According to the PM, we’re all incredibly bored of everything Brexit. So maybe we should cut loose at one of the many ‘leaving drinks’ (lol) organised in the capital, back when Mar 29 was DEFINITELY Brexit day. Here are five parties that will be popping whether we stay or whether we go...
Clamber to Camberwell on Saturday March 30 for this LGBT+ club night designed to ‘cure your Brexit hangover’. Whatever happens with Brexit, the U OK HUN? gang are promising ‘a safe space of zero political chat and maximum bangers’ and a crown for the best-dressed ‘hun’. Probably best not to dust of your Boris wig, tbh. The Chateau. Sat Mar 30.
The LondonSwedes social group are hosting a massive bash in Hackney Wick where no one will be discriminated against for not having an EU passport. The event slogan is ‘win or lose, we’re on the booze,’ so it’s safe to presume the mood will be pretty jubilant whatever happens on the day. Number 90 Bar & Kitchen. Fri Mar 29.
Mark the end of an era (maybe) by letting out some righteous rage at this ‘Eurocentric punk show’ in Peckham. The line-up includes Leeds emo band Calm and local ‘sarcastic punks’ The Dissociates, who’ll be trying to play loud enough to reach ’em in Calais. DIY Space for London. Thu Mar 28.
This Brexit-inspired play party invites all-comers to ‘celebrate borderless love’ with ‘humans of all gender identities and sexual orientations’. Organisers say all guests will be personally vetted by video call, and the secret loft location will only be revealed to those who make the grade. Secret venue. Mar 29.
Head to Bethnal Green for a night of ‘bonkers Brexit cabaret’ complete with a field of wheat – or at least the nearest east London’s going to get to one. After the shows finish, the usual Pussy Liquor DJs will be on hand to ‘get your feet dancing away the pain incurred by the loss of cheap Ryanair flights to southern Spain’. Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. Mar 29.
Top disc-spinners including Horse Meat Disco, Erol Alkan, Fatboy Slim, Norman Jay MBE and Artwork will be hitting the street on the afternoon of the People’s Vote demonstration to form a massive mobile system. Whatever your views on a second referendum, the beats are bound to be galvanising. Various locations, starting at Park Lane (follow them on social for information on the day). Mar 23.
