There are not too many places in London where you can watch a good year’s worth of shows in one weekend for a paltry £4.50 per gig! You may be pleased to learn that great entertainment, which is favourable to your wallet, can be found at the Kings Place festival in September.
The Kings Place opened to the public in 2008 and due to its diverse programme soon established itself as a leading cultural European landmark. This dynamic, award-winning building is now considered as being one of London’s hubs for dialogue, music, art and food.
Every September the Kings Place hosts a diverse music and arts festival and 2013 promises to be the best one yet!
In fact with poetry, comedy, music and other interesting acts suiting a huge range of tastes, diversity certainly sums up the Kings Place Festival 2013. To wash down a heady day of watching some of the finest poets, comedians, orchestras and musicians, you can refresh yourself by joining in the chocolate tasting and beer tasting events – no, don’t worry, not together!
While the arts and the spoken word is fundamentally regarded being an adult’s domain, children are heavily catered for ay the Kings Place Festival. From making some great paper flowers from recycled paper at the Craft Closet to exploring the magical world of Debussy with some of the principle players of the Aurora Orchestra, there are plenty of workshops designated for the youngest members of society.
Musician Sasha Siem was identified by the Guardian newspaper as an artist to watch out for this year. Sasha will be playing songs from her debut album ‘Most of the boys’ on the final day of the Kings Place Festival 2013.
Also performing on the festival’s final day is Britain’s premier comedy troupe ‘The Noise Next Door’, who are tipped to become comedy’s next big thing.
Or if learning more about the dark, seductive and secret art of chocolate gets your pulse racing then ‘Raven, the String Quartet that Rocks’ might be right up your street.
Whatever it is that lights your artistic fire, you will find it here at the Kings Place Festival 2013.
The festival will take place from 13 – 15 September, 2013. For more information and to book tickets, visit the website at kingsplace.co.uk/festival.
