Once our daytime Makers Market and Workshops close down at 6pm, the lights will be lowered and the Makers Evening will ease into action. On the first floor all the market stalls will be packed away, while up in the lounge the workshop tables will be cleared and will be available to be booked for the Winter Whisky Pairing Menu on offer. The meat & whiskey theme in that room will be taken further with both Woodford Reserve master classes and a Meat Raffle being hosted there. While upstairs in our Makers Kitchen the cocktail bar will be open all night along with Ben Spalding’s seasonal menu.

We are sorry to announce at short notice that due to a family emergency, DJ Theo Parrish has to return to Detroit and will not be able to play at Makers this Saturday. Our thoughts are with him and his family at this time. In Theo’s absence, we’ve secured Andrew Ashong who will be playing a live set in the middle floor lounge. Andrew’s 2013 single ‘Flowers’ on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature label won ‘Track of the Year at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards last year.

With this late change in mind we have decided to waive the £10 entrance fee to Makers Evening, and any current ticket holders should contact Billetto to receive a full refund. While its unfortunate that Theo cannot play now, hearing Andrew Ashong live for free will be a special way to round off a day and night of Makers.


Local East London boy Andrew Ashong has burst on to the scene over the past year. His breakout track ‘Flowers’ on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature label won ‘Track of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2013. Andrew was lauded on every credible music blog and when asked, what is behind the excitement of this record, Theo Parrish said; “The Funk. Right under my nose were all the essential elements: simplicity, drive, and honesty gained from heartfelt experience in Andrew Ashong’s music. It’s more than just that. It’s human.”

Over the past year since then Andrew’s reputation has continued to grow with a string of stunning live performances at festivals around Europe. So much so Andrew has recently been nominated as Live Act of the year by DJ Mag. This is a rare opportunity to hear him play live for free!
