Afrovibes Festival

Afrovibes Festival, bringing some of the very best of South African arts to the UK and the Netherlands, makes a welcome return to the UK and the Albany this autumn.

In 2014, the festival's biggest-ever programme celebrates 20 years of South African freedom: 20 years since the ending of apartheid and the beginning of democracy. The creativity of award-winning artists brings us music, drama, dance, photography and film, reflecting upon what it is to be part of 21st century South Africa. By turns it'll be thought-provoking, energetic, sad, fascinating, wonderful. With free events, family workshops and themed food served in the atmospheric Township Cafe, drop by, hang out and belong - you'll believe that you really are thousands of miles from home!

"Here is an art that remains fresh and undefined" - 4 out of 5 stars The Telegraph

After the poetry and music fuelled joy-fest that was 'The Big One', we're back at The Albany to flash our freshly starched poetry pants at y'all. As per usual we've got some exciting, meaty treats in store:

JOELLE TAYLORS IN THE HOUSE!!! Joelle is an OG of the spoken word scene. She's been doing this for tiiiiime. Since 1986! She's shared a stage with everyone who's anyone in poetry, from Benjamin Zephaniah to Simon Armitage to Carol Ann Duffy to Scroobius Pip. She is a poet, a playwright, an artisitic Director, a facilitator and a BEAST. Her poetry is visceral, dreamlike, vivid and brilliant. And she rocks a stage like no one else. Come see!

Music Act TBC. But you know it's gonna be good, right?

Doors at 7.30. Dress code: Thursday best.

We can't wait!

Chill Pill is BACK with a brand new show for 2013: Chill Pill Connect.

We're hooking up with The Roundhouse team to create a live, interactive radio show, and we need YOU to get involved.

Chill Pill Connect brings you all the goodness you've come to expect from the Chill Pill Team, the tunes, the banter, and of course, the poetry, but this time there's a twist.

Connect is being recorded and then moulded by the magic of Roundhouse technology, into a full blown spoken word audio feast. And two open mic-ers will have their poems broadcast as a part of the upcoming show.

This is a brand new concept for Chill Pill and we're very excited to offer up and coming artists the opportunity to be involved.

We'll have eight open mic slots but it's guaranteed to fill up so arrive early to secure a place.

See you there!
