Celebrating 15 years on Little Portland St every Friday night – soul, disco, house, hip hop, dancehall, rock n roll, afrobeat and more

Guests playing alongside the Heavenly Jukebox so far this year have included Fatboy Slim, Justin Robertson, Raf Daddy (2 Bears), Sean Johnston, Dave Maclean (Django Django), Richard Fearless, Nadia Ksaiba, Jamie Reynolds (Klaxons), Dan Beaumont, Tim Burgess, DJ Die, Jon Carter, Hannah Holland and more.
. . . Believe in magic
Nearly 20 years ago The Social was born just up the road from our current home on Little Portland Street. Back then, it was a thirteen week run of Sunday evening sessions in the basement of the Albany; glorious chaos, week in week out. The Heavenly Sunday Social was the Chemical Brothers first London residency (they were the Dust Brothers then); support came from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Tricky, Tim Burgess, David Holmes, Justin Robertson and many others. There was no genre, just good music. Eighteen months later, the Social took over legendary subterranean venue Turnmills (RIP) for three years every week before opening its doors on Little Portland Street in 1999.
