A right royal knees up


The Camden Store and the Sir Richard Steele are proud to announce the full line up for A RIGHT ROYAL KNEES-UP, the three day, free entry music festival at the Sir Richard Steele pub in Camden taking place over the royal bank holiday weekend. The royal revelry includes live music across two stages – complete with DJs, dance duals, and much, much more.

This is a community event and will encapsulate everything that a royal wedding street party should. There will be kings and queens fancy dress, sing a-longs, regal decorations and each stage is set to have a royal theme.

We are pleased to say that we have now confirmed over twenty live acts to perform over the course of the weekend. All are giving their time for free in the spirit of national celebration. Nic Dawson Kelly (The Runners Club) will be headlining the main stage on Saturday. Originally signed to Rob Da Bank’s label, we are delighted to have secured this up-beat blues act, along with others including one-man-band Andy Twyman and North London boys The Supernovas.

The venue for the Knees-Up is an old school North London boozer with a large pub garden and a unique and endlessly fascinating interior. It already has a great reputation for attracting the great and the good of Camden’s music scene, and is renowned for putting on a blinding party. All this plus plenty of special surprises make this one royal wedding event nobody should be missing out on.

Festival goers will be encouraged to make like the monarchy for a day and join in the kings and queens FANCY DRESS alternative royal wedding reception. Kicking off the bank holiday weekend with a bang and boasting a stunning selection of top notch DJs, there’ll be plenty of pomp and revelry.
