The event, organised by a group called Yuppies Out, which claims to stand against gentrification in South London, will involve live music as well as providing free Dairylea cheese slices and White Ace cider. It has been advertised on Facebook, with 336 people saying they plan to attend.
The stated aim of the event “is to try and disturb the yuppie infidels so much that they choke on their rancid fizz and vintage death cheese.”
The wine shop and tasting bar was due to open in Granville Arcade (Brixton Village) some time this week.
Champagne and Bubbles owner Stefano Frigerio, who already owns one branch of Champagne and Fromage in Covent Garden, told Brixton Blog yesterday: “I am worried. I hope they are reasonable. They are entitled to have their views and I respect that, I don’t agree with some on their views.”
Frigerio insisted earlier this year that the controversial new venture “will not be posh”.
The street party will be held just opposite the Coldharbour Lane entrance to Brixton Market.
