In Events

If you’re planning a visit to the capital during 2020, no doubt you have a long list of things you want to see and do while you’re there. There is of course, always something going on, but we thought we’d put together a few things that might interest you.

New installation on the fourth plinth

The plinths in Trafalgar Square have a lot of history to them and in recent years, the fourth plinth has been used to showcase some incredible modern art. The current sculpture is being replaced in March with a sculpture of a giant swirl of whipped cream topped with a cherry and bugs.

European Championship Games

Seven of the UEFA Europe matches are being held in Wembley this year, including the semi final and the final. Luckily for football fans, England will be playing all three of their group stage games in the city, now is the time to start searching for tickets!

The Geffryre Museum reopens with a new name

This summer the Geffyre Museum, which closed a few years ago for refurbishment is reopening as the Museum of the Home. The new entrance is directly opposite the entrance to Hoxton’s train station, so you can easily find it and aside from all the old favourites, it now has a whole host of new additions to enjoy.

Watch people swim in the sky

This isn’t as weird as it sounds, but basically, if you visit the new Embassy Gardens development in Nine Elms over the summer you’ll get the chance to see residents of the buildings using the glass swimming pool which is suspended between two high rises. It’s 25m long and completely transparent and is something to tell everyone at home about if nothing else.

Whoopi Goldberg heading for the stage

If you’re a fan of Sister Act you’ll know doubt know all about Whoopi Goldberg reprising her role as Deloris Van Cartier in the stage edition of Sister Act, but if not, you might be excited to know that she is heading to the West End for a limited run this summer!
