To kick off their birthday, Prince of Peckham have the ultimate hot wing showdown: Wing Ting Wile Out (14th May). They're challenging everyone to get through some dangerously hot Moruga Scorpion pepper wings without reaching for water or anything that will cool the burn for 10 minutes after finishing them. The next day Hip Hop v Grime Karaoke (15th May) will see the most important clash of two of the UK's biggest genres coming together for one night only. Not to be missed if you fancy yourself as a karaoke connoisseur.
On Wednesday it's the Lagunitas Tap Takeover (16th May). The renowned US brewery will be flying in to serve exclusive flavours to ring in the milestone. White Men Can't Jerk will be on hand to not only to serve you the best chicken wings in London, but are taking over on the decks with the White Men Can't Jerk Sound System (17th May). Followed by forward thinking creative collective, BORN N BREAD (18th May), who are set to take over your Friday night for back to back tunes and vibes. On Saturday night the wedding everyone is talking about will be shown with a Prince of Peckham twist as The Reggae Royal Wedding (19th May). The screening will be served with favourites including chicken and waffles, a bottomless brunch and a soundtrack of reggae, bashment, dancehall and afrobeats. To end the week of festivities, Prince of Peckham have their Little Prince & Princess of Peckham Day Rave (20th May) featuring a soft play room, disco ball games, bubble machine and a DJs.
