The Bread and Roses - Upcoming

Here is what’s going on this September.

Theatre Thurs 1st-3rd ‘London Zoo’ Following its sell out run, five-star reviews and two awards in 2021, London Zoo returns with a fresh new production. It’s the dawn of the new millennium; print newspapers, which have remained comfortably profitable for centuries are now in crises as the world falls in love with, and adopts, electronic media. In a romp through this newly changing environment, the characters clutch at their established skills to maintain control, resulting in a choppy mutability. The wild final act sees them having a stab at changing the status quo and redefining loyalty, as we learn pain is not always felt at the site of the wound.

Live Music 2nd ‘Bob Collum and The Welfare Mothers’ An esteemed songwriter and established touring act, Collum has shared stages with the likes of Ron Sexsmith, John Hiatt, Andrew Bird and Robert Earle Keen and performed at South by Southwest, Maverick Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival. It may be a broad church to embrace everything from early influences of rockabilly to power pop, however Collum’s palette seamlessly embraces these as if they were corners of the same coin, culminating into a diversity of genres and sounds, in a variety that gels cohesively. Also playing is Jacob Thierry-Simpson. Jacob comes from Liverpool, bringing elements of folk/rock to create his own relaxed, melodic sound. Living in South London, he intends to bring folk style guitar back to the music scene. 

Theatre Thurs 8th-10th ‘Muiltistories: New Writing Festival’ Multistory productions present their first festival of new writing: ‘Multi Stories’. Three themes over three evenings. Superheroes, Identity and Pleasure. Join  us for new stories, new talent and new conversations. Multistory Productions recently produced ‘Speak.’ by Lewis Wood at The Cockpit and Paines Plough’s Roundabout Festival in association with Rose Theatre. On the last evening after the show we are also inviting all audiences and participants across any of the three nights to join us for networking and music downstairs in the bar!

Live Music Fri 9th ‘Really Its Fine’ are an emo/shoegaze four piece from London Their main inspirations hail from the likes of Modern Baseball to My Bloody Valentine while having the spoken word elements of Black Country, New Road in their sound. Also playing are Dasit and Increscent. This is a ticketed event for £4, what a bargain!
Live Music Sat 10th ‘Glastonbury Post Party’ We had an absolute storm of a show at this years Glastonbury festival. So we want to be able to share it with all closer to home here in Clapham. They’ll be live performances from Naia, Ruby Wednesday and DJ’s till late!

Theatre Thurs 15th-17th ‘A Midsummers Night Dream’ Take a trip into one of Shakespeare's classic comedies, in this version 12 actors will play over 20 roles. Set in a modern Britain, tackling love in many sources. 

Live Music Thurs 15th ‘Live Music Fundraiser’ featuring bands ‘Cant stop Talking’, ‘Louis and the Shakes’ and ‘Sirene’. Its going to be a cracking night of live music all in aid of a great cause.

Live Music Fri 16th ‘Yas’ Born and raised in Montreal, Canada originally from Morocco and currently residing in London, England, YAZ discovered his passion for the guitar, piano, singing and songwriting in early 2020. YAZ creates music to promote happiness and well-being to all who listen, all while singing from the heart. Also playing is Dan Hoyes. With a distinct display of sonic loops and percussive beats, Dan’s sets are entirely composed of sounds from a live acoustic guitar. Reminiscent of downtempo electronic acts like Bonobo, Four Tet and Lemon Jelly – but with his own experimental techniques – expect to find Dan playing the guitar as a drum or even with a violin bow, using samplers and effects to create textures that are not usually heard live from a solo artist.

Live Music Sat 17th ‘Luke Concannon’ a singer-song writer described by the BBC as ‘Political, intense, angular and beautiful’. We also have live music from David Leopold.

Theatre Mon 19th-20th ‘Up to Scratch’ Pomona Theatre is proud to present new writing across the board, in this one evening mixture of provocative, heartfelt and hilarious short plays and monologues showcasing new talent from all walks of life. Bringing together new writers, actors and directors, this evening will showcase work touching on topics such as LGBTQ+, womanhood, and grief.

Live Music Wed 21st  ‘The Bread Jam’ a Jam session for improvised music. Bring your Instruments and lyrics, all are welcome!

Theatre Thurs 22nd-Oct 1st ‘Clapham Fringe 2022’ The Clapham Fringe is a Performing Arts Festival produced by and taking place at The Bread & Roses Theatre. Over three weeks the Clapham Fringe hosts dozens of productions with around 45-50 performances altogether, including theatre, comedy, cabaret, musicals, family shows and more! With something for everyone at this growing festival the Clapham Fringe is a great opportunity to discover and experience an exciting line-up of performances in the vibrant South West London area.

Live Music Fri 23rd ‘Naytiive’ Bringing a new wave of funk/pop music to the UK, NATiiVE 26 based in Hornsey London, mixes infectious melodies with a high octane live performance, full of charisma.

Live Music Sat 24th ‘The Voodoo Tweed Cult of your Mum’ Fun, interactive, croud pleasing and high energy with lots of audience participation. The Voodoo Tweed Cult of Your Mum are bunch of guys and gals playing a mash-up of fast paced,slam-grass-folk-polka-punk covers and originals. Also playing we have Little Terry, an original solo acoustic Punk-folk artist from Doncaster who plays with passion, energy and humour. He writes songs about the humorous side of life as well as tackling more taxing subjects. Politics and bullies get a good thrashing alongside relationships problems, the media and farting. He throws in the odd cover from the likes of The Ramones, Rancid and the Clash to Johnny Cash, Slade and Dolly Parton. Good time music with heart.

Live Music 25th ‘The Blues Jam’ Deep rooted blues in the heart of Clapham. The Jam is kicked off by 4 piece band with harmonica great Errol Linton and exceptional guitarist Dave Wilson, both who’ve been around in the music scene for years. Not to be missed!
