This summer join us by the campfire to hear extraordinary music live from the comfort of your homes.
Each broadcast will be presented by your host, folk singer Sam Lee, who will introduce you to the two artists performing around the campfire on that evening. We are thrilled to share the line up of outstanding artists who we will be featuring across the series:
We are very excited to be bringing the magic of music and nature to you during these housebound times. Your digital ticket will grant you access to the private video stream, live on the evening and for a period of three days following the live broadcast.
These online shows are a lockdown alternative to our much-loved Campfire Club series, which would usually run throughout the summer in London and other cities across the UK. If lockdown easing and regulations allow, we hope to be able to open these Campfire Club gigs to limited live audiences, safely distanced and safeguarded. If this is possible, we will be offering our digital ticket holders priority booking to live tickets for this limited number of summer gigs, which would take place in beautiful green spaces in London, Bristol and Sheffield. Watch this space...
