Hyde Park, Midsommar Lunch or a Midsommar Night-themed party in the evening… Swedish Midsommar is celebrated all over London; here are some things we can recommend.

HYDE PARK (Marble Arch) Saturday, June 22, from 1 pm – late
(*No organiser, not a ticketed event, please read below)


The Swedish Community in London has embraced the annual Midsummer gathering in Hyde Park as a cherished tradition. Friends and fellow Swedes come together with picnic spreads and drinks to revel in the festivities of Midsommar, complete with joyful dancing organised by happy volunteers. It’s often celebrated on the Saturday in London, Midsummer’s Day, but Midsummer, according to the tradition, is celebrated on Fridays in Sweden.
The “flashmob picnic” is not an organised or ticketed event but a vibrant and lively meet-up amongst the Swedish community that offers an opportunity to share our traditions with the broader London community and friends.
It’s a meet-up worth experiencing if you happen to be in London during Midsummer #smågrodorna
However, when the sun sets, the tradition continues long into the night, with drinks, dancing and performances at a venue in central London hosted by LondonSwedes. Tickets can be found on the ticket link below.
*Since this gathering is not formally organized, we kindly ask that you take your trash with you when departing and adhere to the park’s regulations. Thank you for your cooperation.
