Brixton Disco Festival at Electric Brixton on Saturday 13 October 2018

Following the inaugural sold out Brixton Disco Festival back in April, the disco extravaganza is back for a one-off special event, at the iconic Electric Brixton this October. Revellers can again expect high levels of production & stage spectacles to compliment an unmissable night of Disco! 🎉 🎶

Featuring two of the biggest disco DJs on the planet, Dimitri From Paris and Late Nite Tuff Guy will be heading things up, supported by Pablo Contraband and a takeover of Room 2 by one of London’s finest disco collectives, Stevie Wonderland.

Disco doyen Dimitri From Paris is one of the most prolific disco producers and DJs of our time, having created numerous masterpiece across his career. Where other DJs shy away from defining their sound for fear of being pigeon-holed, Dimitri has no qualms about being known as a ‘disco king’.

Late Nite Tuff Guy is a new breed of disco vigilante, peddling the most credible of disco edits and accruing some serious acclaim from an illustrious roll call of industry people in the know. Greg Wilson, Jackmaster and Dimitri from Paris have been regularly playing a handful of LNTG tracks in any given set and their ongoing support is testament to the quality of his work.

+ (1|The world is crumbling and depressing, how can I feel happy about anything.)
– It will be like the first warm day after a brutal winter and you greet the sun on your face.

Close my eyes and pretend I don’t exist.

I want to “cultivate a sense of privilege.”

+ (2|Kanye sliders.)
– I’m That Bitch. I did some cocaine and was worried I kept taking

too much in the rotation.

When I don’t work I start to slip away.

– Vaporizer or bong?

+ (@Bong)

– I forget what else happened, great parties, lots of shrooms, saving one hit for the weekend. I went to this one meeting totally high. It was the perfect use of drugs.

Vegtoberfest at Fest Camden on Saturday 7 October 2018

The UK’s first vegan Oktoberfest celebration. The Bavarian themed beer festival will couple the merry traditions of Oktoberfest with vegan friendly beers, wines and street food. 😛 👏 🌱

Oktoberfest is a beer festival first and foremost and Vegtoberfest is just that. Vegan-friendly Bavarian beers will sit alongside a handful of local vegan craft ales, while vegan wines, mulled wine and hot and cold cocktails will also be available.

It wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest celebration without Bratwurst so Vegtoberfest will serve a range of vegan Bratwurst and sausages with all the usual trimmings at the Brat Grill. Vegtoberfest will also make use of Fest Roof Garden’s wood-fired pizza oven where a selection of vegan pizzas with Bavarian themes will be served.

Fest Camden’s main room will be transformed into a Bavarian beer hall where guests can enjoy their ‘steins’ while live music, comedy and DJs will provide the entertainment on stage. Guests will enjoy food and drink from the roof garden with views over Camden Stables Market!

House of Horror at Essex from Friday 28 September – Wednesday 31 October 2018

A new and groundbreaking 4D immersive experience featuring a full cast of highly-trained actors ready to twist and turn you through film-grade sets designed by the best, to do their worst. 😱

Decaying in the depths of Brentwood, a blood-soaked path draws you towards a vast, abandoned house. Inside, spirits are awoken and nightmares are realised as you embark on your battle through 12 rooms of sheer torture. These are your darkest fears so prepare to take centre stage in scenes reminiscent of Hollywood’s most terrifying films where you become the victim… are you brave enough to step inside?

Fight your way through each zone of terror as the house throws up a chilling array of physical and psychological challenges. You’ll find yourself exorcising a demon as you witness a possessed girl’s head twist 360 degrees and if you take a wrong turn in the ‘Macabre Maze’, you’ll meet a sinister fate.

With areas including Sci-Fi-Die, Krow Killers, and Medical Madness, you’ll join forces with up to 10 friends to see who can make it out alive! Should you survive the ordeal, you will have the choice to enter the mysterious Room 13, a room so intense, visitors are required to sign a waiver before entering because of the torture endured inside.

Visitors also have the option of receiving a video of the whole experience filmed on a GoPro, have photos taken in a specially themed booth complete with gory props as well as visit the weird and wonderful gift shop. Guests can also revel in the fright of others by spectating live on Fright Vision, while plenty of street food and refreshments will be available to help them level their nerves and bring adrenaline levels back down to normal.

This is the most complete and crazy, unforgettable and unique spooktacular experience in the country… dare you enter the House of Horror?
