    Limited advance tickets available here!

    CIRCULUS Circulus are back after a lengthy time away! From their tabards, lutes, Moogs and crumhorns, this is the sound of band with one foot in the past and one in the future. They were the band that re-invented the folk revival of recent years, gaining critical acclaim, for their albums, simply put they are Britain’s number one medieval space rock folk outfit. We’re very proud, nay honored, to host Circulus’ first show in London for nearly a decade, where they shall be exclusively debuting tracks from their brand new album ‘Birth.’ Rejoice!!! https://en-gb.facebook.com/CIRCULUS-157272170793/

    SAM BEER Sam Beer is a beautiful singer songwriter/producer based in London, who also happens to play with the rather excellent band TreeTop Flyers. He will be gracing us with his gorgeous voice and mercurial guitar playing, treating us to his breathtaking folk-rock songs of love, life & loss. Hurrah!https://www.facebook.com/TreetopFlyersBand/

    GREEN WALKER Green Walker brings his New Spirit Music to open proceedings on the night. Fusing cosmic ambient nature with songs and ancient beat textures, he will awaken the dormant voices of our drone ancestors! Om!

    RICHARD NORRIS (DJ Set) Richard Norris is a being of many colours that shines oh so bright! A music maker, producer & remixer of noble repute, he shall set our hearts alight with the finest recorded selections, lovingly handpicked from his legendary collection. He’s gonna play some amazing TUNES!!! He, along with Erol Alkan, are the transmutant psyche lords Beyond The Wizards Sleeve, whose debut album ‘The Soft Bounce’ received much deserved acclaim for it’s kaleidoscope of imaginative outpourings. As The Time & Space Machine, he has remixed the likes of Temples, Jagwar Ma and Warpaint.
