Cubitt Sessions programme announced

Posted: Thursday 21st July 2016

Following in the footsteps of last year’s Panarmonion stage and bar, King’s Cross has another exciting programme of music and performance this summer: Cubitt Sessions.

The pop-up venue, with a bar run by Green and Fortune, will open at King’s Cross from 30 July –13 August, with free performances from renowned contemporary and classical artists – running almost every evening in the two week programme.

The spectacular custom built structure will create a theatre for those in Lewis Cubitt Square to enjoy a host of classical, opera and contemporary musicians from the London Sinfonietta to Bombay Rickey Opera Cabaret, Mozart’s Flute concertos and improvised opera by Tete a Tete, and Opera Cabaret and experimental jazz (full programme details below).

The bar, serving a selection of drinks and snacks, will be open during performances. Expect a relaxed ambience, perfect for hazy summer evenings!

Speaking about the programme, Anna Strongman from Argent (King’s Cross), said:

“King’s Cross is delighted to present renowned contemporary and classical artists in this free music series. Usually performing in the biggest venues, this year’s line-up of international artists will entertain visitors in this unique and intimate setting. Visitors can also enjoy alfresco drinks and delicious food in the summer evening, while soaking up an electric series of performances.”
