If you’ve been planning an international relocation to London for 2011, can you believe it’s September already??!! Me neither. Well, if you’ve indeed already made the London move by this summer, then all hassle of finding and settling into an apartment is hopefully behind you now (well, not at all a “hassle” if you wisely used London Relocation’s services and were hand-held through every step by one of our relocation agents). In that event, here are some goings-on around the city this fine month that you can finally step out and enjoy!

This Saturday, 10 September, alone has a handful of events:

BBC Proms in the Park – The BBC Proms have been going on ever since 15 July over at South Kensington’s Royal Albert Hall. The final performance this Saturday will be broadcast on giant screens in the nearby Hyde Park to accommodate a larger viewing public. (for more infowww.bbc.co.uk/proms)

The Mayor’s Thames Festival – In celebration of London and the River Thames, the Mayor is hosting this annual festival, the largest of its kind in the city. It includes everything from arts, music, dancing, food, fireworks, and other entertainment, a good time for singles and families alike joining to pay homage to history, present, and future.

Gail’s Garden Party – If the little foodie in you is craving good eats in one of the loveliest neighborhoods, this Hampstead food festival is in the spirit of bringing the community together and supporting local high street butchers, fishmongers, green grocers, and cheesemongers. A time for coming together and interacting, with music and facepainting to boot! (for more infowww.gailsbread.co.uk)

Whatever you’re up to this month, make it a fun one! Sure, the weather is cooling down and feeling very autumnal, but don’t let that demotivate you—we’ll be putting up with it for months to come, so beat the grey-sky blues now. And if you haven’t made your relocation yet, contact our Relocation agents so they can make that move a swift one and get you closer to enjoying what the city constantly has going on. 🙂
