Never miss another 'Harry Baker' show
ADVENTurous: Mike Frost, Ann Pettifor, Ann Morisy, Abdul-Rehman Malik, Ruth Valerio, Harry Baker, Iain Archer, Hope&Social
An inaugural one-day festival of ideas, artistry, spoken word and live music.
In the midst of struggling global economies, political transition and the apparent end of the world (according to the Mayan calendar at least!), the Christian season of Advent can be viewed as a sign of new arrivals, a world re-imagined, cultures disrupted and paradigms well and truly shifted.
Bringing together thinkers, activists and artists from different faith traditions (and none) for a day of exploration, debate and wonder, ADVENTurous is an event hosted jointly by Greenbelt and Union Chapel, drawing on a number of creative partners from a range of different networks – all with an interest in trying conspire hopefully towards a better tomorrow.
As well as contributions from renowned thinkers and speakers Mike Frost, Ann Pettifor, Ann Morisy, Abdul-Rehman Malik and Ruth Valerio, there will be artistry woven throughout the set-piece talks, panels and debate from Harry Baker by day, followed by an evening of great musicality with Iain Archer and Hope & Social.
And as if that wasn’t enough to wow your senses, there will also be a great visual arts exhibition hung around the venue.
See adventurous.me.uk/ for further information.

Iain Archer's reputation has been built considerably by his part in the indie rock outfit Snow Patrol, although his career as a solo artist precedes the band by almost a decade, having released several albums in the 1990s on the Sticky Music label. Iain's award-winning songwriting is now once again flourishing, having released the album Flood The Tanks in 2004 and touring on his own once more.
Iain Archer tour dates
A band born - like so many - out of an inebriated haze one night in a pub in Leeds. Presumably having experienced occasional shifts in and out of sobriety since, Hope&Social are now a commentary on the condition of English life, but commentary by heavy guitars, honky-tonk piano and harmonious vocals.
