Whilst basking in a record-breaking heatwave this summer, the team and I have had our focus firmly on autumn. We’ve been busy preparing a programme
of events ranging from circus, comedy, music, theatre to poetry, so there’s something to suit all tastes.
We’re taking a year off panto so we can mount an even bigger and better show next year. Oh yes we are! So look out for details the coming months about our 2020 Christmas, family-friendly pantomime. You won’t be disappointed.
For this season’s highlight, we’re heading off into the snowy mountains of Switzerland to meet Mimi and the Mountain Dragon. We’re excited to be working with Skewbald Theatre Company who have adapted Michael Morpurgo’s book to create a children’s theatre piece full of puppets, magic and of course, dragons! This production is a
delightful snow-filled treat for children.
It’s always refreshing to welcome new artists to our venue and this season is no exception. Making his Hoxton Hall debut is actor Justin Butcher performing the highly commended Walking to Jerusalem. With its inventive blend of theatre and stand-up, this emotive piece is based on the real life experiences of 100 pilgrims who, in 2017, walked from London to Jerusalem.
Also appearing here for the first time are Certain Black whose Circus Circus Circus promises to deliver a brand new dynamic blend of circus talent to our stage. And of course, we value our long-term partners and collaborators who enrich our programme. The iconic,Jumoke Fashola and Jazz Verse Jukebox will be performing in November; hugely popular Swing Time Dance Company will be presenting a spookily spectacular Halloween Swing plus, after their mesmerising show last season, Aircraft Circus are back and guaranteeing to turn up the heat even more with Sizzling Hot Circus. Providing the comedy, we have none other than the adorable and multitalented Judi Love with Love2Laugh.
From Nina Harries’ debut album launch to rising star Benedict Cork, followed by U.S. talent Caroline Polacheck – who is described as having one of the most exciting voices on the music scene today – to the morbid but romantic Amigo The Devil, this season’s music at Hoxton Hall is nothing if not varied.
Finally, if you fancy a tour behind the scenes of our Grade II* listed building with its magnificent theatre, why not join us for Open House. We hope you’re excited and inspired by the events we have programmed for you and look forward to welcoming you to Hoxton Hall this autumn.
