As far as we’re concerned, February is the official start of the culture calendar – so we’re happy that this month has quite a few entertaining going-ons in store, from charity danceathons to an opportunity to go to your very own prom.  Plus, tune into the site later for an announcement of a  brilliant  competition courtesy of our generous friends over at the Roxy Bar & Cinema…

 Music

Ali Shaheed Muhammad at Jazz Cafe, February 1st – The former member of  the pioneering A Tribe Called Quest drops into Camden for a Friday night party for lovers of hip-hop, R&B and soul.

Meet Mutsa danceathon, February 9th  – This fun and quirky social activist has been doing her part in London to raise awareness of the HIV pandemic in sub-saharan Africa through educational projects, and her latest event sees her organise an international danceathon fundraiser in London and New York City.  One of the teachers who’ll be putting participants through their paces is Zoo Nation choreographer Kate Prince (Into the Hoods, Some Like It Hip-Hop), so you’ll know this will be brilliant (and all for a good cause!).

 Cinema

Future Cinema presents Casablanca, February 14th – March 3th –  The creators of Secret Cinema will be presenting the iconic Casablanca, where you’ll step into the world of Rick’s American Café at the Troxy which will be transformed into the famous, exclusive and romantic nightclub. Immersive cinema at its finest.

The Book Club

Teen Dreams Prom at The Book Club, February 14 – Ever wondered what it’d be like to go to prom? Wonder no more on Valentine’s Day as The Book Club are throwing a fancy dress knees-up for couples and friends to experience prom first hand. There will be games, American food and even a final crowning of Prom King and Queen.

Arts & Culture

 Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern, February 21st – May 27th – Roy Lichtenstein is one of the leading figures of American Pop art, and this show brings together 125 of his most definitive paintings and sculptures.
