Manchester Collective is redefining how a new generation of audiences engage with the arts in the UK. Recently described by the Yorkshire Post as a ‘powerful, moving, & extraordinary’ addition to the UK music scene, Manchester Collective produces world-class, innovative, and outward facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain.
Join Nishla Smith – jazz singer, songwriter, and frequent collaborator of Manchester Collective – as she paints an enchanting vision of a fantasy world in this one-off set for the Cubitt Sessions. Drawing on her new show, What Happened to Agnes, as well as original material from her 2019 EP, Nishla will bewitch and beguile audiences in what promises to be an unforgettable cabaret-inspired summer night out.
For the second time, Kings Place partners with Cubitt Sessions and ventures into the local area, this time in the new shopping district, Coal Drops Yard. The full festival runs from Wednesday 24 July – Sunday 4 August, with 3 days of ‘Kings Place Presents…’ stages, showcasing just a handful of our diverse and eclectic artists, from world music ensemble Kabantu, spectacular sonic theatre with the Perhaps Contraption to high class cabaret and sultry jazz standards from the fast-rising Cherise Adams-Burnett etc. Join us for an electrifying live music programme in one of the largest and most exciting redevelopments in London.
