FRIDAY

Piano Abyss Loki Brixton, SW9 7JJ

This high energy evening is packed with DJ sets, dancing and probably a bit of daylight too… It goes on until 3am on Saturday morning so if you want to start big, then this is where to go.


SATURDAY

Summer Closing Party Prince of Wales, SW9 8HH

Say goodbye to the summer with one of the PoW’s iconic rooftop parties. The weather is looking good (touch wood) so sling on the sunnies and get ready to dance in the sun for an epic 10 hours…if you have the stamina.

Victorian Vauxhall Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, SE11 5HL

This free event will transport you back in time for a classic Victorian funfair where you can find circus performers, games and sweet treats straight from the 1800’s!


Skyline’s Boat Party, Victoria Embankment, SW1A 2JH

Take to the seas this bank holiday and hop onboard the Skyline’s boat, where you’ll set sail on the Thames for a sundowner party like no other. Don’t want to stop the party? Luckily there’s an afters that you can opt-in to if you’re in the mood.


SUNDAY

Eurovision Celebration Royal Vauxhall Tavern, SE11 5HY

Who says Eurovision is done just because the competition is over? The RVT is putting on a proper celebration and have even got Eurovision alumni Sonia and Surie to come and sing. It will be banger after Euro-pop banger.


MONDAY

Two Fabulous Acts Two Brewers, SW4 7UJ

Not one but two drag acts are taking to the stage for your entertainment at the Two Brewers. Scare away any of the Monday blues with this endorphin hit of comedy, music and dancing.


Sports Day, Royal Vauxhall Tavern, SE11 5HY

Raise money for charity LGBT HERO at this fun, friendly sports day. Expect classic events like the tug of war and sack race… and come less conventional like the handbag throw and the 50 meter mince race.


All weekend long

Battersea Park in Concert Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ

All weekend Battersea Park is turning into an open air concert where you’ll find different evening of classical music, big hits from the West End and jazz too. Pack a picnic and get ready to soak up the sun in a gorgeous summery setting.


Tequila Town Copeland Gallery, SE15 3SN

Tequila, DJs, street food. An event in Peckham that is saying ‘Bank Holiday’ in London loud and clear. Get your tickets and don’t question a thing.
