Buster Mantis

"Steam Down happens every Wednesday at Buster Mantis and is an insane music night run by friends from a jazz background. It’s experimental, spontaneous and very lively. Get there early because it’s completely packed out by the time the music starts"

Oi spaghetti + tiramisù

"Best spaghetti I’ve ever had. Made by one lovely man in a little hut"

Peckham Bizarre

"My favourite restaurant in South London. A mix of Iranian, Turkish and Greek style cooking"

St James Great Church

"Church of Sound is one of the most inspiring places to watch a live band give you their everything. The stage is in the centre and the audience surrounds. You will be consumed by the music"

Deptford Market

"I grew up coming to this place. My dad would buy himself crabs to cook and buy me lucky bags from the corner shops, it’s full of colourful stalls and beautiful people living their existence. Check out Rag n Bone a lil gem of a vintage store at the end of the market"

The Royal Albert

"So many amazing bands pass through this place from Ezra Collective to Nubya Garcia, Theon Cross, Kokoroko, Joe Armon-Jones. We’ve all played here or come to hear amazing new music"
