Brixton Courtyard has been a great fixture in a year of otherwise zero DJs and clubnights and general fun. Its outdoor space has seen a consistently great line-up of DJs and parties, and now that it’s able to reopen along with the rest of London’s beer gardens and terraces, it’s pulled together a stonking bill of entertainment for the grateful masses (that’s you/us).
Spring highlights include Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, the proudly rearing-on-their-hind-legs Horse Meat Disco, Bolier Room regular Ahadadream and Carnival legends Channel One. There’s also a new regular Sunday brunch with food from Only Jerkin’ (who are also going to be on hand for the other events dishing up barbecue, fried chicken, hot wings and more).
The small print: Brixton Courtyard is fully Covid-secure and – almost as importantly – weatherproof, with covered tables, private booths and all that sort of thing.
BC was a smash last summer and looks all set to do the same in 2021.
