Music Makers Festival at the Omnibus Theatre

SEEN hears that the team behind Albert Man is organising a two-day independent music festival at Clapham’s Omnibus Theatre on the 5th and 6th August.

Very much a collaborative labour of love from Albert Man and his manager Manoja Ullmann, the festival will feature the musicians that the pair has got to know and appreciate over the years.

If you haven’t been to the Omnibus Theatre already, it’s a wonderfully atmospheric venue in Clapham Old Town, a converted Victorian Library and local cultural hub in South London.

Sixteen talented acts include Michele Stodart, Prose, Tom Speight, Dani Sylvia, Albert Man, Up Down Go Machine, Anna Pancaldi, Brian McGovern, Tara Lee, The City and Us, Belle Roscoe, Adam Masterson, Ilona, Mark Sullivan, Matt Perriment, and Steve Young. You can get Early Bird tickets in advance or tickets on the day for Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th.

It’s rather marvellous to think that a music festival is so accessible. SEEN applauds the use of such an intimate venue; it’s live music as it’s meant to be heard.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
