Unmissable Things to Do in London in June 2017

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Ah, June… the month of strawberries and cream, Glastonbury downpours, the longest day and – if the sun comes out – the shortest shorts!

This month’s top picks include crazy cabaret weirdos, sci-fi fun, prancing in parks, outdoor film screenings, daring new performance art & much more… oh, and the chance to vote Labour for a fairer society.
