A game of sport, style and continental spirit. Drop by The Lord Stanley and The Tufnell Park Tavern to try your hand at the game.

We do not stand on ceremony. There’s no need to book, simply round up your friends, reach for an ice cold Chalice of Stella Artois Cidre and score des points in the sunshine, at your leisure.

Le President will also give players the chance to win their very own tandem bike (built for two). Magnifique!

Come along and discover the ‘Golden Rules’ of the game. But remember – c’est boules, not bowls. Enjoy. 18+ only.

Needwant with Mario Basanov & The Mekanism @ Basing House / Friday 24th August 2012


22:00 – 04:00

@ Basing House
25 Kingsland Road
E2 8AA

Entry: £9 Here

Needwant return to the regular home, Basing House for a label night that kicks starts the big London bank holiday weekend tonight. Two of their most sought after artists: Mario Basanov and The Mekanism take to the Funktion One soundsystem to deliver their unique take on House.

Mario Basanov is an artist who has been gradually entering the consciousness of every music lover. Over the past eighteen months the Lithuanian based producer has released an album with production partner Vidis, as well as presenting stand out solo remixes for the likes of Metronomy, Crazy P and the recent emotive deep house remix of Millok & Zigelli. Mario’s own productions have hit new heights too, We Are Child Of Love racked up over 200k views on YouTube and this year will see the release of his debut full solo album.

Meanwhile The Mekanism are a young French duo, just getting started and destined for great things. Having released their debut EP on Needwant at the start of 2012 their stock immediately rose as the their tracks ‘Can’t Believe’ and ‘Missing Love’ made an impact on just about every House dancefloor worldwide. Their electronic sound sits somewhere between Metro Area and the new wave of Jamie Jones inspired bass driven house music. Remixes for Noir and Mario himself have only cemented their stature as a hot production duo. Warming everyone up on the night will be Needwant friend and family member TYTHE.

After amazing shows featuring Nicholas, Robert Owens, Bonar Bradberry, Burnski and more, the next Needwant label night is set to be the perfect start to the three day bank holiday marathon.

Open: 12:00 – 22:00

The King’s Cross Filling Station, Goods Way, London N1C 4UR

Technology Week is inspired by the launch of the electric car, the Vauxhall Ampera. The future of technology is imagination, so the week is based around experimental, interactive design technology, seeking to examine what happens when the rules are broken down.

The Week is curated by Beatrice Galilee. Beatrice was European curator of Shenzhen Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism in 2009, curator of the Biennale of Design in Korea in 2011 and in 2013 she will be Chief Curator of the Biennale of Architecture in Lisbon. She also lectures at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. The events aim to take apart the rules and show you how to re-design, re-imagine and re-invent the future – featuring:

· A nightly lighting show with video installation artist Quayola curated by Nuit Blanche, bringing London to light after dark
· An interactive, kinetic robot that can read circuits and translate colour into sound by designer and sound artist Yuri Suzuki
· A discussion with Jason Bruges Studio and Troika who have produced numerous immersive and spectacular installations around the world
· DNA Hacking with Tuur van Balen including a demonstration on how to DNA-hack yoghurt, creating a truly one-of-a-kind dish
· Performance artist Choy Ka Fai demonstrates the potentials of digital muscle memory by choreographing a piece which uses electrical pulses to stimulate the nerves and create movement

Guests can also treat themselves to Homeslice pizza, proseco on tap and slushy margheritas at the Filling Station bar!
