Avant Garden Gig

Loading Events

Welcome to our first Avant Garden Gig at the Greenhouses! Avant Garden hosts eclectic and accessible music and performance once a month on a Sunday. For our first gig, we are delighted to have:

Steve Beresford on Electronics
Steve Beresford has been a central figure in the British and international spontaneous music scenes for over forty years. He has worked with The Slits, Najma Akhtar, Stewart Lee, Ivor Cutler, Prince Far-I, Alan Hacker, Tania Chen, Ray Davies, Mandhira De Saram, The Flying Lizards, Zeena Parkins, The Portsmouth Sinfonia, Ilan Volkov, Rachel Musson, Vic Reeves, Lore Lixenberg and many others.

Charlotte Keeffe on Trumpet and Flugelhorn
Charlotte Keeffe wears her love for free improvisation, jazz and experimental music on her sleeve referring to her instruments as “sound brushes”. Harnessing the power of art for social change is a crucial part of Charlotte’s musical identity. Over the years she has served as Assistant Musical Director of the London Gay Big Band, and has championed gender and diversity equality, as part of the Parliamentary award-winning Women in Jazz Media team.

Richard Sanderson & Bill Thompson
Amplified Melodion with electronics

Richard has been the curator of the Linear Obsessional music label and  is a long time participant and promoter of the left-field London music scene.  Bill Thompson is a sound artist and composer. He performs as a soloist and with a number of groups including M/H/T with Jan Hendrickse and Tom Mudd, Airfield with choreographer Ian Spink, and in the past with Keith Rowe, Faust, EXAUDI and others. Although originally trained as a guitarist, Thompson has worked with live electronics for the better part of 15 years.

Georgina Brett
Georgina explores sound with electronic and acoustic instruments, often using her own voice in a sampled choir. She continues to develops live vocal collages using a range of techniques and in 2021 began integrating her own poetry into her music.

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.
