Here at Flour, we love heading to the coast whenever we get the chance – and now if you don’t have the time to head out of London, you don’t need to – the beach has come to us thanks to the team at the Roundhouse. ‘Camden Beach’ has returned this summer with 900 square metres of a beautifully fake shore-line of 150 tonnes of sand!
On the venue’s terrace, this free wonder comes complete with deck chairs, beach huts and a bar. You will also find ‘seaside’ inspired attractions including arcade games, air hockey and ping pong, an ice-cream van, and two sunny pop up restaurants: Made in Camden’s Fishy Business – serving sea bass, mussels and fish and chips – and a delectable American barbecue manned by Bubba of Arkansas Café renown.
As well as the delicious food on offer, there are also four beach gigs. On August 2, there’s a urban soul night with soul-folk songwriter Joel Baker, JJ Soulx, hip hop artist Cynikal and DJ Milo. On August 9, experimental guitarist Phil Maguire, fellow finger-picker Jack Allett and DJ Fauxlo. While on August 16, the indie acoustic night features Vanessa Gimenez, Sophie Blackburn and Ellekaye as well as a DJ set by Manish. Finally, August 23 offers up sunny reggae tones from Whitney Williams, Iam1, Tempting Rosie and DJ Emmanuel.
Time to head to the beach!
Happy Friday everyone.
