BLOOMSBURY WC1 | OUTSIDE RUSSELL SQUARE TUBE STATION

Dine al fresco

Stroll along the plaza and choose from a tempting range of worldwide cuisines, including Carluccio’s, Giraffe, Las Iguanas, Nando’s, GBK and Yo! Sushi.

Be the headline act this festival season

The festival season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than by investing in some stand-out summer fashion. Whether you’re the proud owner of tickets or not, these feel-good festival pieces will make sure you stand out from the crowd. So, grab the glitter, let’s go!

 

At River Island, there’s so much more going on than denim shorts and band tees. This year, don some pom-poms and get print-happy with a range of eye-catching seasonal designs. Choose easy-wearing crop tops and fail-safe sandals, and top it all off with a limited edition baseball cap (sequins a must)!

 

The party continues at New Look, where there’s a denim creation for every eventuality. Here, floaty, colourful cover-ups meet chunky, metallic anoraks, and leather-style jackets meet sheer crop tops. Don’t forget accessories, from face jewels to jewelled trainers and even jewelled cat ears – it’s time to get your sparkle on.

 

For ultimate summer vibes, head to Oasis where this season, flamingos and palm trees rule the roost. Choose floaty fabrics and soft, summery colours, or have some fun with wide-legged playsuits and seaside stripes. And no festival outfit is complete without a stunning pair of sunnies – for all the latest styles from your favourite brands, including Cath Kidston, Superdry and Converse, head to Specsavers at the Brunswick.
