TCé picks: A selection of things to do and places to go – August 2012

Oh August – how did you get here so soon? Here’s to the last of the holiday months in the capital, which promises some very cool new nights  and that massive event that goes down in West London over the bank holiday weekend that always has the best jerk chicken…



The Love Below at Trailer Happiness, August 5th – There’s a new monthly Sunday lounge coming to Notting Hill for those cool Londoners who like their music hip, chilled and classic. It’s called The Love Below (and if you remember anything about its namesake album by Andre 3000, you’ll know you want to be here).


No Long Ting at The Brick Box, 354 Coldharbour Lane, August 10th – Illustrious London MC Ty curates a night of music, artwork, films, DJs, food (and cheap drinks) in Brixton – and whether this is the one-off or the start of something regular, it sounds BRILLIANT.


Street Photography Workshop, August 12th – Our sister site The Culture Club Photography Workshops wants to take you on a journey around Shoreditch where your photography skills will go up a few notches making you the envy of all your mates. One to book.

 Arts & Culture

Bush Bazaar, Bush Theatre, until August 18th – Described as a “90 minute fantastical adventure” this pop-up theatre event brings together some of the capital’s most daring performers to perform a collection of shows that sound pretty intriguing…


Midnight Run, August 18th – Poet Inua Ellams leads a creative, after-hours expedition around London to experience the capital in a unique way.  There’s food, games and “experiments” – and no running required – so  just try to hold out until 6am!


Guilty Pleasures Cinema Party, August 24th and 25th –  This one’s for all the Madonna lovers out there, as the Troxy Cinema hosts a par-tay to top all partays, featuring a screening of Desperately Seeking Susan.  It’ll be a crazy, colourful  throwback to the 80s with DJs, dancers and bands (and we LOVE that).

Eat & Drink

Flat Iron pop-up steak and cocktail restaurant – this new foodie spot actually launched a few weeks back, but runs for six weeks only until August 28th (so thought it’d be worth a visit this month).  These guys are serving up some serious slabs of meat, so those with carnivorous tendencies should head to The Owl and Pussycat pub, pronto (Tuesday – Saturday, 6pm-10pm)

Special Event

Notting Hill Carnival, August 26th and 27th – there’s dozens of floats, good food and tunes, happy people (although a little overpacked – but meh); it’s Europe’s largest street festival and a brilliant way to spend the bank holiday weekend. See you there?
