It’s somehow already May! Where on earth is 2016 going?? As the sun is finally promising to show its face a little more in our garden, we can safely say that summer is swiftly approaching, despite the odd shower of rain (but it wouldn’t England without that now would it?)… Come rain or shine, we’re making sure that our famous outdoor space is still proving itself as the most inviting and comfiest in London.
To start off the month and get you into that summery mood, we’ve got a brand new monthly market happening in our garden on May 1st, all day long. Here you’ll find all sorts of home and hand made products sold by some wonderfully talented people – from headpieces to chutneys to homeware! Plus, the following weekend brings us more sunny activities with Saturday afternoon art talks and workshops, hosted by the local Happenings Collective.
We’ll also be bringing you more incredible live bands and DJs over the next few weeks before many of them hit the festival circuit. Kicking off the month is a monumental weekend with Eastern gypsy favourites Ushti Baba and The Odd Beats, plus a set from the legendary Rumpsteppers on Friday! Then, Saturday brings us some familiar faces from Mama Jerk And The Lady Fingers, Gypsy Hill and the Loki DJs for some seriously skankworthy sounds!
Starting things off as we mean to go on, we’ve got more brilliant bands lined up for the following weekends too. We’ll be welcoming big bands with different takes on brassy melodies, like SUPA & Da Kryptonites‘ hiphop vibes, Matuki‘s reggae and the Discount Orchestra‘s gypsy-circus sounds!
Plus we’ve, more weekday talent than you can shake a microphone at! With plenty more up-and-coming bands as well as those giving it a go at our Tuesday open mic night, we’re never short of something magical happening on our stage…
