For New Year’s Eve, light up the night in our festival-style party of live music, dance, food and drink with Aurora Orchestra and an electrifying lineup of artists: Nico Muhly, Teitur, Lips Choir and Nwando Ebizie (Lady Vendredi).

Under the glow of the northern lights across three distinct spaces, experience a series of live performances, sing along to a 40-strong choir, dance into the new year, and celebrate in a world of luminous wonder designed by our regular collaborator Kate Wicks (The Great Gatsby).

Music on the night ventures to far horizons and unfolds in surprising ways: a rare UK performance by Teitur and Nico Muhly of their song cycle Confessions for voice and Baroque instruments, Terry Riley’s hypnotic minimalist gem In C with Nico on piano, and a string rendition of Bach’s Goldberg Variations that places you in and amongst the performers.

When the clock strikes midnight, we then blow the hinges off the door of 2019 with an explosion of female creativity for our Venus Unwrapped series. The 40-strong all-women Lips Choir join Aurora players in an irresistibly raucous and interactive set of club classics – from disco to UK garage – all newly arranged by Jessie Maryon Davies. Continuing the dance into the small hours, multidisciplinary artist Nwando Ebizie, known for her Afrofuturist music project Lady Vendredi, spins a special set of tunes by pioneering women artists, ranging from Afrobeat icons The Lijadu Sisters to disco queen Donna Summers.

A very special edition of The Lock-In series at Kings Place:

As the lights go down in Hall One, we move across to Hall Two to grab a drink and settle in for a revelatory late-night series. Curated by Aurora Principal Players, each intimate and informal performance takes you on a journey of musical discovery across diverse genres and art forms. Expect eclectic musical encounters that unfold in new and surprising ways, from entering otherworldly dimensions in electronic music to learning the steps to a rip-roaring hoedown to meeting a pterodactyl in the most unlikely of circumstances.
