of you who wish your everyday tasks involved more exotic creatures are in for a furry, feathery treat this summer. London Zoo is inviting us all to join its inhabitants for their evening meal and to find out more about animal bedtimes.

Jun 5: 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo concert It’s been 200 years since Napolean was defeated in the Battle of Waterloo, and this commemorative concert will bring some of the excitement and drama of the big event to the stage of the Royal Albert Hall.

Jun 6-Aug 31: Festival of Love at the Southbank Centre The Southbank Centre’s having quite the love-in this summer with the return of their Festival of Love – two months’ worth of installations, activities, pop-ups and performances that celebrate humankind’s most overwhelming emotion.

Jun 6-7: Nordicana Scandiphiles and Nordic Noir lovers: prepare yourselves for Nordicana, a two-day celebration of gripping crime dramas from northern Europe.

Jun 6: Jupiter London Nocturne International riding stars headline at this annual cycling event, with races around Smithfield Market and family entertainment throughout the day. Alongside the impressive speed races are some more niche cycling talent pools: penny farthing and folding bike races would never pop up at the Olympics.

Jun 7: Color Run in Wembley Park We can’t help but imagine that having powdered paint showering over you as you take on a five-kilometre run must make things a lot slower, but for this particular race that simply doesn’t matter. Participants in ‘the happiest 5k on the planet’ aren’t expected to break any world records, because having a brilliant time is way higher on the agenda.

Jun 11: 32 Londoners In June, the Eye will see the return of 32 Londoners, a one-night-only programme of talks curated by A Curious Invitation and Antique Beat. First introduced in 2014, it sees each of the pods become a gently rotating lecture theatre with a brilliant view of the capital.

Jun 13 and 14 2015: Open Garden Squares Weekend 2015 In 2015 more than 200 gardens not ordinarily open to the public will unlock their gates for a weekend to take part in this annual event, held in association with the National Trust.

Jun 13: Trooping the Colour Although Trooping the Colour is also known as the Queen’s Birthday Parade, this prime piece of pageantry doesn’t take place on Her Maj’s actual birthday (that’s on April 21) but on her official birthday, a Saturday in June being more likely to provide decent weather for the proceedings.

Jun 13: London Naked Bike Ride This protest against oil dependency and the way the cult of the car dominates contemporary life is also an unfettered celebration of individuality of the human body. Many of the 1000 plus people expected to turn out will opt to bike in the buff, though full nudity is optional; the dress code is ‘as bare as you dare’.

Jun 14: Cally Festival Thousands of people are expected to attend the 2015 edition of this annual one-day festival which sees the Caledonian Road closed to traffic and filled with entertainment. The main stage will host performances from local talent, Story Street will be home to poetry and spoken word, a Caribbean party and soundsystem will pop up on Lyon Street and the Arty Block Party is your chance to get creative.

Jun 14 and 21: 19 Princelet Street the Museum of Immigration The building is only open to the public a few times a year, and the first two openings in 2015 mark Refugee Week. Explore the tiny east end home in which a group of French immigrants became London citizens and find out more about the aspects of their culture which have influenced the Spitalfields area over the centuries, most notably weaving.

Jun 17-21: Taste of London in Regent’s Park Big names on the line-up of chefs who’ll be doing talks and demonstrations include Marcus Wareing, Monica Galetti, Atul Kochar and Nuno Mendes. Taster portions will be available from high profile London eateries such as The Clove Club, Ember Yard, Duck & Waffle and Roka.

Jun 19-21: Bow Arts Open Studios The Bow Arts annual open studios welcomes the public into the work spaces of over 150 artists and designers who share the complex, amping up the fun with pop-up bars, local street food, live music and a designer-maker market.

Jun 19: Space Spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall Combining classical music and tip-top technology, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Inglis present an exploration of music from deep, dark space. The evening will include scores from Holst and Strauss and music from ‘Star Trek’, ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and ‘Thunderbirds’.

Jun 20-28: Open Buildings at Croydon Heritage Festival Over 100 events take place across the south London town at the 2015 edition of the Croydon Heritage Festival. This year’s theme is ‘famous Croydon’ meaning many events link back to the iconic faces associated with the area.

