Summer Festivals London 2015

Hi all,

We're feeling like summer over here at family cakes, we're already looking forward to all of the music festivals coming up in London this month. Here we have our top 5 music festivals for the month of June!
And if you're not into music festivals scroll down for some nice summery cakes because who doesn't like cakes, right?

1. Spitalfields Summer Festival - June 2nd to 16th @Spitalfields Market
This is the 39th year of the Spitalfiels Summer Festival, highlights include: Emily Hall, Shabaka Hutchings and La Nuova Musica. There are even little performances in historic Huguenot houses and the Tower of London with a bit more intimate atmosphere. So, if you're interested check their website for bookings.

2.  Bushstock Festival - June 13th @ Shepherds Bush
This cool festival has often showcased the best up and coming music artists. Artists like Bastille, Hozier, and George Ezra have performed here and now highlights include Bad Suns, Hozier (again), and Villagers. The cheaper tickets are sold out but for 30 pounds you can still get yourself a ticket, it's certainly worth it.

3. Cally Festival - June 14th @ Caledonian Road
For one day only each year Caledonian Road is closed down to throw a huge party. A lot of people come to celebrate, there's music, performances, art, food, and other activities. A huge recommendation from us, it is really close to the family cakes office, therefore we always go every year.

4. British Summer Time - June 18th to 27th @ Hyde Park
For the 3rd year in a row, Hyde Park becomes the place to be for some of the biggest stars! Not only in music but comedy/performing arts as well. They've got all the music genres covered, from indie with the Strokes all the way to the pop sensation Taylor Swift. There's even an outdoor film festival that's for free with a Street Food Market and other fun activities to do. So go check it out, you will not regret it!

5. London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival - June 28th @ London Regatta Center
Dragon boat racing originated some 2,500 years ago in central China, and today it's still a very popular water sport in China as well as other countries. Definitely worth a visit if you want to experience some Chinese culture, and donate to a good cause. This year they will be donating to Chinese schools around the M25 area.

And now for some dashing cakes to steal the show:

How about a refreshing strawberry cake, perfect to bring to a summer picnic at the park!

This cake definetely is the perfect combination of chocolate and fresh summer berries! 

Or this summery cake which will make every child happy!

Winter's a good time to stay in and cuddle
But put me in summer and I'll be a ..... happy snowman!

What goes better with a glass (or two..) of sparkly prosecco than white chocolate and summer fruits? 

...and something for our crazy cake lovers!

But now, we let you enjoy the beginning of summer while the weather is cooperating!
