The best free events this weekend 31 July – 2 August
By Manolis Zografakis
There are several interesting free things to do in London this weekend. It’s the last Friday of the month so several galleries and art spaces in South London open their doors till late and they offer art tours and special events. Moreover, on Friday Johnny Borrell & Zazou are performing at Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston and the event is free but remember to have a ‘mandala’ with you in order to get in without paying. On Saturday, there is a free Latin festival at Nursery Row Park in Elephant & Castle as well as the launch of the Rich Mix Youth Takeover Festival with free workshops, music events and more. Finally on Sunday, the street community festival Brixton Splash returns to the heart of Brixton to celebrate its tenth birthday and it’s a must attend event. So, without further ado we present our Top 5 Free Events in London this weekend 31 July – 2 August 2015. By the way, if our top 5 isn’t enough for you have a look at the Top 10 Free events this month and the free film screenings in July.
