We are well and truly in the midst of a British heatwave - you can tell from all the Brits complaining it's too hot.

For anyone not cowering in their homes, away from the blazing sun, there's a chance you might be at British Summer Time festival at Hyde Park in London instead.

The series of shows boasts an impressive range of acts including The Cure, Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Michael Buble and Bruno Mars.

Here's what you need to know if you managed to get a ticket or are just interested in the event:

Where is it and how do I get there?

BST festival takes place on the Parade Ground on the east side of Hyde Park - head towards postcode W2 2UH. The area is well-served by public transport: closest Tube stations are Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner, Bond Street, Knightsbridge, Green Park or Lancaster Gate.

Buses which stop near the area are:

Marble Arch : 26, 7, 10, 16, 23, 30, 36, 73, 74, 82, 94, 98, 137, 148, 159, 159, 274, 390, 414, 436

Bicycles, skateboards, scooters, roller blades and personal motorised vehicles aren't permitted inside the event with the exception of mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs.

There is no official drop off/pick up location near the site because of traffic so it's best to arrange to meet/drop off at a location away from the main event.
