Simon Fell, Alexandra Palace events director, says: “We can’t wait to offer a proper celebration of summer at the Palace. If you fancy a drink, some quality food and a good old dance this is a pretty much the perfect place to be. Throw in the sunshine and the views and StrEATlife promises a couple of cracking summer weekends.”
