We’re no strangers to kicking back in the pub for an evening and it’s one of the most-loved spots in British history for forging friendships of all types.
No matter whether your local is a dark and gloomy £3-pint-special or comes complete with rooftop garden and fancy cocktails, pubs retain the same sort of intimacy that we know and love. We can all name a handful of bands that started their career down at the local and we’ve all had at least one spontaneous night that started out at the pub. In short: you never know what might happen when you’re a regular at your local.
This season, Mulberry is taking over three famous London pubs for the arrival of their “My Local” series. Introducing you to some of their favourite artists, expect an evening of live music with free drinks and food to match. It’s the perfect place to head after work to kick back with friends in a chilled out environment. This summer, the humble pub experience is stepping up a notch.
The “My Local” series is an extension of Mulberry’s AW19 campaign, which celebrates British culture and heritage. The events combine some of London’s best British pubs with a “Mulberry Twist”, encouraging a merge of a traditional setting modernised with new music.
Taking place at Farringdon’s The Betsey Trotwood pub, the first event features three up-and-coming artists who’ll be playing a variety of genres as the perfect evening backdrop. First up will be Alan Power, loved by the likes of Vogue magazine and Bob Geldof. Known as the “technicolour dream weaver” by Alexa Chung, his music offers the ideal summer theme tune as you relax under The Betsey Trotwood’s glowing lanterns.
Next up on the lineup for June 26 is south London’s Rosie Lowe: a British singer, songwriter and musician interviewed by everyone from DAZED to The Guardian. Rosie plays a mixture of Electronic, Soul, Alternative rock and Indietronica, proving that it’s possible to specialise in multiple genres at once.
Finally, there’s New Found Form: a joint venture between longtime friends Jordan Vickors (Stussy) and Josh Barnes (A COLD WALL*/Polythene Optics*) whose names you might have seen previously on Boiler Room.
But it wouldn’t be an evening at the pub without a bite to eat. While you’re there, enjoy some traditional British pub food with free alcoholic and soft drinks to wash it down with. Ready to come along?
