Go to Glastonbury? Or keep local, stay dry, sleep in a nice warm bed?
Getting muddy at Glastonbury this weekend? It’s obviously the icon of all festivals – but there is another way. At Pocket we like to skip the horrors of the M4, the queues for the showers, the mud up to our knees. We like to stay local and enjoy the festival spirit a bit closer to home… with the promise of a guaranteed shower and a warm bed at the end of the day! Wherever you live in London, there’s almost certainly a festival of sorts in your local area. They might not all be the Notting Hill Carnival, but small and intimate beats big and brash every time in our book (just like our flats!). We’ve done a quick scan of all the areas where our city makers are most likely to live, and come up with this roundup of London’s local festivals taking place this summer, and beyond.
