Celebrate the release of Venn Smyth’s album ‘Master of Disguise’ at this one-off live music event at The Glory, East London.
Unashamedly pop, queer artist Venn Smyth writes music that dances around stories of identity and belonging. A classically trained saxophonist, he is now sharing pop music to make you move and think in equal measure. His songs have reached No. 1 on the LGBTQ Music Chart and he was a semifinalist in this year’s Pride’s Got Talent competition.
“Reminded me of short bus, Rufus Wainwright, Jake Shears. Very downtown NYC queer feel about it” Jonny Woo
“Real hints of Elton John… such a powerful voice” Track by Track Podcast
With special guests to be announced and every track from the album showcased, Venn Smyth returns to where his pop music journey began – recognise that red corridor? Expect sax, synths, storytelling and queer pop with finesse!
THIS SHOW IS DOWNSTAIRS
Please note The Glory is a queer venue run by queer people, for queer people and their allies. We operate a zero-tolerance policy towards homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny and discrimination of any kind. Be respectful or you will be asked to leave. Strictly no office, hen or stag parties allowed.
The Glory is a very old building with pre-existing accessibility issues and while we’ve strived to make the space user friendly, there is no ‘easy’ wheelchair accessibility to all areas of the venue.
MAIN BAR ACCESSIBILITY:
The main bar is accessible, though the toilets are up a flight of 3 stairs with a handrail. Wheelchairs cannot access the toilets however. There is a local restaurant a few doors down who have an accessible toilet that they are happy for our customers to use.
To access shows in the basement there is a narrow flight of 12 stairs with a handrail.
The main bar has plenty of seats and tables. Ticketed shows are seated unless otherwise stated.
