June arrives in London this weekend, bringing with it lots of fun events and – hopefully – some sunshine too!

Toast Festival, Shoreditch

Shoreditch plays host to a thoughtful celebration of London’s dining culture this weekend, as the Toast Festival comes to town. Raising money for charity Action Against Hunger, the festival features talks by culinary luminaries such as Jeremy Lee and the Bompass and Parr team, as well as tastings, workshops and even an after party. Entry to the festival area, with its associated food stands and pop-up shop, is free, but tickets are required for talks and workshops. See the festival website for full details. 1-2 Jun 

The Soho Flea Market

Soho’s Dean Street will be closed to traffic on Sunday, as a range of artists, designers and craftsmen take over the street with stalls displaying their wares. Between 12pm to 8pm visitors can browse the unique stands and enjoy a variety of music and comedy performed on the outdoor stage. More information. 2 Jun

Ship Hats at the Cutty Sark 

Head to the Cutty Sark’s family fun weekend for a chance to learn about millinery and naval history. In honour of the fact that the ship once sailed under the Portugese flag as the Ferreira, the museum is inviting families to make spectacular ship hats in their special workshop, which can then be worn on Portugal Day on 10 June. The workshops are free with Cutty Sark entry (£12 for adults) and take place between 11.30am and 1.30pm, and 2pm to 4pm. 1-2 Jun
