Underbelly, 6th May – 31st July

Dubbed London’s original cultural pop-up festival, don’t miss this opportunity to see some top tier performances.

As one of London’s more affordable live entertainment festivals, it caters to all ages and theatre tastes. You can also enjoy their exciting outdoor area, which includes a host of award-winning food and drink pop-ups. 

Shakespeare in the Squares, 15th June – 8th July

Did you know their patron is Dame Judi Dench? This isn’t one to miss… 

Kew the Music, 5th – 10th July

Not only can you spend a day wandering around Kew’s fabulous gardens, you’re also able to delve into one of their evening concerts. Bring a picnic blanket and sit back to enjoy huge names in music. This year, you can see James Blunt, Van Morrison and even Gipsy Kings. Count us in.

And did you know The Moorings, our luxury development of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments, is situated in a prime location in Brentford Lock and just one stop away from Kew Bridge?!

With a stunning communal rooftop where we just hosted “Yoga on the Roof” for our residents, modern interiors and larger than life private balconies for every home.. what are you waiting for?
