Sunday 1st July: Bold Tendencies - The Opening

One of my favourite days of the Summer is the opening of Bold Tendencies sculpture park in Peckham.    To feel that I have experienced a full Summer I like to have danced till dawn in a festival field (preferably Glastonbury), danced all day at Notting Hill Carnival and also watched the sun set over London at the end of the day from Hannah Barry's open air gallery.  It's an annual pilgrimage for waves of the city's artists who arrive and flood up the floors of the disused multi-story car park to celebrate another season of the showcase.  Its a community led initiative with free entry and a full programme of events that include film screenings and concerts.  There is also the added highlight of Franks Cafe and Campari Bar for refreshments between checking out the seven artists work and incredible picturesque panoramic view of the new Shard injected sky.  Its the sixth year of the enterprise, so if you havn't yet been its an absolute must, open from 12 noon until 10pm Thursday to Sunday until 30th September.  See here for full details.
