What's on this month - August
August is the epicentre of the summer. Make sure you hit one of the many brilliant events, exhibitions or festivals that we’ve rounded up below. Or make the most of the summer nights at one of these top London rooftop bars, or grab your swimsuit and hit one of Southend's best beaches. And even if the weather doesn’t play ball there’s plenty to keep you and any little ones off on school holidays entertained - so you can make it a summer to remember not matter what.

Summer in Southend
Southend Carnival, 19 August
Southend's big colourful annual carnival is a more relaxed alternative to Nottinghill with the added bonus of being by the seaside. Over 20,000 people will be shimmying their way in a procession of floats along the seafront. Expect amazing costumes, music and an electric atmosphere.
National Rollercoaster Day, 16 August
Celebrate your love of rollercoasters with a trip to Adventure Island on the Southend seafront. Have a whirl around their Green Scream ride - which holds the Guinness World Record for the number of naked people riding a rollercoaster. But you'll be expected to keep your clothes on.
