Our Tuesday slot in which we point you in the direction of other great happenings and events in our great city. A new exhibition, a gig, a museum, a pop-up-shop – the best of London within a few minutes of a London Walks walking tour.
Go to The Proms.
The Proms (short for promenade concert) is an annual festival of music at the Royal Albert Hall. Inclusive and affordable, most of the concerts get booked up very quickly, but the floor of the vast auditorium is set aside for promenaders – standing room tickets – available on the day of the performance. This is where the party is. It all starts in the queue itself, which has an atmosphere all its own.
Proms highlights this week include Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending at 6:30pm on Wednesday 13th…
