Summer has finally arrived, which is handy as the Roundhouse is about to bring back the now-legendary Camden Beach.
Tucked away on our sunny terrace, this little slice of paradise in the heart of North London attracted over 40,000 visitors last year, and is back bigger and better than before.
Think 900 square metres and 150 tonnes of the finest sand, end-of-the-pier amusements, deckchairs, beach huts, ping pong, live music, tasty food, ice-cold drinks and loads more. If you can’t get to the beach, the Roundhouse is bringing the beach to you!
Over the past seven years the Fourth Plinth in the northwest corner of Trafalgar Square has become home to some of the world’s most innovative artworks.
The plinth was originally designed by Sir Charles Barry in 1841 to display an equestrian statue, however due to insufficient funds the statue was never completed. In 1998 – over one hundred and fifty years later – the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) commissioned three contemporary sculptures by Mark Wallinger, Bill Woodrow and Rachel Whiteread to be displayed temporarily on the plinth.
The Prince Charles Cinema has a new SLACKERS party night, and to set the tone perfectly their first screening is SINGLES: the not-that-well-known-but-should-be 90s rom-com that inspired Friends.
In classic PCC style this is not only a film screening: they’re throwing open their doors and letting the 90’s in. There will be a selection of music videos with lyrics on the screen for you to sing along to before the film, and every ticket-holder gets a free slice of pizza & a free beer – in a red party cup!
SINGLES is a love letter to the “Seattle sound” from director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky), and follows a group of friends in an apartment block learning lessons about life and love, soundtracked with an amazing original playlist of 90s grunge from Pearl Jam to Paul Westerberg, and starring a young Bridget Fonda and Matt Dillon.
