On 23rd August, we packed our cases and headed down to Camden to host our very own beach party at the iconic Roundhouse.
We teamed up with the Roundhouse over the summer to sponsor Roundhouse Beach which saw sand, sounds and sunshine (most of the time). Opening on 15th July, the beach treated visitors to two weeks of movie screenings including huge hits such as Mean Girls, Moana and Zoolander, with the beach itself remaining open to the public until 28th August.
Once we touched down in Camden, we got straight down to business making sure that our event was as beach-y as possible with our trusty bag of props – we had rubber rings, lilos and even a huge palm tree. We also had our very own Snapchat filter (which we definitely didn’t take enough selfies with).
Our beach-seeking guests were greeted with a glass of Prosecco on arrival and had access to a self-service drinks table for the rest of the evening. A delicious selection of food for the event was provided by The Flying Frenchman, who dished up a range of meaty and veggie sausages, aubergine chips, salads and even homemade ketchup! Talk about all inclusive!
We were even lucky enough to have some super talented guests join us at our party; Modupe, DM Farley and Riah Knight all took to the stage to perform a 30 minute set of originals and covers. The music was great and definitely made us feel like we were sunning ourselves on a beach far, far away.
We were overwhelmed with the number of guests that joined us at our beach party, including friends from The Sun, The Mirror and Travel Weekly. Other guests who came to get their beach on included Tania from The London Thing, Emily from The Cosy Traveller and Phoebe from Wood and Luxe.

We would like thank all our guests for joining us at our beach party and also to the Roundhouse allowing us to work with them.
