Absolut Presents: The Pride Brunch Party
On Sunday 25th August, we will be hosting the ultimate pre-Pride shindig with a boozy rainbow brunch.
Accompanied by DJ sets from local collective Meat Free and the legendary Jonjo Jury, who, amongst other numerous claims to fame, happens to be the face behind the tune selections at the super-cool Ace Hotel in Hoxton, there’ll be rainbow coloured bagels and a host of delicious – and free-Absolut cocktails to tuck into whilst you get your groove on.
On the drinks front you can choose from popular favourites like Porn Star Martini’s and Appletini’s, or something a little bit different like the Rhubarb Whip. Made with Absolut Juice Rhubarb and cream soda, it’s sure to send lovers of rhubarb and custard sweets weak at the knees.
We will also be a Vimto-infused Raspberri Rim, made with Absolut Raspberri, Vimto syrup and lemonade, and the disco-ready All Rise with Absolut, blueberry syrup and lemonade. Perfect party drinks.
The party will kick off at 11am with a welcome drink and brunch, with top tune selections courtesy of DJ Jonjo Jury and the award-winning Meat Free DJs.
Then between 12.30 and 1.15pm there’ll be an LGBTQ panel compered by PinkNews’ Snapchat editor Robert Greene looking at the representation, impact and importance of LGBTQ communities in music.
Panelists announced so far include British YouTuber, blogger, and radio presenter Calum McSwiggan (best known for creating video content around LGBT+ issues, mental health, and sex and relationships), a member of Manchester’s all-female Meat Free DJ collective and Bitch! Please co-founder and DJ Liam John.
Running until 3.30pm, it’s set to be an all-day affair with plenty of Absolut to go around and pure party vibes in the building.
Tickets cost just £15 and include brunch and five cocktails.
