Fierce Grace Brixton recommends: May Bank Holiday fun

There are so many reasons to love May

MaypolesMorris Dancers. Two Bank Holidays. Yeah, so having two Bank Holidays may be THE BEST REASON. If you are in London and looking forward to spending some quality time on the yoga mat this May, make sure to check the schedule for any changes. For the rest of the time we have handpicked some local goings on that are also worth thinking about.

The Modern Movement at Brockwell Lido: Organised by our very own local vintage magpie, Moses Otunla (owns Bleu in Herne Hill), this celebration of 20th century design set against the wonderful backdrop of Brockwell Lido is a reason to get your chequebook out. Vintage furniture, jewellery and objet d’art can all be found here. Start your day with brunch at the Lido Café and its pretty much a perfect way to mooch away a day – 2nd & 3rd May, 10am to 4.30pm.

Passage Tells: Brixton. We love a bit of site-specific art, and Passage Tells: Brixton brings to life the Reliance Arcade in Brixton Market. You know, the once between Boots and H&M that smells of popcorn? Don headphones and interact with the physical environment as you listen to recorded conversations and interviews that bring this corner of Brixton to life. Advance booking is required for the 20-minute experience which finishes on the 2nd May.

Up on the Roof at the Prince of Wales has lined up a right corker for Bank Holiday Sunday 3rd May. Enjoy the sunshine as legendary Good Times stalwart Norman Jay gets the party vibe going (it’s always sunny when Norman Jay plays, its like a cosmic law), then get ready for a full evening of fun as he passes the fun baton on to deep house duo X-Press-2.
