bbj-may6th-a6-frontMonday Find the feel-good community factor by heading down to the newly reopened Brixton Windmill for the public unveiling of Brixton’s newest mural – a collaboration between artist Camila Cardenosa and hundreds of local people. Enjoy the celebration party and live music and socialise with your community. This event runs from 2pm – 5pm.

In the evening, the latest instalment of Brixton BookJam is today at Hootenanny, starting 7:30pm. For absolutely no monies (yes, it’s completely free) you can hear readings from such notable literary talents as Leila Segal, Gaylene Gould and Zelda Rhiando, among many others.

Tuesday  Help the hungry by donating packaged food to Brixton food bank. Donations are welcome at St Paul’s Church on Tuesdays 10am-1.30pm, Saturdays 11am – 2pm, Sundays 11am – 1pm. The bank urgently needs full fat UHT milk, tinned sweetcorn, mushrooms and green beans, sponge puddings, rice puddings and instant mash.

Wednesday  Bingo fans will enjoy Kaff Bar’s regular bingo night hosted by Tina Tea Lady and tunes from DJ Underkova. Games are free to enter and there will be free drinks for the winners of each game, so let the games begin. Starts 8pm.

Thursday  Open Deck night at Mango Landin’. Wannabe DJs (or real ones) can bring along 4 singles and put their name down at the bar. The best selectors will win a prize at the end of the night. Every Thursday starting 9pm.

Friday  Are you an artist or creative professional based in Lambeth? The wonderful Lambeth Open, now in its fifth year, is open for submissions. On the first weekend of October artists and craftspeople across the borough of Lambeth will be exhibiting their work to the public in their studios, pop-up shops, shared spaces or their own homes.
