It may be raining as we write this but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some more summer sunshine for the August bank holiday weekend. In the hope of sunshine, we’ve picked three of our favourite things to do in Hoxton. From rooftop drinks to online carnivals, there are plenty of activities here to enjoy while (hopefully) soaking up some sun.
Rooftop Film Club
The popular Queen Of Hoxton Rooftop Film club knows exactly what we’re looking for this summer and are satisfying our film fix with their new Alexandra Palace drive in cinema venue! From cult classics like The Goonies to modern day thrillers Parasite and Get Out, and of course a few timeless classics thrown in for good measure like Breakfast At Tiffany’s, there is something for everyone in this fantastical cinematic line up.
Of course, there are popcorn and movie treats available to purchase from your vehicle but we love the idea of packing a picnic feast. Tickets are available here from £29.50 per vehicle, plus a special discount for NHS workers.
Fancy a Shuffle?
Hoxton has thrown us a wildcard and we love it! The London Shuffle is one of the most fun, addictive and socially competitive activities you can do. Take your pick and play on the indoor Shuffle Lanes or Tables, or choose to head upstairs and hang out on the rain-proof terrace complete with Shuffle Lanes, seated areas and Airstream cocktail bar – what more could you want?!
They are even offering a Bottomless Shuffle Brunch taking you right through the bank holiday weekend. Tickets are available online here for the weekend brunch sessions.
Notting Hill Carnival: Access All Areas
As we all know, the famous Notting Hill Carnival that would normally be the highlight of many Londoners’ August bank holiday weekend has been cancelled for 2020. However, this year the Carnival is coming direct to your home online. Invite your friends, dig out your most colourful costumes and host a sizzling summer party to experience the carnival live in your home
