A David Attenborough-Themed Rave Is Coming To London

And in the next episode of Planet Earth, Sir David Attenborough will be exploring the behaviours of London party-goers in their natural habitat…

‘A club night playing homage to Sir David Attenborough is coming to east London’ is certainly a sentence I never thought I’d write. But a little birdie told me that David is a big fan of disco, so I guess it makes sense*.


This new club night comes to the capital on Saturday 10th March, and you can expect a mix of house, disco, funk and soul – all overlaid with samples of David’s Attenborough’s hunky voice. If that’s not a description of a perfect Saturday night, I don’t know what is.


The night will take place at Hackney’s Oval Space, which will be transformed into a magical rainforest by the guys at Good Life, the creative events company from Leeds. There’ll also be cardboard cut outs of the man himself, as well as hundreds of Attenborough masks that will be given out to guests. Think of it as stepping into a real life episode of Planet Earth, with all the vines and ivy, plus a few extra Jägerbombs.

David Attenborough’s Jungle Boogie will take place at Oval Space on 10th March, 10pm–4am. Tickets cost £5 (plus booking fee) and you can buy them here. A big portion of the proceeds will also be going to the World Land Trust, a charity that David is a patron of. 

*There is no bird. I made this up. I have no idea what music David is into, although I sincerely wish I did. David, if you’re reading this, fancy meeting for a cuppa and chatting about disco? I’ll bring my CHIC records.
