Enjoy a feast of festival fun in London

Whether it is food, comedy, music or art, one thing is for sure - there will be a festival dedicated to it taking place in London in the next few months.
 
For lovers of surreal art, a good place to start is the Streatham Festival, which sees both emerging and well-established artists create surreal and fictional version of Streatham through a number of exciting and varied performances.
 
Names such as Eleanor J Wright and Katherine Foster may not be familiar to most people, however, after taking in their work and that of others, you will come away with a new-found appreciation of the work of some of the UK's most talented and promising artists.
 
One name that will be familiar to many people is Bobby Womack. A titan in the world of jazz, soul and blues, Bobby Womack has been making music for over 50 years and he will be one of the many musicians performing at the Walthamstow Garden Party.
 
Taking place in Lloyd Park, the event is the work of the Barbican Centre and will also include shows from renowned reggae artist Tiken Jah Fakoley, a theatre and dance stage and various refreshments for you to enjoy.
 
If you have never had the pleasure of seeing dragon boat racing then this summer is the perfect time to cross that off your list of things to do.
 
Held by the London Chinatown Lions Club, the event involves martial arts displays, live music performances and a food festival in addition to the main highlight, which is the race itself.
 
For fashionistas, one event not to be missed is the Huguenots Threads Festival. This showcase takes place in Spitalfields, one of the trendiest and fashion-conscious parts of the capital.
 
The festival will journey into Spitalfields' fashion history and focus on the silk-spinners who helped put the area on the map many years ago. There will be more than 35 events taking place, many of which are free, so for those with a love of fashion, history or both, this is something not to be missed.
 
If you have green fingers, the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show is a must. Some stunning gardens can be enjoyed among many other highlights, while there will also be the opportunity to buy plants and flowers and top-of-the-range gardening equipment.
 
Sticking with the natural world, why not pay a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and take in the Plantasia extravaganza? Billed as an opportunity for people to experience the life-enhancing power of plants, the exhibition will provide a feast of botanical wonders to excite the senses.
 
Other highlights to look forward to include the Barefoot Walk, Tai Chi sessions and Plant Family Croquet.
 
Last but by no means least is the More London Free Festival, which provides visitors to the capital with outstanding live performances of music, dance and much more.
 
Whatever your interest, you can be sure that your needs will be taken care of in London this summer, so why not act now and secure your place at one of the capital's many festival delights?
