To use its common title, ‘The BRITS’ has always had wider appeal with a generous helping of apres and music. Featuring this year, the much talked about Famous First Words takes its sell-out show overseas, and be sure to pack your maracas for Mexican Night. Taking it into the small hours and playing live are dance act Flirtini who have graced Coachella Festival and hip-hop duo Rasmentalism.
