If you are thinking about staying at a B&B in London this summer and are worried about finding cheap or free events visit during your time in the city, don’t be. There are all sorts of ways to enjoy great value entertainment throughout your stay, including the O2 London Mela festival, which this year will be celebrating its tenth birthday.

With the imminent arrival of the Olympic Games to the capital, London will be welcoming the whole world onto its doorstep in 2012. After all the sport has drawn to a close and the thousands of spectators have gone home, however, this amazing diversity will still be on show.

Taking place on Sunday 19th August in Gunnersbury Park, the London Mela is a celebration of the city’s Asian communities and heritage, hosting a fantastic variety of entertainment, including live contemporary and classical music, a traditional food market, a funfair and a children’s area. Anyone is welcome to come along to the O2 Mela, and the best part is that it’s completely free to enter! The festivities will be taking place from 1pm-9pm, so there will be plenty of time for you to explore everything that’s going on.

The London School of Economics has a great selection of comfortable and affordable London hostels for visitors to choose from. With all of our buildings in conveniently central locations, you will find that a stay at the LSE offers you great access to all that Europe’s biggest city has to offer.
