Weekend plan looking a little lacklustre so far? Inject a mega dose of London love with Spitalfields workspace Second Home’s Bass in the City Weekend. A two-day celebration of the influence of Caribbean culture on life in the capital, it’s set to be as fun as it is fascinating. With a programme featuring carnival queen life drawing, panel discussions about Jamaican sound system culture hosted by music writer Lloyd Bradley, a mouthwatering cookout from jerk masters Shelly Belly’s, a Trojan Records vinyl sale and a special Sunday afternoon takeover by UK soundsystem Reggae Roast, hosted by Natty Campbell and Donovan Kingjay. If you want to discover the city’s rich cultural lineage – from ackee and callaloo to Jungle and D&B soundscapes, to the sequins and sass of Europe’s biggest street party – this is the weekend to make Second Home your second home. Nab tickets here.
