The Weekender: Five exciting things to do in London
Make the most of your two days off with House Parties, book launches, and a much-needed Glastonbury replacement
Thursday 23 June 2022 By Soho House
1. Glastonbury at Babington House
Missed out on a ticket? Don’t fret: we’re bringing Glastonbury to the House, so head to the lawn and enjoy highlights from the festival on our large screen. Our Babington barbecue will be available daily, alongside a special drinks menu from St-Germain.

2. House Party: Super K’s Baby Got Back at Shoreditch House
Super K takes over the Library for our House Party: Baby Got Back. A genre-defying night dedicated to old-school versus new-school party vibes, Baby Got Back favours quality sounds from all corners of the scene. Super K and friends bring you the best in hip-hop and R&B, with a pinch of garage, bashment, Afrobeats and UK-inspired selections. DJs on the night will include Sandra Omari (BBC Radio 1xtra resident, Reprezent Radio, Puma) and Narx (NTS, Boiler Room, Patta).

5. Book launch: Sandra Igwe’s My Black Motherhood at Kettner’s
Sandra Igwe’s new book shares the voices of many Black mothers, as well as her personal story of pregnancy: not finding the support she needed, and being burdened by cultural expectations, with her mental health becoming an uphill battle as a result. This book not only breaks open the conversation on motherhood, race and mental health, but also demands that Black women are heard, believed, and understood.
