The highlight of this weekend is The Mayor's Thames Festival in which Boris gets another chance to show Londoners a good time. We've really been spoiled with events this summer and as part of this festival there are loads of events happening all over the weekend including fireworks display, arts events and much more.

Last chance this weekend to see the classic The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, in Kensington Gardens at the purpose built 360 theatre.

It's also your last chance to catch the Beautiful Games exhibition at Museum of Childhood in which children can learn about the history of sport and throw some moves on the excellent electronic dance floor which had mine entertained for hours.
