This month sees the return of our May Fayre! After the success of last year’s sold-out event we thought we’d bring it back with even more music, drama and intrigue to celebrate the wilder side of Mayfair’s past.
This month we are also teaming up with Everyman Cinemas to bring Hendrix’s Electric Church to life for one night only.
As well as a screening of the critically acclaimed film of Jimi at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival, there will be a Q&A, live performances and DJs all night. Find our more here.
