Summer in the Courtyard

01 - 31 Aug 2024

Please note that the fountains will be switched off on the following dates: 17 Aug, 24 - 26 Aug

Edmond J. Safra
Fountain Court

A series of free and affordable events and activities running throughout the summer holidays with community and family at its heart.

The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court sits at the heart of Somerset House and is one of the capital’s most beautiful and inclusive public spaces.  For the month of August, the courtyard offers an unparalleled location to relax and soak up the sunshine away from the bustle of the city.

On weekdays, we're welcoming everyone to the courtyard, providing a space for families to enjoy the sunshine alongside workshops, food & drink pop-ups and our magnificent fountains, switched on from 01 - 31 August (excepting the following dates: 17 Aug and 24 - 26 Aug)

Then at weekends, we’re excited to present a series of live events and performances from established creatives and grassroot communities with inclusivity at their heart.
