Last week we played host to Dot To Dot 2018, a festival renowned for uncovering the most exciting emerging artists from across the UK and around the world!
We’re incredibly thrilled to have hosted some amazing acts, including festival headliners The Horrors!

Rocking some massive platform shoes frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie commanded the stage as the bottom floor of the Albert Hall was literally bouncing under our feet.
#2 Headliners – The Horrors
