Peckham Soul brings Togetherness to Beckenham
I love Beckenham Place Park with its green spaces, woodland and grand old mansion house, so good to see that there are some interesting things going on there to encourage other people to come along and discover it. Personally I mainly go there to run (among other things there's a newish parkrun every Saturday morning) but I might be tempted to try out something even more athletic with some northern soul moves - which I always imagine I am capable of after a few drinks...
This Saturday April 29th Peckham Soul will be putting on the first of a series of Togetherness nights there:
'With the best in Northern Soul, classic Motown, Stax, funk and disco, your host DJ Craig Jamieson (Peckham Soul / South London Soul Train), takes you on a dancefloor trip through the world’s most life affirming music. A season of Peckham Soul events taking place in in the summer splendour of Beckenham Place Mansion... In this time of nastiness, we say - Brexit..no, Trump…No, Togetherness …Yes!'
This weekend will feature a DJ set from Ben Ayers from Cornershop, after that the monthly line up will include:
May 27th Andy Lewis (Paul Weller Band & Acid Jazz) DJ Set
June 24th Special Guest T.B.A
July 29th Eddie Piller (6 Music & Acid Jazz)
Aug 26th Belle & Sebastian (Chris Geddes DJ Set)
Sep 30th Special Guest T.B.A
