Dogs Unite for Guide Dogs

Saturday the 14th of June

Animal lovers and dog owners alike will enjoy the Dogs Unite charity dog walk in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with all proceeds going to guide dog charities. The event promises dog shows, demonstrations, Scruffts heats and opportunities to meet some super guide dogs and their trainers – there will even be a few surprise celebrities and their canine companions. Plus, each participating pup will receive a superhero cape and a goody bag!

Trooping the Colour: The Queen’s Birthday Parade

Saturday the 14th of June

Are you a proud patriot? You can watch the Queen’s Birthday parade along the Mall, or from the edge of St James’s Park for free! This patriotic pageantry doesn’t take place on Her Majesty’s actual birthday (which is on April 21), but on her official birthday, a Saturday in June more likely to provide decent weather for the proceedings. Take a picnic, take your camera, and take your Union Jack memorabilia!
