Welcome to our culture section

We go beyond the Academy to seek out the secret gigs at the smaller venues. 

Of course it’s not just music, we cover the full range of Brixton’s cultural sector, highlighting the work of local artists and theatre companies as well as letting you know whats on at our local cinemas.


Watch this space for our new pub guide! Let us know if there is a pub you would like to be in the guide!
