Brixton debutante Pop (once an ugly-ass car park, now the hippest night out in SW9) has got all diva-esque to celebrate its first birthday. The space will play host to a four-day run of events to rival Liz Hurley, Tom Cruise et al in the epic celebrations stakes.
One Year Here will bring together and big up everything that makes Pop Brixton a fab night out. The party starts on Thursday 2 June with an eight-course tasting feast: dishes have been contributed by eight of Pop’s food vendors, including Kricket, Mama’s Jerk and L’Amuse Bouche; music comes courtesy of the resident DJs of Container Records and BoomBocs; while staff uniforms will be provided by Pop’s clothing stores, including Make Do & Mend and Queen Of The Harpies. Tickets cost £45.
This will be followed by yet more fun: a Prohibition-themed birthday ball on Friday 3 June, with performances from Swing Patrol and The Shirt Tail Stompers and free entry; a 12-hour live music event on Saturday 4 June, with artists to cover all musical tastes (tickets from £3); and a free-entry pop-up market on Sunday 5 June, featuring everything from furniture to (even more) food.
