REMEMBER Takeover @ The South Pole Saloon

It was great being invited down to the South Pole Saloon to host a REMEMBER Takeover on 2nd Dec.

The South Pole Saloon, a brand new Xmas pop-up in Brixton, encompassed perfectly some of the things REMEMBER stands for: Street food, live art, in a unique London Space.

The night was a great success with over 350 people coming through the door, which on a Wednesday night is always good to see.

As usual, REMEMBER co-founders and residents, DJs Eddie Abbott, Jack Demeester and Mr Shiver, provided the eclectic soundtrack, playing everything from reggae, funk and house music. The SPS was rocking all night long, and it was wicked to see people vibing off the music even outside in the street food area while tucking into one of the butter chicken burgers from Butchies (so good).

As the night moved forward, there was a proper family feel amongst everyone, REMEMBER crew and newcomers alike. I think the festive honey Jack Daniels cocktails might have had something to do with that!

A real treat came at about 8.30pm in the form of the Candy Caner Girls, who it was rumoured had escaped from the North Pole in search of a party! They definitely provided that; with their wicked live performance and debauchery moves, the roof inside the saloon was getting hot!

The tone was set and everyone was in the mood to party, so the REMEMBER DJs picked up the pace and the place was popping off very nicely.

We always try to encompass the message behind our events, which is to get people talking about male suicide and with the help of our CALM volunteers the CALM station was busy all night with loads of people asking more about what we stand for and what CALM are trying to achieve.

Sad to see the night come to a close, but buzzing at another huge REMEMBER success, with over £700 raised on the night! Huge thanks to everyone who came down.
