Men's afternoon tea party at 108
In a twist on a traditional afternoon tea, 108 Pantry is launching an exclusive men’s afternoon tea special, available until Sunday 21 June. Expect an array of hearty treats, steak sandwiches, pork and black truffle sausage rolls, sweets and doughnuts, all served with a manly pint of Guinness. Tickets from £28 per person.
Kopparberg Urban Forest
The Scandinavian-themed musical forest is back for another year in Hackney Wick. Hosted by the Swedish cider, Kopparberg Urban Forest offers live music, a lot of cider and street food from Mama's Jerk, Buffalo Joe and Le Bun. Running Wednesday to Saturday from now until Sunday 12 July, there's some big names on the line-up including Katy B and the Cuban Brothers. Entry is free!
The Grub Club throws open its doors at the Doodle Bar's waterside terrace, with live blues, Cajun and gypsy jazz music. This weekend it's an Italian summer-solstice celebration with a long boozy lunch on the water. Tickets from the Grub Club website.
Taste of London
Taste of London is back for another fantastic year this weekend in Regent's Park. Get ready for the gastronomic Glastonbury, with talks from Marcus Wareing, Monica Galetti, Atul Kochhar and Nuno Mendes. Taster portions will be available from high-profile London eateries such as The Clove Club, Ember Yard, Duck & Waffle and Roka, plus live cooking demonstrations, classes and more samples than your jeans can manage. Tickets from £14.
Forza Win in Peckham kicks off its summer project from tonight right through to September. Think big table Italian dining, wood fired grills, everyone sitting together, paying the same price and sharing the same meal. All their food is grown and reared in the UK. They reckon "it's possible to be kind to the planet, not break the bank and have lots of fun doing it". We'll definitely be down there finding out.
