Where: Brick Lane, London
£: Free but ticketed
What is it?
Dust off your flat cap, don your best white trousers or pleated skirt and slip on your slip-ons, because for one day only London’s Brick Lane will undergo a major transformation into a professional standard bowling green, courtesy of Vauxhall Motors.
It promises to be a colourful, summery Sunday adventure complimented by top bands, dancing, lounging and stylish 4-wheeled art commissions – all inspired by the Vauxhall Motors Bowls Club of past decades.
There will be two special masters of ceremony; comedian Matt Horne (who will be playing some lovely summer tunes) and T4 presenter Rick Edwards, who will be on site all day to eat ice cream, feel the grass between his toes, have a potter on the bowls lawn and possibly adjudicate any tricky games. Some old bowls pros will be on hand to show you the ropes and help perfect your delivery with skill and finesse.
Apply for tickets now to make sure you don’t miss out on the hottest (hopefully) and laziest event of the summer.
