What more is there to say? It's the Floyd. This is an exhibition of rare artefacts, artwork and curios.
Farmers Market in the lower hall of Leigh-on-Sea Community Centre / Town Hall. The December Xmas event is scheduled for Saturday 23rd December – perfect for last minute gifts!
CAMRA is hosting the Great British Beer Festival for its 5th consecutive year at Olympia, London. Packing both the Olympia Grand and National halls with beer, food and entertainment, this year’s festival will have more to try than ever before.
The Enfield Town & Country Show is a 2 day event in Enfield Park for the whole family featuring the Festival of Dogs (bring your pooches!), an amazing variety of local food, drink and craft producers selling their wares, music stage, kids shows and much more.
For the exhibitionists amongst you, we commend you to dig out your Dirndl or Lederhosen because Brentwood Brewery is hosting its first Oktoberfest Beer Festival.
Another chance to marvel at and even get on board the cold war era Vulcan bomber housed in Hanger 6 at Southend Airport. Wash it down with a craft beer from Hoppily too!
Bringing the best in German festivities to South London – the super cool Brixton rooftop will be transformed into a huge bierkeller in October!
Fourpure are one of the lead breweriesshowcasing more than 30 breweries at the Heist Bank in Paddington. There will be plenty of beer to sample from fantastic breweries like Hoppily favourites Redchurch, Hop Stuff, Gipsy Hill & Beavertown.
We aren’t just restricted to Southend, you know. Every month from August, we will also be in Chelmsford – in the grounds of beautiful Hylands Park (weather permitting, otherwise inside) to be precise – for the Hylands Farmers Market.
Perhaps surprisingly, for a long-term resident of Leigh-on-Sea (oft seen strolling down the Broadway or having a coffee at Barlow & Fields), Phill’s only Essex gig of his upcoming tour is in Colchester and not the Cliffs Pavilion.
An opportunity to see the brilliant impressionist, unscripted and in conversation with his 'Dead Ringers' producer and collaborator, Bill Dare
Squeeze’s breed of power pop (which featured a certain Jools Holland in the early days) certainly conjures nostalgia in Hoppily HQ. From their ‘Greatest Hits’ forming the curiously English backdrop (alongside the rather more miserable ‘The Queen is Dead’ by The Smiths) to a Californian road trip to an early teenage gig by the band at the very same venue, South London’s finest have a special meaning to us and are always worth watching live.
Love him or loathe him (it is fair to say that he can divide opinions – just ask BBC Radio 2), it is difficult to ignore Russell Brand and his brand of irreverent, observational comedy which is, at times, both ‘in your face’ and intellectually challenging.
The Darkness’ blend of overwrought, bombastic, Classic Rock / Hair Metal silliness has never been ‘cool’ but brought them a massively successful debut album in 2003 powered by the karaoke singalong hits ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’ and ‘Growing on You’.
