With two Bank Holidays and festivals-a-plenty, there’s lots to do in the capital this May.

Here are 5 events to check out.

 

Days of Poland Festival

Held at Potters Fields Park, Southwark, on Sunday 6th May, Days of Poland is the largest Polish festival in the UK.

Visitors will be able to enjoy traditional cuisine, live music and entertainment from prominent Polish performers.

The festivities kick off at 1pm and admission is free.

 

Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF)

This 16-day arts festival brings together more than 170 events and workshops including dramatic readings, concerts and stand-up routines.

The Fringe is set across different venues in Wandsworth, Balham, Putney, Tooting, Battersea and Nine Elms, and begins on Friday 4th May.

Balance Festival

Londoners can take part in cutting-edge fitness classes and try delicious healthy foods at Balance, a 3-day celebration of food, fitness, wellness and travel.

Taking place from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th May at the Old Truman Brewery, visitors can also discover the latest innovative wearable tech and get some travel inspo for their next adventure.

 

Open Air Theatre

If you prefer to enjoy theatre productions under the stars then head to Regent Park, where the Open-Air Theatre season gets underway this month.

The season kicks off with the Oliver Award-nominated Peter Pan, which runs from 17th May to June 15th.

 

The Chelsea Flower Show

Nothing quite captures the imagination of green-fingered Brits than the Chelsea Flower Show, and this year promises some bloomin’ good displays.

This year’s theme is health and well-being, focusing on how plants and green spaces can have a positive impact on our lives.

This year, organisers have extended the opening times for the Friday show and announced The Chelsea Late Event, an evening of live music and food.

The Chelsea Flower show starts on Tuesday 22nd May and runs until Saturday 26th May.
