streetfestThe No. 1 urban culture festival, StreetFest combines an explosive line-up of music, art, dance, sport and fashion. Think awesome musical talent, graffiti and street artists, dynamic dance offs and some skaters hitting the half pipe. If that isn’t enough there’s is photobooths, digital graffiti walls, live tattooing, kids stuff, a beach cocktail bar and a food, fashion and arts market to keep you entertained!

So pop over to the new East London venue, with the impressive Olympic Stadium backdrop.

Jugular Experiment II


Jugular_logo1A crazy evening combining academics and arts ‘Joining the Head and the Heart’

Science, Storytelling and Leaps of Ingenious Creativity think Infinite Monkey Cage meets Complicite. Brain bath! Prime-Time Paradox! The Imaginarium! A Cabaret of Science!

The show is centred around the themes of Memory, Perception of Time, the Science of Ageing and the Molecular Evolution of Modern Human behaviours and Culture. These themes have specialist Scientific research behind them but also interest the general public and thus are put in a human, social, emotional and artistic context.

Coffin Dodgers Disco


coffindodgersround5Having rested their bones for a month after over doing it a bit at the last event, Don & Reg will be back on Friday 2nd May, and every other 1st Friday of the month, to host another Coffin Dodgers Disco at The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, W1G 0PP (nearest tube Oxford Circus). Click here for advance tickets!

Join Don and Reg who have escaped from the old folks home and are ready to rock the party! These two don’t do hip-hop, it more like hip-op for them as they put out a call to arms for all the wrinklies out there who are still old enough to kick up some noise!

They hate kids, so they’ve banned everyone under the age of 28. Don’t try and sneak in as Vera, our door fascist will be checking your ID, and belting anyone who is younger and tries to sneak in with her handbag!
