The Junction has wasted no time getting back into the swing of things this summer, with a host of live and online events
On 6 June, catch the stunning aerial theatre show Aidy the Awesome online. Watch as the performers fly and spin through the air, working your way through your superhero activity pack (included with booking) as you go – it’s perfect for the whole family to enjoy. For a folk music fix, The Rheingans Sisters are coming up on 15 June. The duo have scored their fair share of accolades at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards over the years – and for good reason! Get ready for an evening of rich, spirited folk music at this socially-distanced live event. You can also join talented singer-songwriter and pianist Belinda O’ Hooley (pictured left), at the venue on 21 June. Elsewhere on the programme, catch stand-up sensation Suzi Ruffell’s new show, Dance Like Everyone’s Watching, on 29 June, which delivers her trademark mix of storytelling, observations and just
a smidgen of social politics.
On 22 July, the up-and-coming Central Cee will be at the Junction with his melodic, grime-like sounds. He’s definitely one to watch. You can also catch some ambient and enriching soul music from Stone Foundation, a band whose vibrant brand of British soul is bound to make you smile, on 31 July. On 12 August, The Primitives will hit the Junction with their Crash! Bang! Wallop! set, harking back to the 80s and 90s with a sound that has made them one of the most adored alternative rock acts around. Magician Pete Firman’s new show, Bag of Tricks, is on 14 August, blending comedy and jaw-dropping magic live on stage for an evening of light-hearted entertainment. On 21 August, meanwhile, catch Cambridge-formed band Sweet Crisis, who will be showcasing their energetic new album, Tricks On My Mind.
