We make a great team

We asked for help and you gave it. Thanks to our ‘Friends of SPI’ coming forward to volunteer help for our first professional performance at Stanley Halls, we, together, put on a great show.

Of course, it was the Steve Knightley ‘Grow Your Own Gig’ tour at Stanley Halls last Wednesday night. It was wonderful. Great music, great crowd, stunning building, good beer, and if we say so ourselves, friendly staff.

So if you didn’t get there, here is a taster. But we can’t replicate the wonderful ‘feel’ of the event.

Just before the gig, Steve made a little film about Stanley Halls click here to see it.

Capacity crowd for our first professional performance


Anticipation before the start. Steve preferred to perform in the auditorium rather than on the stage, so it had an intimate feel to the concert.


The bar, and local Clarence and Frederick beer, was a huge hit.  A surprisingly large amount of red wine drunk that night!

Steve Knightley Live at Stanley Halls; we gotta gig!

Yes, it’s true. You asked and we give, here is the first, professional music concert at Stanley Halls for goodness knows how many years.

Steve Knightley, one half of prominent folk duo, Show of Hands, is doing a solo acoustic set in his Grow Your Own Gig tour. More used to frequenting venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Steve wants this tour to be a bit more intimate, so where better than Stanley Halls? Find out more about Steve and the tour here.

8pm Wednesday 5th February at Stanley Halls, 12 South Norwood Hill, London SE25 6AB.

Also, the bar will be open and beer will be from local brewer, Clarence and Frederick.