Jun 21: International Yoga Day with Tara Yoga Centre in Shoreditch Park Benefit from free yoga activities and meditation at this outdoor event which encourages as many people as possible to try out the discipline. Highlights include a ‘laughter yoga’ session, vegetarian food workshop, live music and yoga for kids.

Jun 21: Grand Medieval Joust at Eltham Palace Little ones (and maybe Monty Python fans) will love a day out at Eltham Palace over this weekend, cheering on knights as they take part in a medieval joust. To stop things from getting too scary there’s entertainment from a jester, and visitors can get a taste of medieval life in the colourful encampments.

Jun 21: Steam & Ale at the London Museum of Water and Steam Take your dad to view some truly manly machinery on Father’s Day at the London Museum of Water and Steam, who will be operating their engines and the Waterworks Railway. Local brewery Twickenham Ales will be providing beer tasters, so the trains won’t be the only things letting off steam.

Jun 22-Jul 10: City of London Festival Another packed line-up of music, comedy, dance, spoken word and street performance will make up The City of London Festival’s 53rd edition. Many of the events are free, though we recommend reserving your place in advance where possible.

Jun 25: Opening in Westfield: KidZania Already a success in nearly two dozen other countries around the world, Kidzania is a huge kids-only attraction which allows visitors to take on real-life role play activities and career paths which just happen to teach them important life skills along the way.

Jun 28: Friday Late at the V&A – Art is Good for You An evening of themed talks, performances, music, food and special installations at the grand museum. You can treat yourself to drinks from the on-site bars as you explore the current exhibitions and take part in special events. June’s event looks at how art and design can empower and transform with an evening of participatory activities.

Jun 26: Create and make: Gamer animation at the Design Museum Technology Will Save Us host this fun introduction to their DIY Gamer Kits at the Design Museum’s monthly drop-in workshops. Kids can learn how to create their own moving image by combining flicker book techniques and digital technology before heading up to see the Designs of the Year exhibition in which TWSU are nominated.

Jun 28: 20th London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival 2015 This event features 40 teams of people racing dragons down a river. Actually, they’re not real dragons. But, once you’re caught up in the thrill of the competition, the contest does have a certain magic. 2015 is the event’s twentieth year, so you can expect the celebrations to be even bigger and bolder than usual.

Jun 29-Jul 12: Wimbledon Tennis Championships Whether you’re a legitimate tennis fan or just in it for the Pimm’s and oh-so-toned players, Wimbledon Tennis Championships are once again upon us and it’s time to get excited.

Jun 29-Jul 12: Great British Summer Wimbledon Screenings If you missed out on Wimbledon tickets yet again, can’t be bothered queuing for hours to sit on Murray Mount, but fancy experiencing the tennis action as part of an ooohing and ahhhing crowd, this could be just the thing. These retro caravans fitted out with screens will be parked at various outdoor locations in the city, with complimentary deck chairs to lounge in.

Jun 30-Jul  5: Hampton Court Flower Show Hot on the heels of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show, this high-summer event takes place over 34 acres in the spectacular grounds of Hampton Court Palace and features world-class gardens as well as marquees showcasing work by some of the country’s leading designers and nurseries.

Summer Brewfest It’s a weekend festival with London breweries and food carts, under an arch of course. Not all of the breweries are confirmed yet. It’s another craft beer festival, but this one has a big outdoor bit that might make it nicer if it’s sunny. That area is always busy at the weekends.

Jun 2-20: This Is How We Die Chris Brett Bailey’s new work is an extraordinarily visceral piece of performance, a blackly hilarious, unabashedly Kerouacian piece of funny, furious beat poetry about an absurdist road trip into America’s battered heart that suddenly, unexpectedly morphs into something totally different an obliterating roar of existential sound.

Jun 2-21: Beckett Festival We’re all going Beckett mad this spring. From June 2 to 21, the Barbican will be staging nine productions spanning much of Samuel Beckett’s career in its International Beckett Season.

Jun 6-7: Field Day  Since 2007 Field Day has slowly become one of London’s very best music festivals, with a consistently excellent booking policy covering the world’s finest alternative acts.

