Get your diary out for summer events in Harrow

As the temperatures rise (eventually!) and we put away the big coat for a while, our thoughts turn to the fast approaching summer and, in this article, we’re taking a sneak peek at what’s in store for Harrow this year.

For the kids

Finding ways to entertain the kids during the summer months can be a challenge but luckily, Harrow has lots to offer, including:

This brilliant venue has tons on for all the family this summer, including:

  • Outdoor theatre – On Monday the 22nd of July, the Immersion Theatre will be staging an outdoor production of the much loved tale of Peter Pan. Tickets start from £12.00.
  • Eliza’s Pet Trail – Running from the 25th of July to the 1st of September, this children’s favourite challenges kids to find all kinds of weird and wonderful pets. Admission is free and prizes are awarded for the most animals found.

Stanmore Country Park

If you fancy getting out in the fresh air, Stanmore Country Park is a fantastic place for a stroll and a picnic. Kids will love spotting the deer along with other wildlife in this great part of Harrow’s conservation area. Admission and parking are free of charge.

For the adults

While there are some great children’s events going on this year, summer’s not just for the kids – in fact, our borough has some pretty cool stuff for the grown ups too, including:

Oyster Festival at The Castle

If seafood is your bag, popular pub on Harrow on the Hill, The Castle, will be holding an oyster festival on Saturday the 24th August. Taking place on the pub’s pretty upstairs terrace, guests can indulge in oysters, barbecue and live music.

Shakespeare In The Garden

Now a summer ritual in and around our borough, The Open Bar Theatre Company will once again be descending on Fullers pubs in Harrow this year. These events are always informal and fun and tickets usually cost around £18. Details of this year’s shows have not yet been announced so keep an eye on the website for more details.

Summertime in Harrow

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start filling those diaries – and, as we’ve shown in this article, Harrow has something for everyone – no matter what your taste or budget.
