Society of Imaginary Friends

Present… Beltane Birthday Soiree

I was taking the escalator over the hill…hang on… something’s burning… It’s our Beltane Birthday Soiree on the 4th May!!! The extraordinary Alfie Thomas has hit a very significant number of earth years…

Oh what a dancing dragon of a party we have in store for YOU… Yee Hah!!! Our star studded night includes the fantastic John Moore (Black Box Recorder, Express Way and Jesus and the Mary Chain) performing a couple of his hits from his new album Knickerbocker Glory.

“Couched in shimmering rock, Sixties girl-group pop and even a touch of operatic soprano on Anne of a Thousand Days, this is a literary pop gem.” The Times

Guess who the operatic soprano is?

Punk legend virtuosic saxophonist John Glyn (X-ray specs and Wreckless Eric ) will be astounding us with his magical improvisation weaving his beautiful tones with the incomparable virtuosic guitarist Richard Bolton their inspiration is the vibe of the night we all have a part to play in creating something totally original.

The beautiful, soulful Magdalena Grabher will be looping her intricate musical motifs to create ethereal soundscapes and gorgeous songs, the wonderful highly acclaimed poetess Lady Amy Neilson Smith and master of woodwind Sir William Summers (Circulus, Princes in the Tower) will be astounding us with their Shakespearian inspired set.

Award winning spoken word performer Cian Binchy will be making us think, catch him before he takes his sell out show Madness re:Exit to Manchester for a month.

Urban punk goddess I am Her will be performing songs from her brand new album, the superb Math Jones will be sharing his Beltane musings, welcoming to the Soiree mystery new poet Charlie and author Samuel Bates, special guest DJ TBA and special Birthday songs from Society of Imaginary Friends.

Fabulous Vegan cuisine by Roger and Kathy – it is also Rogers Birthday!!

Lords & Ladies of Misrule Soiree

He rolls into town drunk as a skunk trembling Chihuahua on his shoulder and rattle snakes for scarves.

He winks at the sun and collapses in paroxysms of laughter as the gullible gather round to buy his dubious wares he is the ‘Medicine Man’ curled up under the stars and the Appellation moon.

He is our April Fool, the Duke of Disorder, the paradise quack of chaos and we will be dancing the hallucinogenic hoedown with him at our Medicinal April Fool Soiree.

Our very own Lord of Misrule Mr Alfie Thomas will be guiding the proceedings, a fabulous line-up which includes:

  • Lady Lovely Lute aka Stephanie Feeney who will whisper Medieval somethings in your ear, she will lull you into a false sense of sweetness and drop some Belladonna in your tea,
  • the Rainbow warrior himself Kosmic Troubadour,
  • Poet Millie George radical princess of Soho,
  • Cian Binchy fresh from his sell-out show Madhouse re: Exit in Shoredich Town Hall,
  • poet extraordinaire Debra Watson will be performing her beautiful verse with a bite,

You would be a fool to miss it!!!
