Festival Embassy is our series of micro-festivals in the heart of London’s Soho.
We’ve partnered with founding members of our not-for-profit club; Rob da Bank’s Bestival and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival, and with Tom Baker’s Eat Your Own Ears (Field Day).
We heard rising stars (and a few surprise special appearances) perform intimate acoustic gigs in our atmospheric Chapel, danced to sets from renowned and emerging DJs and much more festival-fun besides, all in the unique setting of our Grade I listed Georgian townhouse.
We believe in paying it forward.
For every ticket bought, one is 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 our Employment Academy, the Soho community, or are supported by one of the many charities we work with.
Festival Embassy x Worldwide Festival, transported the globally minded musical get-together from the South of France to the heart of Soho for one evening only.
We brought you an evening of unforgettable music, with live music from KidKatharsis, Mali Hayes, Yazmin Lacey and Three Body Trio and DJ sets from Medikul, Munro, Jake from Upstairs and many many more!
Alongside live music and DJ sets…
Chef Ed Wilson of East London neighbourhood favourite Brawn collaborated with Head Chef Nick Wyborn at The House of St Barnabas to create a French-seaside inspired menu, served street-food style in our delightful courtyard, bringing the flavours of Worldwide Festival to guests for one special night.
Festival Embassy x Eat Your Own Ears brought you the feel and atmosphere of London’s much loved Field Day.
Dazzling acoustic music from James Yorkston, Stevie Parker and Martin Creed filled our gothic Chapel, live DJ sets from The Invisible, Flamingods and Field Day DJs had us dancing deep into the night and a live screening of Les Blanc’s notorious documentary ‘A Poem is a Naked Person’ mesmerised audiences.
