New London venue Drumsheds is gearing up to open its doors in October, and the excitement is building for their first event.

The Tottenham club space will kick things off with a La Discothéque takeover, featuring some of the biggest names in disco and soul music, including Jocelyn Brown and Evelyn “Champagne” King.
