Three day event at Potters Field Park, Tower Bridge celebrating the best that Rioja has to offer.

Swedish Midsummer Celebrations – events across London on Saturday
Hopefully we’ll find lots of herring at the celebrations listed by the Swedish Embassy, including a picnic in Hyde Park on Saturday the 26th near Speaker’s Corner.
New restaurant openings across London include Cantina Laredo, (bills itself as gourmet Mexican food) Gelupo, (gelato offshoot of Bocca di Lupo) and Trullo, (Italian in Islington already getting great reviews).
