Summer programme concludes as Camden Sentido continues
With the end of the summer holidays on the horizon, make the most of activities across the borough this weekend and find out how much more there is in store throughout the year.
The Paralympics opens in Rio de Janeiro next week and, to celebrate, our special programme celebrating all things Brazil continues. Upcoming events include free walking tours and a family fun day, so keep your eye on the Camden Sentido listings for the latest updates.
Get active by exploring your local area
Have an uplifting weekend with a free session of Yoga at Alexandra Park Road, 11am, on Saturday 3 September. Bring a towel or a yoga mat if you have one and wear something comfortable to stretch in. The class is suitable for all levels.
You can get moving more in Camden all year round, with activities including group exercise classes, swimming (women's only classes and free sessions for over 60s are available), children’s activities and nine outdoor gyms, so you can exercise while enjoying the fresh air. Or why not explore one of the borough's 69 parks and open spaces? Make time for a late summer walk, take part in a free health walk or follow a trail, such as the Waterlow Park Tree Trail.

Get inspired in Camden
With Monday the start of a new term, this could be the perfect time to find a class to support your child’s learning, or to find a new talent yourself at one of the many classes and workshops available place all year round.
If you're looking for inspiration, did you know that Camden has one of the highest proportions of museums in London, with 13 within a mile distance of The British Museum? There are exhibitions, talks, and family events taking place throughout the year, as well as some of the best live performances, screenings, festivals and family fun days at venues across the borough, plus events at our libraries.
Tomorrow (2 September) marks the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London, so head to Royal College of Physicians for Fetch out of the Fire, a free exhibition of surviving artefacts, which runs from today until 16 December.
If you're not ready to say goodbye to the summer, come along to Fitzrovia Street Party and Community Dinner on Saturday 3 September. There will be entertainment by local young people, free food and lots of games and activities for all ages between 3 and 6pm.
Although the sun may be setting on our summer programme, there's plenty to discover all year round in Camden.
