// Richard Walters @ Sebright Arms (1)

This week’s ‘what’s on’ features a fair amount of music, but we are certainly not complaining – in fact, we cannot think of a better way to welcome in Spring than with a showcase of refreshing talent you can sway along to. Kicking off the week is Richard Walters, who will be playing at Sebright Arms on Tues 22 March with support from both Cooper and Holiday Oscar. Walters has been described as ‘an unstoppable song-writing force’ whose work is ‘heart-achingly beautiful’ and ‘unashamedly sentimental’; we would like to say thank you to Famous Friends Records for creating this event, an opportunity to listen to Walters’ fourth studio album live.

// New Business @ The Pickle Factory (2)

The Pickle Factory is Oval Space’s new sister venue, the destination for those who want a night curated by some of the most talented DJs around. On Thurs 24 March New Business is heading back to The Pickle Factory, accompanied by guests Massimiliano Pagliara and Luv Jam and with the intent to put a tropical spin on the typical house sound. Pagliara loves 80s disco records – his house music appears as a synthesis of these sounds – whereas Luv Jam prefers to entice his listeners with a ‘throbbing minimalism’; each are worth seeing on their own, but the both in one night? Definitely an exciting prospect. More information here:

// Young Women’s Evening @ The London Buddhist Centre

‘Meeting Ourselves in the Mirror: An Explanation of Image’ is a workshop taking place at The London Buddhist Centre on Fri 25 March. With a focus on creative writing/ image making, this workshop uses these literary techniques to unlock refreshed and more open ways of thinking, ways that we often don’t have the time to explore in the rush of modern living. A writing workshop that thinks about writing and language from a spiritual perspective. More information here:

// Debi Hall @ The Misty Moon (4)

The Misty Moon is a Bethnal Green staple, a traditional pub that serves good food, plenty of alcohol, and which boasts an inexhaustible line up of live music acts. If you plan on visiting this week then we would suggest doing so on Fri 25 March, when you will hear live music from the versatile Debi Hall. Debi has been singing for over 10 years, touring the Uk, Europe, and Asia with her voice that is ‘a vintage mixture of jazz, swing, and country’. This woman is experienced, and knows how to create an atmosphere with seemingly no effort on her part. More information here:

// Coven: Spellbound @ The Resistance Gallery (5)

As its name suggests, The Resistance Gallery is a place where the most diverse, weird, and unique elements of culture come together in a stand against the mainstream which often excludes them. Coven: Spellbound is an evening which follows this ethos to a tee, so head down on Sat 26 March for a night of unorthodox entertainment ranging from cabaret to theatre performances with a twist. This night allows you ‘to explore and enjoy the liminal space between reality and unreality’; more information here:
