Successfully launched in 2015, the Embankment Summer Market, part of the Northbank Summer Festival programme of events makes a return this year on Friday 15th July to Sunday 17th July. Held at the scenic Embankment Gardens on London’s Northbank between Embankment Station and the Royal Courts of Justice and Somerset House, here are four reasons to consider attending this free and unique three-day event which attracted more than 15,000 people last year:

1. Browse and shop the City Showcase Market that will bring together 190 handpicked emerging artisans, artists, fashion and jewellery designers.

2. Eat delicious food via a wide selection of street vendors (British, Thai, Italian, American, etc.) and Farmer’s Market.

3. Play games like giant Jenga and croquet with your family and friends.

4. Listen to live music and entertainment from over 50 artists, bands and musicians from across the musical spectrum.
