Mambista – Fri 22 Jan 2016

Our Mambista nights are a totally fabulous way to groove the night away – and we always have loads planned for the fourth Friday of the month in the warm embrace of the Portico Gallery.

We’re back on Fri 22nd January and the evening kicks off again with a Salsa dance class at 7pm to loosen up those limbs and get boogie-ing!

At 8pm Gerry Lyseight picks up the mood with DJ duties on either side of live music.  This month we’re loving the return of Soothsayers – who did the business when they made their Mambista debut in May and they’re back as our first band of 2016 to help warm up a freezing January with their funk, Afrobeat and deep dub.

19.00- midnight.  Salsa class 19.00-20.00hrs.  Mambista from 20.00 til midnight.

Click on the PayPal “Add to Cart” button above to pay just £6, in advance or £8 on the door (both prices include the salsa dance class).

Christmas Ceilidh

Friday 19th December is going to be so festive you will be inclined to dance your socks off!

Folk of the Wood return for their final Ceilidh of 2014 and we are sure if the last one was anything to go by this thing will raise the roof…

Maz O’connor plays, she’s a rising star in the folk world and has had nothing but outstanding reviews from the likes of the Guardian, Q magazine and The Independent. A big big name on the folk scene.

The Northwood Morris will be with us to perform their wondrous dancings!

There will be food by the great people down at Beamish and McGlue, mulled wine, carols and many festive surprises.

Get your tickets from FOLK OF THE WOOD website NOW! … the last one sold out weeks before the event so do buy them soon to avoid missing out on this ‘riotous’ Ceildh, we think it is the best in London, but then we are a little biased…
