House Party + Lovers Rock 18

Part of Musical Fridays
Screened in partnership with Theatrum Mundi
Steve McQueen, UK, 2020, 70m.

What better way to mark the start of our Caribbean Musical Fridays season than by throwing a huge house party in our bar!


Tickets £14 (members) / £16 (non-members).


We've partnered with Lin Kam Art to bring the next generation of British DJs to The Garden Cinema. Along with the Legend herself, Linett Kamala, they'll be showcasing their skills on a  beautifully reconditioned vintage speaker set up thanks to the sound heroes at Audio Gold. 


Alongside such sonic delight, we'll be putting on a free screening of Steve McQueen's joyful and essential Lovers Rock. The heart of McQueen's groundbreaking Small Axe project, Lovers Rock is a joyful and completely unique love letter to the Blues Party music and party scene of the 1970s/80s. This screening will be introduced by the film's co-writer, playwright and novelist, Courttia Newland.


Get down early for Doctor Gee's Notorious rum punch and Lover's Rock/Classic dub tunes, and stay late for sets that trace the lineage of UK reggae into the present day (and more punch).
