Summer is coming and it’s definitely one of my favourite seasons. The sun is shining, the trees are blossoming and I can finally bust out those pretty summer clothes.
Whilst we still are in Spring, it has given me a taste of the weather in summer and it’s making me really excited. So, here’s a list of things I’m looking forward to this summer 🙂
Although dates and venues have yet to be revealed, I’m really excited about the Outdoor Cinema. I remember the first time I went to an outdoor cinema – it rained and it was cold, but it was amazing because you can’t really complain when you get to watch Mean Girls. The number of times you can watch Mean Girls = the limit does not exist.
You can only pre-register at the moment, but once you do, you’ll be the first to know about tickets, films and other info.
It’s back! This was actually the first outdoor cinema I went to, and as I mentioned it was amazing. They have four venues in Peckham, Shoreditch, Stratford and Kensington. I’ve only been to the one in Peckham because it’s the closest, but I would love to go to the other ones.
Tickets are only £14 and they even give you a blanket when you get there. The one in Peckham boasts a bar serving unique film themed cocktails and there’s also yummy popcorn and sweet treats to indulge in.

Like I said, awesome.
This is something people who live in Dulwich, and the surrounding areas, have been waiting for since December. And now it’s finally open! I managed to take a peek on its opening day, although I have yet to watch a film in there.
The building it resides in used to be a old church hall and is actually the place where I had my 18th birthday party. So, to see it transformed into a cinema is amazing! It is completely different and what they’ve managed to do with it makes me so excited to see what it’s like to watch a film inside.
Picture House also have a membership offer, which includes: free film tickets, up to £2 discount on tickets for a year, 10% off the Member’s food and drinks and much more.
As a lover of foo, this festival is understandably something I’m looking forward to. Now in its third consecutive year, I still haven’t had a chance to go. This year, however, I will definitely find myself there.
I’m very excited for their new Tasting Theatre which introduces festival-goers to the latest foods and flavours including Raw Food, Japanese Soul and Vegan. Also, as a big fan of spicy food, I’m equally excited for the Chilli Food Market. Apparently there will be a Chilli Eating Challenge – who knows if I will enter, though? 😛
As some of you who check into my blog on a regular basis know, I’m off to New York soon! Excitement aside, I know that this is just the start of the holidays I want to take this year. I’m still hoping to go to Barcelona as a birthday celebration with Mutay in September, and of course, there are plenty other places I would love to visit as documented here.
I just know that most of my money will be going toward experiencing new cultures 🙂
