We are delighted to be joined for this Special Christmas Kirtan by Martin Solomon (violin/sitar), Chrissie O’Keeffe (vocals/guitar/percussion) and Jo Hanstead (vocals/dholak/harmonium).


Chanting the many Names of the Divine together uplifts and can take us to a deeper space within ourselves. At it’s deepest level it is simply Creation Singing to the Creator.


One of the many beauties of kirtan lies in the fact that no special ability or training is required.


Cost: £10 / £8 on the door


This kirtan will be in aid of End Child Poverty, a UK charity, with the belief that every child should live in a family that is able to afford the basic essentials, working to end child poverty by 2020.  New figures released in September 2018 report that 4.5 million children live in poverty, which is equivalent to 30% of all UK children.  Currently the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston, is spending two weeks touring some of the UK’s poorest towns and cities, visiting food banks and community groups and meeting MPs, government officials, academics and families in hardship.  He will publish an interim report on his findings before leaving the UK.


This is a regular Kirtan on the last Sunday of alternate months (there will be no kirtan in November 2018)


Next Kirtan: Sunday 24th February 2019
