Get a little naughty with nostalgia this July in London as there's a roaring new brunch event on the scene. Not only dosing the crowd on favourite 90s bites and bottomless mimosas, there's set to be DJs, lip-sync battles and plenty more.
This July in London, be taken back to the Golden Age days of live jazz, late night debauchery, bathtub gin and flappers. The Candlelight Club are in town and they're set to host a series of glamorous soirees where you'll be dancing, drinking and getting merry as if it were the 1920s.
The summer months mean you get to enjoy some of the best outdoor activities in London, and Campfire Club Friday is doing just that. Gathering the best musical talent in the capital to a secret natural location, they’ll be playing for you, completely unplugged, around an intimate campfire.
The Ferryman sold out its initial run at The Royal Court Theatre in under 24 hours. Now it is being brought to life this July by multi-award winning film and stage director Sam Mendes, with a play that tells a story of a rural Irish village changed forever by the arrival of a mystery visitor.
Nicole Line hosts textile workshops that are designed to teach a creative skill to both adults and children. Perfect regardless of whether you’re a complete beginner or a total pro, you’ll share ideas and techniques in a relaxed setting. The workshops are held at venue’s throughout London, where you’ll learn how to use the equipment, source the materials and even set up your own studio space at home.
Celebrate the start of Wimbledon and Britain's love of tea with a cocktail masterclass at a secret East London location. On the day, guests will be taught how to make the perfect alcoholic cuppa, using milk vodka from the Black Cow spirit brand. Expect plenty of flairing, a few alcoholic snacks and plenty of wonderfully weird flavours.
This is no ordinary quiz night. It’s more of a massive disco in pub quiz format, as Sounds Familiar leave the boring trivia questions at home and come armed with their record box instead. The drill is pretty simple; they’ll play a snippet of a famous song, and it’s up to you to scribble down the artist and the track’s name. Audience participation is a big deal, and terrible singing/dad-at-a-wedding dance moves are encouraged.
Join the most aloof garden party you’ll attend this summer at the Chap Olympiad. Dress in your dandiest clothes and compete in a series of challenges, from track and field to floppy of hair events, you’ll gain less points for sporting prowess then you will for dandiness. With your other eccentrically dressed sports men and women, raise a glass to Britain’s sporting incompetence.
Comedy Carnival is celebrating Independence Day with a night of brilliant comedy. Join the West End Bar Rumba as they host the huge night of hilarious shenanigans, this time led by some of America's top comedians.
July just got a whole lot hotter as Guilty Pleasures comes to refurbished former theatre KOKO in Camden. Full of the cheesiest, catchiest and happiest songs, the night is the perfect opportunity to stretch those vocal chords, dance to the silliest dance moves and confess all to Father Oates.
Thirsty Thursday is about to reach a whole different level thanks to the Shoreditch Pub Crawl. Offering 2-4-1 tickets (that’s £6 per person), you’ll go hard with free entry to four of the area’s top nightspots, with free shots and beer pong antics throughout. Hook up with a raucous crowd out to have a great time and experience Shoreditch nightlife at unbeatable prices.
