Not much in life is free especially in London but Im pleased to report that the excellent British Summer Time Open House festival is back again this year in London’s Hyde Park and the best part is its again completely free to enter.
BST Open House is a week of free summer activities, in-between the two weekends of huge (ticketed) live music concerts.
Highlights last year for us were the open air movie screenings (again totally free!) and of course the Birra Moretti The Gran Tour which not only has Moretti serving up their beer but also a great mini street food market setup around their bars to go with it.
Two films will be shown each evening at 5.30pm and 8.30pm. Entry is free on a first-come-first-served basis and headphones are provided
