Shop late at Covent Garden this July

Head to Covent Garden for late night shopping this month, as stores in the area stay open until 9pm on Wednesdays through Saturdays throughout July for Covent Garden After Hours.

Special events take place on Thursdays, with live music, art, fashion and beauty, and street food from Frenchie, Balthazar Boulangerie and LIMA Floral. There's a gin bar from Portobello Road Gin, and brand offers from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Hackett, Karen Millen and Kate Spade.    

On Wednesday, live artworks will be created in the Piazza by artist Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, and on Thursday the Beauty Spot takes over, with make-up masterclasses and brand offers.

On 14 July, acoustic music performances come to the piazza, and it's all about men's fashion on 21 July. The final Thursday event, on 28 July, features a curated gallery of photos of London at dusk.
