Sensing a sadness for the Summer that could have been, Brixton Village have been hard at work preparing for the occasion, which in normal circumstances would have seen us at Lost Village or even Notting Hill Carnival.
And what a weekend they have planned. Back-to-back DJs will grace the Brixton Village courtyard, with steel pan band Pan-Nation and various other live musical debuts to occur over the weekend.
West African-inspired restaurant Chishuru will also be opening to the public from Friday the 28th of August. Chishuru’s owner, Nigerian chef Adejoké ‘Joké’ Bakare, had previously won the top prize in the amateur category of the Brixton Kitchen competition, and aims to put West African food on the market’s map with her delicious, seasonal menu.
After taking care of your ears, stomach and mind, why not take a stroll to Lalo’s Gelato for a palette quenching dessert, or treat your garden to a funky updo at Brixton Cornercopia. Whether you’re after bespoke leather handbags at Ismad, or an entirely new wardrobe courtesy of Rachel & Malika’s boutique, the ever diverse cast of businesses operating in the beloved arcade are sure to offer you plenty to indulge in. We promise!
