Evenings of free live performance in our theatre bar.

Mon 13 Feb to Mon 10 Jul


This event is part of: 
Once a month the Cockpit Theatre opens its bar to welcome singers, poets, musicians, and spoken word artists alike to perform as part of COCKPIT LATES. A night of free entertainment following the main house show, with featured performers plus open mic slots available on the night.

Our next event on Monday 15th May will feature Ella Bellsz & Rele Molapo with their new song series 'We Are Home' 

We Are Home’ is a series of theatrical songs devised and composed by Ella Bellsz and Rele Molapo. Trained at East 15 Acting School, they are members of Backpack Theatre, a political theatre company they set up with their peers after graduating. After devising their first play, 'Bibs, Boats Borders & Bastards' which covered the refugee crisis, they wanted to continue exploring the theme of home. This seems all the more important in our current global political environment of unrest towards immigration and multiculturalism. Suitable for a global audience, this show presents universal ideas of love and friendship through different languages, music styles and movement. Ella and Rele share their musings on the meaning of home.

Information on the featured performers for each month will be update here, so keep an eye out for who's joining us next!
