Things To Do

Electric Winter at Between the Bridges

Welcome to Between The Bridges, London’s 4,000 sq ft festival of fun – which can most boringly be described as a “really big beer garden” but should more accurately be described as “a massive, free to enter alfresco adult playground which fuses a smorgasbord of bars and street food with DJs, live music, drag brunches and special events; all packed into four different dining areas right by the Thames.”

It’s called Between The Bridges – possibly because it’s located between Westminster and Hungerford Bridges, but who knows – and tickets are now on sale for drag brunches hosted by Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK stars like Cheddar Gorgeous and Baga Chipz; bawdy late-night events from Guilty Pleasures, Ultimate Power and Indeedy Musical Bingo; screens showing the World Cup (that aren’t so much screens as video walls); live gigs from the ultimate brass troupe, Old Dirty Brasstards; karaoke with Dalston’s drag hosts Karaoke Hole; and DJ nights featuring big names and Bugged Out jockeys. All of which take place under heated, covered, festoon-lit tents: this is England, after all.

Don’t let the icicles fool you – this is heated.

The food and drink options at Between The Bridges are plentiful too, thanks to a sizeable line up of street food traders that includes Born & Raised; Bang Bang Burger; The BBQ Dept; The Duck Shed; The Mac Factory and Osh Paz (serving up Uzbek dishes); and pop up bars serving seasonal thirst-slakers including mulled wine, mulled cider and hot chocolate – all of which can be souped up with an extra shot.

Yes, even the wine. Our kind of place.

 

NOTE: Between The Bridges: Electric Winter is free to enter, and is open Tues-Sun until 23rd December. You can find out more, and book a table or event tickets, here.
