If you’re brave enough to drag yourselves away from the Hollyoaks omnibus and brave the cold this coming Sunday (11th January), you’ll be able to catch The Leisure Society and Emmy The Great perform a small set. Both acts are booked to film a ‘Bandstand Busking’ session which will take place at Northampton Square bandstand in Islington at 12 noon. Click here for directions.
