Heavenly & Rough Trade acts to play free gigs at The Social’s Christmas Market


News just in from our sister venue The Social:

The Social’s famous Christmas Saturdays return to Little Portland Street in December. This year there will be more booze, food and space to socialise, and much more music too with free shows in the basement from acts on Rough Trade (14th) and Heavenly (21st).

The market, as ever, will happen in the upstairs bar at The Social and stalling out for your delight each week will be the essential nature and culture website Caught By The River and their spectacular shop filled with books, maps, badges, records, limited edition screen prints from, amongst others, Stanley Donwood and David Chatton Barker, as well as exclusives from their cupboard. They’ll be joined by a couple of guest stalls each week and this year we’ll be leaving a booth or two free for people to come and sit down down and enjoy our food and drink.

The doors will be open between 12pm and 5.30pm, entry is free and with a fully stocked bar including a selection of ales, our homemade mulled wine, hot cider, Bloody Marys, hearty food, impromptu DJ sets and outbreaks of festivity – we invite you to come down our chimney where a very warm welcome is once again guaranteed.

Guest stalls this year will include Faber Social, Andrews and the Empress of Arcadia, Clay Pipe, Heavenly Recordings and more.
