The House of St Barnabas
1 Greek Street, London, Soho, London, W1D 4NQ
17:00pm until 1:00am
The House of St Barnabas is 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 to the heart of Soho.
On Saturday 6th May, London based promoters Eat Your Own Ears – creators of London’s Field Day Festival - will join forces with The House of St Barnabas, bringing the festival to the centre of Soho for one evening only. This micro-festival is the second in the Festival Embassy series, followed by the intimate, globally-minded musical get-together Worldwide Festival, at the end of May. Festival goers can expect a dynamic line up from Eat Your Own Ears, with intimate sets from James Yorkston and Stevie Parker in the stunning gothic chapel, DJ sets from The Invisible, Flamingods and Field Day DJs, plus very special guests TBA shortly. Guests can enjoy a film screening of songwriter Leon Russell’s mesmerising documentary ‘A Poem Is a Naked Person’, supplied by Deeper Into Movies, an evening full of energetic and uplifting acts, and festival food served up in the magical courtyard garden.
Festivalgoers can purchase tickets for Festival Embassy through a ‘Pay it Forward’ scheme. For every ticket bought one will be given to participants or graduates of the House’s Employment Academy. Further tickets will be distributed via the referral agencies that work closely with the charity, and local Soho-based organisations that are also working to break the cycle of homelessness. Tickets to the micro-festival are just £15 and are available from www.hosb.org.uk/tickets
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.”
Festival Embassy at The House of St Barnabas will see the charity partner with some of the most diverse festivals around, bringing attendees the full festival experience in a vibrant corner of Soho; a beautiful historic Georgian townhouse and French Gothic chapel, with a drive to end the cycle of homelessness at its heart.
