Avant Garden Gig

Doors open at 4.00pm, with music from 4.30pm

Join us for our third gig of the season. Four beautiful sound-artists from varied traditions and backgrounds, plus wonderful vegetarian food and vegan ice-cream.

Ghost Mind
Pete Robson, Zhuyang Liu, Charlie Folorunshu & Stuart Wilding
(Trumpet/piano, guzheng, voice & percussion)
Ghost Mind are usually a trio, but are joined for this gig by Zhuyang Liu, creating a four-person quintet, the fifth member being the titular “Ghost”.
The concept of Ghost Mind was devised while the original members were playing together with the Cheltenham Improvisers Orchestra. The idea was to carry on that experimental, improvised sound with an added backtrack – the Ghost – in a more compact trio replacing the Orchestra and creating a soundscape with space difficult to create in a larger group.
Having formed in 2014, the band, based in Cheltenham and London, have played across the UK and recently returned from a tour of Germany where they also collaborated with Gottingen trio, Brainville Desperados.

Melinda Bronstein

Melinda is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, photographer and filmmaker currently living in Margate. She started as keyboardist and backing singer for Americana-tinged Absentee, before shifting to the drums for grungy Wet Paint, indie-rockers Singing Adams and many other bands in between including, in recent years, as percussionist and backing singer with The Leaf Library.

We put on our Gigs at the Greenhouses to let people hear brilliant music, enjoy our lovely gardens and to raise money so that the community can benefit from BPCG seven days a week.


We are offering a Pay What You Can Scheme for these workshops to make them accessible to everyone. We know that ticket price is a huge barrier for some, and the Pay What You Can model offers people who can afford to pay a bit more the chance to support others who can’t.

Getting to us

BPCG is in the middle of Brockwell Park, between the tennis courts and the walled gardens. Follow the signs.
If you are driving to the gig, we recommend parking your car on Dulwich Road or near Dulwich Road.
Entrance and exit from the Park should be via the Park’s Lido Gates on Dulwich Road.
The park will be dark when you leave the gig so everyone must leave in groups with torches.