Jun 7: Run The Jewels ‘Watch The Throne’? Pah. Ye and Hova may have the star quality, but when alternative hip hop superstars Killer Mike and El-P bring their collaborative project to London you’ll know what’s really up. Their sound is a genuine meeting of minds: El-P’s menacing, thrillingly textured, vintage-influenced beats are as spot-on as ever, and both men contribute classy, vicious bars throughout.

Jun 24-25: Mogwai The post-rock demigods celebrate 20 years together with a two-night residency at the Roundhouse.

Jun 29: FFS (Franz Ferdinand/Sparks) No-one saw this one coming, but it makes a weird kind of sense: Franz Ferdinand have joined forces with Sparks for a joint record and tour as FFS.

The Replacement

NIGHTLIFE

Jun 4, 11, 18, 25: Bogan Bingo Think bingo is boring? So do this lot, which is why they created a brilliant, bizarre, boozy and unashamedly silly alternative. Two ‘Wayne’s World’-styled hosts throw serious shapes to the likes of Bon Jovi and ‘Eye of the Tiger’ while calling the numbers.

Jun 4-Aug 28: Summer Tales A pop-up party from the Night Tales crew, featuring cocktails, street food, DJs and a jungle theme.

Jun 12: Gloria’s London, prepare to get fabulous. London’s foremost, glitter-drenched party animals Sink The Pink are back with their wildest and most debauched creation yet, Gloria. Expect a prime party fuelled by the energy, eccentricity and ethos of Sink The Pink, and soundtracked by top disco, house and funk DJs.

Jun 13: Bangface Boat Party One of the few certain truths in dance music is that industrial strength rave crew Bangface know how to party. Thus, this pirate-themed boat bash from them hosted on party vessel The Dutch Master should be all kinds of ridiculous fun.

Jun 14: Mister Sunday An eclectic all-day Sunday party bursting with disco, house, pop, blues and everything in-between. This month, Justin Carter, one half of the New York DJ duo will be on the decks and finger-licking good food will be on offer from Mama’s Jerk Chicken Station.

Jun 18: Gospeloke Absolutely no prizes for guessing what this event is all about. That’s right, it’s a gospel music-focused karaoke night – ‘Think “Sister Act” meets a school assembly via “Top of the Pops”, say the organisers.

Jun 20: Buttoned Down Disco: Midsummer’s Eve Boat Party The rip-roaring indie disco climbs aboard moored party barge Tamesis Dock. Resident DJ Christian Laing spins the usual infectious blend of electro-rock and hip hop, plus indie-pop mash-up madness, peppered with cheesy hits and student party anthems.

Jun 20: Soundcrash Boat Party You think Duran Duran enjoyed lording it up on a boat in their ‘Rio’ video? You’ll have even more fun at this boat party thanks to top promotions team Soundcrash. Just swap yacht rock and sleazy visual metaphors for genre-masher DJ Vadim blasting out hip hop, reggae and breaks.

Jun 24: Fleetmac Wood Here at Time Out, we’re big fans of Fleetmac Wood – a project dedicated to disco-leaning Fleetwood Mac re-edits which gave birth to Psychemagik’s wonderful Crystal Vision rework of ‘Dreams’ – and we’re not the only ones. Since launching in 2012, the FW crew have taken their stardust-speckled parties to tons of festivals and even to Los Angeles, as well as playing lots of great London shows.

Jun 27: Videoke Inspired by a love of music videos (and pop ephemera in general), Videoke’s team of actors and dancers aim to recreate classic pop promos before your very eyes. As well as the performances (which spring up both on stage and around the venue), punters are able to have themselves placed on classic album covers (thanks to a green screen photobooth) and get made up like their favourite stars.

Until Aug 29: Turntables A pop-up party on a canalside Hackney Wick terrace, with DJs, street food vendors and cocktails.

Jun 23-Oct 17: Serpentine Galleries Pavilion The task of transforming the lawn outside the Serpentine Gallery with a multi-purpose temporary Pavilion falls to the Spanish architectural duo SelgasCano. Their use of new technologies combined with nature conscious concepts will no doubt take inspiration from the gallery’s park location for the commission’s fifteenth anniversary.

Jun 24-Oct 25: Barbara Hepworth Tate Britain’s summer 2015 show looks to reassess the reputation of this sculptor who is forever associated with Cornwall.
