Coffee And Ceilidh At Kings Place Festival
The Night Shift presents classical music, minus the rules

Kings Place always has an eclectic vibe. Musicians of all genres perform alongside radical authors, with art, food, comedy and spoken word all going on in the same building.

This heady mix has been harnessed for the Kings Place Festival programme — happening 11-13 September — which features everything from canal trips to comedy.

Pianist Jeffrey Siegel brings classical music into the mainstream, making it something that everyone can enjoy. Oxford Professor of Logic Timothy Williamson stretches the brain cells with a Saturday morning excursion into philosophy, while those who prefer to start their morning with coffee can do just that.

Gin guzzlers will be right at home with a chance to learn about and taste different variations of the spirit, and make your own gin cocktail.

The Ceilidh Liberation Front brings a touch of Scotland to proceedings, with Brazilian samba and Spanish slamenco also thrown into the festival pot.

Selected events are free, including performances by the Kings Place Choir, live painting, a family newspaper workshop and kids cupcake decorating.

Kings Place Festival takes place 11-13 September. Most events are £6.50, some are free. All need booking in advance.
