Mercato Metropolitano in London’s south-east is a decent Italian market, to say the least. You’ll find cured hams, cheeses, tasty cocktails, and even a pop-up cinema with a jungle theme to boot. They’re usually playing exciting classic films and should be around for the duration of the month. You can find it at 42 Newington Causeway, SE1 6DR.
London Shuffle Club
Henry VIII may have popularised it, but the shuffleboard had been around in England since at least the early 1500s. It was so popular with the masses at one point that the government banned it, to encourage people to return to work once again.
Shuffleboarding is back, and it’s better than ever. The London Shuffle Club is open in Brick Lane until the end of the year, and promises a wild time for anyone who’s ready to try their hand at one of the most addictive games of all time.
Barullo is a festival by Wines of Argentina taking place in Holborn this month; JJ studios will be filled with over 40 Argentinian wine producers. The ticketed experience includes a meal by Argentinian Mauro Colagreco, owner of the 6th best restaurant on the planet. There’ll be art from Buenos Aires’s greatest gallery, and even music from some amazing native bands so that it might get fairly pricey.
London Comic Con
ComicCon is a grand worldwide event. This year it's taking place in the famous Excel Exhibition Centre in East London, inviting throngs of cosplayers to enact their comic-themed fantasies amidst revelry and celebration. There will be plenty of stalls, exhibitions, and probably quite a few movie stars to see.
The venue is at Royal Victoria Dock, E16 1XL.
Great folk musicians are usually hard to come by, but this month you should find plenty at London's Campfire Club, a little home-made wine & mead-supplemented singalong event taking place in numerous locations across the capital. Tickets are cheap!
