England may be out of the World Cup and it may well be raining but, my friends, Summer is not over. This weekend sees Wimbledon finals, the World Cup final and, just as importantly, England’s match with Belgium for third place (which, to be honest, I find a little harsh but hey, who am I to pass opinion on something I know so little about). I hear the sun is due to reappear too. So, gather family and friends, head out into the garden and enjoy the weekend. There’s a lot to celebrate.

Here are my picks to help your gathering go with a swing. Obviously to do it in true style you need to dig out your waistcoat and (to use @mad_about_the_house’s Instagram hashtag) #bemoresouthgate. Enjoy!
