There will also be live music, spoken word performances and guest DJs, alongside a fully licensed bar and café. It’s on from 1pm-8pm.

Venue: Blues KitchenAddress:
Cost: £5 after 9pm
They haven’t been too strict about the “one man” policy for this one, so there’s the odd band and solo artist thrown in as well. But it’ll mostly be what it says on the tin, with a great selection of musicians playing bluesy tunes. They have one of the latest licences in Camden, so after that they’re bringing out the DJs to keep the party going. Bands are onstage at 9.30pm and it’s free entry until 9pm.
Venue: Millbank TowerAddress:
Cost: £49 per person
Altitude 360 are bringing something a little different to Sunday brunch – with a wicked view of the London skyline, you can tuck into American breakfast classics like waffles alongside soul food dishes like cornbread and ribs… and all to the sound of gospel singers raising the roof! Brunch is served between 11am-3pm.
Venue: The Earl of PortobelloAddress:
It’s a bank holiday Monday so no excuse not to head down here tonight.
This is all about friends, good music (mix of disco, house and deep house), free entry (hell yes), drinks are local pub prices and a 2am licence means if you don’t come early (do the drinks are cheaper) you’ll be coming here later! This week they have Danny Klancy from Krankbrother on the decks. What more could you want? Check it out here for more info.
