96 Festival at Omnibus Theatre, Clapham

In 1996, the Pride festival took place on Clapham Common and attracted 250,000 to party on the Common. In celebration of this, Omnibus Theatre, Clapham created its 96 Festival, a celebration of queerness and theatre. The festival returns to Omnibus for June with a whole range of acts.

We are pleased to be presenting Out of the Shadows at 96 Festival on 16 June 2024, when Ben Vonberg-Clark (tenor), Jonathan Eyers (baritone) and Nigel Foster (piano) will be performing a programme of my music including the cantatas Out of the Shadows, inspired by reading a history of gay life in the 19th century, and Et expecto, about a desperate search for eternal life, plus love songs setting Black American poet Carl Cook and Michelangelo. 

You can get a taster of the programme with Ben Vonberg-Clark and Nigel Foster on YouTube.
