We are super stoked to be a part of Independent Venue Week 2019! With this being our 20th year as a music venue we have pulled out all the stops for this momentous collision of occasions.
Monday – Rowan Allen exhibition launch with Special Guests & Ugly
To kick things off for the week we have a new exhibition launching in the upstairs bar, exhibiting the phenomenal photography work of Rowan Allen. She has been a documenter of the scene of new bands and beyond in the UK including Goat Girl, Shame, Gurr, HMLTD, IDLES and much, much more. This is her debut exhibition of prints and she’s helped to curate a special guest headliner and Ugly to come rock the basement for us!
TUESDAY – Creation 23
On Tuesday we have Alan McGee’s Creation 23 records hitting up the basement for a big Tuesday night party! Stay tuned for updates.

Horsey are purveyors of a truly original blend of glam, punk, prog. General musical geniuses, they are joined by LL Burns, a favourite among Londoners near and far.
