#JULIASAYS – Discerning scene musings from the Princess of East London

Life throws all sorts of ups and downs our way doesn’t it! It’s all a learning curve, I like to think. Experience all you can. Be bold, be brave and make a change. This weekend, we’re celebrating clubland and publand birthdays.

The Glory has been a major force over the last three years, presenting a myriad of innovative nights curated by Jonny Woo, John Sizzle and Zoe Argiros. The Glory’s 3rd Birthday Party is on the Saturday 3rd March, where a host of performers take to the stage for two floors of show after show including Grace Shush, Tayce, Tracy Barlow and Barbs with DJs Chaka Khan’t, Dance Armstrong and…me! Come on down we’re open till 3am!


One of our fave late night Saturday haunts Savage celebrates a birthday Saturday 3rd March, and they’re pulling out all the stops…over the time it’s been going, Savage has been a hot spot like no other! Set in the Metropolis Strip Club, a towering club full of nooks and crannies to entertain and delight DJs such as Jonjo Jury pound out a musical spectrum to carry you into the small hours whilst dancers Lucy Fizz with clubland guests cavort on poles till 6am.


Back down The Glory, it’s a Spice World Sing-a-Long on Thursday March 1st with the one and only Just May ‘London’s premier Ginger Spice’. Film screenings from 8pm including Spice World and Just May Des Geri. Then it’s all aboard for a Spice World Sing-A-Long group karaoke session till late!
