The Embers Collective Open Day

Calling all artists, musicians, poets, spoken word artists, performers, clowns, dancers, singers, actors, puppeteers, tellers of tales, weavers of worlds, and anyone else who'd like to get involved or just watch...

We will be hosting a fun, informal day of sharing, performing, playing, singing, chatting, inspiring, dancing and storytelling. Come with ideas, suggestions, pieces, works in progress, epic tales, twists, dance moves or just eyes and ears to see what everyone else is up to.

This is also open to an audience- so if people want to come and just watch you are more than welcome. We just ask that you are respectful and open to this being more about process than a finished product.

And it's FREE.

Midwinter Tales, with The Embers Collective

"When the winter winds blow and the Yule fires are lit, it is best to stay indoors, safely shut away from the dark paths and the wild heaths."

For millennia, we have gathered together at this time of year, warming around a fire to mark the changing of the seasons. Around those fires, stories are told. Whatever we think we are or where we come from, the need for this experience remains.

So on the eve of the Winter Solstice, come warm yourself with The Embers Collective, for a delightful evening of midwinter tales and music. Be a part of the age-old, global tradition of getting cosy with your friends, sharing songs, stories and maybe even enjoying a drink or two.

Location: A Secret Warehouse location, N15- the exact address will be emailed to you nearer the event.

We will have food and drink available.

Tales From The Other Side
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

Tales From The Other Side

At the Celtic celebration of Samhain, when the year is entering its dark half, it was believed that the veil between this world and The Otherworld was at its thinnest. It was a time when the dead could walk the streets, crossing the boundary from the otherworld. Ancestors were honoured and invited into the home, while fires were lit to ward off evil spirits who aimed to cause harm. 

With the sun's strength fading, Donn Lord of The Underworld would take to the land of the living, bringing with him the living dead...

Through stories and music, The Embers Collective will take you on a journey into The Otherworld, with tales that will make you tingle, shiver and shake. Let's welcome in the darker half of the year together, and keep the lights burning to protect us from those from beyond, who tonight walk amongst us.

As always, the show will be followed by a wonderful Music Tree jam, lead by our very own Tim Karp.

Pagan folklore is filled with stories of strong, fighting women and goddesses.
