Offering an enticing alternative to Notting Hill Carnival, House of Common is the brainchild of 80s Ska sensations Madness. Celebrating like-minded artists with music on London’s Clapham Common, the day-long party welcomes a plethora of talent from across the reggae, dancehall and dub world, offering a family friendly spin on one of London’s biggest days of music.
Clapham Common is a popular choice for inner-city festivals looking to host music in London, and House of Common takes full advantage by bringing its legendary hosts to the big stage for a rare performance. Blessed by a musical legacy that still holds to this day, Madness command plenty of respect, and so it’s no surprise that each year they’re able to attract huge artists like Toots and the Maytals, Ms Dynamite, David Rodigan and De La Soul to perform.
South London urban park Clapham Common is a 220 acre patch of green space, centred around a bandstand and boosted by the presence of three ponds. Enjoying a range of sporting facilities and some historical features including the Grade II listed bandstand, the park is a scenic spot amidst the cityscape, and a lovely setting for the likes of South West Four and House of Common.
