The House of St Barnabas and Eat Your Own Ears present Festival Embassy
Sat, 6 May 2017, 17:00 – Sun, 7 May 2017, 01:00 BST
The House of St Barnabas are proud to present Festival Embassy, an evening of entertainment curated with Eat Your Own Ears, bringing the feel and atmosphere of London’s much loved Field Day.
Discover dazzling acoustic music in a gothic Chapel and dance in a secret garden to live DJ sets at this magical micro-festival in a historic townhouse in London’s Soho.
We believe in paying it forward; for every ticket bought, one will be given to someone who would not be able to afford one themselves, opening access to culture, live music and our home in Soho with social inclusion at its heart.
Pay it forward tickets will be given to people affected by homelessness, who are part of the House's Employment Academy, the Soho community, or are supported by one of the many charities we work with.
Bristol-based singer and songwriter Stevie Parker says, “As a musician I feel it is a moral responsibility to promote equal opportunities. It's a tough world scarce of opportunity out there for most musicians, let alone the homeless.”
