CABLE STREET COLLECTIVE REVIEW AND WHAT’S COMING UP @ THE HORTON EPSOM..

Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 10 Nov 2022

Growing up with African music surrounding me, I’m always energized by a drum beat – throw in some beautiful guitar melodies, some vibrant horns and wicked high-energy vocals and you have Cable Street Collective.

I was so excited when I was invited to attend my first performance at The Horton last weekend, and particularly to see this band. I have been involved, as a volunteer, with The Horton from the beginning and have loved watching it develop into the amazing local space that it is now.

Arriving at The Horton on Saturday, and seeing how beautifully the space has been converted was incredible. The lighting and acoustics in the room created a fun and welcoming space, which was then amplified with the music from the band.

Cable Street Collective had everyone bopping along – the songs were eclectic, vibrant and catchy, and I spent most of the evening being surprised by every new song. I’ve also since followed them on Spotify!

Fiona and the boys, as she affectionately calls them, kept us entertained, made us laugh, had most of the audience up on their feet singing dancing and clapping along. It was a really enjoyable and interactive evening and I left feeling so incredibly grateful to the team who have worked tirelessly to create this space for our community.

Hopefully the band will come back to The Horton again soon, but for now, they have:

A singer-songwriter night on Thursday 17 November. Tickets start at £15, and it is an evening of showcasing regional musical talent, hosted by Epsom duo Dragonfly Sky.

Jayne McGhee of Grow Cook Enjoy is hosting a wreath making workshop on Saturday 03 December. All the natural materials that you need to craft your wreath will be provided. Tickets from £40.

Following The Elf Factory in 2021, Hikapee returns with circus adventure Moonfall. Moonfall is a 45-minute show about two boisterous siblings who share a love for climbing and circus-ing, but who absolutely do not like sharing! Suitable for ages 3+. Tickets from £15.
