Archive : Website Launch Party


To celebrate the launch of our spangly new website we held a big old gig party and everyone was invited, with many thanks to Neo Optic, Richard Brown and Silvestri Studios. We are rather in love with this little beast and wanted to throw a big old gig/party to celebrate with some very VERY important people playing. We have asked (nearly) all of our favourite musicians, poets, comedians and downright wonderful people to come play and help us celebrate this very special day with us. It’s a real landmark moment for us as we have been beavering away on it behind the scenes now for quite a while now. Its been a real labour of love for all involved, from the talented team at Neo Optic who built the mechanics of it all, to the rather splendiferous and gorgeous design work from Richard Brown. We have been furiously adding every event and every artist we have ever booked (over 200 shows, over 150 musicians, poets and comedians) into the website. This means you can see EVERY SINGLE PERSON we have ever had the privilege to put on, all of you lovely artist folks gets a whole page with to yourself. Why? Cos we freakin love you, as we do with every person we ask to perform. All of this info is linked in a very clever way that means you can see just how many times we have put them on too! Woozers!! But, in the interest of theatrics… we have gone and hidden it from you till the official launch on Friday 2nd September!! Cheeky I know eh? If you managed a peek before this point then I doff my cap to you but until the launch you won’t again… tee hee hee. £1 before 7.30pm, £3 / £2 thereafter FREE ENTRY IF YOU HAVE EVER PERFORMED FOR SOAPBOX Please email to book
