Ikea Wembley to host traditional Swedish Midsummer party

Anyone looking to celebrate solstice this weekend need look no further than a traditional Swedish Midsummer party in Neasden.

Ikea Wembley, in Drury Way, is hosting three days of activities to bring some Swedish traditions into the borough from Friday to Sunday.

Come and take part in some Midsummer Olympics, with ring Frisbee, ball toss and a hammering block contest for the chance to win food and summer activity hampers.

Visitors can also make their own flower garlands, while street food vendors will dish up a wide variety of Swedish food, including prinskory (prince sausages), herring and strawberry cakes and crisp breads.

All activities are free. June 19 - 21 Friday: 10am-10pm, Saturday: 9am-10pm, Sunday: 11am-5pm
