Underbelly Festival on South Bank
September in London can be rather sporadic in its temperature, which is why events such as the Underbelly Festival are so useful for a sporadic day. Not only do they have an outside beer garden, rife with atmosphere, great cider and live music, but they also play host to the unmissable (in that you literally can’t miss it) inflatable cow, the Udderbelly venue. In this unique venue, some of the best in live performance play. Whether that be family friendly comedy, cabaret performances or some of the best stand ups on the circuit, the Underbelly Festival is not only a great meeting place near Piccadilly Circus, but the perfect evening out.
Japan Matsuri Month
Celebrate one of Japan’s most famous festivals on 30th of September. The Matsuri festival in Japan consists of street parties, parades and music, and whilst the London version is designated to Trafalgar Square, you can still get a great taste of what this unique festival means and represents to the Japanese culture. This one is definitely not one to miss, especially if visiting with family, due to the wide range of traditional games, dresses and music being displayed in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
