“Vem aí o São João Vai chegar depressinha Tenho de ir à Terra do Dragão Chegar a brasa à minha sardinha! We already have a four-line-verse, and it might even be a good idea to add to this educational activity, but very fun, as required by the rule of São João at FC Porto Museum. Adults help the little ones, and everyone will use their creativity to make very special sardines with wire, thread, and paint. One can already picture the family liveliness!

Porto's historic centre is once again filled with liveliness, flavours, and safe socialisation. For three weekends from June to August, Mesh Up makes the start of summer at Mercado Ferreira Borges a very welcoming Urban Market. The usual and new brands and creatives, with surprises coming directly from Lisbon, sunset with a DJ set on the terrace of Hard Club, are some suggestions for three more editions of Urban Market. On the 3rd weekend of each month, the already known Mesh Up initiative fills Hard Club's main floor with liveliness and creativity, right in the heart of the city of Porto. Between 11 am and 7 pm it is possible to have a snack, listen to good music, and even support Portuguese brands: Laroca, B de batata, A Pimenteira Spices, Amaciarte, Petit Mignon, Gigi for beauty Lovers, Little Badger. Urban Market is an event that gives makers and designers the opportunity to present their products, without neglecting the cultural and tourist nature of the initiative. Thus, the summer edition takes place, with three editions, on June 19th and 20th, July 17th and 18th, and August 20th and 21st. Anyone who wants to welcome the season in a different way, come relax and catch some sun at Hard Club’s terrace during the weekend, listen to good music and meet Portuguese creative brands.
Livraria Lello inaugurated an "unprecedented" project with Time magazine, which highlights authors awarded by the Swedish academy who were the cover of the North American magazine. The art installation "Livraria Lello X Time: What Makes a Nobel?", by Time's creative director, D.W. Pine, highlights authors who received the Nobel, but also others who "deserved front cover honours" of Time because of "their value ‘nobelizable’ of its literature". The installation is made up of 12 panels, which feature the covers of Time magazine, from Rudyard Kipling, one of the first Nobel laureates in Literature, to Toni Morrison, awarded by the Swedish Academy in 1993, as well as other authors who were featured on the cover, such as Virginia Woolf and William Shakespeare.
