Afterwards, you can dance the day away during guest appearances from some of London’s top DJs with sets from Jamie Lisa and Liverat and Jolyon alongside the famous Saxman! If you don’t feel like brunching, just get yourself a ticket for entry to the party at noon, it’ll be worth it. Entry opens at 10.30am, 9th July. Tickets start at £17.50.

On 17th June, the crew at ByDay ByNight are taking over Shapes – a unique arts and events space set in a converted warehouse on the River Lea – to put on one of the liveliest summer solstice celebrations in the capital! Celebrating 5 years of “The House of Disco”, you can expect a myriad of sounds across the spectrum of disco, funk, house and soul classics, all led by deeper underground sounds into the night. There’ll be BBQ food from some of London’s favourite stalls, as well of plenty of summer cocktails to perfectly compliment the solstice festivities! Advance tickets are £18.

4. Boat Party & After Party @ Fire
Nothing quite says summer like a party on a boat. On the 17th and 24th June, you can step onboard, set sail on the Thames and get rocky. Tickets are only £10 here! Not much to pay at all, considering the unforgettable views across the river, fantastic DJs and fully stocked bars (they need to be when you’re out on the water). The pick up point will be Westminster Pier at 8pm(and the boat leaves on the dot.) The cruise lasts until 11.45pm, where you’ll be dropped off at Milbank Pier and invited to make your way to Fire club, to continue the party until 6am (if you can).

5. Banana Pub Crawl
Thinking about a pub crawl may be enough on its own to make your body hurt, however, the thought of doing a pub crawl following a human banana changes EVERYTHING. The guys at the Banana Pub Crawl ensure that you have side-splitting laughs. And for only £10, there’s be no slipping on any skins! You’ll visit 4 watering holes, where you’ll be furnished with a shot in each venue and can enjoy the best discounts on selected drinks. After all this mischief, you’ll end up in a central London club. The best thing? It all counts as one of your five a day.
