Tell us your Guilty Pleasure and WIN!


Would you walk over hot coals for the taste of the perfect burger? Would you? You must really like them then.

What’s your Guilty Pleasure? Come on, be honest we’ve all got one. Some of us have several. But we aren’t here to judge. No, we’re hear to celebrate and we want to hear about your Guilty Pleasures and the lengths in which you go to to enjoy them.

We’re after the best tales and stories of indulging in your desires and our favourite ones will bag you VIP tickets for you and three mates to a Guilty Pleasures night of your choice* AND we’ll publish your prize-winning story on our blog and tell the world about it. Email your story to info@guiltypleasures.co.uk with MY GUILTY PLEASURE in the subject and over the next few months we’ll be picking out and publishing winners galore!

They don’t have to be musical, it can be a love affair with shoes or cheese or a fixation with fashion, but nothing too mucky of course. We are respectable members of society after all…

Do your friends know about the extremes you go to in your pursuit of pleasure? Does your partner know you still can’t stop buying dreadful Take That merchandise off ebay and you have been bribing the postman to deliver elsewhere for months? Did you walk three miles in driving wind and rain for your last ever Woolies pick and mix? No that would be ridiculous wouldn’t it! Who would do that? Can’t think anyone could be so stupid about confectionary.

If this sounds familiar and you fancy bagging yourself a free night out on us, then confess! Tell all about your Guilty Pleasure! You’ll feel better when you do, promise!

TELL YOUR TALES NOW

Rocking all over the world (South east of England)

We’re all over the place this weekend, but naturally in a disco-dazzling way. Not rolling around on the pavement clutching cans of Kestrel and cheap fags. Although that does sound good.

Nope, we’ve got a gig marathon weekend lined up and we’d love you to come along a cheer us on. Here’s where we’ll be:

SATURDAY 2ND JULY


Trafalgar Square in that London

PRIDE

We’re proud to say we’re opening the Pride celebrations in London’s Trafalgar Square as hopefully the sun beams down on us and people get so overexcited they frolic in the fountains.

On stage from 2pm a power packed punch of pop featuring Hot Gusset, the DreamBears and Anna Greenwood doing the dancing and playing the records to make to get in that jeffing fountain. What larks!

BRIGHTON


Club Tropicana drinks are free…

Then later that day we’re off on the train to the seaside of Brighton for our Club Tropicana Beach Party at Concorde 2. That’s right we’re bringing the outside inside and not via dog poo on our shoes. No no, this is pure sunshine indoors with an all out holiday knees up on the sea shore.

Party starts at 10.30pm giving you all day to work on that impressive tan to look super fly in your cozzie of choice. Hooray!

GET TICKETS HERE

SUNDAY 3RD JULY


Get mega helpings of GP at the Big Feastival

Then when Sunday comes around, we’re rolling up at Clapham Common for Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival. That’s a festival of food and music, what on EARTH could be better?

Holding court on the Band Stand Stage, Guilty Pleasures will be there all day in full force alongside the delights of Bikini Beach Band, Levi Roots and the Cuban Brothers. Hot Gusset will be getting you all up and on your feet no doubt, helping shift some of the cake weight we’ll have piled on in the afternoon.

Elsewhere you can find Athelete, the Bees, Lily Allen’s Lucy in Disguise pop-up shop, Super top chefs aplenty cooking up a storm and Peppa Pig! Well what more could one ever wish for?

It all kicks off from 11am. Read more about Big Feastival here and get yourself a ticket over here.

Coo wee, worra weekend.

Christmas drink of the day – Mulled Cider


Mulled Cider, or a version of

It’s cold. it’s Christmas. No one’s done the shopping. Let’s go to the pub!

And what do we find? Seasonal drinks that for now are the best inventions ever, so let’s have a few.

Taking the top spot today is Mulled Cider. It’s fizzy and hot at the same time. Sounds disgusting doesn’t it? It isn’t! It works! Cinnamon and orange and fizz and alcohol in one delicious drink! Best one is found at the Social on Little Portland Street in that London. Go get yourself one.

Oh so what if you live in Scotland / France / Russia – it’s worth the trip and you get the added bonus of some Christmas shopper elbowing you in the face round Oxford Circus. Joy to the world.
