Folk In A Box

Intimate 1-2-1 music experience

Folk in a Box is the UK’s smallest performance venue. One audience member is allowed in at a time. The door is closed behind them. They are given one song, performed by one musician. By the time the song is the over, the musician is just about visible in the darkness and intimacy of the box. The experience is compelling.

The Summer Prizewinner’s Picnic Recital

The last time the brilliant young Russian pianist Roman Kosyakov played in Hastings in early March the town was covered in snow and ice and being lashed by a bitingly cold wind generated by the Beast from the East. Dominika Hicks writes.
