Schedule: 

7.30pm to 8.30pm: OPEN JAM [all musicians, MCs, poets, are invited to improvise with some of London’s leading young talent. Photography and videography available throughout for those looking for portfolio additions.]

8.30pm – 9.30pm: Key Changes – the worlds first mental health music label – showcases their incredible roster of artists who have used music through their mental health recovery. These are amazing artists seldom given the space they deserve, which this night serves to rectify.

9.30pm – 10.15pm: Ben Wickins and his band are ridiculous. They effortlessly switch between soul, hard-rock, and the rawness of UK beats. Featuring top tier musicians from London’s community, tight-knit improv and razor sharp songwriting. Their set really is special, and needs to be seen. 

10.30pm – late. OPEN JAM. This is where we get wild and experimental. Strictly improv. All are welcome. Hosted by Mandeep.
