May Bank Holiday London 2018

London is a prime destination for those looking to make the most of the eagerly awaited May Bank Holiday, with its endless selection of bars, live music venues and club nights delivering the goods across the extended pre-summer weekend.

Good Times purveyor Norman Jay MBE brings his distinctive brand of rare groove to The Prince of Wales on the 30th, while rhythm and blues legend Alexander O'Neal performs live at Under The Bridge on May 2nd

Glitterbox bring their hedonistic disco to Ministry of Sound on April 30th, Ben Klock's techno beast Klockworks takes over Printworks London, and Rupublic Artists Jay Lumen, Catz 'N Dogz and Kim Ann Foxman hit Egg London and a boat party on the Golden Jubilee.

Elsewhere, bassline, UK garage and jungle fans will be all over the Detached and One Love May Day Mash Up on the Viscount Party Boat, while Exposure bring funky house, old skool and R&B to Karma Ealing Club.
