James Bay

Thursday 26th November | 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm

We’re incredibly proud to be welcoming James Bay to The Clapham Grand for an intimate, socially distanced show in association with mental health charity Mind!

Lianne La Havas, The Staves, Jack Garratt, Bear’s Den, and James Bay are all extremely excited to announce a series of live shows in South and East London for November, and their first performances in front of fans since before the start of lockdown back in early March.

Fans are being encouraged back into live rooms for the intimate live performances by artists who usually play to rooms far bigger in these tentative early steps back into the live arena. It’s an exciting, rare opportunity to share in the missed magic of live performance, whilst safely complying with current government restrictions, with ticket buyers only allowed to attend with members of their own household and at a maximum of four tickets per group/’bubble’.

It’s an encouraging next step for a live sector which has been in a state of flux, and whilst these shows will work at greatly reduced capacity to comply with social distancing, it heralds an encouraging boost for the music industry and a promising first look ahead as to how to best bring bands back onto stages, touring crews back to their jobs, and fans back into live rooms.

The shows will take place at Clapham Grand, which has already trialled some successful live shows over the past few weeks, and at the newly refurbished Hackney Church. Tickets for all shows are on sale from Friday morning via Dice priced at £25, with an opt-in to donate to the mental health charity, Mind.

SEATING & TABLES PRICING & ALLOCATION

Due to physical distancing all tickets are sold in pairs & tables of 4 across The Stalls and The Circle. If the Upper Circle is open we can sell tickets in allocation of 1-4 people per group with unreserved seating. When you go to purchase your tickets you can see the area of the venue you are buying within and DICE will automatically allocated the best seats within that area.

ABOUT THE CLAPHAM GRAND

The Clapham Grand has been providing entertainment for 120 years, and is one of the UK’s oldest remaining Variety Halls. After a successful crowdfunder campaign to prevent permanent closure during Covid-19 we are beginning to open with a run of physically distanced events, which whilst operating at a loss gives as the chance to bring our staff back to work, time to rebuild out business model and most of all have you back to be entertained here again.

In 1900 we were built to give performers a stage and our customers an amazing night out, with everyone from Charlie Chaplin and Morecambe & Wise to Oasis and Bianca Del Rio performing, and we are incredibly grateful to be able to reopen and continue to do so. 

Thank you so much for all your support so far, we can’t wait to have you back with us.
