Mambista events at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses have become highlights of the summer, described as “magical” with very good reason. BPCG is a beautiful setting, the music - live and recorded - is ‘broader than Broadway’ and always top notch, the food - from Carey's Kitchen - is scrumptious and the events attract sell-out crowds ranging from toddlers to the ‘more mature’.
