We previously had our launch party for 'When The Kill Code Fails' at the Heath Street Baptist Church, very close to Hampstead tube station.
We have been thinking for a while about how we could put on a concert that felt welcoming to supporters of all ages, including both children and older people. When we were invite back to perform by The Heath Street church, we thought we try out an early afternoon 'music for all ages' event. We welcome accompanied children as well as accompanied or unaccompanied adults to the event. The volume will be a little lower than a traditional gig, rude words will be avoided, and the venue provides seating.
2:00pm Acoustic event.
Malcolm Galloway and Mark Gatland from Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate perform an acoustic set of some of their favourite songs from musicals/rock operas (including Chess and Matilda), and songs relating to childhood from Marillion, Pink Floyd and Tori Amos. I will be playing piano rather than guitar in this stripped back set.
3:00pm Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate
Electric progressive rock duo set, featuring music from our critically acclaimed albums When The Kill Code Fails and Broken But Still Standing.
Tickets £5 adults, £3 concessions (includes entry to both events) on the door, or pre-order adult tickets to bring along up to two children free per adult ticket bought.
Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (child-care facilities not provided).
This event also aims to be dementia aware, and we would like to ensure that those with dementia or other disabilities and their carers feel welcome. If you have any specific disability related needs, please let me know and we can explore how we can best meet them.
Given the presence of young children, it is possible that there might be more background noise than is typical at a traditional concert.
Please note the early afternoon timing. There is a separate event later in the evening featuring the film of Joan of Arc with live organ accompaniment, which we are not directly involved with, but hope to attend.
