The new Kings Cross Wc1X venue Jamboree at 6 St. Chads Place has now got a full evening programme. after receiving its evening operation licence from Camden. It is an impressive programme and they offer special rates for people on low incomes. London Kings Cross WC1X can call itself lucky. We now host the Big Chill, Scala, The Water Rats,the Queen’s Head and the Jamboree as major venues with music and art programmes. Jamboree also offers Persian Cousine from Wednesday to Sunday. Quality Middle Eastern Food was a real market gap in this area.
