Gwyneth Herbert and Noemie Ducimetiere at Campfire Club
Filling London’s green spaces with music, unamplified, outdoors, around a fire, Campfire Club is a unique path for discovering music and London’s hidden nature sanctuaries. From May to September, each week takes you on a worldwide musical journey through the city, with a series of carefully curated, unamplified concerts.
Having searched far and wide for those rare outdoor spaces where open campfires are allowed, as well as the perfect balance of nature and seclusion, there are nine carefully mapped sites across the city, covering the four corners, including; Bethnal Green, Bow, Shoreditch, Islington, Kings Cross, Queens Park, Stockwell, Peckham, and Brockley.
Join us for an evening of inventive and original music from an incredible all-female line-up, featuring Gwyneth Herbert and Noemie Ducimetiere.
