FESTIVAL AT GISBURNE PARK
The UK’s first purpose built socially-distanced festival is taking place in the Lancashire countryside for eight weeks with big name DJs, live entertainment, open-air cinema, family fun and on-site glamping – making it the perfect staycation or day trip for fun-loving Brits this summer.
Taking place from July 11 to August 30 2020, the new Gisburne Park Pop Up, will take place on the Gisburne Park Estate: a historic Grade I-listed, 1,000-acre private estate within the Ribble Valley. Festival-goers can purchase day passes or multi-day glamping tickets with 24,000 attendees expected over the eight weeks.
Up to 480 festival goers will attend each event and will book their own individual hexagonal pitch, each large enough for a social bubble of six and spaced 2.6m apart. Drinks and food are delivered by waiters to the hexagonal pitches, eliminating the need for queuing. A one-way system ensures guests can make their way around the 10-acre site with a minimum of 2m physical distance between themselves and other guests.
CAMDEN MARKET UNLOCKED
Camden Market in London will host a series of free open-air performances in July and August, in what will be some of the first live performances since lockdown began in March.
The Stables Market Amphitheatre will host eight outdoor performances from 25 July to 16 August, under the name Camden Unlocked. A single act will perform every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The performances are free, but require ‘ordering’ from EventBrite in order to ensure capacity is not exceeded.
On the line-up are acoustic sets from Miles Kane, Shaun Escoffery, Stone Foundation, Sons of Pitches, Newton Faulkner, John Power, Mae Muller and The Puppini Sisters, along with DJ sets by Don Letts, Shiine On and Solar Radio.

COMMUTE TO WORK IN THE FRESH AIR? ON AN OPEN TOP BUS!
Feeling nervous about getting on the tube or bus again to commute to work? Not fit or traffic-aware enough to cycle? There may be another way.
While London is empty of tourists, those open-top buses that usually ferry them round the capital’s sightseeing hotspots are sitting idle. But now The Original Tour wants to use its 200-strong fleet to take you and your neighbours to work. Travel crowdsourcing platform Snap will employ the buses to provide commuter routes between popular transport hubs. It has trialled a journey from Walthamstow that shadows the Victoria line, with forthcoming routes dependent on demand.
Prospective passengers can register their home and work destinations on the Snap website, and as soon as there are about 20 people interested in making the same journey, a bus route will be put into action. There’s an app that commuters can use to track the arrival time of their ride, which will also enable contact tracing, and fares for each trip will depend on how many seats are occupied.
The buses will offer a socially distanced, contact-free experience in the fresh air. Thomas Ableman, founder of Snap, said: ‘This crisis requires fresh thinking and open-top buses are the perfect way to get people into the office in safety and comfort.’
GO BOAT LONDON
This month we managed to get out and experience GoBoat London, it was great fun and such a nice way to see London from a different angle. GoBoat is the fun self-drive boating experience. You are the captain, you choose the route. With no boating experience necessary, gain access to the unseen side of central London as you charter the waterways. A little hard to control when it’s windy, but that just adds to the fun.
Each eco-friendly electric GoBoat can seat up to 8 people around a sociable picnic table. With the option to hire for the boat for 1, 2 or 3 hours, the different packages give you access to different areas. From Little Venice and through the Maida Hill Tunnel to a journey along the Regent’s Canal as far as Camden Lock, this is the ideal activity for a sunny day.
Don’t forget to bring your picnic!
