SOLOMONS’ YARD

Taking over the cobbles for a second season, Solomons’ Yard is Camden’s summer-long street party with world renowned DJ names including Norman Jay and underground labels like Mi-Soul and Supa Dupa Fly spinning floor fillers here every weekend. Named after Peaky Blinders character Alfie Solomons, there’s a nod to the 1920s with cocktails and champagne served from al fresco bars by flat-capped baker boys and pearl-strung flapper girls until the clock strikes 12, and there’s lots of delicious street food on offer too.

When: Every Friday and Saturday from 28 May 
Where: 
Middle Yard
