Beautiful evening in a great space - lovely and very intimate. Extraordinary to hear such wonderful music in such a venue - a rare experience. Loved the fact that it was small, friendly and laid back on the surface but very professionally organised. Visited St Mark’s on 2016-11-26

An excellent evening. Professionally executed and a wide range of multitalented artists all of whom engaged the audience. Three stages, busking musicians in the canteen and all areas magically decorated gave me a sense of being at a mini Womad but being in Dalston much easier to reach. More evenings like these please.
