Hosting first-class get-togethers to celebrate the year’s biggest festivals is one of our very favourite things to do. Recently, we had the privilege of having hundreds of you join us to mark the joyous festival of light that is Diwali, and now, the jovial spirit of Christmas is upon us. Lights are twinkling, the scent of mulled wine is wafting through the air and many parties are afoot, and we are thrilled to invite you to another special event.
On Thursday 16th December from 6pm – 8pm, we'll be taking over Amazing Grace, a wonderful new live music venue, and renovated seventeenth century church, in London Bridge for a fantastically festive evening of hearty Christmas carolling.
Led by a wonderful choir and accompanied by the piano, many classic carols and festive favourites will be belted out. Friends and family are all invited to come along, sing their hearts out and leave feeling warm, festive, and full of mince pies! There's room for singers of all timbres and tones, so we do hope you'll join us.
All tickets are £5 and proceeds will be donated to Magic Breakfast, one of our truly wonderful charity partners who do life-changing work providing free morning meals to children who may otherwise go hungry.
The sun is momentarily out again. Calendars are fast filling up. There’s many a thing to do and many a friend to meet. And if we may kindly add to the excitement and the plan-making, here’s our list of what we’re looking forward to in September.
While we were at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, we caught Evening Conversations, an engaging show by Sudha Bhuchar. We caught up with her after the show to talk about her journey and her views on South Asian representation on screen, which you can read below. And for those who didn’t walk down the cobbled streets of the city or stumble into an impromptu performance this year, we highly recommend it for 2024.
Each year as August dawns, the streets and rooms and corners of Edinburgh fill with music, art, laughter and song. Wander into grand halls and pokey pubs, as the morning sun rises or in the dark of night, to see creations of every kind as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In honour of this wonderful celebration of the performing arts (and as a little treat), here’s a special edition Dishoom Loves, covering all the acts we’ve circled on our festival programme.
