So I'm guessing you want a good night, with good music but also the opportunity to discover some of the best grass roots talent that London and the UK has to offer. Well in that case The Forte has got exactly what you're looking for.

The Forte Presents... is a regular night of cool, rich vibes where we give the opportunity to some of the best hand selected UK artists from a spectrum of genres to perform the art and music to you the London and Dalston Pond faithful.

Tired of the typical rave night or club bar playing the typical commercial music? Not to worry, DJ Man Like Rico will be spinning the highest curated mixes from a plethora of genres where you may even come up to him and ask "Who was that?!". 

The aim of The Forte is to empower those with cherished skills and talent to project them in a way that commonly may not be available to them, but more importantly provide those within London an opportunity to experience an alternative type of night where you shake a leg, grab a drink (or 2) but enjoy some great high energy performances in between.

Throw in some moments of high energy talks and interaction, we hope you're able to connect with those within the music and creative scene but beyond it. 

With our past two events in South London, The Forte looks to bring the same high energy to East London, to a whole new audience.

So come through, enjoy; meet some great people (we always invite the greatest of people) and you never know it may even inspire you to find your forte, live your forte and love your forte!

A word from the chef:
Uncle Monte's at POND is about the monte cristo sandwich. Invented in 1923, it's a cheesy, meaty, fried sandwich dusted with powder sugar and served with strawberry jam, yup that's right jam.
