This weekend we traveled to Victoria Park for The Rekorderlig Midsummer House. Coming from the South West we took the Central line from Bank to Bethnal Green and then wandered up to Victoria Park from there. The park is lovely, it's not one I've visited before so we explored a little en route to the Midsummer House.
We found the Swedish house nestled by the side of the lake near the pagoda. When you went in the house was decked out with Ikea furniture - ahh those comfy chairs! The bar and photo-booth. (Yes we got some crazy photos..)!
Whilst outside were giant bean bag sun loungers which we nabbed as we were early. The place filled up, as time went on. The ticket allowed us entry from 12-5, with an evening session from 6.00-11.00pm, which would have been great bit we had plans. Besides this way we could enjoy the summer sun.
Tickets were £10 per person, which included a first drink of Rekorderlig and some tasters from the BBQ. We were given little tokens for this.
There was a huge choice of Rekorderlig cider to choose from. In fact I didn't realise there was such a selection of flavours. I chose mango & raspberry and the boy had apple & blackcurrant.
There were also cocktails which I definitely would have opted for if it was the evening.
Food glorious food..
I went for the vegetarian BBQ option, a cheese and parsley sort of sausage (I can't remember exactly what it was called unfortunately), topped with a lovely berry compote and roasted onions.
We had a really good afternoon, the sun came out which was just perfect and the atmosphere at the Midsummer House was nice and chilled. I'd definitely look out for future events like this. Plus I'm drawn to visiting Sweden even more now.
