Initially launching with a calender of events taking place monthly on Thursday nights, STAND! will be bringing headline contemporary music to the Arnhem Gallery - one of South London's largest flat floor spaces. The opening series of gigs features soul, funk, reggae, ska and R&B and clearly shows the commitment to bringing diverse artists to a genuine mid-sized venue in South London. With new staging, great lighting and sound, plus the Arnhem Gallery bar open, STAND! is already generating an amazing response from the musicians involved but also great anticipation from gig-goers of some fantastic nights ahead.
"Fairfield Halls has a long and proud tradition of hosting some of the best of contemporary music from it's opening in 1962 right through to the modern era. However, the concert hall which seats 1500 people is not always the right environment for acts that benefit from a less formal and more relaxed form of presentation. The Arnhem Gallery is the ideal space to create a new standing hall for music from new and established acts.
STAND! is made for audiences who just want to come and hear excellent music in a relaxed bar atmosphere - building a great new music scene....with the odd surprise!"
Simon Thomsett, CEO, Fairfield Halls.
STAND! is a joint promotion between the Fairfield Halls and One Tree Ltd.
