When: From 11th October

Where: Bottle + Rye, SW9 8LD

‘Rice Paddy’ is popping up in Bottle + Rye and, as the name suggests, is a celebration of South East Asian food. The menu will be especially influenced by Northern Thailand so you can expect lots of flame cooking. There will be grilled meats (bbq’d chicken, aromatic sausages) and lots of spicy, sour dips and zingy salads.

After the sold-out main Disco Festival in April, Disco fest are coming back for one night of revelry. They’re taking over Electric Brixton and you can expect big names on the line up: Todd Terje, Kirollus, Aroop Roy and Guinny. It’s going to get funky.

Where: Brixton Library, SW2 1JQ

If the first book launch wasn’t enough, we are coming at you with another. Speak Out! is a collection of writing from the Brixton Black Women’s Group. Established in 1973, this group was formed to create a space where women of African and Asian heritage could meet safely to discuss the issues they faced collectively. Speak Out! will be released at this launch in Brixton Library.

Party hard at this farewell

When: 28th October

Where: Beetle Juice, SW9 8PS

The very sad news is that Beetle Juice is closing in Brixton Village. This fun cocktail bar has bought some great drinks, events and hangovers to the people of Brixton but they’ll be closing their doors on the 28th. To celebrate their time here, they’re throwing a big Halloween-y party; dress up and get ready to dance.
