9 – 25 September 2016, Somerset House, London.
Wednesday to Friday 16.00 – 21.00
Saturday & Sunday 13.00 – 18.00

Fascinated by the rich and largely unearthed social history of Waterloo Bridge and its rebuilding during World War II by a predominantly female workforce comes a brand new work by composer and artist Claudia Molitor.

Collect a headset from Somerset House to begin your 40 minute musical experience that features new compositions by Molitor, with contributions from drum and synth duo AK/DK, folk band Stick in the Wheel and poet SJ Fowler. The Singing Bridge weaves you along Waterloo Bridge and its surrounding paths to give you time and space to consider your relationship to this bridge and its environs. More here.

Coming next

Thanks to all who came along last night for a hot and sultry Other Room. Our next event is in the cool of early October and it’s a really special one. We’re very  pleased to be hosting Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee, over from the US. Maggie O’Sullivan completes the line-up to make a real power trio. Hope to see you there.

Line-up for Thursday

Unfortunately, David Kennedy won’t be able to make it to our next event on Thursday 23rd August. But we’ve still got three great performers: Joey Frances, Wanda O’Connor and James Wilkes, back at our usual haunt of The Castle Hotel , Oldham Street, Manchester. 7.00 start, free entry as always. Hope to see you there.
