90s SEGA Retro Gaming Bottomless Prosecco Brunch - Aqumm, London
First up, retro gaming aficionados REZtron are back - and this time they’re dipping their toes into the ever expanding market of the bottomless brunch. Combining unlimited prosecco refills whilst competing against friends on Sega game consoles is a bit of a niché concept… and one we’re totally sold on! Consider us signed-up. Food wise, there will be Mediterranean mezzes, traditional English breakfast items, chicken & waffles and veg moussaka. Sounds salivating, but we’re most interested in the games. Golden Axe, Sonic 2, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter II plus many more will all be on offer. Did we mention there’s also karaoke? The action takes place on Sunday 30th June at Aquum in Clapham. £10 tickets on sale now.
London Craft Beer Festival - Tobacco Dock, London
Although Tobacco Dock is more commonly known as London’s adult playground hosting music events six weekends of the year, the remainder of the year the event and conference centre plays host to all manner of different delights. London’s Craft Beer Festival being one such example. This year taking place between Friday 9th - Sunday 11th August, organisers will be bringing their biggest haul of independent breweries and drink experts than they’ve ever before. The seventh edition will feature appearances from favourites including Brewdog, Brick Brewery, Cloudwater, Dry & Bitter and Gipsy Hill. In addition, there will also be DJs and bands soundtracking your sampling. Perfection. With five sessions to choose from over the weekend, you can pick the most convenient or go all out and attend them all. 'All In Beer' tickets on sale now.
Vegtoberfest with Old Dirty Brasstards live - Fest Camden, London
Returning after a successful debut outing last year, Vegtoberfest is back. Landing at Camden’s Stables Market on Saturday 12th October, it boasts being the UK’s first vegan Oktoberfest. As it doesn’t take a genius to work out, this is the seasonal Bavarian celebration with the twist that all the beers, wine and food on offer will be vegan-friendly. Even the bands selected to perform will be those who subscribe to a sustainable lifestyle. Okay, so you won’t find any bratwursts, but there will be a traditional beer hall where guests can enjoy their 'steins' while live music from the amazing Old Dirty Brasstards (on 12th October), magic and comedy from Dee Riley and party DJs will provide the entertainment on stage.
