It’s 2001. Garage is the anthem of the UK. Nadia feels like it’s her time to shine.

A hot summer’s night of love promises endless possibilities. Swept up in drinking, dancing, hope, ambition, lust, greed… Nadia will make decisions that will determine the rest of her life.

Rhythmically underscored by your favourite UK Garage bangers. This is theatre you can rave to.

Sabrina Mahfouz brings all those garage music memories flooding back in her hit theatre show With A Little Bit of Luck. Following a sell-out run at The Last Word 2016, the show returns to the festival, this time turning our Main Space into a full-on garage rave with the help of sets from UK Garage legends DJ Luck and MC Neat, Mighty Moe of The Heartless Crew and DJ Steady.

Part of the Last Word Festival.

The Little Orchestra present Eroica @ Oval Space / Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May 2017

Doors: 7pm (last admission 8pm, concert 8:30pm)

@ Oval Space, 29-32 The Oval, London E2 9DT

Tickets: from £15 book online

www.thelittleorchestra.com

A voyage of discovery of one of the all-time great symphonies, Beethoven’s era-defining Eroica. Forged as a powerful expression of the human and spiritual ideals he held close to his heart, Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony tells the story of the hero and his journey towards fulfillment.

Enter the transformed world of a heroically inspired Oval Space where you’ll greeted by the friendly team. Unwind from the stresses of your week; catch up with friends, enjoy a drink from the bar (including a delicious Eroica-inspired cocktail) and a bite to eat on the terrace; explore the space before getting comfortable for the concert, with drink in hand.

In an intimate and beautiful setting, on a comfy sofa if you feel like treating yourself and a friend, this is a wonderful opportunity to get close to the full sound of Beethoven’s orchestra and experience the struggle, anguish, and triumph of his epic portrayal of heroism through music. Nicholas, the conductor, will set the scene with his friendly introductions, sharing some of the stories and ideas behind the music.

After the final resounding chord of the symphony has died away, the bar reopens and the evening becomes social – a little party you are warmly invited to… To help set the mood, there will be some suitably cool live jazz, which we will be announcing nearer the time. Enjoy the atmosphere, relax with friends and meet the young, talented musicians who play in the orchestra, as well as Nicholas and the team.

Times:
7pm – Arrive and explore
8pm – Last admission to venue
8:30pm – The Concert: Eroica
