all’s fayre Lashings of community spirit come courtesy of Marylebone Summer Fayre this month, hosted by the Howard de Walden Estate. The village fête is always a local highlight, with live music performances, food stalls and plenty of children’s activities (including a petting zoo) in and around Marylebone village and nearby open spaces. As well as being a celebration, the Summer Fayre also raises money and awareness for charity Kids Company.

28 June, Marylebone High Street, W1U

on good form Our fascination with beauty has long been reflected in art – not least by the Ancient Greeks, for whom the human body was an object of splendour and meaning. Defining Beauty at The British Museum explores the relationship between the Greek world and the human form in an exhibition showcasing various depictions of beauty throughout time. From abstract prehistoric figurines to the marble sculptures characteristic of Alexander the Great, head over to catch a glimpse of the world’s most important collections of sculpture first hand.

Green fingers You’ve mowed the lawn and dusted the cobwebs off the patio furniture, but if your back garden still looks a little uninspiring, then head to contemporary garden fair Grow London, which returns to Hampstead Heath this month. 100 exhibitors will showcase everything from stylish garden chairs to hand-forged tools and pots and planters, so there will be plenty of ideas on how to spruce up your foliage.

From 19-21 June, Hampstead Heath, NW3
