We’ve all got that one friend for whom a ‘normal’ night of drinking, dancing and passing out just won’t do. They tend to be the ones that wear fancy dress to the shops, ask for a unicorn for their birthday or who would projectile vomit at the slight indication of going to an All Bar One. Yet no matter how infuriating (“No we can’t do quadruple raspberry Sambuca shots off the policeman’s hat AGAIN Emma…”), we love them and would do (almost) anything to keep them happy – so here are 5 September events that might just do the trick!
London’s first Gospel Karaoke night, Gospeloke is here to give all you budding Whitney’s or Tina’s (or Stevie’s if you like), the chance to swing it with London’s chicest gospel choir Singology. Halleluiah! Warm up your pipes and get ready to blast tunes such as I Believe I Can Fly and Livin’ on a Prayer until the early hours. Song, soul and sass; it’ll be a night to remember.
Queen of Hoxton
1-5 Curtain Rd
2. Are You Game? Wednesday 23rd September.
Grab those party hats and pass the ice cream… IT’S TIME TO PLAY! Find out who is the Leakiest Wink and test your mental agility in Mystal Craze whilst pulling back the curtain in Blind Fate; this will be a night of silliness, competition and PRIZES. Including the oh-so highly coveted Egg Cup. Wowza.
The Book Club
100-106 Leonard St
3. Plonk Golf.
With over 200ft of fun-packed putting challenges, Plonk Crazy Golf is not only a cheap night out, but also the ultimate gaming experience. So why not follow through on those week night plans, download the Fever app and swing by for a night of golf-stacles, challenges and drinks. Can’t forget the drinks.
Efes Snooker and Pool Bar
17B Stoke Newington Road
4. Naked Boys Reading, Thursday 24th September.
Yep, you read that right. Naked. Boys. Reading. Describing themselves as ‘a literary salon featuring in-the-buff readings by local beefcakes, bears, twinks, otters, butch femmes, sissy sluts, boys next door with an exhibitionist streak and lovers of naturism with a well-endowed library’, they really don’t need much more of an introduction.
Ace Hotel London Shoreditch
100 Shoreditch High Street
5. Playing Grown-Ups presents BIG, Friday 11th September.
Explore your inner adult by taking part in a social study, listening to stories of growth from real life grown ups and watching a screening of the 80’s classic BIG (accompanied by burgers and hard shakes, of course). Located on the canal, this beautiful venue is offering an unexpected and unique experience, collaborating with The Extraordinary Travelling Film Club to transport you towards finding out what it really means to be BIG. Get your tickets through the Fever app for an even BIGger bargain.
