Daytime gigs for parents, and little ones with discerning musical taste!
A SoundsCreative Projects event
Buy a season ticket for all 3 gigs for just £20!
ALL GIGS START AT 11am
For all parents who miss going to gigs in the evening, Tots Gigs is a monthly morning series of acoustic gigs for parents with babies/toddlers in tow.
Each month we bring to the stage an eclectic mix of established & emerging musicians from the London world, folk and contemporary music scene. From percussive alt-folk via classical minimalism to high-energy experimental creativity, we always programme a new artist/band to perform so there is music for all tastes.
These relaxed, inspiring and intimate gigs are for appreciative audiences of parents along with sleeping, feeding, wandering, dancing tots.
SoundsCreative Projects is working in collaboration with The Nest Collective to bring the brightest and best of folk, world and new music performers to the Tots Gigs stage.
