It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get ready to get stuck into August, Clapham. Here’s what you should be doing this month…
Become a master pasta chef in a night
When: 2nd , 9th, 16th, 20th August
Where: Osteria Mbare, SW4 7SS
If you’ve been to Osteria Mbare then you’ll know that they know a thing or two when it comes to pasta. Theirs is really, really good. Now they’re sharing their skills with you at their Wednesday evening masterclasses where you will make (and eat) your very own pasta and appetiser. You can also opt in for bottomless bubbles or a wine pairing on the night to really get the full experience.
Workout for free
When: 5th August
Where: Clapham Common, SW4 9DE
Getting a workout in in London can be a pricey business. But the team at Thrive are letting you workout under the guide of professional trainers for free. They’ll take to the Common and put you through your paces (no matter what your ability you’ll be welcomed here). It’s the perfect place for getting a sweat on as well as meeting a community of like-minded fitness friends.
When: 10th August
Where: Lane Eight Coffee, SW4 0HY
Join the coolest run club in town and head over to Lane Eight on the 10th at 7pm for a sundowner run with loads of other runners.

This run club is getting more and more popular by the minute, so expect to see lots of faces (and abilities) turn up!
Chase the sun
When: 16th August
Where: Clapham Common, SW4 9DE
Choose either a 5km or 10km run around Clapham Common as the sun goes down. The race kicks off at 7pm so you’ll get to enjoy the park in all its dusky glory, plus these Run Through races will get you a medal, water and post race treats to celebrate your achievement too.
Fasten your seatbelts

Party on a Sunday
When: 20th August
Where: Revolutions, SW4 7TB
