What to do this bank holiday!
The countdown is officially on for the August bank holiday weekend, and as there’s no Notting Hill Carnival this year, destination venues Peckham Levels and Pop Brixton are bringing a taste of carnival to South London instead.
Both venues are hosting full weekends of live music and DJs – and what’s more all the events are free! As well as amazing lineups, guests at each venue can expect full stocked bars (rum cocktail anyone?) + amazing street food from some of London’s finest traders (including acclaimed Caribbean eatery Caribe at Pop Brixton).
